Our Team

Dr Gunning, DDS

Dr. Nate Gunning’s passion to serve others has only grown since he joined the Eastern Family Dentistry team. Dr. Gunning grew up in Mesa, Arizona where he attended Arizona State University and earned a Bachelor degree in Business Management. After completing hundreds of hours of volunteer work in the community, he decided to pursue his dream of becoming a dentist. He then attended the University of Colorado and earned his Doctorate in Dental Surgery. Dr. Gunning and his wife welcomed their first child this last year, a beautiful baby girl! Dr. Gunning loves to spend his extra time being active outdoors. He enjoys hiking, snowboarding, volleyball, and wakeboarding. After moving to eastern New Mexico with his wife, Dr. Gunning quickly fell in love with the community and was grateful for the welcomed arrival. One aspect in the dental field that he enjoys is developing a positive relationship with his patients and staff. His number one goal is to create a relaxed environment for his patients so they can feel comfortable while working towards that perfect smile.

Hi my name is Lissette Ramirez; I’ve been married to Victor Ramirez for 16 years. We have a beautiful daughter named Jazlyn who is the biggest blessing in our lives. I enjoy spending my free time with my family and friends, doing some photography, and playing softball. I’ve been in the Dentistry industry for a few years now. I really enjoy this industry, and wouldn’t change it for any other career. Working at Eastern Family Dentistry is great! I get to interact with every patient that walks through the door, make them feel welcome to our family, and see them walk out with a smile.
