Get To Know Dr. Walter G. Martin, DDS

A Winston-Salem, North Carolina native, Dr. Walter G. Martin was raised as the youngest of two sons in his family. Growing up, he developed a keen interest in sciences and math and always knew he wanted to pursue a career in the medical field but was totally unsure as to what it would be.


His motivation to enter the field was fuelled by his experiences while shadowing at a family friend’s dental practice during his High School years. He absolutely loved the idea of being able to help others by using science and creativity as well as developing life-long interactions with patients while making significant improvements in people’s lives. With encouragement from his mentor, family, and friends, he went on to pursue an undergraduate degree in Chemistry from Hampton University and later attended dental school at the University Of Maryland School Of Dentistry.


During his school years, he was actively involved with the Student National Dental Association chapter at Maryland and served as a student member of the school’s Admissions Committee. Upon graduation, he landed his first job as a general resident in the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Over his professional career, Dr. Martin has had the experience and ability to perform a wide variety of treatments among them implants surgery & restorations with a high success rate.


The most rewarding part of his dental practice is making a difference in people’s lives and helping them achieve and maintain optimum dental health. On the downside, he dislikes the reputation dentistry has, as patients are fearful about seeing dentists which often results in anxiety of dental appointments. He particularly enjoys dealing with the challenge of helping individuals who are too scared to go to the dentist due to their tough dental experiences in the past, seeing that it’s possible to receive a dignified treatment without all the pain; providing utmost care and compassion so their fear is eliminated is amongst his top priorities.


Outside of the office, Dr. Martin loves to spend time with his beautiful wife and adorable son doing fun things like taking walks or watching movies for the most part. He also enjoys playing basketball and golf and looks forward to watching his favorite football team; the Carolina Panthers play. He takes the time to explore the world and occasionally goes to Jamaica; his honeymoon location and favorite vacation destination. Other than that, he truly enjoys reading dental literature & biographies in his quiet time, grabbing some crab legs (his favorite), listening to music or dancing considering he was part of a step team back in his college days.


With a strong sense of loyalty and devotion towards his family, Dr. Martin prides in being a great dad and husband. He loves humor, laughs at himself all the time and believes in laughter as a good medicine. He insists that individuals should learn not to take life too seriously but instead use laughter to deal with life’s uncertainties. Dr. Martin feels very blessed to have a profession that allows him to stay active within his community as he is often engaged in volunteer work for the Mission of Mercy.
