CARLSBAD, NM, May 12, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- New businesses continue to open in Carlsbad, New Mexico as the city, located in the southeastern corner of the state, maintains its leading status in growth. Cavern City Orthodontics, a practice run by Carlsbad native Dr. James R. Waters, recently opened its doors to serve the needs of the community.
Orthodontic care has been an area that has been lacking for residents in Carlsbad. With limited practices in the area being operated part time by out of town providers, Dr. Waters aims to fill this void and offer full-time, comprehensive care with his practice being operated by local staff.
"I'm a Carlsbad native who has been practicing in Austin, TX for the last twenty years. I sold my practices in Austin so my wife and I could return home to Carlsbad and bring everything that is good from a modern, big city practice but with small town service and a local vibe," said Dr. Waters. "Too long Carlsbad has endured part time 'corporate' doctors of all sorts that are spread thin over hundreds of miles and even different states. Doctors that sometimes haven't even finished a single case on their own. We wanted to create a local office with a more comprehensive philosophy and a small town feel that allows patients more confidence in their care and more comfort when communicating directly with office staff. At Cavern City Orthodontics, there are no out of town/state owners determining care or affecting decisions, no out of town financial departments to deal with and no automated answering services; instead there is only friendly direct communication with on-site staff and experienced, consistent Board certified quality care by the same experienced Orthodontist at each and every visit."
Growth in Carlsbad continues at a high rate. Already boasting the fastest growth in the state at 15.8% according to the most recent US Census numbers, Carlsbad has a number of new retail and restaurant businesses slated to open in 2022. Coupled with a balanced approach to industrial growth, area residents and leaders are primed for more.
In a recent study released by the financial consulting firm SmartAsset, Eddy County's (in which Carlsbad is seated) business growth ranked number one in New Mexico. The county's rank of 5.9% growth is nearly double any other county in the state. Additionally, the county also ranked first in incoming business investment at 58.3%.
"This growing community certainly welcomes the addition of high quality health care practitioners to the area," said Carlsbad Mayor Dale Janway. "We welcome Dr. Waters to our community and support him and all of our professionals. Dr. Waters has set up a beautiful location on Canal Street, and we know he'll be successful. I kept up with Dr. Waters during his school days, where he participated in sports, especially wrestling. He was an outstanding individual then, and we're glad to have him back."
The backbone for the county's growth is based on the industrial diversity within the economy. Potash mining, nuclear storage, oil and gas, and manufacturing are the main pillars associated with the major industrial base in the area. Strong growth within the medical and aviation fields bolster this base as well, and the Carlsbad Caverns National Park, the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens State Park, Sitting Bull Falls and other outdoor attractions make Carlsbad a true destination.
Dr. Waters and his staff look to continue the Carlsbad growth trend with the opening of his practice, located at 820 N. Canal Street. New patients are invited to reach out for a complimentary new patient appointment by calling (575) 885-2020.
Dr. Waters is fully Board certified and has treated over 10,000 patients successfully over his 25 year career as a sole practitioner in one of the most exclusive locations in America, treating families of professional sports figures, national politicians and public figures as well as working class families from all demographics. He sold his practice in Austin, Texas so he and his wife could come back home to Carlsbad. Dr. Waters was voted as one of the 'Top Orthodontist in Texas' every year from 2006 through 2020 in the US News and World Report, voted on by other doctors in Texas. He maintains a simple philosophy: Treat each and every patient as you would your own family. Period.
"Carlsbad residents deserve fulltime comprehensive providers with Board Certified experience. We hope to fill that void for Orthodontic care in Carlsbad by becoming your local go-to family orthodontic office (and maybe set a new precedent for other types of doctors to come to Carlsbad)," said Dr. Waters. "We offer braces for teens and adults, clear aligners for adults and we specialize in early interceptive treatment for kids aged 6 to 10. We accept most insurances, most forms of payment including Visa/MC and we offer sibling discounts. We also provide 0% financing for all cases to make braces affordable for every family."
Carlsbad and Eddy County are poised for the future growth positive outlook moving forward.
