Welcoming New Patients

Dr. Kassam is happy to see both new and returning patients at Sandia Dental Care. Those who are visiting our practice for the first time are first taken to see our hygiene department for a comprehensive teeth cleaning, full set of X-rays if needed, and a complete dental exam to check on the stability of existing restorations and soft tissue health. Patients also get the chance to meet and speak with Dr. Kassam about any concerns, their previous dental experiences, and how we plan to care for your smile at future appointments. If the reason for your first visit is problem-focused, i.e. you’re seeing our dentist for a painful or damaged tooth, we address these issues first. Dr. Kassam evaluates problem spots on your smile to determine the most efficient procedures for your needs and how to re-establish dental health.

Delivering Expected Results

We make it our goal to customize your treatment plan to meet the results you’re looking for. Dr. Kassam begins the treatment process by taking panorex X-rays and other digital images of teeth to locate specific areas of your smile that need attention. When creating prosthetics, like crowns, bridges, dentures, and veneers, we work with with a local lab and can even bring a lab technician into your appointment to create a custom shade that is a seamless match to the rest of your smile. Learn more about our Albuquerque dentist and our office by browsing our website or calling us today to schedule your next dental visit. We look forward to meeting you!
