Meet the Owners: Dr. Travis Watson and Deidra Watson - Farmington, NM Dentist | Piñon Hills Dental

Travis and Deidra purchased Pinon Hills Dental from Deidra's Father, Harvey Weber in 2011. Our goals as business owners are to honor his legacy by serving our community with integrity and treating our team members and patients with compassion in all things. 

We are proud of our team members. They have been hand selected for their technical skills and aptitude for customer service. It takes each one of us to keep this machine in motion. Most of them have been with us for many years. Longevity and consistency are important for continuity of care. We like each other's company and enjoy being here every day. We think you will notice. 

It is important to us to be locally and family owned. This allows us to make the best decisions for your care without being dictated to by production goals that are implemented by business owners that are out of state and do not know our patients and their unique needs.

We do our best to stay ahead of the latest trends and advancements in dentistry while still keeping our fees in the midrange. 

Whether you are a long standing patient or new to our practice we thank you for trusting us with your dental needs. We know that you have many excellent dentists in the area to choose from and we are humbled that you chose us.

    Travis Watson
    Farmington, NM Dentist

    I grew up in western Nebraska and graduated from the University of Nebraska College of Dentistry in 2008. I've been married to Deidra since 2001 and I have two sons. 

    I love: golfing, traveling, watching the Huskers and the Broncos, dark chocolate, and ketchup (not together).

    I dislike: inconsiderate people, stepping in water in socks, and being late.

    You may not know that: I call my mom almost every day. I am very competitive and love to earn trophies. I am a practical joker and am quite good at juggling. 

  • Deidra Watson
    Office Manager

    I grew up in the dental office. My father is Dr. Harvey Weber. I started out as a child licking stamps and folding letters and then began doing more advanced clerical work. By the time I was a teenager I was working in the lab pouring up models. I received a Bachelor’s of Dental Hygiene from the University of Nebraska in 2002 and worked for six years in that profession while putting my husband through dental school. At the same time, I went to night school for my Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling. We moved to Farmington in 2008. My husband, Dr. Travis Watson, and I purchased the practice from my dad in 2011. All the years I’ve spent in the office and my experience as a hygienist working in different offices and even the University setting has really helped me to understand the ins and outs of a dental practice and I enjoy the challenges of owning a business. 

    I love: my two sons, epiphanies, a good nap, Netflix, Indian food.

    I dislike: being hot, waking up early, bake chocolate desserts, giving bad news.

    You may not know that I: play the piano and participate in Fantasy Football.

  • "I firmly BELIEVE in painless dentistry, and I am happy to say, that the wonderful folks at Pinon Hills Dental also believe in it! I cannot say enough good things about my care there! Dr. Vanden Broeck and her assistant were genuinely concerned about my comfort. I will need more care ahead, and this is my absolute, go to, dental office!"

  • "Travis Watson was truly the most kind, compassionate, honest, and detail-oriented dentist that I have ever been to. I have had work done by at least a half dozen or more dentists over the years, and Dr. Watson was BY FAR the most compassionate, kind, and caring when it came to my procedure and dental work needs. I couldn't possibly recommend. Dr. Watson and Pinon Hills Dental any higher. Five stars isn't enough. Dr. Watson should get 10 stars. If there was a Nobel Prize for dentistry, Dr. Watson should win it--and many times over. If you're considering a dentist in the Farmington area--or beyond (I came from Durango)--Dr. Watson should be your choice. Beyond belief, you'll actually look forward going to the dentist. I'm forever grateful for Dr. Watson's skill, compassion, and kindness--and you will be too."

  • "If you want a dentist who truly cares about his patients, you must see Dr. Watson. He Has the latest technology in-house and it's amazing. For my last crown, Dr. Watson scanned my tooth with a laser and then a machine in the office milled my crown from porcelain to the scan. It was a perfect fit and that tooth hasn't felt so good in years. He was always asking if I needed a break, if I felt any discomfort to let him know immediately and so on. Can't say enough good things about him. Our entire family trusts Pinon Hills Dental with their dental Care!"

  • "The staff here are very friendly and accommodating. I was in a decent amount of pain so they moved my appointment up and kept me from hurting for an extra 5 days. Dr. Watson personally called me to check on me and make sure things we're ok. It means a lot that he didn't have an assistant or secretary make that call."

  • "Dr. Watson is absolutely incredible in every way! We have always been treated with the utmost respect, compassion and expertise. He has gone out of his way to treat our family in emergency situations. In each instant, he provided amazing and excellent care when other dentists could not. He is always positive and reassuring in all situations! His office staff, dental assistants and hygienists are incredible in every way! The atmosphere in the office is peaceful, positive and upbeat! We highly recommend Pinon Hills!!!"

  • "The politeness and care of the dentist, dental hygienist and the staff wowed me today. Dr. Watson and Dr. Weber really have a vested interest in your teeth. They are very concerned to the point that I brush and floss so I won't let them down.
    You never feel belittled by anyone in the office and they only encourage you when you need to do a little better. I used to worry about going to the dentist but now I know I have people who want the best for me in the doctors office."
