The Haltom Team is led by father and son orthodontists, Drs. Tucker and Darren Haltom. Together, they bring decades of experience and a contagious passion for orthodontics and for providing great results to every patient we treat. That passion is a hallmark of our entire team and something even our patients share. In fact, patients of our orthodontic offic say that they feel like a part of our family and we measure our success not only by the smiles we create but the amazing relationships we develop along the way.
We believe that finances should never come between you and the very best treatment available. That’s why we offer affordable payment plans with interest-free financing and it’s just one of the reasons we partner with Smiles Change Lives to provide braces for deserving kids who couldn’t otherwise have treatment.
Dr. Tucker has been in practice for over 40 years in Albuquerque. Orthodontists from all over the United States know him as a "great finisher", which means he's known for the amazing smiles he is able to create. He is Board Certified by the American Board of Orthodontists and serves this organization as an examiner. He is also an Emirates member of the prestigious Super Schulman Group which is comprised of the top 1% of orthodontics in all of North America and is the only orthodontist in New Mexico to be given membership into this exclusive group. Dr. Tucker is a past president of the RMSO and the National Angle Society, and served on the Board of the American College of Orthodontics.
Dr. Darren has been creating amazing smiles in our practice since 2009. He has been responsible for leading our team in new technologies designed to make treatment faster, more esthetic and more comfortable. He is Board Certified by the American Board of Orthodontists, President of the Rocky Mountain Society of Orthodontists and member of the Super Schulman Group along with Dr. Tucker. Dr. Darren is known for his ability to really understand patients' needs and has advanced training in treating people with jaw joint issues. Both Dr. Darren and his wife, Kimberly, are proud to be Lobos and love working together in leading Haltom Orthodontics.
