What did you want to be when you were growing up? An astronaut? A ballerina? A fireman? Amazingly, by about 3rd or 4th grade, Dr. Jeff Martin knew he wanted to be a dentist. His interest was sparked largely because he really liked his own childhood dentist, Dr. Rooney.

Dr. Martin describes his childhood as a happy one. Although his biological father left when he was very young, Jeff’s mom remarried a wonderful man with two daughters of his own. Roger Martin adopted Jeff and his sister when Jeff was about 6 years old, and is the man Jeff Martin calls Dad. Some of his favorite memories are the car trips his family, including the two family dogs, took all over the United States.

Growing up, Jeff was a good student. Education was a strongly held value in his family. Jeff also believes the small class sizes in his grammar school practically provided him with a private education.

Doctor Martin talking to patient

Jeff Martin was also an avid athlete. Because there was no high school in Inspiration, he had to attend high school in Miami, AZ where he played baseball, was the football quarterback, and ran track. He was also an Eagle Scout and he loved to hike and camp.

After high school Dr. Martin attended the University of Arizona where he obtained his bachelor’s degree in biology and met his lovely wife, Kathy. He then attended dental school at Baylor University in Texas, the same school his mentor Dr. Rooney had attended. While in dental school, Dr. Martin also moonlighted as a phlebotomist.

After completing school, Jeff and Kathy Martin returned to Tucson where Dr. Martin began his practice in 1978. They have two daughters, Kasey and Holly. Their daughters are now married  and Jeff and Kathy have 5 grandchildren. All of their children and grandchildren live nearby, so the Martins get to spend a lot of time with their family which is so important to them. In fact, their daughter Kasey married Will Taylor, who is now Dr. Martin’s partner!

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.
