About Us


Welcome to Lanz, Nason & Lopez, DDS, MS, PA

Our dedicated team at Gaston Perio strives to provide the highest level of comprehensive periodontal and implant dentistry in a friendly, caring and professional manner.

We believe that the most satisfying and predictable dentistry is delivered with a team approach utilizing restorative dentists, orthodontists and other dental specialists as needed. This insures that our patient is receiving the best care available today, free of constraints and limitations imposed by insurance companies and other managed care entities.

We welcome you as a new patient to our practice and promise to evaluate your dental condition thoroughly. We will collect necessary diagnostic data, consult with other health care providers as needed, and discuss our findings and recommend treatment options with you completely. If you find that you are not yet ready to pursue the ideal treatment that you desire, we can discuss alternative options or ways to stage your treatment over time.

Our team will be available to answer your questions and guide you through the diagnostic and treatment phases. They are exceptionally good at what they do and take great pride in providing excellent, comfortable care. Several of our team members have helped us serve Gaston County for many of the past 40 years. We have developed many wonderful relationships with our patients and hope to do so with you.
