Albuquerque Orthodontics

Dr. Dunn is originally from Utah but moved to Albuquerque as soon as he could. He attended Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry, where he received his DDS. He went on to specialize in orthodontics, studying at Jacksonville University School of Orthodontics, following that training with fellowships and residency programs. He is a Board Certified Orthodontist and is involved with both the American Association of Orthodontists and the American Dental Association.

Dr. Dunn, his wife, and their 5 children take full advantage of the great weather in Albuquerque. Biking, hiking, and swimming take up a lot of their spare time. They love living here in Albuquerque.

Why is Albuquerque so Great?

Albuquerque, NM has certainly made its mark on the U.S. map. Its most obvious claim to fame may be the International Balloon Fiesta but, it is also the setting for “Breaking Bad,” the AMC show that broke records and developed a cult following. Located in just about the center of the state, Albuquerque boasts a metro population of over a million people, with the infrastructure and culture to support a variety of interests and vocations.

Our busy, growing city is listed in the Top 100 Best Places to Live in the U.S., and its cost of living is below the national average. Average rent in this area is $815 per month, and you get to live in a sunny city! In fact, with over 300 sunny days a year, you can spend plenty of time on the Rio Grande River, which runs right through the center of town. Fishing, skiing, and other water sports are part of the daily life here.

There are museums, parks, theaters, and fine restaurants throughout Albuquerque, offering entertainment and cultural opportunities to residents and visitors alike. Do you like things spicy? Albuquerque is known for its green chili dishes, with several of our restaurants drawing diners from across the state. In fact, we’re the birthplace of several restaurant chains!


Besides cultural attractions, we have some unique transit options. The Sandia Peak Tramway is the second-longest in the world, with a peak elevation of 10,300 feet above sea level. Interstate 25, also known as the Pan-American, is the main north-south highway in the state, and I-40 runs east-west. This makes it easy to get to and from Albuquerque without having to resort to two-lane highways. There are also several boulevards that enable you to navigate the surface streets without getting stuck in traffic.

We have Amtrak and the New Mexico Rail Runner Express for commuters – yes, you can “ride the rails” to work or your orthodontic appointment! In fact, you can take a train to Santa Fe any time during the week. We are also a bicycle-friendly city. There are bike trails and paths all over the city to make it easy to ride your bike to many venues. Albuquerque is also ranked as one of the most walkable cities in the U.S. Albuquerque has an International Airport and a private airport, so your friends and relatives from around the world can come see you.


Besides being a great place to live and work, Albuquerque has some of the best medical care in the southwest. In fact, we are the hub for medical care in New Mexico, with several cutting-edge medical facilities. We are also home to New Mexico’s only teaching hospital, the University of New Mexico Hospital.
