What Makes ABQ Orthodontics Different?

Satisfaction Guarantee

At ABQ Orthodontics, we offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee over the course of treatment to every person we treat. If you are not satisfied with your orthodontic treatment during this time, we will do what it takes within reason to make it right at no extra cost to you. We know that braces are no small investment, so we stand behind our treatment ensuring that you can have your happy, healthy smile. This is just another reason why people choose us when looking for the best orthodontist in Albuquerque, NM!

Extensive Experience

Dr. Russell Trapnell has treated thousands of patients and knows that each smile — and each treatment — is unique. By taking the time to truly listen to patients and their vision of their ultimate smile, we can identify which treatment option is best for each individual patient. We know it’s a journey and we’re with you every step of the way to provide the positive office experience and excellent results that we know patients seek in an orthodontic practice. We go the extra mile – just to see you smile!

Same Day Appointments

At ABQ Orthodontics, you can find comfort in knowing that your orthodontic needs are our priority. We don’t put you on a waiting list for your first appointment like other orthodontic offices might do. You won’t have to wait weeks or months just to find out that your transition to a new smile can’t start for several weeks. Our team at ABQ Orthodontics will get you in the door as quickly as possible, and even get your braces and orthodontic treatment started on the same day as your appointment, if you request it. We welcome you to explore this option and discuss your preferences with our orthodontist.

Retainers Included With Treatment

Wrapping up your orthodontic treatment should be a happy time, but finding out you owe more money than you expected can cause even the brightest smile to dim. Part of the ABQ Orthodontics philosophy is an all-inclusive approach to treatment estimates. That means you’ll know exactly how much your braces will cost – and everything that will be included – from the outset. No hidden fees, no surprise bills, and no extra charge for your retainers.

That’s right – we include retainers as part of your orthodontic treatment and the cost is included in your estimate, too. You’re trusting us with your teeth, and we take that responsibility very seriously. By eliminating unexpected costs, we’re proving every day that ABQ Orthodontics is a name you can rely on.

Flexible Payment Options

At ABQ Orthodontics, we offer various flexible payment options so you don’t have to sacrifice expert care for affordable treatment. We allow patients to make monthly payments with 0% interest and allow payments to extend longer than the scheduled treatment time. We even have payment plans starting as low as $129 per month. We do not use third parties for payment or collections, and we accept CareCredit. This is just another reason why people choose us when looking for the best orthodontist in Albuquerque, NM.

Advanced Technology

In the same way that a computer 10 years ago is not the same as a computer today, orthodontic treatments, too, have advanced by leaps and bounds. If you had braces 10 years ago or more, you will notice how different the process is now on the very first visit! Our expert orthodontists made a commitment many years ago to always keep up with the latest technology and cutting-edge treatment options.

ABQ Orthodontics relies on Planmeca & Sirona digital low-radiation x-rays and the most advanced 3D intraoral scanners by iTero. Our orthodontist is a certified Invisalign provider and we offer advanced Empower® self-ligating braces.
