Dr. Shepherd on why you should choose Uptown Dental Read Transcript
There are a lot of great dental offices in Albuquerque, honestly. I am very good friends with a lot of the dentists here in town and many of them will provide you with fantastic dental work. But not everywhere that you go in town will give you the same love and attention that you get in our office. I could tell you that you need to come here because we have the most gorgeous dental office in town. That you can be in this beautiful facility and you can enjoy the beautiful soothing courtyard while you have your dentistry done. I could tell you that you need to come here because we keep our prices low. That for what you're getting here, you're underpaying. I could tell you that we accept insurances and I could tell you a lot of reasons why you should come here.
But I think the main reason that a patient should choose our office is that we genuinely care about you as a person. We are as concerned about what is right for you as we are about what is right for us. And we genuinely believe that this has to be a win-win and that we're in the business of taking care of your mouth together.

Most rewarding part of dentistry Read Transcript
There are two parts that are most rewarding for me in my work. One is when I get to take a patient from feeling incredibly embarrassed about their smile. Feeling very self-conscious and apologizing to me, as they're coming to me for the state of their mouth, and taking them from that place to feeling confident and please with their smile and how they feel about it. That is incredibly rewarding. It's the kind of stuff that I go home and tell my wife about at the end of the day.The second thing is very small and it's just the daily interactions that I have with my patients. Whether I get to do anything with them or not, if they're in to see the hygienist and I'm just stopping in to say hello, I love that. Getting to know them and their personal lives. Them getting to know me and building that relationship with them. I generally love my patients.
When you arrive at our beautiful office, our compassionate team will do everything we can to put you at ease. We even have warm blankets, fresh-baked cookies, and can help relieve your dental anxiety!
