UNM Dental Services Camino de Salud Residency Clinic and Faculty Practice


UNM Dental Services offers the highest level of care and advanced dental techniques in the greater Albuquerque area. At New Mexico’s only dental residency program, our staff provide excellent dental care in a state-of-the art facility.

The Faculty Practice and Residency Clinic dentists practice side-by-side with senior faculty, for a total of 17 practitioners. The clinic is staffed by recent Dental School graduates who are pursuing advanced 

training, rather than immediately entering private practice. Our residents are typically graduates of the top half of their dental school class. Their treatment of patients is overseen and mentored by Dental Services faculty. A new group of residents is introduced each year for the 12-month program. The faculty practice is staffed by full-time Dental Services faculty with many years of experience. The faculty practice allows patients of the Camino De Salud clinic to continue their dental care with the familiarity of a traditional private practice.  

Dental Faculty, Residents and Hygienists provide dental services in the Camino De Salud Clinic. Preventive, reconstructive, restorative and emergency dental care are available.

The University of New Mexico is a member of the National Health Service Corps. If you need financial assistance with your patient care, information is available at the front desks of the dental clinics.
