I can’t imagine having a better Dentist home that at the NM Smile Center. I even tried the children-focused (as advertised) dentists thinking they would offer better kid service for my children. However; we discovered Dr. Ollason and staff fostered a much better experience for them so our whole family has been enjoying their services for quite a while. I appreciate how the team is personal, yet professional and efficient. I rather look forward to my visits as they are oddly relaxing.

Dr. Steve Olason has been my dentist well over 5 years .He has treated me very well never had any problem getting ahold of him when I had issues over the weekend or after hours and has not only been professional but treated me like. I was his son because I can be a big baby when it comes to removing a tooth and he didn’t laugh at me or anything. He understood my fears a perty much put me at ease and was right every time didn’t feel a thing. So I am very happy being under his care and careing means a lot to me when it comes to my teeth thank you Doc. Vince Herrera

Our very first dental visit and New Mexico Smile Center was amazing. The whole office went out of their way to make sure the kids weren’t scared. Dr. Ollason was beyond great with the kids. We left with the kids saying “I love the dentist” so to say it was a perfect first visit is an understatement.

The many years I have walked in the door at New Mexico Smile Center I’ve been essential! The team and Dr. Ollason always work on prevention and allowing me the opportunity to make the right decisions on my dental health and outcome. I will not go anywhere else as relationships and dental health go hand-in-hand. They are professional, fun, brilliant and supportive team! I always leave with a New Mexico SMILE!

We all know how impossible it is to find a dentist open on the weekend! Dr Ollason saw me on a Saturday, first thing in the morning. He was extremely friendly, and genuinely concerned about my tooth pain. Dr Ollason took care of my tooth in just a few minutes and I was out of pain! He texted me to follow up with me on how I was feeling the following day (right!? What dentist actually does that!?). His staff followed up with me in a timely and professional manner as well. I have been in Albuquerque a little over two years and have visited a couple of dentist. Hands down Dr Ollason is the only dentist I will see now.

It’s the best dentist office I have been to, I started going originally because my hygenist, Jan, who I love, switched to that office, then I met Dr. Steve and his staff and I was sold, everyone is so nice, helpful, professional, convinced my Daddio to start going and now my brother will be getting a cleaning in August, love New Mexico Smiles!!!

Mari C. from Pebble Brook, El Paso, TX (Source: Yelp)


For several years I’ve gone through several dentist. I’ve never had such great service as I’ve had here. Ever since my first visit at NM Smile Center, I’ve been impressed. Since then, me and my family have been coming here for several years and I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else. The staff is really friendly and treat you like family and close friends. The hygienist are amazing and are gentle at cleaning teeth. They listened to my concerns about my jaw and referred me to an equally amazing craniofacial doctor. I brought this up to a dentist I had before and his response was “you have to talk to your primary doctor for that.” My jaw feels so much better and it’s all because the dentist and his staff listen and genuinely care.

Dr. Steve Ollason & his team of professionals at NM Smile Center are the BEST in providing full circle dental care. They actually make it a point to know their patients – they care and are efficient – and it shows at all check points – from saying hello when you walk in the door, to scheduling, the insurance & payment process, providing the best in preventative care, advising, and simply listening to and wanting to resolve concerns. Dr. Ollason and his team care about each other, too – it’s obvious, because it’s a happy and positive office – which only adds to a great patient experience!

Nick F. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ollason may look more like an eagle scout than a dentist, but trust me he’s an awesome dentist. He always takes time to talk you through the procedures he’s doing, and to answer any questions you may have, no matter how small. His technique is flawless — of all the dentists I’ve been to, he causes the least amount of discomfort and pain. Dr. Ollason’s staff is also excellent. Very friendly, very chatty (sometimes that is not good when they’re doing work with your mouth wide open, but I appreciate the happy atmosphere). Shout outs to Michelle & Katty who are both great dental assistants.

Nurse N. from Rio Rancho, NM (Source: Yelp)


I had a dental ER and called a phone no. My husband sent me for dental ER. He (dentist) called me back, set an appointment and just fixed my cap… I was pretty calm and he was professional courteous and – do I dare say- fun!! I think I’ve found a new dentist!! Making an appointment when I call on Monday.

I had a dental emergency (broken front tooth) one evening and randomly called the Smile Center phone number. Dr. Ollason kindly called me back, met me at his office at 8 pm, and expertly fixed my tooth so I could be at work the next day. He was gracious and understanding and I immediately felt very comfortable. I highly recommend Dr Ollason and The Smile Center and will continue to be their patient.

Steve M. from Albuquerque, NM (Source: Yelp)


This is a great dental practice–you won’t find better in Albuquerque. Dr. Ollason is an excellent dentist and a very personable fellow. He graduated from one of the top dental schools in the country. He is up to date on the latest in dental technology. He took over an excellent practice from Dr. Frank Montoya. His dental hygienists and office staff are also excellent. My hygienist, Jan, is incredibly good. I have permanent retainers that are difficult to clean around. She does the most thorough job I’ve ever had.

Had and infection in one of my back teeth, brought me some misery for about two months then the past two days it brought me to the point of tears, I couldn’t stand the pain. I called the 24/7 helpline and they had this doctor call me. I was in less than 14 hours later and he immediately started working and viola! Less than 30 minutes later the unbearable pain was gone! Highly recommended you go to these guys, take care of you in a jiffy.

This is a very professional dentist team. I am very impressed. Excellent work and afterwards making sure you ok. Dr. Ollason always finds a solution. Highly recommend it for people who are afraid of dentists. Dr. Ollason helped me with a complicated crown and now my first implant. Everything went very well. For me dentist no. 1!

Carole Parma (Source: Facebook)


The staff are always friendly! And Dr Steve knows his stuff. Always takes his time with you, for chatting and treatment. We had an insurance issue with a dentist my daughter saw in NYC, and ReeAnn was able to get that resolved. Great service at the front and in the chair. They are highly professional and personable. You’ll never regret visiting them!

Spencer Lewallen (Source: Facebook)


Dr Ollason got me in the same day I called about toothache and took excellent care of me. He explained what was going on, his thoughts on treatment and then treated me with very little discomfort. I don’t like going to the dentist (who does), however I am very happy that Dr. Steve is my dentist! Highly recommend him and his staff.

Dr. Ollason’s office has been nothing but a great experience between an emergency visit and now routine cleaning. He has a calming demeanor, and his entire staff is caring, helpful, and dedicated to making your visit a good one. I would absolutely recommend the New Mexico Smile Center to anyone looking for a new dentist or just needing something specific checked out.

Dr. Ollason and his team are absolutely fabulous!!! From scheduling the appointment with Marie (this was my first interaction with the office) to checking in on appointment day. Everyone went above and beyond to provide excellent customer service and pain free care. From start to finish the whole appointment was explained to me. Thank you!!!! I am super thankful I took my daughters advice.

Kathleen S. from Los Lunas, NM (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ollason and the team at the New Mexico Smile Center are the best! I have been going there for over 2 years and, for the first time in my life, I do not dread going to the dentist. They are all extremely professional, knowledgeable, caring and kind. Jan does my cleanings and I never leave in pain as I had with past hygienists at other dental offices. She is very gentle, but still does a great job. The first time I called Dr. Ollason was for a broken tooth emergency. He called me back in about 20 minutes even though it was a Sunday morning. Dr. Ollason is amazing! I have referred several friends to NM Smile Center and I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for a great dental team!

The New Mexico Smile Center provided me with my best dental experience, hands down. I had not had my teeth cleaned in about 10 years, so needless to say I was concerned and apprehensive about my visit. The hygienist, Kelley, curbed my worries with her friendly attitude and her high level of professionalism. She offered me a few great tips, that I didn’t know I needed, for which I was thankful. Kelley was gentle, but thorough, and turned this dreaded event into a simple and relatively painless experience. Dr. Ollason was funny and kind and didn’t patronize me one bit for not getting my teeth cleaned for the past ten years. He let me know that most of patients were in my same position, and that’s ok, and the important thing is that I had finally made it to the dentist. He made me feel appreciated, which isn’t something I’ve felt at the dentist’s office before. He was funny and knowledgeable and easy to talk to. When I do go back to the dentist, (one year from now) I’ll gladly be going back to NM Smile Center.

I love the friendly professional staff here. The doctor is very knowledgeable and friendly. Most important Dr Steve will only recommend work that is truly needed. He listens to you and it shows. The staff is very knowledgeable about what is covered. No matter who I work with, I am confident of quality work with a smile and friendly conversation. I have been going here for years. I highly recommend this office!

Mary Axford (Source: Google)


When I called, I had a quick response time and upon my arrival Dr. Steve Ollason was at the desk to greet me. He was very helpful in taking care of my tooth to get me by until I could see my dentist. The office was very clean and the desk receptionist was very polite and helpful too. If your in need of a great dentist this is your place to go. I would go here if I didn’t already have my own dentist.

This dental office operates efficiently and professionally in all areas. Covi19 precautions were in place and implemented well by all staff who interacted with me. Jan, the dental technician, cleaned my teeth comfortably, gave me flossing supplies, before Dr. Ollason came into assess my teeth. Everything went smoothly. During my one hour visit I did not n encounter another patient. Thank you.

Flash M. from Victorville, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Ollason saved the day! Seriously came in on Sunday for an emergency visit and he set a time and helped me out in my time of need. He is a born and raised local who cares about his patients which is extremely hard to find. Wish he practiced close to me in Texas because he would be my Dentist!

David J. from Stardust Skies Park, Albuquerque, NM (Source: Yelp)


This was the best experience that I have ever had in a dentist chair. I’ve always been afraid of dental offices and have an extreme anxiety towards them. It was the same at first but then Kelli was super nice to me and made sure that i was at ease . The technology they use was also better than I am used to and I left and didn’t feel any pain after my visits. The entire staff including Dr. Ollason were super nice. Everyone smiled and was friendly and made the experience so much easier and less stressful. Thanks NM Smile Center!

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Dr. Ollason for about a year and a half now. The reason I say “working with” is because you can bounce ideas off him and communicate freely during your dental experience! It feels more of a partnership than another average dental visit. I’ve been to dentists in the past where the atmosphere was dull more or less. I’ve also avoided dentists for an extended period of time. Most likely for the same reasons a lot of other people do as well. Dr. Ollason and his staff are professionals in their execution throughout your whole experience, starting even before you walk through the doors! Personally, I’ve had enough work on/in my mouth that surpasses most people. Multiple fillings, a root canal and your periodical cleanings, all pain free. I’ve also had a couple veneers and bone grafts to help strenghten my jaw bone for future implants. Those of which are the next step in this project we formulated over a year ago. In short, if you have a fear of the dentist for whatever reason, Dr. Ollason and his staff will suppress that fear for good. The only way to truly know is to experience it first hand. I can’t thank Dr. Ollason and his staff enough for what they have done for me. If you’re embarrassed for whatever reason, don’t be! The time is now. You will be grateful you did! Just some words of encouragement from someone who was once in your shoes!!!

Rita S. from Albuquerque, NM (Source: Yelp)


I went to Dr. Ollason today for a second opinion regarding some crowns. My family will be changing over to Dr. Ollason. I appreciated his candor and thorough explanation and review of my teeth. His friendly and professional demeanor calmed my anxiety over being in a dental office. I was referred to him by a dental hygienist I have known for many years. I have scheduled replacement of a crown with Dr. Ollason and am feeling I am in excellent hands. His office staff is very warm and friendly as well.

My family and I have had nothing but good experiences here. The staff is always so nice and friendly. My son was very afraid of the dentist. Dr. Ollason was able to relieve his anxiety by being very patient and talking to him through each step reassuring him he was ok. Now my son has no issues with going to the dentist and looks forward to the treasure chest at the end of each visit. This is the best dentist we have had by far. I just want to thank everyone there for being so great!!!

I had a tooth break on a weekend in March 2018. My dentist at the time did not even return my call and I had been seeing him for over 12 years. Dr. Ollason offered to meet me in his office on a Sunday, but I chose to wait until the next morning. I was so impressed with him, his staff, their current technology and wonderful patient care. I am very grateful that I found Dr. Ollason and his amazing team!! I will continue to go there for my ongoing dental needs.

Stefani A. from Albuquerque, NM (Source: Yelp)


I broke a molar last night- of course- it’s Friday night! I began to look for 24/hour emergency dentists- no one really works on Sat.- so, Sat. am I began to search again and called an emergency referral # and was told someone would call me back within the hour- sure, I say to myself…but low-and-behold Dr. Ollason called within 10 minutes! Even more wonderful, he could see me in 30 minutes! As I live in Tijeras he accommodated me by waiting an hour! He was very welcoming, has a beautiful, clean office, and took care of me himself as no office staff were there. I’ll need a crown (yikes), but he examined the tooth, put in a temporary filling so I’d be comfortable, and DIDN’T EVEN CHARGE ME for anything as I’ll be coming back for the crown- I was stunned and grateful! He has an amazingly gentle touch- he didn’t need to numb me for the procedure and I felt absolutely no discomfort; and, he has a great sense of humor! You can bet I will be recommending him to anyone who will listen to me- go see this young, motivated gentle, kind, new Dentist please!!

Broke a tooth, called everywhere, it was the eve before Thanksgiving. The only one in the city who called me back was Dr. Ollason. He came out Thanksgiving morning to care for my tooth and relieve my pain. Thanksgiving morning!!! Who does that? Only a dentist who genuinely cares, that’s who. I was in and out of pain in no time. He is amazing. I have seen several dentist over the years and he by far is the best! I am without dental insurance these days, and he was affordable. What an amazing human being. I highly recommend Dr. Ollason. I cannot thank him enough. He even texted me this morning after 9 to see how I was feeling. That is a true professional, with a big heart! Grateful this Thanksgiving weekend.

Accommodating, efficient and organized. Staff friendly, informed and caring. Remembers my name and family. Dr O has friendly attitude, always smiling. Has been in dental field for some time and I feel confident that he is well trained and competent. I would recommend him without hesitation!

David Jenkins (Source: Google)


Everyone is so friendly from the front desk,to the office manager, and Dr. Ollason everyone had a smile . Kelli was amazing and made everything seem like it was no big deal. I’m extremely fearful of dentist offices and when I started it was the same but soon I was at ease and even fell asleep in the chair once. The technology the use is also amazing. I left and did not feel any pain afterwards which has also never happened. Overall it was the greatest experience I ever had in a chair.

David Jenkins (Source: Facebook)


The entire staff is super friendly and make sure you are comfortable. The technology that they use is also way better than I have been around and made my experience much easier and painless. Kellie was amazing and super professional the entire time and I was comfortable enough to fall asleep which has never happened. It was by far the best experience I have ever had in a dentist chair.
