Committed to Excellence

Committed to excellence in dentistry as well as progressive, environmental and humanitarian causes. More than a promise, it’s the guiding principle for everything we do.

That means we’re committed first to total dental health, the harmony of three essential elements – strong, decay-free teeth; healthy, disease-free gums; and a properly functioning occlusion or bite. It’s a harmony that comes only from close attention to detail, including the best quality x-rays and impressions, high-power magnification and the most exacting dental laboratories and zero-defect dental technique.

With most people, simply achieving total dental health will give them a smile they are satisfied with. Some, though, may wish to do more and take advantage of the full array of cosmetic options we offer. These, too, we approach with the same high-level attention to detail and artful technique.

Whether your needs call for general, cosmetic or more complex restorative dentistry, the most successful course of treatment depends on your dentist’s ability to exercise care, skill and judgment. Care, to make your health and appearance the highest priority. Skill, to expertly perform whatever is needed with total precision. And judgment, to know and help you decide the best options to meet your needs.

That’s the promise we make. And that’s the promise we keep.


Many of you know I ran a well respected dental office in Santa Fe for almost 40 years.

There are many reasons I believe I can say it was well respected, among them, and critically, was a wonderful staff. There were other reasons as well. Attention to detail, a comfortable and unthreatening facility, up to date equipment, public service, and, after much hard work, pretty good listening skills.

Another reason was my dedication to continuing education. The very best teacher I ever had, was an extraordinary dental practitioner and educator named Frank Spear.

Some years ago, Dr. Spear set up a teaching institute in Scottsdale Arizona.

This facility is no doubt the leading dental education destination in the world, and Dr. Spear has selected the best young dentists to join his faculty to help pass on his knowledge to others.
I am proud to say that the man who took over my practice, Dr. Josh Rogoff, has been selected to be one of the extraordinary dentists Dr Spear has chosen.

I knew Dr. Rogoff was talented and dedicated from the day we met and has been my dentist ever since. And now this external validation.
And the icing on the cake is that my entire staff, my 2nd family, is still there to welcome me and the Santa Fe community to an office I still am proud of.

If you are looking for a dental home, I highly recommend calling Dr Rogoff, at (505)988-3500.
