Our Story

In 1958 my grandfather, John Lopez, began handcrafting teeth at the Public Denture Clinic in Boise, then later in Caldwell. Our family philosophy of providing a quality product at affordable prices lives on today.

Over 60 years later, his philosophy is the driving force behind New Smile. By crafting each denture by hand (not by automation in China like many other clinics), we take the time to make sure our product is as close to perfection as possible. At New Smile, you can rest assured that our commitment to our craft, customer service and honesty will leave you with a new smile you can be confident in.

Our Team

"We Treat Our Patients Like Family"


I was basically raised inside of a denture clinic. I grew up watching my family manufacture and adjust dentures. My family started manufacturing dentures over 60 years ago right here in the Treasure Valley which is what lead me to want to be a Licensed Denturist. I love building dentures because It gives me the opportunity to have a hand in changing someones smile and life!

I previously managed Public Denture in Caldwell for 10 years where I developed a great foundation for starting my own clinic and was elected Vice President of the Idaho Denturitry Association. I take pride in my work and constantly search for new and innovative ideas to make my products better and state of the art. My patients are truly like family to me and I strive to make their experience a great one. I focus on doing what is best for the patient and not what is going to make my clinic the most money. I've been around this business my entire life and I hope I get the chance to serve you."


Joe grew up in Caldwell, Idaho with eight siblings. He graduated from Caldwell High School in 2001 and decided to stay in the beautiful treasure valley. He worked the previous three years for a dental lab in Meridian.

Since the first day he started with us you could tell he just loves everything about dentures, including the difference it makes in the patients life. He treats each case like it's the most important one striving to produce the best looking and fitting denture possible. He’s a great resource to have at our clinic.
