Meet the Doctors
Dr. Bill feels he has never just “gone to work.” He loves the opportunity to truly make a difference in the lives of his patients.
Dr. Bill grew up in Gainesville and graduated from the University of Florida College of Dentistry. He completed his orthodontic residency at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Bill was the founder of Martin Orthodontics in Jonesville, Lake City and Chiefland. He and his sister Dr. Celia Martin have been creating beautiful smiles for more than 30 years. Dr. Bill is passionate about learning new things that can help him be more effective in giving his patients beautiful smiles and the kind of confidence that helps them succeed in life. Because of this, Dr. Bill belongs to several study groups and attends conferences regularly to continue his education in orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, sleep disorders and anything else that affects his patients’ health.
Dr. Bill also thoroughly enjoys teaching as an adjunct professor at the University of Florida College of Dentistry. His love of teaching extends to the office, where he takes the time to educate his patients and their families to work with them closely on making a custom-fit treatment plan to meet their unique needs.
Medical care runs in the Martin Family: Dr. Bill’s wife, Dr. Judy Banks, is a pediatrician. His two sons, Dave and Paul, are dental students at the UF College of Dentistry. And, of course, his sister, Dr. Celia Martin, is an orthodontist whom he’s worked with for years.
Outside of the office, Dr. Bill loves spending time with his family and their Dog Shorty. Dr. Bill trained Shorty and he is a registered Therapy Dog, so you might even have a chance to meet him at the office! Dr. Martin also volunteers at charity dental clinics with his sons. The family has started a dental mission in Ambato, Ecuador, taking UF dental students with them and combining their talents to serve those who are less fortunate.
