It is our goal to have all children looking forward to going to the dentist. We do so by providing quality dental care, but making sure it is delivered in a comfortable and pleasant manner conducive to your child’s happiness. Our highly trained and competent staff is equipped to meet the individual needs of any baby, infant or child that needs dental care.

Whether your child is just beginning dental treatment, or has already started, you can be sure that after a visit with Dr. Meckler, they will think going to the dentist is fun!


At Meckler Pediatric Dentistry, we make sure to not over-book appointment times. This means that your appointment timeframe has been reserved for your child, and your child alone. Because of this, we request that if you need to cancel your appointment, to please give a 24-hour notice so we may offer that appointment time to another patient. We are aware that unforeseen circumstances can arise that require you to miss your appointment without giving a 24-hour notice, and in serious cases, exceptions can be made.


Meckler Pediatric Dentistry is dedicated to helping all our Albuquerque, Bernalillo and Rio Rancho patients maximize their insurance coverage. Insurance policies are highly varied on an individual basis, so while we can estimate the coverage in good faith, we cannot fully guarantee coverage amount due the highly complex nature of insurance contracts. The amount we estimate that will not be covered by insurance must be paid at the time of the appointment that renders the service. For convenience, we will bill the insurance companies for the services and allow the companies 45 days to submit payment. After 60 days, if the insurance company does not render payment, you are responsible for paying the remaining balance in full.
