ABOUT Dr. Devin Giron
The Giron family knows a good thing when they find it. Twelve generations ago they settled in New Mexico, and a few hundred years later New Mexico native Dr. Devin Giron is still in awe of the wonders of our beautiful state. Arts… culture… natural beauty… fly fishing… gardening. All of Dr. Giron’s favorite leisure activities are available in abundance here!
Dr. Giron graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of New Mexico with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry. He then attended the University of Missouri-Kansas City, where he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. After working in private practice Dr. Giron went into public health, serving as a General Dentist at the Isleta Pueblo Health Center for over five years. Now he is back in private practice in Santa Fe, bringing his easy-going manner and gentle style of dentistry to all of his patients.
You’ll be in good hands with Dr. Giron. As a dentist, there are three things that truly set Dr. Giron apart from his peers:
• Broad clinical expertise – Isleta Pueblo gave him extensive experience with a wide variety of up-to-date dental techniques, materials and diagnoses.
• Top quality materials, instruments, and technology – He even uses a dental microscope. This enables far more precise and conservative treatment than what is possible when using standard dental loupes, which in turn gives you the beautiful, long-lasting results you want.
• Unhurried care – To ensure he has plenty of time to develop relationships with each patient and address all of their concerns, Dr. Giron schedules fewer appointments per day. It’s all about quality, not quantity.
Plus, Dr. Giron truly loves dentistry… and the joy he finds in his work shows. “The trust that patients give me every day has allowed me to build wonderful relationships,” he says. “I am deeply grateful for these bonds, which I truly cherish.

“I was born in Grimsby Ontario Canada but grew up in the small beachside town of Flagler Beach, FL and also lived in SC for 14 years. I, along with my husband and family, moved to Los Alamos in 1998. I received my Associates degree in dental hygiene in 1982 and recently completed my Bachelor’s degree at UNM. I love helping my patients achieve the best oral health possible since I fully understand how much this contributes to one’s overall health. I regularly attend, and greatly enjoy, CE classes. I enjoy staying physically active, regularly lift weights and participate in Zumba classes. I also enjoy knitting and taking various art classes. In addition, with six children our lives stay busy with sports, school, and a variety of family activities.”
“I’m a native of Santa Fe and a graduate of UNM with a Bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene. Working one-on-one with patients, getting to know them and having a hand in helping improve their oral health is just one of the many enjoyable aspects of being a dental hygienist. :)”
