Dr. Sparks did a sinus lift and implant. The procedure was 100 % successful even though after reviewing the initial X-rays he suggested we had a 50/50 chance. He is fantastic.

I have been a patient of Dr. Sparks for many years and I have been extremely happy with the dental care I have received. He is always very patient and kind and listens/responds to any issues I have. The dental hygienist is wonderful as well. She is very gentle and makes me feel completely comfortable while cleaning my teeth. I highly recommend Dr. Sparks to anyone looking for a great periodontist.

Dr. Sparks and his staff do an excellent job! I had an implant and periodontal work done. Kalin had advised me to get a Sonic toothbrush and a Waterpick water floss machine and my deep pockets have gotten much better. I thank God for their excellent care!

Dr. Sparks took immediate interest and care after suffering tooth pain ignored by my primary dentist. He explained what was wrong and guided me through the procedure of an implant. His gentle, kind manner backed by his knowledge put me at ease and trust. I highly recommend this good doctor.

I recently had gum graft surgery, which I put off for many years. If I would have known, then, what I now know, today, I wouldn't have hesitated to have the surgery done years ago. Dr. Sparks is amazing! The results from the surgery are significant, better than I ever imagined. Dr. Sparks and his entire staff are focused on providing both; friendly and impeccable service. If I need treatment in the future I will return to Dr. Sparks office without doubt. Thank you Dr. Sparks & Team!

I met with Dr. Sparks for a pre-exam. I had a complaint about his office procedures, which I mentioned to his staff. I asked him to call me, but he refused. Rather, he had his office staff call me to tell me to find another periodontist. Can you imagine if I had called to complain about his procedure?

Dr. Sparks did good work. His staff is terrible. His billing person charged me almost $800 too much then fought with me to give me a refund. When I asked for bills with dental insurance billing codes on them so I could submit them to my health insurance, which covers dental surgery, his office refused, which stopped me from getting some of his overcharge reimbursed. They are all about the money, honey. They harassed me by phone for three days when they learned that I went to another dentist

Dr. Sparks was recommended by my dentist. Despite the fact I had very bad experience with previous dentist in NE Albuquerque, Dr. Sparks showed me trust and knowledge at the first appointment. I felt very comfortable to have him done a few surgeries (implants). I had no complications in post surgeries period. Doctor contacted me after surgeries and I felt he cares about patient. Usually easy to schedule an appointment, nice and clean office. I want to thank all staff for taking care of me.

Dr. Sparks did four implants for me over a period of a year and a half. The experience was a huge success. It has been a year now and I am so very glad that I went to Dr. Sparks for the procedures. Dr. Sparks is extremely talented in what he does and his "bedside manner" is exceptional. I have never been happier about going to a dentist and my mouth/teeth are the best they have ever been. Many thanks to Dr. Sparks and his marvelous staff; they couldn't have been more friendly, caring and pr
