Dr. Matthew Martin

He received his B.S. in biology from Indiana University at Bloomington in 1993 and his D.D.S. from Indiana University School of Dentistry in 1998 with a clinical rank of first in his class. He graduated from Butler University with his M.B.A. in 2012. Go Dawgs!

“Being able to provide a needed service and also make it as comfortable and enjoyable as possible is a challenge I look forward to everyday in the office. Steph and I believe that staying current with techniques and technology not only keeps us interested and informed, but provides a great benefit to our patients that put their trust in us."
He enjoys spending time with family, enjoying the outdoors, cycling, golf and cooking. Trying to perfect BBQ is his latest challenge. Dr. Matt is also a devoted Cubs and Sci-Fi fan (he is not afraid to admit to both). “Being a Cubs fan really helps me prepare for the future…there is always next year!”
"Going to the dentist has never been my favorite thing to do, but since I have been going to Martin Dentistry my opinion has changed. The staff is courteous and accomodating and the doctors are kind and informative. I have not missed an appointment in 2 years. C. Denny"
"Martin Dentistry easily rates 5 stars. While I don't have a fear of going to the dentist, I really don't like when dentists and hygenists only use water piks for cleanings because I have sensitivity to cold water...and being sprayed in the face. Martin Dentistry listens to me and performs my cleanings the 'old fashioned' way, which is more comfortable for me. Everyone is friendly and my experience here has always been positive. My appointment times are honored and I appreciate getting a new toothbrush with each visit. Just a few blocks from my home in Broad Ripple, I like having a neighborhood dentist. Highly recommended."
"Changed from previous dentist to Martin Dentistry due to close proximity to new home. I will say that I don't like to switch dentist/doctors because I want them to 'know' who I am and know my history. Upon my first visit I would have to say that Martin Dentistry is GREAT!! Arrived a few minutes prior to appointment time and the hygienist took me back right away. Hygienist was very friendly, nice, informative and conversational but not overtly chatty. Did a great job cleaning my teeth and informing me of what she was doing each step of the way. The dentist, Matthew Martin was very upbeat, genuine, positive, smiley and friendly. I feel he did a great job checking over my oral heath and reviewing my X-rays and teeth. Seems to be very knowledgeable and informative to what he is viewing/doing. Overall, great experience. Would like if they had the newer X-ray machine that goes all around your head verses having to take about 20 slides... ended up having a couple cuts in my mouth from all of these."
"Love both Stephanie and Matt! They are both great, technically and professionally. Stephanie is my regular dentist, but I have gone to Matt occasionally when I needed a quick fix for a problem. I also like the staff and how the office is run. Very efficient and friendly practice. Definitely take advantage of the reminder service which sends you an email reminder and a way to confirm your appointment electronically. It makes it much easier to remember the appointment and very convenient to confirm. You can even add the appointment to your electronic calendar and request directions to the office right from the email reminder. I don't give out 5 star ratings easily, but I highly recommend the Martin's!"
"I am a total chicken when it comes to a doctor or dentist, My health has been going down hill for the last few years because of broken teeth and I would not go to have them fixed till it was too late. Well this morning Friday the 13th I saw past my fears and called Martin Dentistry around 10:00 am and they had me come in at 12:30. The 2 teeth were killing me and had to come out because they were infected and broken. They are so kind and caring there and had them out fast. I have never used this dentist before today but now they have another patient for life. I love you guys for what you did for me Dan Henderson"
