Trustworthy. Gentle. Professional. Respectful. Prompt. Efficient. Informative. Dr. Adkins goes above and beyond. I have not felt this safe in a dentist chair ever.

I've been going to Dr. Adkins since he took over this practice. He and his staff are the perfect blend of friendly and professional. I never feel like he is pushing me to a decision, but he takes the time to cover all the options. He has upgraded the equipment since he has been here, and I truly feel I am getting great care. Dr. Adkins, Jessica, Desiree and Helen are AWESOME!

I have been Dr. Adkins's patient for several years now and so is my whole family. He's excellent and very caring. My teeth and gums are in perfect health thanks to his guidance. He is always aspiring to keep his practice on the cutting edge and gives his patients what is essential. I just got some very old fillings replaced and he did the work masterfully and replaced them when necessary. He is proactive and I thank him and his staff for being so caring and professional always.

Dr. Adkins is a very thorough, gentle, reassuring dentist. I started seeing him after a different dentist recommended I have several expensive procedures done. He gave my teeth a thorough exam and decided I really didn't need all that work. I have a lot of confidence in him and his staff; also, he has a very warm and friendly demeanor which I appreciate in a dentist!!
Dr. Adkins is very experience and is great with his patients! He always ensures that his patients are comfortable. Great environment! Friendly staff!

Helen always works around my schedule. By far the best dental experience I've had in 50+ years, wouldn't go anywhere else.

Dr. Adkins is very professional and courteous. He explains all procedures and has a gentle touch. I felt completely relaxed and experienced no pain at all. I realize now that I have been getting shoddy dental care in the past from other providers.
in Albuquerque, NM |
When I have an appointment, it feels like I am going to visit family members (ones I enjoy going to see). Everyone is happy to see me and asks how my family is. When I am in the chair they explain what they are going to do in plain English, not their medical terms. And when I leave, I know they did the best they could to make me feel comfortable. I have only had one other dentist like Dr. Adkins, and that was when I was a small child. No one really cares more than Dr. Adkins and his team.

When I first arrived at Dr. Adkin's office 2 years ago, I was very anxious and fearful due to bad dental experiences in my past. I was unable to do visits alone and my husband accompanied me. I was so scared I would cry. Today I arrived alone and not one tear! I do not know if I am over my anxiety, but I trust Dr. Adkin to make my visit enjoyable. His staff is outstanding, Monica and Deriree are the best! Thanks Helen and Kathy for being patient with appointments. Love You Guys! Mean It!

I've been treated by Dr. Adkins since retiring from military service in 2009. His level of professionalism is outstanding, and I have never felt uncomfortable about procedures performed or their necessity. Dr. Adkins clearly answers all questions and concerns clearly and succinctly for ease of decision making. I have regular cleanings with hygienist, Monica, who does a fantastic job, very pain free. Her level of skill is outstanding. I highly recommend his office and staff. - Eric Dahl, D.C.

I was recommended by a former friend. My experiences have ALWAYS been positive. I have always been treated with dignity and kindness. I have received gifts for my students from the staff. And, a card my students had made, is still on a shelf in his offices. I'm deeply touched.

I've been a patient since Dr. Adkins took over the practice and he's been the best dentist I've had in my 61 years (I know, I'm old!). He's kind, gentle, patient, and understanding. I've had several old fillings replaced and 2-3 root canals and crowns. And his staff is just as great, including Jessica (hygienist) and Helen in the front office!

I have visited many dentists in my life and Dr. Adkins has all the qualities I seek in a dentist: He is very knowledgeable and involves the patient in all the decision making. He explains the options in a way that is understandable to laypeople and he has a very caring way of interacting. I am usually very tense at the dentist's office and Dr. Adkins made me feel relaxed. I highly recommend him. Also, his assistant and the dental hygienist are both excellent.

After having one of the best dentists/doctors in the City (Armand Giannini Sr.-now retired) for many years, Dr. Adkins has met all of my dental needs. He is professional, a perfectionist, gentle when giving shots to numb the mouth, friendly and explains everything in detail. His staff is lovely too. They all seem happy and they process the paperwork for you. He works with state-of-art equipment and the work he has performed on my teeth has been top notch. I highly recommend Dr. Adkins.
