I’ve been visiting Desert Ridge Dental for more than five years now. I’m continually impressed with the care they show for their patients. I’ve seen numerous staff as I successfully finished Six Month Braces I’d wanted for years, an implant I’d needed for years, and many dental cleanings. Everyone I’ve encountered at DRD is great! I’ve personally seen dental hygienists Julie and Jolene — they are wonderful! And my husband highly recommends Jordan. If you’re nervous about dental procedures, they will put you at ease. I highly recommend Desert Ridge Dental!

I have had awful experiences with dentist in the past and this dentist completely changed my mindset. Everyone made you feel so comfortable, I’m talking from the receptionist, to the dentist, to the hygienist. Christina went into depth when explaining treatment and went as far as finding videos to explain everything. I could tell that every single person in that office genuinely cares about you as a person and I loved that feeling. Thank you Desert Ridge Dental for making this a great experience!

Had a 7am appointment, there was no wait, the staff, hygienist and dentist was ready for me on arrival. This was my second visit and I was not disappointed either time. The offices were clean, organized and the equipment was well maintained. Both visits were quick and painless, the hygienist who cleaned my teeth both times was awesome at her job and professional in every manner. I highly recommend this office, and plan to continue to make it my go to dental office for any dental issue.

These guys are doing an excellent job keeping their patients safe during the pandemic. This practice is also very good for people with dental anxiety. My wife had a traumatic experience at a dentist as a child and this is the first place she’s felt comfortable getting regular cleanings at in many years. They seem to have a good understanding of these sorts of things and don’t treat you as irresponsible for having anxiety about the dentist. Instead they help you through it and offer a number of options to mitigate issues. Very professional and I highly recommend them.

Love Desert Ridge Dental, Dr. Rogers and all the staff I’ve encountered. I feel very safe entering their offices. They’re taking great care to keep everyone healthy. And I feel very good that they are taking the best care of my teeth! They are always very thorough with their care, cleaning and all dental procedures. I highly recommend them!

I went in for a cleaning with the amazing, Julie! I have found my hygienist! She was caring, informative and walked me through every step of the process, not to mention my mouth and teeth felt clean and smooth. Dr. Rogers took the time to explain the process that will be in my future and made me feel at ease with the decisions I will have to make in the future. Hands down!, the most pleasant and knowledgeable staff I have met.

Desert Ridge Dental is a great place! It is the most comfortable Dentist office I have every visited and I have visited quite a few in my life time 🙂 The Team are amazing, Beverly is awesome and Julie who just cleaned my teeth was a true professional, kind and caring!! If you are looking for great Dentist, a kind and caring team that make you feel valued and comfortable, Desert Ridge Dental is where you need to come!!

This dental office is by far the best dental office I’ve ever been to. I always feel so comfortable and well taken care of. The staff is all very friendly and nice. I am greeted with smiles as I arrive or depart the office. Dr. Rogers and Dr. Mink have been very informative of what is happening with dental health. Also, they are both very detailed with the procedures they perform. I feel very comfortable in their hands. It is hard to find a good dentist that you feel safe with and I glad I have found one with Dr. Rogers and Dr. Mink!

Rhiannon G. from Vista Vieja, Albuquerque, United States (Source: Yelp)


Wonderful! I haven’t been to the dentist in 8 years and was pretty anxious. This place was great! I called to make an appointment and they got me in the next day. They did a lot of X-rays and checked everything. The staff was awesome and so friendly. The Dentist I saw was fantastic and explained everything. He asked what my wants and concerns were and took time to speak with me. Before I left they gave me a full breakdown of the financial quote and scheduled me an appointment for four days later! Very pleased with them and not as anxious! Will definitely be sticking with this office.

Donna B. from Albuquerque, United States (Source: Yelp)


Dr Rogers is my dentist, so I can only write about my experience with him. He is a wonderful, caring dentist, who I’m extremely happy with. Julie keeps my teeth and gums nice and healthy, with her own caring, sweet personality. I love the fact the office schedules in a timely fashion where I have never had to wait long at all. Front staff are always upbeat, friendly and helpful. I’ve felt over the years I’ve been at this office that they are honest, which is very important to me.

Briana Garcia (Source: Google)


I was a new patient today. The staff was very professional and friendly. Jolene did my cleaning and she was very informative and gave clear recommendations for some issues I was having. She was confident and kind She and Dr.Rogers did a very thorough examination. They took X-rays as well as digital pictures. This was first practice that checked for any suspicious lumps or bumps round my neck and chin. Dr.Rogers also did an evaluation on my jaw as it opened and closed. I felt that they took time to establish a good rapport with me. The facility is conveniently located near my home. Overall, I was very happy with my visit both staff in the facility were great. I will be returning for future follow-up visits. Keep in mind the new patient appt are about and 1 1/2. Well worth it.

Sharon M. from Rio Rancho, United States (Source: Yelp)


This office is amazing! The absolute best experience starting from the friendliness and professionalism of the front office team! I felt so comfortable from the very beginning!, and then I met my hygienist and she was so thorough and extremely knowledgeable! She took her time and explained everything to me. Next, I met the doctors and had the best dental exam ever! I would highly recommend this office! They even have chocolate chip cookies for the patients which is a bonus for me! I will definitely tell all my my friends and family about Desert Ridge Dental in Ventana Ranch!

I have become a person who loves going to the dentist. Only because I come to Desert Ridge! Dr Rogers is a great dentist, who always takes his time and I feel truly cares about my teeth. Julie keeps them nice and clean, and she’s the best hygienist I’ve ever been to. My husband and I can’t imagine going anywhere else.

After years of avoiding the dentist for various reasons, I finally no longer dread dental appointments. Desert Ridge Dental on Paradise makes the whole process so comfortable. From the friendly staff at the front desk and the beautiful, spacious waiting room, to the tremendous work of the doctors, hygeinists, and assistants themselves, this office has been great. During my first visit, I was so surprised that they give patients the option to watch Netflix or listen to Pandora with headphones throughout any procedure. It makes the experience much less stressful and awkward. My hygeinist is Jordan, and everytime I have a visit with her at the office her charm, kindness, and ability not only makes my teeth happy, but makes my whole day that much better. Five stars to a Godsend dentists office in Desert Ridge Dental, especially coming from somebody like me who has hated going to the dentist for years.

We are new to NM and my daughter and I both had excellent experiences with everyone at Desert Ridge. From the front office to the dentist, they are very knowledgeable, thorough, and will make you feel welcome and comfortable. I would highly recommend their office!

This is the best dental place ever! The staff is beyond professional, kind and they really listen to you. The dentist answered all my questions. The cleaning was great! The X-ray tech was the sweetest. I really loved my visit and I’m not going to be nervous the next time I’m back because these folks do care and will deliver excellent service!

My husband and I are very lucky to have found Dr. Rogers. He is very knowledgeable, professional, and yet down to earth and always taking his time to answer any questions you have for him. The staff is very friendly, courteous, and treats you like family. The establishment is clean and modern. Dr Rogers is an exceptional dentist .

I met Dr. Rogers and Julie a year ago after moving here from another state. Dr. Rogers has always been helpful, knowledgeable, patient, and down to earth. Julie is one of the best hygienists I have seen. She is very skilled in what she does. She has excellent communication skills. She always makes sure I am comfortable and aware of what she is doing. I saw Dr. Mink once; he seemed impatient and rude when he explained things. He doesn’t seem to have a very good bedside manner overall. But other than that, Dr. Rogers and the staffs are always friendly and amazing!

Belinda B. from Santa Rosa, United States (Source: Yelp)


Professional and friendly staff very conscious of coronavirus protocol. Prompt & efficient reception, upbeat hygienists, focused dentists. This is a patient-oriented practice ready to answer all questions & work with any constraints or concerns. I put off my cleaning for 3 months into the future because COVID-19 is really surging at the moment & I’m over 70. Dentist & hygienist took a good 20 minute look at my status & were amenable to my request for postponement. I’ve already made my future appointment & all of us are good to go.

Like most people, I HATE going to the dentist. It has always been a horrific experience for me. That was until my friend referred me to Desert Ridge Dental. I was going to my prior dentist for so long I didnt even realize how horrible they had gotten. Desert Ridge really shows they care. They take time with you and fully explain everything. The atmosphere is so comfortable, clean and inviting. The dentists are top notch. I have recommended them to many friends and family and will continue to do so

Alex Stump (Source: Facebook)


Everyone I spoke to and interacted with was so incredibly kind. I haven’t been to the dentist in a long time and know I have a lot of work to do and I didn’t feel judged or shamed a single time which is a huge deal to me. They also wanted to know me as a person rather than just a patient which I really appreciated too. I look forward to working with them in the future!

I was very happy with my visit as a first time client. The entire staff was very nice and sweet and always made sure that I was comfortable. The doctor/assistant/receptionist all explained everything very well and answered any questions I had. They went over the options that I had, given my teeth situation, and were honest about the process and what it entailed (procedure, time, scheduling, estimates and payment options). Not only that, they are doing amazing with having protocols set during Covid 19. From checking in, during the exam and checking out. They are truely a good recommendation and a place to be seen. I already scheduled my treatment with the doctor.

The last thing I wanted during the COVID-19 pandemic was to visit the dentist, but when I had a wisdom tooth emergency crop up, I knew I would have to go. I have some lingering anxiety about going to the dentist in general, but Dr. Rogers and everyone on the team that I interacted with were extremely kind, and made sure that I could get through my procedure as calmly and comfortably as possible. I was also comforted by seeing that this office is paying a lot of attention to patient and staff safety during these strange times. I have since healed and recovered from my procedure, and I’m feeling great! I’m ready to face future dental visits with lower levels of anxiety.

Deanna R. from Corpus Christi, United States (Source: Yelp)


I have NEVER liked the dentist but I knew I needed to go in and make it a regular thing again for me and my family. I was referred to Desert Ridge by a good friend who found me the perfect dental office. They eased my anxiety by making me feel right at home and explaining everything and checking on my throughout the entire process. They also were able to take care of a cavity for our daughter without drilling or putting her under, I could not be a happier mommy! Thank you Dr Rodgers and staff for helping our family have a positive experience and to be looking forward to our next cleaning appointments.

Let me start by saying that Julie is an amazing dental hygienist and person. She takes extra time and care to make sure that you’re comfortable. I’ve had bad experiences with other dentist’s offices in the past that had me neglecting my dental care but since I found Desert Ridge, and Julie, I’m back on track and no longer fear the dentist. 5 stars for care and quality of service.

Will Oliver (Source: Google)


I previously voiced concerns via this review. My concerns were met with swift changes. The providers at this clinic are very in tune with quality assurance. I appreciate that very much. I am amending from 3 stars to 5. I highly recommend the practice. With that being said, the extra hours after 5 PM and before 9 AM are extremely convenient. They have scheduled me for visits in a timely manner, and are always friendly on the phone. They are very concerned about my comfort when performing any procedure.

Mark R. from Albuquerque, United States (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Desert Ridge Dental for several years now. I started by having my teeth cleaned by wonderful Julie. I did the 6 month braces, a molar implant and a tooth extraction. They seem to do everything at this office with new state of the art equipment. Doctor Rogers is young but very knowledgeable and competent. I like the way they explain my options and give me recommendations after an exam. He is a very kind and caring Doctor and this seems to be characteristic of all his staff members. I like the welcome greeting I receive from the front desk staff and I never have to wait long to see the Doctor. Thank you Desert Ridge Dental!

I’m lucky to have had such great service in my dental care. Nadine you’re the best thank you for making me feel comfortable safe and relaxed and that’s saying a lot for a person that gets extremely anxious just even thinking about going to the dentist much less being there. You are truly truly knowledgeable in your trade you know what you’re doing! And thank you to my wonderful doctor you’re the best dentist ever!

Irene Gonzales (Source: Google)


I am so impressed with the professionalism at this practice. Everyone was so nice and friendly. The staff at the front desk are also extremely invested in the practice and know their stuff. I dealt with Jessica and felt so comfortable with her knowledge and caring for my needs and situation. Danara and Dr. Rogers were awesome. I can’t express enough how competent they were and concerned for my well being. Dr. Rogers is so easy to talk to and extremely knowledgeable. So so glad I found them!! Highly recommended!!!!!

Ana P. from Albuquerque, United States (Source: Yelp)


Everyone at Desert Ridge Dental is incredible! The office is welcoming, the exam rooms comfortable, and the care is exceptional. I went in for braces and dental implants 9 months before getting married. Dr. Rogers and Monica were so efficient, kind and profesisonal, thanks to them I was able to have a beautiful smile for my wedding day! Will definitely reccomend and keep getting dental services through them!

Being someone who does not like going to the dentist I was encouraged by a good friend of mine to try Desert Ridge Dental. Instantly when walking in I was greeted by friendly staff and had an amazing experience and was made to feel important and they took their time with me to ensure that I was comfortable with everything. I have since brought my daughter in for a second opinion and she is loving going to the dentist now and they were able to treat her cavity using a technique that did not involve putting her under and drilling her tooth. Thank you Dr. Rodgers and the rest of the staff! We will be making our six month visits regularly!

Everyone is so welcoming. From the friendly smiles that greet me when I arrive to the attention and care I receive from my dental hygienist, Julie and Dr. Rogers. The atmosphere is most welcoming and the office is very clean. I have always been very happy and pleased with the oral work I have received. Never have I felt the time spent with me was rushed. The dental team takes their time to make sure that the work performed is done correctly and everyone is very professional, which I like. In the past, I have experienced a great deal of anxiety when it was time to go to the dentist’s office. However, since I began to go to Desert Ridge Dental, my anxiety has greatly decreased. My dental hygienist, Julie, takes the time to get to know me and this helps to ease my anxiety. I highly recommend Desert Ridge Dental!!! Mrs. Alicia Vasquez

Jolene is/has always been a great hygienist,kind soul ,professional,and easy to talk to dental issues or life in general. Beverly is especially funny and kind and staff in general are helpful and easy to talk to. They are awesome people,not just a dental office…

Dave D. from Albuquerque, NM (Source: Yelp)


First time here, so I ended up doing my initial x-rays and exam plus a cleaning. My appointment started right on time when I was called into the waiting room from the parking lot where I was waiting due to COVID. Everything went smoothly and quickly with no problems. The staff and Dr. Rogers were friendly and professional, the office was clean and tidy and all the equipment looked to be in good shape. First visit was pretty good, so while I can’t say I’m looking forward to a dental visit, I can say I’m not dreading the next one!
