Dr. Kelly’s office is amazing, I’ve had such a wonderful experience as his patient. Going to his office is a first class experience, you’re treated well and the environment is pleasant. Yesterday topped every experience so far, I had my teeth cleaned by Roxanne and I have to say, that was the best teeth cleaning I’ve had in my life!!! I am not kidding! She cared for me & my teeth and explained to me why she did what she was doing. I appreciated her care because it was never unpleasant, she was gentle, gave me breaks, and always made sure I was in a comfortable and optimal position for her to work effectively. I was so impressed and grateful! And I actually learned about my gums and teeth and how to care for them properly at home. When I thanked her, she said “I like to treat people the way I would want to be treated”.

One of my kids has sensory issues which have made dentist appointments hell in the past. The hygienist at this office was just wonderful and understanding. She kept things calm, took things slow and explained every step of the process. That made all the difference in the world. Wonderful experience overall.

Featured Dental Care Services At Our Albuquerque, NM, Practice

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 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.

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 cosmetic procedures at our Albuquerque office such as veneers, teeth whitening, or a smile makeover to achieve the results of your dreams.

Restorative Dentistry

Missing, decayed, or damaged teeth can make it difficult to eat and speak. Restorative dentistry treatment options such as crowns, implants, and dentures can restore your oral function so you can chew and talk confidently. Not only will you have restored function, but you will have a beautiful and natural-looking smile.

Learn About Restorative Dentistry


Well-known for its cosmetic benefits, BOTOX® is also used in the medical and dental fields for issues relating to headaches, TMJ, and more. BOTOX works by using a series of injections, which relax tense muscles in the jaw and head that can cause painful TMJs, tooth pain, and headaches. By relaxing the muscles, BOTOX can relieve tension on your joints and relieve pain, improving your quality of life.

Scared of the Dentist? We Offer Sedation Dentistry

Many patients avoid going to the dentist due to anxiety or fear. 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 the 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.
