Orthodontics

All of our orthodontic services are performed by a certified orthodontist, not a general dentist. Our orthodontic specialists offer a free consultation to patients up to age 18. After a thorough evaluation, the orthodontist will explain in detail your individual treatment plan and your treatment coordinator will go over all insurance benefits, costs and payment options. In some cases, we can even offer same day braces so you’ll be on your way to a straighter, beautiful, healthier smile in no time!

Tawnya

From the ladies at the front desk who check your kids in, to the dental assistants and dentists, along with the ladies who check you out and reschedule your child’s next appointments, they’re all very nice and amazing. They listen to my concerns and make sure to answer each question I have and also made my daughter feel very comfortable. She is 12 and still gets nervous to go to the dentist. The whole staff is amazing!

Eanika

Excellent Staff and Service!! I drive an hour from Albuquerque twice a year to take my kids to the dentistry they love the most. My daughter is now 12 and my son is 9. They have been coming here since they were very little. I have not been able to find any other kids dentistry as this one! I highly recommend it!! They also provide orthodontics services now. If you are looking for a 5 star kids dentist with 5 star service, give Rio Grande Children's Denistry a shot. You wont regret it!

Michelle

Dr. Peck did an amazing job today with our son and his extraction. All of the dentists here including our normal dentist Dr. Chavez are amazing, and are great with our kiddos. Thank you to all the staff at Rio Grande Children’s dentist!

A Non-Traumatic Approach

Being a dentist for kids requires a special set of skills. Our children’s dentists take every care to ensure your children are comfortable throughout their visit.  Our dentists never force treatment on a child. We avoid any traumatizing experiences that may prevent your child from coming to the dentist in the future. Our staff and dentists take the time to explain to our patients what we are going to do before we start and discuss all viable options with parents.   We also encourage parents to stay with their children through every step of treatment. We strive to provide an environment that is candid, transparent and friendly for all patients, parents and staff members. As always, we welcome patient reviews, feedback and suggestions.
