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

Sincerely,
Jeff Martin DDS
William Taylor DDS

Dentists Share 3 Benefits of Getting a Second Opinion

Erasing Doubts

Amber just wasn’t sure. Her dentist had recommended she have extensive dental work done. She trusts her dentist, but with something this involved, she knew she would feel better if she could get another dentist’s opinion. What is her next step? Who should she see? Will it “hurt” her dentist’s feelings if she gets a second opinion? Searching out a second opinion is a valuable step when we’re facing any big decision. Getting more than one perspective and gathering as much information as we can in order to make the right choice can really make the decision-making process less nerve-racking. … Continue reading

What is Nitrous Oxide?

what is nitrous oxide in Tucson AZ area

Abigale caught a glimpse of her 5 year old son Kevin in the backseat as they drove to the dentist. How on earth were they going to make it through this appointment? Kevin never stopped moving! Abigale had visions of herself and three dental assistants holding Kevin down just so the dentist could look at his teeth. But Abigale trusted her neighbor who recommended she take Kevin to Drs. Martin and Taylor. “They have a magic potion, I tell you! If it worked for my daughter Emily, it’ll work for Kevin! They call it laughing gas, but I was the … Continue reading

Local Dentist Travels to Brazil to Help Orphans

Doctor Martin and Kathy

While traveling by bus in Brazil, Dr. Jeff Martin experienced something almost bizarre by American standards. He and his wife were the last people to board a crowded bus.  A young college girl stood to offer her seat, not to Mrs. Martin but to Dr. Martin! He was embarrassed, and tried to explain he looks older than he is, but she kept insisting he take her seat. He later learned that it is common in the Brazilian culture for older men to be treated with this type of respect and deference. This was only one of the dissimilarities they would encounter on … Continue reading

Fluoride-Nature’s Tooth Protection

fluoride natures tooth protection in Tucson AZ area

Are you feeling a tad overwhelmed about how many things suddenly seem bad for you? Some things make sense, like over processed food. It seems reasonable that the closer things are to their natural state, the better they would be for us. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that at optimum levels, has been overwhelmingly proven to prevent tooth decay. So why all the recent concern over fluoride? For the same reason many public scares get more press than they warrant– lack of accurate information! What is Fluoride and What Does it Do? As we mentioned, fluoride is a mineral … Continue reading

Flossing Daily? Read This, and Chances Are You’ll Never Forget Again!

Tooth floss

We all know the moment… that moment of panic when our dental hygienist at Martin Taylor Dentistry asks us if we’ve been flossing. Even though we’re generally honest people, this is one time in our lives we may be tempted to tell a big fat lie. “I try,” we respond meekly. No need to tell her the only time we can remember flossing in the past few days was 10 minutes before this appointment. Yet we all know she can tell we’re fibbing! Especially when it takes her 3 hours and a jack hammer to clean the cement-like plaque off … Continue reading

Sterile Equipment: How to Be Sure Your Dental Office is Safe

Sterile Dental Tools Carol was usually not much of a worrier. However, after seeing on the news that thousands of patients seen by the same Tulsa dentist had to be tested for disease due to the unsanitary conditions found in his office, she felt a tad uneasy about her upcoming dental check up. She believed the news report that most dental practices adhere to a strict regimen of sanitizing equipment, but she also knew she’d feel better if she knew for certain her dentist’s office was one of them! She decided to ask about the sterilization procedures used by her … Continue reading

Dr. Martin and Dr. Taylor are Dentists with Specialized Skills

Doctor Martin and doctor Taylor smiling

Jane noticed a growing trend when visiting her family physician. She was being farmed out to a different specialist for each part of her body. Currently she was being seen by a hand specialist for her carpel tunnel, an ear, nose and throat doctor for a persistent ear infection, a dermatologist for skin cancer checks, a neurologist for sleep apnea, and of course her gynecologist. She joked to her husband that their medical insurance should cover gas mileage! When Jane learned from her dentist she needed to have a tooth extracted, a dental implant, and a crown, she was prepared to … Continue reading

Dr. Martin Helps the Homeless

Office of the governor certificate

In April 2013, Jeff Martin, D.D.S. received the prestigious “Certificate of Recognition” from the Governor of Arizona.  You would think an award like this must have a back story and you would be right. A number of years ago Dr. Martin, a Tucson dentist, became aware that the Gospel Rescue Mission needed someone to help with dentistry. Although it was already part of his nature to do what he can to help others, Dr. Jeff Martin knew he couldn’t ignore this particular request. This one came straight from the top. That’s right – it came from his wife. Dentist Needed: Wife of Tucson Dentist Sent … Continue reading

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.
