Your Customized Experience

Booking Your Appointment

Our staff can help you pick a convenient date and time for your visit and schedule your first appointment.
Call (505) 292-2323 or contact us online.

New Patient Paperwork

We’ll provide you with some simple forms to complete before your visit. It shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes to fill them out — we’ll ask for contact details, medical history, and insurance information. You can complete these online via our patient portal in the convenience of your own home.

Show Up to Smiles!

Expect a warm welcome in our modern, beautiful office. Our goal is to make you feel right at home from the moment you step in. You won’t spend much time in our waiting room, but we hope you’ll enjoy all the special touches throughout. We also offer a kid’s play space if you’re accompanied by little ones.

Getting to Know You Better

We offer quiet and private treatment rooms to help you feel comfortable. Your doctor will review your medical history, and talk to you about your goals and concerns. We’ll take x-rays and photographs and provide a gentle dental cleaning.

Diagnosis & Treatment Plan

We’ll explain the status of your oral health and any recommended treatments based on your diagnosis. Patient education is important to us, so we’ll be sure you understand exactly what’s going on and empower you with as much information as you need. We’re ready to answer all your questions!

Navigating Next Steps

From scheduling follow-up care to understanding the estimated cost of your treatment, we’re here to guide you through all the little details. We can check your benefits, submit claims, explain payment options, and more. We want to make this as simple as possible.


Do you treat kids?


Yes, we welcome people of all ages. All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

How much will treatment cost?


The cost of your specific dental treatment will vary depending on the complexity, length, and type of condition. We always discuss the estimated cost of any treatment during your initial visit. In certain cases, if your treatment plan is extensive, we may ask you for more treatment planning time to provide the most accurate quote. For those with insurance, we offer complimentary benefits checks to help you understand your cost estimate. Our patient care coordinator is here to help — give us a call at (505) 292-2323.

Do you treat those with dental anxiety?


Yes. We understand that many people have a fear of going to the dentist and receiving dental treatment. Our team does a great job of helping patients feel completely at ease. From our private rooms and comfortable treatment chairs to gentle dentists and sedation options, we’ve got you. We make it our highest priority to make the procedure as pain-free as humanly possible and we employ the latest techniques in local anesthetics and topical anesthetics. We are patients too and know we would like the appointment as comfortable as possible.

Experience 5-Star Care

“Chris and Stephanie Padilla are great dentists. They have a top-of-the-line facility and great knowledgeable staff. They are not going to nickel and dime you. They’ll only recommend what’s necessary.”

“I saw Dr. Dunn. He was very professional, personable, and accommodating in doing a crown. Excellent experience! The crown fits perfectly, and I love the fact that the crown is created the same day as the appointment — no temporaries, no waiting for a second appointment. He was great, and I strongly recommend Padilla Dentistry & Orthodontics. A great group of people!!!”
