Ed Martinez, DDS, MS
A passion for improving the lives of others.
“My father, a dentist and endodontist, always advised me to go into a career in which I would be doing something I really enjoyed. I knew I wanted to help others and that I was good with my hands. That’s when I decided to follow in my father’s footsteps and make a positive difference in people’s lives as a dental specialist.
“I chose to go into prosthodontics because it was a great fit. My goal is to improve people’s oral health, appearance, self-esteem and quality of life. In that quest, prosthodontic training and experience have provided me the advanced capabilities to meet any dental challenge with the utmost precision.”

Skilled, experienced and dedicated to optimal care.
“The extra years of dental training I received, combined with more than 15 years of experience, have given me the ability to approach each individual’s smile with the same attention to detail and commitment I would give to my own family. I look at the mouth as a whole, and I take a comprehensive view of the challenge and a multifaceted approach to providing the very best solution.
“This is, for me, the best approach. What is going on and how can it best be fixed? I’m thankful to have the knowledge and experience to recognize details and problems that are the key to solving complex cases with true harmony between function and aesthetics. Because this is my purpose… and the reason I put so much thought, compassion and commitment into doing what’s best for each case.”
