Dear valued patients,

At Martin-Taylor Dentistry our #1 priority is your health and safety. Currently, we are available to treat your emergency dental needs. One of the important reasons we are doing so is to reduce the burden that dental emergencies would place on hospital emergency departments, if we were not available. We want to assure you that our office at Martin-Taylor Dentistry is a safe, clean environment to get the necessary treatment. We not only meet all requirements, but we exceed them, for your safety and ours. Delaying treatment of infection or pain can lead to more serious issues that may become more complicated to treat and can compromise your overall health, not just the health of your mouth.

At our office, we are thoroughly screening all calls and patients to maintain a safe environment. Patients are easily able to maintain social distancing. All rooms are wiped down before and after treating patients and the Dentist and the Martin-Taylor Dentistry Team always wear proper gear for their protection and yours.

We take extraordinary measures to ensure the safety and well-being of all our patients. We adhere to strict medical hygiene policy, including thoroughly disinfecting all common areas and surfaces (bathrooms, lobby and chairs, counters, door handles, etc…).

Our office is clean, safe and ready to treat any dental emergencies during these times. We look forward to reopening to a regular schedule as soon as it is appropriate to do so. In the meantime please do not to hesitate to call us with any questions (520) 747-9024

Dr. Jeff Martin and Dr. Will Taylor

What were you doing in 1999? Preparing for Y2K? Partying with Prince? If you were Dr. Jeff Martin, you were doubling the size of your dental office, buying a clinic, volunteering in your community and raising a family!  Never one to miss an opportunity to help more people, Dr. Martin was quite busy in 1999. But he didn’t start out that way; much more humble beginnings provided the strong, solid foundation on which Dr. Martin built the dental practice you see today.

Humble beginnings

As a fresh graduate from Baylor University dental school, Dr. Martin first hung out his shingle in Tucson in 1978 when he leased space from another dentist. Because he was sharing space, he could only work during the hours of 3:30 pm till 9:30 pm. He continued those crazy hours for two years, working hard to build up his fledgling practice. And just like a new colt on spindly legs, things seemed a little shaky at first. Even when he moved to his current location two years later, most of his patients were his relatives! Back then he was pretty much a one man show. With 1000 square feet, 2 chairs, and no hygienist, Dr. Martin did all the cleanings and dental work himself. But word about this remarkably talented and personable dentist spread.

Making a name for himself

Dr. Martin spent as much time as he could introducing himself to the dental community of Tucson.  The young dentist also discovered that his dental supply providers were a great resource in connecting him with dentists ready to retire.  He made such an excellent impression on one older dentist, Dr. Martin was offered the opportunity to buy his practice in 1981. It wasn’t a huge practice, but it was a start.  Eventually he was able to hire a hygienist a couple of days a week. According to Arizona state law, dentists couldn’t advertise back then. A dental practice was built solely by word of mouth referrals based on the skill of the dentist, not the flashiness of their ad campaign.

The practice grew… and grew… and grew…

Word of Dr. Martin continued to spread throughout Tucson.  As new patients came to his office, Dr. Martin realized his little 1000 square foot office was bursting at the seams. So in 1999, he leased an additional 1000 square feet in the office complex and set out to totally update and refurbish the office. He knocked out a wall and rebuilt the whole office, adding four more chairs. As mentioned, it was during this time Dr. Martin had also invested in a 14-chair clinic in Tucson. The experience he gained interviewing, hiring and supervising numerous dentists for the clinic, provided him the unique ability to see a stellar dentist when one crossed his path.

And then there were two…

That young dentist happened to be his son-in-law, Dr. Will Taylor. Dr. Taylor joined the practice in 2008. Dr. Martin says that aside from the fact that Will Taylor married his daughter, Will was the brightest, most hard-working and talented young dentist he had ever seen. Both men have found their styles, skills and personalities to be a perfect blend which provides their patients with the very best care. They also really like each other which makes for a terrific work environment not only for themselves but also for their staff and patients. Over the years Drs. Martin and Taylor have continued to invest in the newest technology which allows them to offer more services than many other general dentists.

Down the road…

Many of the folks seen at Martin Taylor Dentistry are 2nd and 3rd generation patients of the practice! Some of the staff have been with Dr. Martin for 25 years. These facts point to a business with a firm foundation and a solid future. The dental practice of Martin Taylor has a rich and long history and it looks like they’ll continue to serve Tucson for many years to come!

Dr. Taylor, Dr. Martin, and their entire staff are the very best. The front desk staff, the dental assistants, and dental hygienists are excellent. I’ve been to many dentists over the years, and they are the most skilled and professional group of people that I have encountered. You can be confident you will be fully informed about what is recommended for a treatment plan and what it will cost. I’ve had the gamut of dental procedures — crowns, implants, root canals, and more routine care. It’s been made as pleasant and comfortable as possible by their skill, as well as their kindness and understanding. I wholeheartedly recommend Martin and Taylor Dentistry.

I have been a patient of Dr. Taylor’s for most of my adult hood. I have had everything done from a filling to multiple dental implants. All of my procedures have been straightforward with zero complications and as little discomfort as possible. Even after my implants I had minimal pain! Before I saw Dr. Taylor I was terrified of dentists, but he put me at ease with his expertise. The hygienists are kind, thorough but gentle, and knowledgeable. The office staff is very friendly and helpful. The office itself is modern and impeccably clean. I highly recommend Martin Tayler dentistry and won’t trust my teeth to any other dentists.
