About Dr. Martinez

Hi, I’m Dr. Tamara Martinez; I am a board-certified Dentist with a passion for Cosmetic Dentistry, Family Dentistry, Reconstructive Dentistry and more!

I am originally from Colombia S.A. Life there is not as busy as it is here which has its own pros and cons. I was blessed by being able to go to dental school at one of the top schools in the country, Valle University, which ranked No. 1 at the time. I came to the US soon after turning thirty. In the US, I was accepted to dental school at the University of Southern California USC, one of the best dental schools in the US, always ranking on top. GO TROJANS!!! FIGHT ON!!!, where I graduated summer of 2006. A valuable philosophy I learned from my time there was, that people in Hollywood and L.A. in general, have come to expect not only a functional smile but a beautiful one as well (the Hollywood Smile). Nowadays smile design is not reserved for the Hollywood crowd alone and I am very proud to be able to offer that to my patients here in So Flo.

I have been practicing dentistry since 1996; I worked as an associate for a large Corporate Dental Services Organization for over 12 years, but something was missing. I wanted more interaction with my patients, getting to know them and really listening to their needs, not just the 20 minutes allotted per patient. Hence, I started to work for other private offices in town and it felt more natural and more like me; nonetheless, I still wanted a practice where I could treat my patients with all the care and love I always give and that people would just love to go, without fear, without anxiety and looking forward to "going to the dentist". I am happy to share with all, I am in that practice now.

My husband and I could have settled somewhere else in the US, as I am licensed to work in other states. However, we love South Florida and what it has to offer, the culinary variety, the cultural diversity, our sports teams, the beach, the everglades, the Florida Keys, the ability to quickly travel to and from here to Europe, South America, the Caribbean there is so much to enjoy here and we could not see ourselves living anywhere else.

Now, there is something more about me that I’d like to share and it is that I love what I do. First, I very much care for the well-being of my patients; and second I am a nerd when it comes to dentistry, I cannot get enough of it. I constantly continue to grow as a professional. To me Dentistry is a mixture of Science, Art and Technology hence I keep up with the latest developments, latest techniques and materials in dentistry. I love the implementation of new technologies and what can be accomplished with them; but what I enjoy the most is when I see the changes I have made in my patients' lives when they are able to smile with confidence and when they are able to chew their food evenly and without discomfort. That is without a doubt the most rewarding feeling. It would be my pleasure to meet you and have the opportunity to exceed your expectations.

I welcome you to call today to make an appointment!

"I overcame my dentist's fear in one visit! I came from out of town with some concerns about my oral health (I found her from reviews), and Dr. Martinez examined my mouth and not only understood my concerns but made a plan on how to get back to myself. She explained the entire process from start to finish and did not make me feel nervous once! I felt ZERO pain- and she was focused on her work, but also very friendly, funny, and calming. You can tell from the entire experience and staff that they truly value you and care for you. Dr. Martinez also really cares about your health and recovery, and is not quick to rush you out of the room like other dentists. She will ensure all of your questions are answered, and you are left feeling confident in her care, knowing you will be back and healthy again. Really, she is an outstanding doctor, and I thank God for her. "

" ??? January 07, 2021 Ref: Service Provided by Dr. Tamara Martinez D.D.S of MYDDS My name is M. Francis and I wanted to share my experience that I had with Dr. Tamara Martinez D.D.S of MYDDS. I had a tooth that was part of a bridge I've had for years that needed to be removed. I've had bad experiences in the past with some dentists who were very heavy handed when providing cleanings, extractions and my last experience prior of seeing Dr. Tamara Martinez where a dentist broke my tooth so you can imagine my fear factor and level of uneasiness I had when it came to dental work of ANY KIND. I told my girlfriend that I needed to find a dentist that was not just good but light handed when it came to working in my mouth. My girlfriend told me that she had the right person for me. I grilled her and asked her how did she know her, did this dentist ever do dental work on her, was she light handed, etc. etc. My girlfriend simply told me that she had worked with this dentist in the past for ...
many years and she was an amazing dentist with ALL the qualities that I was looking for but most importantly she told me she was a perfectionist and that I would love her. I scheduled an appointment with her and thereafter I received a deep cleaning, a tooth extraction and a implant where the tooth was initially removed. I was "BLOWN AWAY" because I felt absolutely "NO PAIN" from any of the above mentioned services and the work she did was stellar. I told my girlfriend of my experience and showed her the work that Dr. T. Martinez did and she said "I told you she was amazing". This Dr. explained everything to me that I needed to know about the work that was going to be done and all that was required to give me a beautiful smile and all I can say is THANK YOU and I can't be any happier and satisfied with this Dr. and the work she did. In closing, if you had the past experiences and concerns I had regarding dental work do yourself a "huge" favor and look no further, go see Dr. Martinez D.D.S of MYDDS you won't regret it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Dr. Martinez’s bright personality made me feel welcomed and relaxed during my stay, you can tell she enjoys her work. She makes sure to thoroughly explain what she’s doing, why she’s doing it and all the while cracking a few jokes here and there to lighten the mood. This is the most technologically advanced dental office I have been in, equipped with a 3D x-ray machine and 3D printer, they have the best science can offer to treat their patients. The office has an elegant and inviting atmosphere, the staff are professional, Dr. Martinez is delicate and passionate about her job, and I am glad to have found MYDDS."
