Dr. Timothy Gutierrez did an amazing job! I informed him I have high dental anxiety, and he made sure I went in with no nerves or anxiousness. I think I was in the office for a whole hour before everything was done! I will recommend this office to everyone. Thank you for making my wisdom tooth extraction so easy!

Chenelle R. | Albuquerque, NM

I had a crown break on Thanksgiving weekend (and) went to Dr. Gutierrez because the root of that tooth needed to be extracted. I hadn’t had a tooth pulled in over 17 years, plus I have three vertebrae fused in my neck, so going back in the dentist chair is very hard for me. Everyone at Dr. Gutierrez’s office was great! They listened about my neck issues and helped to make me comfortable.

Danette R. | Albuquerque, NM

Thank you, Dr. Gutierrez, for a job well done. Less than 20 hours after my tooth extraction (due to an infection in the root), I have absolutely no swelling and no pain. You did an excellent job! Thank you.
