UNM Dental Services Camino de Salud Ambulatory Surgical Center

About

Staffed by an experienced team of dental and nursing professionals, the center can provide, in a one-appointment-procedure day, the healthy mouth that would usually take multiple dental appointments. Our state-of-the-art facility is equipped with advanced dental and medical equipment, including digital x-rays, intraoral cameras, electronic charting and full operation rooms. It is a state-licensed surgical center, not a traditional dental office. 

Our patients include anyone who will benefit from dental care under general anesthesia:

  • Pediatric patients, often difficult to treat in a traditional dental office, can be treated quickly and safely.
  • Patients who have extensive dental care needs that would require multiple trips to a traditional dental office can be treated in just one or two visits.
  • Patients who experience fear or anxiety when receiving dental care can sleep peacefully and safely for the duration of their treatment.
