Meet Founder, Dr. Trapnell

I wasn’t one of those lucky kids who always knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. My answer to that question was usually a forest ranger, or an Air force jet pilot. Even after starting college I still wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to do with my life. The one thing I was certain of was I wanted to help people. During my college years, my older brother Chris said, “Hey, you like to work with your hands and you could run a business, you should be a dentist.” I took his advice, and nine years later became an orthodontist, and I love it!! I truly enjoy creating beautiful smiles and watching our patient’s confidence soar.

This desire to help others is in my blood. I have 4 brothers who are all orthodontists, my sister and mom are career nurses, my grandfather was a dentist, and my father is one of the nicest people you could ever meet. I am grateful for and humbled by the opportunity I have to help our patients obtain a smile they can be proud of. I take that responsibility very seriously, but we really like to have fun along the way. My wife Julie and I have six children who remind us every day just how great kids are! Outside of work you will find me trying to keep up with my kids, camping and hiking, or driving anything with a motor. I hope I get the chance to meet you in the office!!

We had consults with 3 orthodontist and ABQ Orthodontics came out on top! They had the best plan and explained every step of the procedure with us. That was 3 years ago, and we couldn't be happier. My son's smile looks great and now I'm looking to get braces with ABQ Orthodontics too!
