Tooth crowding and narrowness of the upper jaw is among the most common types of malocclusion and results in a misalignment of the upper and lower teeth. This leads to the lower jaw being trapped back and not allowing it to grow to its full and proper position, that...
Orthopedic expansion or the use of a palatal expander can help widen the jaw allowing more space for the permanent teeth to come into the best position. I see this as early orthopedics more than orthodontics because we are helping to develop the jaw bone, not the...
Orthodontics has been around for a very long time. The practice of straightening teeth has evolved in tandem with general dentistry over the years. Malocclusion is not a disease, it's simply a poor alignment of teeth and the way they fit together. And nearly 30% of...

First impressions will make you or break you. I am thoroughly satisfied with Valencia Family. Dentistry and Orthodontics. The hygienist (CeeCee) was gentle and efficient while cleaning my teeth. Lois the Office Manager was warm and friendly, and made me feel as I were a long time patient; even though it was my first visit. The facility itself was modern, clean, and spacious.
If you are searching for a dental office that makes you feel overly welcome, Valencia Family Dentistry and Orthodontics is located at 3472 Main St. NE, Los Luna's, NMread more
This is by FAR the best dental office my partner and I have ever visited. I would give 6 stars, if I could. Every person we've spoken to in this office has been so kind and patient. When my insurance wouldn't cover my preventative care, they worked with me to develop an affordable care plan I felt comfortable going forward with.
I had a visit scheduled for three fillings and Dr. Kim went so quickly, she was able to complete my other needed fillings rather than having me come in for another appointment. She regularly asked how I was doing and offered breaks which I thought was very considerate and stood out from my previous experiences.
I also have chronic anxiety which causes me to be a little shaky in various settings- when I apologized for this she responded not to apologize and that she completely understood. That empathy was greatly appreciated and put my mind at ease.
Overall, I highly recommend this dental office and believe you will be very well taken care of there. Thank you, Valencia Family Dental. 🙂read more

I have looked for a good Dentist in Los Lunas for 5 years or longer!!! I finally found one at Valenica Dental. The Dentist is awesome and takes his time giving you shots. I didn't even feel the shot that's how good he was. He also took time to make me a temporary tooth until mine came back from the lab.
He didn't have to do that but he knew I didn't like having a missing tooth on top!!!
Everyone at this office is professional and kind!!
I would recommend Valencia Dental to everyone!!read more

It had been about 5 years since I'd been to the Dentist due to taking care of elderly parents and time just got away from me. After moving to Peralta, Valencia Family Dentistry was recommended to me through a friend. I can't tell you how pleased I am! The facility is clean and beautiful. Everyone is very friendly. Randy took his time taking x-rays, cleaning and polishing my teeth. He was professional, gentle, very thorough and informative.

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 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 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

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
