Johanna Lopez, DDS

I was born and raised in NYC. My family and I moved to Raleigh, NC when I was 18 years old. I attended North Carolina State University, majoring in Nutrition Sciences. During my undergraduate studies, I decided to become a dentist, and was accepted into The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill – School of Dentistry. Following graduation, I attended MAHEC for a one year residency program in general dentistry. As a dentist, I strive to provide excellent dental care and beautiful, healthy smiles for as many people as I can.

I was married on October 17th, 2015 to my husband Alex. We decided to make our permanent home in Asheville because of the beautiful landscape and outdoor activities. During my spare time, I enjoy hiking, jogging, playing on a recreational dodgeball league, baking and movies.


Jason Bodnar, DMD

Dr. Jason Bodnar received his undergraduate degree from the University of Pittsburgh and graduated from Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine in 2003. Jason says, “I love being around people and helping them find best solution for their dental healthcare needs.”

Asheville’s abundant outdoor recreational opportunities and culture make it the perfect home for him and his wife, Jennifer, and their son Zane. In addition to running and biking, Dr. Bodnar enjoys music, motorcycles, and Pittsburgh sports. Go STEELERS!!!
