I originally went to Dr. Kelly because another dentist was recommending a root canal on a tooth I wasn’t have any pain or issues with. I feel Dr. Kelly is very honest and doesn’t recommend unnecessary treatments and the tooth remains fine to this day. Dr. Kelly’s hygienist Melissa is so good that getting a teeth cleaning is actually ENJOYABLE! Dr. Kelly is very thorough and precise. I have received fillings and a crown for a cracked molar. He also replaced a filling on my front tooth and it was a better color match to my actual tooth.I would definitely recommend Dr. Kelly!

Thank you Dr. Kelly, Lori & Melissa! (Oh And the nice new girl I can’t remember her name)

Scared of the Dentist? We Offer Sedation Dentistry

Many patients avoid going to the dentist due to anxiety or fear. We've seen firsthand how life-changing dental care can be and strive to ensure each patient feels comfortable and at ease during their visits with us, so they can get the treatment they need. Our Albuquerque, NM, office offers sedation dentistry options to make each visit as stress-free as possible:

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is a mild sedative administered through a mask, with effects wearing off at the end of the procedure. Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide induces a calm, relaxing feeling that may even make you giggly. Because nitrous oxide wears off quickly, patients can drive themselves home and resume their day normally.

Oral Conscious

For patients with more severe anxiety, Dr. Kelly prescribes medication before your appointment to induce a deeply relaxed state. You will be fully conscious but likely won't remember anything from your procedure, allowing treatment to go by with ease. Oral conscious sedation takes a few hours to wear off, so a friend or loved one is required to drive you home.

Our Mission

"Our mission is to provide every individual we touch with dental care that leads to better health in a safe, comfortable and efficient environment" Timothy M. Kelly, DMD, PA

"He's Given Me My Life Back" Lynn's Testimonial

Before receiving care from Dr. Kelly, Lynn suffered from significant teeth grinding and TMJ disorder that caused near-constant headaches. Dr. Kelly was able to significantly improve the jaw issues that affected Lynn her whole life, so now she is nearly headache-free and able to live life to the fullest.

Featured Services

TMJ Treatment

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder results in many irritating and painful symptoms, including regular headaches and chronic jaw pain. Through a variety of therapies, our dentist can correct your jaw alignment and provide relief that may be truly life-changing.

Learn More about TMJ Treatment

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Obstructive sleep apnea can prevent you from getting a restful night's sleep and cause snoring that may bother your loved ones. The condition is caused by the soft tissues of the mouth and throat constricting the airway during sleep. Our dentist can provide an oral appliance that shifts your jaw and opens your airway.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the best option for restoring missing teeth. These posts resemble prosthetic tooth roots that fuse with your jawbone and support dental restorations like crowns or dentures. Our dentist performs all aspects of the dental implant procedure at our office without the need for referrals to other specialists.

Misaligned teeth are not only an aesthetic concern. Dental misalignment also leads to an increased risk of jaw pain and other oral health issues, as crooked teeth are more difficult to clean. Our dentist practices biologic orthodontics with an emphasis on aligning the teeth with the jaw.

Contact Us to Learn More about Orthodontics

Same-Day Restorations

Other dental practices may make you wait weeks between appointments as they send molds of your bite to off-site labs for the fabrication of crowns. Our dentist, however, utilizes the E4D CAD/CAM dental system to produce precisely crafted crowns in an hour or less, saving you time and hassle.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Chips, cracks, and other imperfections in your teeth can make it hard to smile and laugh with confidence. We offer a range of procedures to enhance your appearance at our Albuquerque, New Mexico, office. Choose from popular procedures such as veneers, teeth whitening, or a smile makeover to achieve the cosmetic results of your dreams.

My husband and I started going to Dr. Kelly over a year ago and he does a great job-from exams to fillings and an urgent crown. His staff is superior and professional as well. I actually never thought I’d say this, but I actually enjoy getting my regular cleanings now!

I was terrified of the dentist and so avoided it for many years until I couldn't ignore it any longer. I am so glad I found Dr. Kelly. He and his staff are so kind and so good at what they do. They don't make me feel silly about my anxiety surrounding dental work. Also, I feel no pain, even when having very old fillings and cavities removed. I highly recommend this practice.

The Importance of Timely Dental Care

Protects Your Oral Health

Early detection of gum disease and tooth decay is key to protecting your oral health. By catching issues early on, Dr. Kelly can prevent them from progressing into more serious concerns at our Albuquerque, New Mexico, office.

Saves Money

An untreated cavity can quickly progress to needing root canal therapy and a dental crown. Regular dental appointments prevent the need for more extensive procedures, saving you and your family money in the long run.

Refreshes Your Smile

Bad breath, yellow teeth, and decay are often the result of neglecting dental care. By staying on top of routine appointments, patients can enjoy a healthy and attractive smile year-round.

Relieves Headaches and Jaw Pain

Many patients don't realize they can go to a dentist for nagging headache pain. Dr. Kelly has an expert understanding of the jaw and can provide the life-changing relief you need.

Esthetic Dentistry for Remarkable Results How BOTOX® Cosmetic Can Benefit You

Dr. Kelly has undergone special training in esthetic dentistry to provide injectables to his patients. He has an expert understanding of facial anatomy and can identify the most optimal injection site for the best results.

BOTOX Cosmetic temporarily relaxes muscles to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. This versatile treatment can be used as a standalone treatment to rejuvenate your appearance, combined with dental procedures for superior results, or even used to relieve TMJ symptoms. Some of the many benefits include:

Reduce Signs of Aging

Dr. Kelly uses BOTOX Cosmetic to reduce facial signs of aging around the eyes, mouth, and forehead. The treatment takes just 15 minutes and lasts for around three to four months, giving you the smoother and younger appearance you desire.

Comprehensive Treatment

Many patients who opt for veneers, teeth whitening, or other cosmetic dentistry procedures combine treatment with BOTOX cosmetic for comprehensive results. This results in a luminous, younger-looking smile and refreshed skin to match.

Alleviate TMJ Pain

TMJ pain is often caused by tense muscles around the jaw bone. Combining BOTOX injections with TMJ treatment can reduce pain in the area by temporarily relaxing the muscles and providing much needed relief to patients with headaches and jaw pain.

Biologic Orthodontics An Innovative Approach

When you choose orthodontics at our dental office in Albuquerque, our dentist will provide more than the cosmetic benefits of straighter teeth. Dr. Kelly carefully plans orthodontic care so that your teeth are aligned in the optimal position for your unique jaw anatomy.
