Dr. Martinez was amazing with my 6 year old today. He had quite a bit of work done, and it couldn’t have gone better. We received several other opinions, Dr. Martinez’s treatment plan was substantially less money & less work. She went above and beyond answering all my questions, I cannot recommend her enough. She was able to do everything in one day in under an hour. (Extraction, pulpotomy, 2 fillings) Other dentists told me he would require IV sedation, but he did great with her using one medication I felt much better about. She is PALS certified, and showed me all their emergency equipment. Other dentists with 50+ reviews didn’t match what people were saying online once we were face to face. Dr. Martinez, on the other hand, is consistent with the glowing reviews I found on this site. Even though she is not advertised as necessarily holistic on some holistic dental sites, I find her to be exactly what we were looking for in the regard. Unfortunately, it seems like some dentists that advertise themselves as holistic have extremely aggressive & costly treatment plans. There are areas other dentists called decay that Dr. Martinez informed me were stains. She is conservative with X rays as well which is wonderful— she also uses digital which is great when you need them like we did. I left with a stack of business cards to give to anyone I can think of with kiddos needing a trustworthy dentist.
I've taken all four of my children to Dr. Martinez and I cannot say enough about her. She is the third pediatric dentist I've taken my kids to over the past seven years, and is BY FAR my favorite. I am so happy we found her.
We left our previous pediatric dentist, who had been treating my kids for almost seven years, because I was very unhappy with his bedside manner. He showed little to no understanding with my sensitive 8-year-old who has had a lot of dental work done. I don't need to go into all the details here, but our last experience was so bad that I knew I had to find someone else.
We went to Dr. Martinez without a personal recommendation, and it was finding a JEWEL. Not only is she extremely gentle and kind, she also gives so much of her precious time to each of my kids, making them feel comfortable, and she answers all my questions thoroughly and respectfully. She's genuine and knowledgeable and all my kids love her.
My 8-year-old is not nearly as anxious about dentist visits now, and her younger sisters are also a lot happier.
I also took my baby to her for a frenotomy. At 2.5 weeks, he was diagnosed with upper lip tie and posterior tongue tie by Dr. Martinez. She was really gentle and sweet with him, and told me everything I needed to know about the issue and aftercare. Later I took him back because I thought his tongue had reattached, and it had. She revised it again at no charge.
Another thing I LOVE about Dr. Martinez is that she is open to and encourages the use of homeopathic and natural remedies. She is conservative about X-rays but uses them when needed. Not only has she helped my children, but she's made ME feel so much better about their dental problems and what I can and can't do to prevent and improve tooth decay, etc.
