Sometimes, finding a good dentist in Kennewick means selecting a convenient location for you. Other times, it means finding a practice you can trust, one that addresses oral health at all stages of life.

Tri-City Dental Care is conveniently located in Kennewick, while also serving Pasco and Richland.  We have patients come from near and far to see Dr. Antonio Lopez.  Our dynamic team fits all the requirements, as we provide high standard dental services which are tailored to your unique family needs.

Dr. Lopez takes pride in knowing that he can provide you with premium dental care which is performed in a spa-like atmosphere and that our friendly team will walk you through each step if you’re nervous about any of our treatments. We want you to feel comfortable and safe, and that’s because you’re our No.1 priority!

At Tri-City family dentistry, we offer a variety of treatments including:

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a quick and non-invasive cosmetic procedure that involves lightening the natural color of your teeth. Whether time has discolored your teeth, or whether you’ve always dreamt of a beautiful white smile- now you can achieve it!

At our practice, we provide three whitening options:

Professional Bleaching

Usually, this treatment is done in one visit, Dr. Lopez will apply a bleaching agent to the teeth while protecting the gums to reduce or prevent irritation.  If necessary special lights are used to enhance the process.

Whitening Toothpaste

Although we would like to tell you that whitening toothpaste is as effective as other treatments, they are not. Toothpaste is an extremely popular choice, however, they don’t have the power to alter the color of your teeth, but rather merely remove stains and tartar buildup.

At-Home Whitening

We understand that time is of the essence for you. And if you feel more comfortable in your own home, we will bring the treatment to you! This works by applying a whitening gel to a customized mouth guard that can be worn for a few hours or overnight. It’s as easy as pie!


Our team uses the innovative solutions offered by Invisalign, with the help of advanced 3D computer-imaging technology which is guaranteed to straighten your teeth in a virtually invisible way. The clear plastic aligners are custom-made specifically for your teeth, thus all services are tailored to your individual needs.

Dental Implants

Missing teeth or loose dentures can cause many people embarrassment and discomfort. That’s why here at Tri-City Dental Care we offer dental implants, which is a modern way of replacing teeth and enabling you to smile, eat and drink naturally.

A dental implant is made out of three main components: a durable yet tiny titanium screw, a post which attaches to the implant, and a crown. The goal is for your teeth to look as natural as before, and dental implants allow that to become possible.

Emergency appointments

If you have sustained a dental injury or are in excruciating pain, we can in most cases provide you with an emergency dental appointment within 24 hours. If possible, we will even ensure that we will see you on the same day.  This differentiates us from any other dentist in Kennewick.

Teeth cleaning

Proper oral hygiene can be the best preventative measure against dental pain. Our practice offers the removal of dental plaque with the intention of preventing cavities, gingivitis, and periodontal disease.

After the treatment is done, Dr. Lopez will supply you with an invaluable after-care routine which will include brushing, scrubbing and the all-time favorite, flossing.

Spa-like services

Because we understand that some people experience anxiety and fear even at the thought of the dentist’s office, we have combined dental service with ultimate oasis-like spa treatments. Among the amenities offered you can find: Massage chairs, Aromatherapy, and Paraffin hand treatments.

We take pride in knowing that patients are at-ease, feeling comfortable and confident in knowing that their unique individual needs are at the heart of our services.


Dental veneers differ in terms of the material they are made from. These thin and tooth-colored shells can either be:

Porcelain veneers

This type of veneers can provide patients with a natural tooth-like effect. This is considered a popular choice for people who drink coffee or smoke, as porcelain veneers are stain-resistant.

Resin veneers

Created out of glass-like particles, composite resin veneers are a quick solution (can be achieved within a single visit), especially in case of chipped or broken teeth. Because they are easily re-shaped, polished and repaired, resin veneers are most popular with athletes.
