Dr. Valerie Martins is a board-certified periodontist specializing in dental implants, gum disease treatment, and tooth extractions (including wisdom teeth). In addition to periodontal treatments to improve gum and bone health, Dr. Martins also provides options for single, multiple, or full-mouth tooth replacement using dental implants.
Dr. Martins discovered her career path as a teenager while working in the dental office of a family friend, where she was struck by the close relationships between dentists, staff, and patients. Today, creating close relationships with others is the foundation of her philosophy of care.
“I believe that a positive dental experience for most patients starts with building trust and a good rapport with their doctor, starting at the first appointment,” Dr. Martins says.
During each of your visits, you can expect to be treated with respect and kindness; Dr. Martins is dedicated to making each appointment as calm and stress-free as possible. She will take her time to listen, understand, and explore your unique concerns and conditions. Questions are always encouraged as part of the conversation. Dr. Martins’ ability to clearly discuss your dental health and treatment options will enable you to make confident, informed decisions about your oral health.
Dr. Martins and her husband Derrick have two children, Lauren and Andrew. In her free time, Dr. Martins enjoys spending time with her family at the beach, attending concerts and sporting events, and traveling.
