Dr. Lance E. Loveless was born on July 17, 1970, in Dallas, Texas and raised in Spring, Texas. In 1997, he graduated from the University of Texas Dental School in San Antonio, which was named the #1 dental school in a U.S. News and World Report ranking, and began working at Longhorn Dental. After realizing that he wanted to provide the utmost dental care to patients without boundaries, BridgeView Dental was created in November 2000.
Dr. Loveless is proud to be a Fellow of the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI). The LVI Fellowship is so exclusive that there are only 500 Fellows in the world. The Las Vegas Institute is known worldwide for its extremely rigorous, state-of-the-art training in dental practice, including the newest advances in neuromuscular dentistry and other developing dental techniques. With unparalleled educational and technological capabilities, the continuing education and training LVI offers to any dentist who finishes this exclusive program is of invaluable benefit in improving their ability to effectively treat patients.
LVI Fellows are those who have completed a minimum of 278 hours of training at the institute and who have successfully completed a rigorous, comprehensive examination. As a result, an LVI Fellowship is an extremely exclusive designation, with fewer than 500 Fellows having this honor worldwide. BridgeView Dental’s Dr. Lance Loveless is, therefore, extremely proud to have been honored with this notable designation in order to provide his patients with the highest level of care and treatment.
Dr. Loveless is one of only seven percent of general dentists who have achieved Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD). The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) is the only professional association exclusively dedicated to representing the interests and needs of general dentists. To earn the prestigious Fellowship in the AGD, candidates must undergo more than 500 hours of advanced courses in numerous disciplines and pass a rigorous exam.
Dr. Loveless is also a Fellow with The International Association of Physiologic Aesthetics (IAPA). This distinction is given to an elite class of dentists who have taken advanced studies in practice areas such as occlusion, restorative, aesthetic and neuromuscular dentistry.
Hopelessly in love, contrary to his last name, Dr. Loveless married DeAnna in 1999. They have two sons, Gunnar Mateo (Big Gunns), who was born on December 3, 2002, and Max Alejandro (Maximus), who was born on April 13, 2006. Within the family, he likes to indulge his wife with tidbits of dentistry and read dental magazines to his children. He also loves Italian food and is an electronic gadget monger.
Loving all aspects of dentistry, Dr. Loveless is particularly fascinated by cosmetic dentistry – just check out his smile gallery!
