“The staff is super nice and competent. Dr. Martinez is a solid guy and a great dentist. First dentist I’ve been happy with in 17-18yrs. Great job staff! Clear down to the people working up front, everyone is super professional.”
“Staff is friendly and polite. Dentist and hygienist explain everything that they are doing. Make sure you are comfortable and numb before doing a procedure.”
“What a great experience at Martinez Dentistry! As someone with slight dental anxiety who put off seeing a dentist for too long, Dr. Martinez put me at ease. He and his staff helped me with a simple treatment plan and worked with me on a payment schedule. I've now finished with my root canal/crown, fillings and 4 wisdom teeth extractions and I'm happy to say each procedure was quick and painless. I can't thank them enough for the great care and helping me get over my anxiety!”
Excellent dentistry doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Our dental office accepts many popular dental insurance plans and knows how to maximize their benefits. And, if you don’t have coverage, we make it easy to sign up for low-to-no interest financing right through our website.
Most people have a few questions before they come to see us, and we’re always willing to take the time to answer them. Below, we’ve gone ahead and responded to some of the most popular ones we hear every day. But, if there is something you would like to ask that we haven’t covered here, you are always welcome to give our team a call!
The fastest way to get emergency dental care is to contact a nearby dentist and schedule an appointment. Urgent care clinics typically aren’t able to handle dental problems (beyond providing pain medication), and the same goes for the ER. When it comes to getting out of pain and fixing the problem, your best bet is to always reach out to a dentist first. Most of the time, they’ll be able to see you the same day as your call.
Choosing the right dental office for you should be based on a few factors. Firstly, is the dental office a reasonable distance from your home? You should also look at a dentist’s website to see if they cater to patients like you (an adult wouldn’t want to visit a pediatric dental office!). If you have dental insurance, try to determine if the dental office will accept it or offers financing for larger procedures. It’s also worth your time to read some patient reviews, so you can see what people have personally experienced at the dental office.
In order to become a dentist, a person must first complete a four-year degree at an accredited college, and then they need to go through dental school (which typically takes another three to four years). After this, they go through a residency program, and then, they are allowed to practice on their own. Usually, dentists will continue to complete training and education courses to refine their skills well after they have finished their initial schooling.
It’s important to note that any dentist can claim to be a cosmetic dentist even if they don’t have a lot of experience providing aesthetically-focused dentistry. That’s because cosmetic dentistry is not a recognized specialty like orthodontics or pediatrics that requires additional certifications. When looking for a dentist, go through their bio and see if they are a part of any organizations that offer cosmetic dentistry training, like the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. You should also see if they have any “Before & After” pictures of patients on their site. And, reading reviews, particularly ones that talk about procedures like porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, and BOTOX®, will give you insight into the quality of their work as well.
