To Our Most Valued Patients:

We will be closed and available for emergency only care until further notice. We must implement new restrictions on patient care. This is based on the latest advice we have received from the Centers for Disease Control, the NM Dental Board and the American Dental Association.

If you have an appointment for non-emergency dental treatment (such as a checkup or cleaning or fillings), the appointment has been canceled, and we will work with you to reschedule. We are now restricting treatment to urgent or emergency care only. If you are having a true dental emergency call us at 575-523-8663 or 575-520-5036

This decision was not easy, but necessary. The health and well-being of our patients and team members are our primary focus.

We regret that we must restrict our patient care this way. We are serving our patients in the safest manner possible by following the advice of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention under these difficult circumstances. In doing this, we will safeguard the health and safety of our patients, our team members, and the entire community. Thank you all for your cooperation and understanding during these trying times and we wish you all the best of health.

In Good Health,
Dr. Robert Mabry and Team
