Since 1974, Implant Dentistry of the Southwest has been on a mission to serve high-quality prosthodontics and implant dentistry to adults in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and those from Santa Fe, Colorado, Arizona and California. We offer a variety of services and work hard to provide exceptional patient care, so you can enjoy life with a beautifully restored smile.


Dr. Burton Melton is proud to be a leading prosthodontist in the state of New Mexico. He graduated with his dental degree from Baylor University in 1970 and earned a diploma in fixed prosthodontics in 1972 from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. He had the opportunity to receive the very best training while serving in the U.S. Navy and is a Vietnam veteran. To this day, Dr. Melton continues to dedicate his time and expertise to our country, our heroes and our patients.

When he is not attending to his patients, Dr. Melton enjoys lecturing on the implant process, including diagnosis, treatment, procedure, and options between fixed and removable implant prosthodontics. He also has the fortunate opportunity to speak extensively on a national and international level.
