Caring for Our Community & the World
Our Passion at Martin Kids Dental Is Helping Others, One Smile at a Time
We are so grateful to our patients for your generous support and patronage of Martin Kids Dental over the past 35+ years. Because you continue to choose us as your children’s dentistry and orthodontic office of choice, you provide us with the opportunity to give back to our community and beyond in numerous ways.
We are proud to share our knowledge, skills, and resources in our local community through our own outreach efforts as well as through donations to a variety of local charities. We also seek to extend our resources throughout the world by participating in mission work. Keep reading to learn more!
Martin Kids Dental Loves to Serve Our Local Community
We view our community as our extended family, so we do what we can to support the wonderful people in the greater Gainesville area through our charity outreach efforts. Examples of local charities that we have supported include…
- Touch a Truck
- Operation Santa
- Gainesville Fine Arts (GFAA)
- Dental Health Month
- Pre-School Palooza
- Boo at the Zoo
We are proud to have been instrumental in helping the Southwest Advocacy Group (SWAG) in their efforts to establish a medical & dental clinic in the southwest part of Gainesville, FL. Our donation of dental equipment has allowed SWAG to provide quality dental care to local families who could not otherwise afford it.
Martin Kids Dental’s recent donation also allowed Williston Middle High School to provide its champion baseball team with proper exercise equipment. You can read more about our donation here.
Our dental team cares deeply about teaching children to care for their teeth, too! Each year during Children’s Dental Health Month, we visit Gainesville’s local schools on an educational mission. Through a series of visits throughout the month, we give free toothbrushes and teach proper dental hygiene and eating habits to over 2,500 kids.

Our Dental & Orthodontic Team Works to Spread Smiles Throughout the World
In addition to our local outreach, our Martin Kids Dental team also strives to share quality dental care with under-served communities throughout the world. Through our partnership with the Ecuadorian Rotary Clubs, we participate in annual mission work that allows our Martin Kids Dental doctors and students from the University of Florida College of Dentistry to travel to the remote mountain region of the Andes of Ecuador. Since 2009, we have had the opportunity to treat 500-700 children and adults each year in Ecuador, and we plan to continue our mission trips for many years to come!
