Extensive Experience

Since 1979, our team has helped thousands of patients in the North Florida area transform their smiles. While working on his breakthroughs with airway orthodontics and his focus on “peak performance” for his patients, Dr. Bill Martin came to realize his passion for the development of children and setting them on a path to the best versions of themselves, or “peak performance”. Since then, he has incorporated children’s dentistry into the office here in Jonesville and the Gainesville area. Our outstanding doctors are committed to professional improvement and are constantly seeking new technology and continuing education in their field. No matter what your condition may be, our doctors have likely helped a similar patient in their many years of experience. We are happy to show you before-and-after pictures to provide examples of their exceptional results!

Advanced Technology

Martin Kids Dental is proud to bring cutting-edge technology to our practices. We are one of the only groups in North Florida to offer 3D imaging, and Martin Kids Dental was the first children’s dental office in the United States to have the state-of-the-art, low-radiation iCat FLX technology for digital x-rays.

This modern machinery lets us provide you with instantaneous, detailed, and clear images of your child’s teeth and jaw. This, in turn, allows our team to design the most effective treatment possible. Our iCat FLX is also the only low dosage machine in North Florida. At Martin Kids Dental, we value your child’s safety and health over all else.

Additionally, we use other technology such as the Trios 3Shape digital scanner and the Nomad digital x-ray. With this cutting-edge technology, we are able to take the most precise images possible and avoid the old, uncomfortable, gooey tray molds to provide you with the most accurate treatment available.
