ABQ Moms Blog Guide to Dentists & Orthodontists


As soon as those first little baby teeth start to sprout, parents start to have questions about their kiddo’s teeth! How soon do we take them to the dentist? How often do they need a checkup? What if they need corrective measures? How do I combat cavities? What if my child is afraid of the dentist?

There are many wonderful dentists, orthodontists, and specialists who are passionate about taking care of the whole family’s teeth.  Our goal with this guide is to bring your family a one-stop listing for Albuquerque area dental professionals. We are excited to partner with some great local businesses to provide you with this Guide to Dentists & Orthodontists.

Koala Sleep Centers

8311 San Pedro Dr NE #3, Albuquerque, NM 87113

Koala Medical Dental Clinics provide treatment for TMJ-TMD, snoring, sleep apnea, headaches, and fatigue. These sleep disorders can affect everyone in the family, including young children. Children with sleep apnea may snore loudly, sweat heavily during sleep, or exhibit bed-wetting. During the day, children with sleep apnea may have behavioral problems, irritability, headaches, or experience a slow rate of growth.

At Koala KidZzz, Dr. Eric Coontz is a licensed general dentist certified in Sleep Medicine, who can provide a comfortable treatment option for patients suffering from sleep apnea and TMJ/TMD. Oral Appliance Therapy is a non-surgical, non-pharmacological option.

Koala KidZzz offers solutions that not only treat sleep disordered breathing, but also promote correct oral habits, proper facial development and airways, and will result in teeth that are straight. Treatment can begin with children as young as two years old.
