A New Mexico Native Happy to Be Home
Dr. Hurtado is a New Mexico native who was raised on his family's ranch in Holman. He trained as a dentist and surgeon at prestigious institutions in both Texas and Kentucky. As an already distinguished young surgeon, he had the opportunity to practice virtually anywhere. Dr. Hurtado chose to return home to our state.
Dr. Hurtado is trained in all aspects of oral and maxillofacial surgery. He has a special interest in dentoalveolar surgery, office-based anesthesia, dental implants, and bone grafting. Providing these life-changing procedures to the communities he grew up in is especially rewarding. Another factor that called him back home was the lifestyle. To this day, Dr. Hurtado loves ranching, the outdoors, and sharing these important parts of life in New Mexico with his beloved wife and kids.
Dr. Hurtado Discusses His Career
Santa Fe Loves Dr. Hurtado
Dr Diego Hurtado and his office and staff are just wonderful. Dr Hurtado answered all my many questions respectfully and with much patience and kindness. The extraction went well and the healing process also. He saw me for a follow up. He even noted that I should check out an unrelated tooth with my local dentist which turned out to have a cavity. He is a highly observant oral surgeon that goes the extra mile. I highly recommend him.View on Google
These folks totally saved me by working me into their schedule for an emergency extraction. No exaggeration.... I had a dangerous situation. I'm totally indebted to them. They were efficient and knowledgeable, AND super friendly.View on Google
Dr. Hurtado's Education
Set Himself Apart
As a medical resident, Dr. Hurtado was selected for the highly competitive Clinical Observership Program run by the Osteo Science Foundation. This afforded him the opportunity to train under Dr. Anthony Sclar, an implant expert who at that time had already completed over 20,000 dental implant procedures.

Types of Implants Provided by Dr. Hurtado
Dr. Hurtado in Santa Fe offers three types of dental implants:
Traditional dental implants are surgically embedded into your jaw. They can support dentures, crowns, or a dental bridge. Traditional implants provide maximum stability and support while preventing jawbone atrophy.
When patients invest in dental implants, they want results as soon as possible. To help expedite both recovery and restoration. Dr. Hurtado can place same-day implants. This eliminates the need to receive multiple surgeries and allows you to take advantage of an implant-supported tooth replacement solution right away.
All-on-4 implants support a full-arch denture in the upper or lower jaw using just four dental implants. In many cases, the special placement configuration of All-on-4 can allow patients who would otherwise require a bone graft to receive dental implants with little or no prep work.
We Can Help You Budget For Outstanding Care
Dental implants are not covered by basic insurance, but restorations like crowns, bridges, and dentures usually are. We are pre-authorized with the largest insurance providers and most carriers in general. We will help you get the best possible coverage for all qualifying treatments.
Out-of-pocket costs can be made significantly more manageable thanks to financing. Dr. Hurtado accepts CareCredit® — a third-party financing option that breaks dental payments into convenient monthly installments with little or no interest.
