Emergencies do arise - a sudden slip in the bath tub, or an unexpected encounter with a ball bat, or the sidewalk. Please know that we are ready to help. Just call 505-293-7101 to reach us anytime.
It is frequently necessary to schedule appointments during school hours. We will provide necessary school absence forms upon request.
There have been concerns about the use of fluoride. The application of fluoride is optional.
In most instances, because of sufficient spacing between primary teeth, x-rays are not necessary. As a child gets older and begins to exchange teeth, x-rays are needed. Studies have shown that exposure to radiation from dental x-rays is quite minimal.
We are happy to help you electronically file your insurance claims. Please remember that insurance is considered a method of reimbursing the patient for fees paid to the dentist and is not a substitute for payment. Some insurers pay fixed allowances for certain procedures, while others pay a percentage of the total charge. It is your responsibility to pay any deductible amount, co-insurance, or any other balance not paid by your insurance company.
We will file insurance claims for all providers, however we are participating providers for:
We accept cash, personal checks, Visa, MasterCard and Discover. Financing is also available through CareCredit. For our patients without insurance we offer a 10% discount for full payment with cash or check and a 5% discount for full payment with credit card at time of service. The need for an extended payment plan should be discussed with our Financial Specialist. All payment arrangements must be made before starting treatment.
Our office is located in Albuquerque on the Southeast corner of Wyoming and Osuna in the Osuna Professional Center. We are in the Northeast Heights, easily accessible from both I-25 and I-40.
