About Dr. Kasha Ujda
I knew from a young age that I wanted to be a dentist, and I cannot imagine my life in any other field. I am passionate about helping my patients improve their oral health and achieve beautiful smiles. I not only love the physical aspect of my job but I also love that it allows me to build personal relationships with my patients as we tackle dental health objectives together.
I graduated with a bachelor degree in Biology from Loyola University in Chicago. Then I attended Creighton University College of Dentistry and graduated in the top five of the class, winning many awards. As the last step in my education I completed a general dentistry residency at UNM where I achieved proficiency in numerous specialties in the field, including treatment of patients with severe developmental disabilities or complex medical issues.
I strongly believe in lifelong learning and challenging myself to master new skills and the most effective treatment options available. I am a fellow and a member of the International Dental Implant Association as well as an active member of the Academy of General Dentistry. I am also in the process of finishing my fellowship with the Academy of General Dentistry.
I moved to New Mexico with my husband Luke, a pharmacist. We loved the weather and lifestyle in New Mexico and quickly knew it was where we wanted to establish long-term roots. We are so happy to be raising our daughter Maya and our son John here. Along with our boxer Maximus, our little ones keep us constantly entertained and busy!
With the help of Dr. Riesenberger, Laura, Garrett, Quiauna, Raquel, Samantha, Edgar, Allison, Fatima and Estephanie, I look forward to providing you and your family with an exceptional dental office experience. I am excited to meet with you and discuss your dental concerns. We are committed to providing you with the highest level of care, driven by the newest technology and up-to-date, evidence-based practice, in a professional and friendly manner.
Please do not hesitate to call or visit us with any questions or just to say hello.
Very truly yours,
Dr. Kasha Ujda
About Zachary Riesenberger DDS
I was born and raised in Upstate New York — specifically Rochester, NY. I obtained my undergraduate education at the University of Rochester, a bachelor’s degree in biology. During my time at the University of Rochester, I was able to study abroad in the beautiful city of Sydney, Australia. This is where my fascination with travel started. I took a few years off to work and travel as much as financially possible. I explored Europe, Central America, and the Caribbean. I was then accepted into the University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine in 2009. I graduated in 2013 with my Doctorate in Dental Surgery with two minors, one in pediatric dentistry and one in periodontics. I then moved out to Albuquerque New Mexico for my studies at the University of New Mexico, Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency. There, I was trained in advanced surgical techniques, managing/treating patients with compromised health, hospital dentistry, pediatric dentistry, as well as comprehensive dentistry. During the past 2 years I have been attending the world renowned Kois advanced dental training program in Seattle. I anticipate graduating later this year, as one of only 2 dentists in New Mexico.
I currently reside in Albuquerque, NM. I enjoy the sunshine (big change from New York), fishing, sailing, snowboarding, camping, traveling, and scuba diving. I also play the saxophone and raise chickens. I look forward to providing top-notch comprehensive dentistry for all of my patients with a calm and relaxed demeanor. With a dedicated focus on providing honest, thorough, and down to earth care for my patients. I am excited to meet you, gaining your trust, and working together towards your optimal oral health!
