Lori Leyba-Martinez, RDH

Dental Hygienist

My name is Lori Leyba-Martinez. I was born and raised in northern New Mexico and worked in the dental public health field for twelve years as a dental assistant. Then, wanting to further my dental education and set a good example for my children, I returned to school and earned a Bachelor of Dental Hygiene Science from the University of New Mexico (Albuquerque) in 2009.  I’m now a Registered Dental Hygienist, a member of the Hispanic Dental Association, and fluent in English and Spanish.

I recently joined the wonderful team at Santa Fe Place Dental and love being near my family here in Santa Fe. I think of my patients as extended family and take great pleasure in providing them with the best dental care possible. At home I enjoy gardening, fishing and ranching.

I look forward to meeting and serving my growing family of new dental patients!
