I was a new patient and my first impression as I entered the building was how modern and upscale it felt. Waiting room was as if I was sitting in my living room. It was very inviting and comfortable. I was greeted with a friendly smile and in a courteous manner. Waiting time was short. When I was called I went back to an impressive state of the art facility. Dr. Bae and Randy, the hygienist, were very nice and easy going, professional, very knowledgeable and they walked me through a reasonable treatment plan for the health of my gums and teeth . Overall, I had a positive experience and I will continue to see them for all my dental needs.read more
I have been coming here for years. I love my dental hygienist Jeanette! She is always gentle and thorough, and she always puts me at ease with comfortable conversation.
They have started doing something new where an Assistant sees you first if you come in for a cleaning and they do the polishing and flossing first. Then the hygienist comes to in to clean your teeth which seems backwards and makes no sense to me. I
would prefer that all of my cleaning be done by my hygienist whom I know and trust. It's very anxiety inducing to allow a new person to work on my teeth. I will be asking before my next appointment if all of my care can be done by my hygienist.read more
I've had Dr Bae as my dentist on 3 separate visits and his bedside manners are excellent. His care and concern for my dental care has left me to his total control...this is a good thing.
His assistant, Gertrude, has left no room for error. She has handled my dental care in an exemplary manner. Kudos for Gertrude.read more

I don't usually like the dentist, but Dr. Tim changed my opinion. He was professional, understanding and almost painless with the procedure he did on me. I have a couple more visits to complete the procedure, but am looking forward to the end results.
My husband also is going to see Dr. Tim and he is very pleased with the procedure that he did for him, too....We highly recommend Dr. Tim for any dental procedures that you may have! Even though we live in Albuquerque, and he is in Los Lunas, it is well worth the drive to his office with the professional, courteous staff at his office and his will to make sure that you are satisfied with the work he does for you......

We saw Dr Mason for a check up and cleaning. As a long time patient of Dr Mason, there were no surprises. He’s fantastic.
The office waiting room is bright and comfortable. The reception we received was friendly and helpful.
Exam area was clean and modern.
Hygienist, a young man who’s name I didn’t get, was gentle but thorough.

I had my first appointment with Valencia Family Dentistry this week and all I can say is I wish I had made an appointment sooner because this practice is amazing! The atmosphere is calming, the staff are very friendly, and Dr Loumeau was kind, explained things wonderfully, and is going to try to help me fix an issue that I thought I had no hope of fixing. I had a tooth pulled and two fillings done and honestly felt none of it which was great!
My whole family will be going to Valencia Dental from now on and I would highly recommend them to anyone.read more
I had been a patient of Dr. Jaramillo, since back in the early 1990’s.
Fast forward to 2017, and I find the same amazing care and service.

I asked a million questions and they took their time with me, answering every one. i will never forget their kindness.
Treated me like family.read more
I have high anxiety with dentists due to a bad experience in my past. I put off getting work done due to this, and waited to the point where I was in extreme pain.
I called Valencia Family Dentistry on Tuesday, and was surprised when they told me I could come right in. I was called to the back about 5 minutes after I completed the paperwork.
The dental assistant, Genea, and she was incredible! She made me feel as comfortable as I could be in this circumstance. She spoke with me before she did anything. I was able to speak about my anxiety without her judging, or making me feel like an idiot. She went out of her way to make me comfortable getting X-rays. I have a horrible gag reflex, and she went as fast as she could to get it over with.
I ended up seeing Dr. Loumeau, and he was excellent. I was still anxious, but it didn’t get worse. He seemed to understand my fears, and didn’t do anything to make me feel uncomfortable. He told me about different treatment options, and left it up to me to decide. We spoke about sedation, and I decided I needed that for my extraction.
I left the office feeling confident that they will take care of me, and make me as comfortable as possible during my procedure.
If you have dental anxiety I highly recommend this office.read more

This is the best dentist office I have ever been to. Josette does a wonderful job keeping my teeth clean.

I have been a patient of Valencia Family Dental since before Dr. Smith was providing dental services. When Dr. Smith took over the business I was slightly apprehensive of the change. Thankfully my experience with Dr. Smith and his staff has been wonderful. I like how welcoming he and his staff are and how responsive they have been to all my questions. I appreciate the personal attention they provide to make me feel comfortable. Two days before my appointment I receive calls to remind me of my appointment. They even remember to remind me to bring my night guard, which I am thankful for. More importantly, I feel that I am receiving high quality dental care.read more
