What to Expect

Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, high-quality dental care.

Office Visits

Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, high-quality dental care. We understand that your child may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to children’s needs and it is our goal to make your child feel comfortable visiting our practice while providing the best care possible.

Your first visit is all about your child’s comfort, happiness, and health

During your child’s first visit, our dental assistants will review their dental and medical history forms, and take X-rays of their teeth and mouth and polish their teeth. Then, the doctor will meet with you and your child to discuss the X-rays, perform any cleaning, create an individual treatment plan, and answer any questions that you may have.

Remember to bring these things with you to your child’s first appointment:

  • Your completed patient information form
  • Your insurance card

Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!

The American Dental Association recommends that children visit the dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep their teeth and gums healthy. We understand that your family has a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing for a dental visit, please remember that an appointment can last between 20 and 40 minutes.

"The staff listens to my concerns and makes sure to answer each question I have. They make my daughter feel very comfortable. She is 12 and still gets nervous to go to the dentist. The whole staff is amazing!"

"I drive an hour from Albuquerque twice a year to take my kids to the dentistry they love the most. I have not been able to find any other kid's dentistry as good as this one! If you are looking for a 5-star kids dentist with 5-star service, give Rio Grande Children's Dentistry a shot. You won't regret it!

"I absolutely love this place! I was able to check on my 16-year-old, 14-year-old, and 5-year-old as they did their cleanings and x-rays. They were fast, friendly, professional, and very polite!"
