Meet Dr. Guardiola
Dr. Lonnie Guardiola was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. After high school, he attended the University of North Texas where he received a Bachelor of Arts in Biology. It was also there that he met his wife, Ashley. From there, he went on to receive his Doctor of Dental Surgery from Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas. He maintains membership with the Academy of General Dentistry, American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association, North Texas Dental Society, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentists, Academy of Sleep Dentistry, Seattle Study Club and The Spear Institute.
Dr. Guardiola has a progressive view of dentistry and how he relays information to his patients. His passion is in educating his patients about their oral health and its role in their overall well-being. “Dentistry has a perception of being something you have to do versus something you want to do. My goal is to change that, and to increase the awareness of the benefits of what modern dentistry has to offer. I think you’ll find relatively quickly, that our team is unique. We’re not here to judge or point fingers, but to help you understand and enjoy your health. The mouth is a window to what’s going on with the rest of the body, often serving as a helpful vantage point for detecting early signs and symptoms for systemic disease. Dentists are frequently the only medical professionals that some people see on a consistent basis, and because of that, we may recognize certain signs of an underlying condition that many would write off as part of “just getting older” such as being tired all the time, snoring, or even headaches and neck pain. Wouldn’t it be a relief for you or a loved one to not experience these on a daily basis? Sure, we want to create beautiful smiles, but dentistry is not about just teeth anymore. We would be remiss to think otherwise.”
In addition to his passion for dentistry, Dr. Guardiola enjoys sports, fitness, reading, playing the guitar, classic cars, and spending time with his family. Dr. Guardiola and his wife have a two year old daughter named Eva. He and his family are members of Watermark Church, and through them, volunteers at the Questcare clinic in Dallas to provide dentistry to those who are otherwise unable to afford it. “Getting to know and serve the people of Wylie over the past five years has been a tremendous blessing. It really reminds me of my own hometown; easy-going, hardworking people that want to be the best they can for their families. I hope to deliver the best dental care possible, and that our patients see us as an extension of our family. I couldn’t think of a better place to raise one.”
