Our Team

Dr. Curtis BrookoverDr. Curtis Brookover


After graduating Dental School in 1998 Dr. B. needed a change in climate, and the high desert was the perfect place. He enjoys living in northern New Mexico and enjoys all that it has to offer. He is passionate about dentistry, especially early childhood growth and development and cranial facial pain due to his own experience of wearing braces for over a decade, which had a major impact on his career choice after all those years in pain and wanting to find answers. He especially enjoys people, dirt bikes, and placing implants.
