Dr. Valerie Martins

Founding Martins Dental Partners allowed Dr. Valerie Martins, a board-certified periodontist, to fulfill her dream of a full-service dental practice focused on delivering an incredible patient experience. Dr. Martins discovered her love of dentistry as a teenager while working in the dental office of a family friend. She was fascinated by the close relationships she saw between dentists, staff members, and patients. That led her to obtain her Doctor of Dental Medicine from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine after getting a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Brandeis University.

Creating close, respectful relationships with her team and patients is the foundation of her philosophy and what drives her professionally. She feels it’s important to build trust and a good rapport with her patients, starting at their first appointments. During each visit to Martins Dental Partners, you’ll be treated with respect and kindness.

Dr. Martins is dedicated to making each appointment as calm and stress-free as possible. She takes 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.
