Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Cheri Q. from Albuquerque, NM (Source: Yelp)


Never a wait…in fact, I’ve only sat in the waiting room once for less than 5 minutes in the two years I’ve been a patient. The staff are always friendly, professional, and very competent. Dr. Tran always gives options for treatment plans and never pushes for procedures. My appointment, including x-rays when needed, cleaning, and exam is almost always completed within 30 minutes but I never feel rushed if I have questions or concerns. Very convenient with offices on both sides of the river. Definitely recommend to all my friends!

Look no further for a great dentist! Excellent dental work and cleaning by Dr Tran. He doesn’t skimp on the cleaning nor does he recommend unnecessary work. Staff is also very friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend if you’re looking for a dentist who does great work and is up to date with technology and knowledge.

Quality dentist, very caring person. The team of help is all smiles and really made my trip a pleasure. His systems allow you to understand the process very easily. It was like 3D mapping for teeth. My brother has braces here that is what made me see Dr tran. My brothers teeth have improved a lot since braces. I will update in the future how my cleaning goes. If your reading this and waiting to get your teeth cleaned. Stop what your doing and make a apportionment your teeth matter.

Desert Oasis Dental is AWESOME! Dr. Tran and his staff are outstanding. They are always friendly and make you feel at ease. I was the only one going there, and now my husband and son are patients too! If you are thinking of making an appointment, make one. You will not be disappointed and will wonder why you didn’t make an appointment sooner!

Dr. Tran was one of the best Dentist I use and still using, he was very thorough and pleasant to work with. My wife and I both use Dr. Tran as our goto Dentist. We’ve had others in the passed and they are not so good in ABQ, but Dr. Tran cares and he will only recommend procedures when you really need it and will not ask you to do more than you need. Thank you for your honesty and good work!

I have been going to Dr. Tran for approximately over ten years now and when he moved out of Rio Rancho I refused to get a new dentist and continue to go to his office in Albuquerque. He and his staff are always very professional. If he were to ever leave NM or close his office it would be hard for me to find another dentist the would compare to Dr. Tran and his staff. Thanks for your amazing care and service,

Dr.Tran was on time with my appointment. I did not wait long in the office. Dr. Tran is always caring about my level of comfort. I would recommend him to friends and family. I live in Deming NM and Dr. Tran is worth the drive to have my dental work done. Very Good dentist.

Dr. Tran and his office staff are very professional and prompt. I have been to a lot of very good dentist in my life and I would consider Dr. Tran to be the best of any of them. He is very careful and does an amazing job. He has great chair side manors and communicates great with the patient. He takes all steps necessary to make sure the patient is comfortable and isn’t experiencing pain. His finished product looks really good and last a long time. His assistant is very capable and the front desk is always willing to work with you. I would recommend Dr. Tran to anyone that wants the best cleaning and dental work.

The office staff was extremely welcoming, very nice and professional. I am extremely catious about my teeth and who I see. Dr. Tran looked over my teeth throughly. He took the time to answer my questions and concerns. He explained things very well to me. I definitely trust him. In comparison to my previous dentists, Dr. Tran is by far my favorite.

Dr. Tran and his staff are fantastic! The environment is friendly and they treat you like family. They build a relationship with patients and remember your dental history, likes and dislikes, and your personal story. Both Dr. Tran and Alex are gentle during cleanings and procedures. For those of you who have had “rough” experiences, this is the place put you at ease.

Excellence is not just a word; it has to do with trust, fairness, and superior ability. When you walk into the office, you are immediately greeted by Alex (brother of Dr. Tran) who is very knowledgeable regarding all facets of dentistry as well as financial solutions for care. Alex is a huge asset to the whole operation and continually provides valuable assistance. Dr. Tran is a fantastic dentist: trustworthy, knowledgeable, and very multi-faceted. In short, he is so talented that any problem can be assessed with multiple solutions and alternatives. If you like excellence, this is the place to be.

Dr. Tran and his team at Desert Oasis Dental are the BEST! Our family is always impressed with the time, care, cleanliness, and professionalism of Desert Oasis. We have had cavities, cracked fillings, and cleanings (oh my!) – and every single time, Dr. Tran and team present us with options that work for our family, and advice that improves our long-term oral health. FIVE STARS!! They are the best, you won’t be disappointed!

M. G. from Rio Rancho, NM (Source: Yelp)


My neighbor recommended this dentist. I went recently and had a good experience. I think he is honest. That is what I needed, just an honest dentist that cares and tries to save me money while saving my teeth and my related health. By the way, I have been to many, many dentists only once because they were not honest, each gave costly wildly different costly intervention plans and would have destroyed my teeth just to line their pockets. It is such a huge relief to find a real healthcare professional that I think I can trust to care for my mouth. Thanks.

I am very impressed with Dr. Tran at Desert Oasis Dental in Albuauerque. When your dentist CLEANS your teeth, that indicates, to me, that he is truly invested in you and your dental care. This situation is unique and truly exemplary. My impression is that he is very fair, very caring, very honest, and very competent–what else could a patient ask for? This is an extremely unusual set of circumstances, and I am the fortunate patient! Thank you, Dr. Tran! Alex is a great asset to your team! Sharon Jones

Dr. Tran takes care of me , my three kids ages 7-15, and my friend. He has performed various procedures on all of us from cleanings to root canals. Never once have I had issues or complaints of pain. He is extremely quick, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to go to. His work is impressive.

My two visits have been AWESOME! Dr. Tran, Alex and Lee are so friendly and professional. Their office is cozy and there was no wait time. I explained what pain I was in and they listened and didn’t rush me at all. Dr. Tran came up with a plan and after a year of pain, I am now pain free! I am so very happy my friend Anne recommended this office. I had an insurance issue and Alex was on top of it before I even asked. All I can say is their customer service is OUTSTANDING! I hope to be a patient for life. Thank you all very much!

A twenty-year old onlay loosened and came off a molar while I was chewing. I took the onlay to Dr. Tran, who discovered a cavity which had developed under it. He handed me a small magnifying mirror so I could watch as he pressed a thin dental probe onto hard enamel of a healthy molar compared to how deeply the dental probe went down into the much softer enamel of the molar where it had decayed. He put on the old onlay temporarily then his dental tech Lee made an impression of my molar. Next, Leeused some high-tech equipment and a computer application to create a 3-D computer model of my molar with its old onlay. Dr. Tran waited as the anesthetic numbed the tooth then asked if I was comfortable. Next, he filled the cavity then prepared the tooth for a color-matched crown shaped like my old tooth with its onlay. At each stage of the process, Dr.Tran explained what was happening and why. During the follow-up visit, Dr. Tran and Alex carefully used some dental equipment to fine-tune the new crown, producing a fit and a bite that matches my original tooth. When I’m chewing, my tooth feels fine — the same as it has for the last twenty years.

Dr. Tran is undoubtedly the best dentist my family and I have ever been to. He and his staff are very professional and do their job well, while they each maintain a very personable and welcoming demeanor. Dr. Tran genuinely cares about his patients, and it is evident that he strives to provide first-class, unparalleled care and service to each and every patient who walks through his doors. I highly recommend his practice to all!!!!

Respect. Dr. Tran listens to you and his support staff is equally engaging and professional. Dr. Tran is an outstanding dentist who is familiar with all the latest technology. Everything speaks to quality in the entire operation. Dr. Tran is probably the best dentist my husband and I have ever had…and, we have had plenty of dental work over the years! Do not hesitate to include him as your dentist if you are looking for someone good. He is worth it!:

I am very impressed with Dr. Tran, and would recommend him without hesitation. During my two appointments at his office, Dr. Tran took the time to explain processes and procedures to me, along with fully answering any questions that I had. It is obvious that he wants to set his patients at ease and provide them with quality care. My experience confirms that he successfully achieves these goals. Dr. Tran’s staff members play a critically important role, too, in ensuring that the office runs efficiently and smoothly. Their friendliness, professionalism, and knowledge make them an absolute pleasure to deal with. A great all-around dental experience!!

Dr. Tran is very careful, very well trained, very easy to talk to. I have been his patient for 2 years and am extremely pleased with the care I have gotten. Lee and Alex in his office are equally professional and efficient. They are carefully following the recommendations for reducing coronavirus transmission. I highly recommend his practice. I highly recommend him.
