These Albuquerque dentists provide top-notch care
Whether you live in Bear Canyon or Rio Rancho, you’re looking for great service, especially regarding your family’s dental care.
Here’s the latest Post of Happiness for great service from Albuquerque dentists as selected by the Angie’s List Newsroom staff.
A crowning achievement
Larry Battin had an easy dental experience, thanks to Dr. Billie Adams of Albuquerque. “Dr. Adams is a wonderful and gentle dentist,” he says. “I had a gold crown that another dentist put on several years ago came that off while I was having lunch. I called and got an appointment the next day for 10 a.m. At 10 a.m. I was in the chair, and Dr. Adams said after a thorough exam all she needed to do was rebond the crown. At 10:30 a.m., I was on my way. The entire staff and her amazing hygienist are very friendly and eager to make you feel comfortable.”
Help with the insurance
Dorothy King received the royal treatment from Dr. Ruben Martinez of Albuquerque and his staff. “The office staff was extremely helpful with insurance,” she says. "The insurance providers were not particularly helpful, but the staff kept at it and secured the needed information. The dental technician and Dr. Martinez were professional and thorough.
"I like that the doctor discussed the X-rays with me and that he gave me a hand mirror so that I could look into my mouth and see the items he pointed out," King says. "He was patient in explaining treatments to me and gave me credit for trying to take excellent care of my teeth for decades.”
A matter of trust
Dr. John Anton of Rio Rancho proved himself as a dentist Carol Homuth can trust. “I changed to Dr. Anton from another dentist and found him and his staff to be very professional and friendly,” she says. “He took time to explain the X-ray results and answer any other questions I had.
"I went for a six-month checkup and cleaning," she says. "I feel he is honest, and there will be no unnecessary work done. My dentist before him always said I needed to replace fillings and have root canals. In fact, he said I need another root canal when I changed to Dr. Anton. It turns out it wasn’t needed. Like many people, I don’t like going to the dentist; however, I feel very comfortable going to Dr. Anton’s office.”
Crowing about his crown
Roger Billau is all smiles, thanks to Dr. Zeena Al-Timimi of Albuquerque. “I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Zeena,” he says. “I was searching for quite a while for a dentist to replace my amalgam fillings. My regular dentist, who I was for the most part happy with, refused to replace them. Then I found Dr. Zeena. I went in for a free consultation, and the moment I met Dr. Zeena I knew I wanted her to do the job.
"I knew I was going to need a crown as part of this process," he says, " and I had a little anxiety after having a nightmare crown experience with another dentist about 10 years earlier. When I went in for my treatment, Dr. Zeena and her staff made me feel very comfortable. Everything went smooth with the amalgam removal and the treatment for the new crown.”
