Our new patient forms and insurance acceptance are easily accessed online if you’d like to speed up your check-in process.

During Your Appointment

For your first appointment, you will meet with one of our skilled denture specialists, Dr. Norby or Dr. Roukema. They will conduct a thorough evaluation of your mouth and take necessary x-rays to determine your specific tooth replacement needs. We utilize the state-of-the-art imaging technology to ensure we have the most accurate depiction of your dental needs.

Our office offers a full menu of top quality denture systems, including designs for partials, complete dentures and implant-retained dentures and overdentures. There are a variety of methods and ways to secure your dentures. Therefore, we will make sure you have a clear understanding of what options are available to you so that you can make the most informed decision about your future smile. We understand that replacing your teeth with dentures is an emotional transition for many. You can trust that our team is sensitive to this and we take every measure to make the process easy and reassuring.

During your first visit or any subsequent visit, please feel free to ask questions. We know that the denture process can be overwhelming and that you will have questions and concerns along the way. Our dentists are respectful when sharing their knowledge, and they want you to have a dignifying experience when getting dentures.

"These guys are excellent dentist. I was so happy with my new teeth that I took my wife to see them and she was treated with kid gloves. Now they might start seeing children as young as 10 years old. I'm going to tell all my friends and family members who have children over the age of 10 years old to go see these guys if they want a great dentist. I give them 100 out of a 100 for service and patient care. Keep up the great work"

"The sincere welcome I recieved upon arrival was just the beginning of a wonderful visit to the dentist. The office is very clean, and the equipment is state of the art. Dr. Roukema had me in and out very efficiently, and even took the time to explain my X-rays. I would highly recommend this office to anyone in the Albuquerque area!"
