The Albuquerque Area Braces Program is located at the Albuquerque IHS Dental Clinic. We accept referrals from Albuquerque Area IHS, Tribal and Urban dental programs. Your local dental clinic will help you get the required referral to be seen at our program. Call your local dental clinic to find out how your child can get braces at our clinic.
Your child must be 14 years or younger at the time for the referral to be considered for braces. Once you have been referred to our program, we will tell you the steps needed to be in the program.
Braces can help build your child's self esteem by straightening teeth and aligning the jaw for dental health and a beautiful smile.
We are proud to be accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), a private, non-profit organization established as the leader in developing standards to advance and promote patient safety, quality care, and value for ambulatory health care through peer based accreditation processes, education, and research.
