Dr. Martin was really great with my son. He started braces in the summer before 7th grade and had them off after about 18-20 months. The doc was really good about keeping me informed of time frames and treatment. Definitely recommend!

I'm an "older" patient in my late 40s. I had braces in my teens but over the years some teeth moved/became crooked again (didn't wear retainer long enough!). Dr. Martin was able to get me a great smile again!

My child's entire course of treatment has been a nightmare. Rude staff, terrible scheduling policies, they've screwed up filing of insurance more times than I can count. Actual treatment is passed off to staff who couldn't care less and who engaged in discussing their sex lives in front of my...more

Sevierville, TN I would like to begin by apologizing on behalf of our team. I appreciate you taking the time to do a survey to let us know how we are doing. I will certainly discuss your concerns with our team and with Dr. Martin. Though we strive to do our best, we obviously have fallen way short of the mark in this instance. If you would like to follow up with me personally, please don't hesitate to reach out 865 470-2005. I would definitely like to have the opportunity to correct things.
