Katrina Lueras-Collins, Dentist

Katrina Lueras-Collins, DDS was born in Texas and raised mainly in Carlsbad and Santa Rosa, NM. After graduating from Santa Rosa High School, Dr. Katrina then attended New Mexico Highlands University where she studied Biology. She continued her education at Creighton University in Omaha, NE where she continued to study biology and earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery in 2006. While away from the office, Dr. Katrina enjoys spending time with her four boys, hunting, skiing, running and working out.

While in dental school both Drs. Ray and Katrina volunteered at One World Clinic at Creighton University where they donated as much treatment as could be done for two hours every Thursday for indigent patients. The Collins doctors returned to New Mexico in early 2006 after graduation. They worked at Divine Dental and The Mora Valley Health Clinic until August of 2007 when they opened their office in Santa Rosa named Deep Blue Dental. Then in August of 2008, Collins Dental was opened here in Las Vegas. They have commuted back and forth to service both communities since then.

Both Drs. Ray and Katrina are active in volunteering with the New Mexico Mission of Mercy (NM MOM) program. This event is held at least once a year in various parts of New Mexico and is designated to provide free dental care for the residents of New Mexico. The staff here at Collins Dental also volunteer at these events. Along with volunteering for NM MOM, the doctors also donate to donated dental services where they treat two patients in total per year with any treatment including cleanings, fillings, crowns, extractions, partials, and dentures.
