Welcome to A to Z Children’s Dentistry, here’s our Mission:
A to Z Children’s Dentistry strives to provide an ideal dental home for the children of Grants, NM and surrounding communities. Our primary goal is to make quality, affordable pediatric dentistry specialty care available to the racially, culturally and economically diverse population. Serving infants, children, teens, and special needs children.
We strive to educate parents and children on how to assure an effective dental disease prevention program that extends to the child’s home. Accomplishing our prevention goals is our promise to add new dental disease prevention medications and procedures as soon as they become available for professional use.

We are dedicated to treating all children compassionately, yet in a reasonably expeditious way depending on the child’s condition and the parent’s individual behavioral considerations. We focus on the safety and effectiveness of each treatment option we offer, therefore the parents of uncooperative children are given with choices that include, avoiding the overuse of potentially dangerous deep sedation and general anesthesia outside of a hospital setting.
Here, at the clinic of A to Z our dentists always prioritize care based on the child’s clinical needs. We do not discriminate against patients because of their economic status or third party coverage (insurance/Medicaid). Come join us today!
