Our Story

We are an orthodontic team committed to meeting your needs and exceeding your expectations.

We are a team. Each member dedicated to providing the absolute best patient experience in Albuquerque. We sincerely care about the individual sitting in our chair-we cheer our patients on in milestones, comfort in the hard times, and truly celebrate when they see their smile in the mirror on the final day of treatment.

Each of our orthodontic assistants is a registered dental assistant. A requirement we have to ensure our patients receive the highest quality in care. Each team member has a minimum of 7 years of experience in the field and has been with our office for many years. They are experienced and knowledgeable in the field and are a lot of fun to be around.
