Our dedicated staff has a combined over 100 years experience in the dental field. Your journey will begin by hearing Elaine's friendly voice when you call. She will listen to your needs and schedule you appropriately whether it's for an emergency visit, a second opinion or just to meet Dr. Mortley. If you are getting your teeth cleaned you will meet Linda our hygienist. Our patients think she is the "gentleist dentalist hygienist" around. Like Elaine and Melony she has been with Dr. Mortley since he was skinny and had hair. You will always see Dr. Mortley for a new patient exam where he will take the time to explain what he has found, what can be fixed, and what you can do to keep your teeth healthy in the future.
Dr. Mortley graduated with a BS degree in Microbiology from Brigham Young University in 1978. He went on to dental school at the University of Missouri at Kansas City graduating in 1982. He practiced in Iowa before returning to the state he grew up in--New Mexico--in 1983; and has been here ever since. He went to Mitchell Elementary, Hoover Middle School, and El Dorado High School in his youth. He will always be a straight shooter and tell you only what he feels you need for optimum dental health, not what some corporation, whose only motive is profit, would want you to "need." When not in the office, Dr. Mortley enjoys writing novels, gardening, astronomy, hydroponics, bees and golf.
