I was born and raised here in the Rio Grande Valley and I am proud to have the opportunity to provide quality dental and orthodontic services to the community that helped shape me into the person I am today. I strive to provide my patients with the most comfortable and efficient treatment possible and I will always treat you with kindness, integrity, and respect.
Whether you are a general dentistry patient, orthodontic patient, or both, you are my patient and I want you to have total confidence that I will take care of you no matter what. It is a philosophy of mine that your oral health and smile is always at their best.
Thank you for considering us as your dental treatment provider. I am humbly grateful for your trust in my services and I assure you I will do all I can to ensure you have a more beautiful smile for the rest of your life.
Education and Continuing Education
I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery at Meharry Medical College School of Medicine, which provided me with a strong foundation of knowledge and experience. I earned my orthodontic certificate from the International Association for Orthodontics.
Now, as a practicing orthodontist, attending continuing education seminars informs me of the latest technological advances in methodologies and materials used when treating patients. It grants me the opportunity to listen to lectures discussing the latest evidence-based dentistry and demonstrate highly effective techniques in delivering treatment. Actively participating in CE throughout a career helps me ensure integrity and a quality result above the standard of care for my patient.

In the Community
I am a dentist who places importance on community and family. My family and I have a history of giving our time, energy and resources to organizations that extend beyond dental and orthodontic care. I am a Partner in Excellence to elementary schools and sponsor students who have desires of going to dental school or pursuing higher education.
Outside the Office
I live in McAllen, TX, with my wife Gigi and our three children: Christian Andres, Isabella Sofia, and Natalia Andrea Martinez. I enjoy spending my free time with my three young children and especially my wife. We enjoy outings to community events, cooking, and traveling together. It is also not unusual to find me listening to and even playing music. My passion in life is to constantly challenge myself to become a better clinician, husband, and father through practice.
