At Walnut Avenue Dentistry the health and well-being of our patients, employees, and our community is our Top Priority. We understand the concern and uncertainty you may be experiencing surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and we are committed to being responsive to the needs of our patients as the situation evolves.
During the reminder texts to patients, we will ask all patients to fill out a wellness form, before coming into the practice, to ensure the good health of all patients visiting us. The form simply asks about any symptoms you are having- cough, fever, shortness of breath, or contact with anyone with
Covod-19 in the last 7 days. Patients having any symptoms will be asked to reschedule with us at a later date.

"As always, my experience was wonderful. Pam sets the friendly yet professional tone of the office from the moment you walk through the door. Dr. Martinez performed a lengthy procedure on me today. She did a great job of guiding me through all of the steps and reassuring me along the way. She answered all of my questions and told me to contact her at any time if problems arise. I was, as usual, highly satisfied with my experience."
"I would highly recommend this office to anyone. The whole experience is first class starting w the waiting room w drinks, snacks, and reading material. The bathroom w mouthwash, toothbrushes, hand lotions. The staff is extremely friendly and professional. They explain everything clearly and the comfort of headphones and watching a TV on the ceiling while they work is awesome! Most importantly they do great work on your teeth! Big THANK YOU to Christie Martinez and her staff!"

"Lourdes did my whitening. She was absolutely wonderful. What a sweet and caring soul. Also the results were great. Had no idea my teeth could get this white."
"Seeing Pam’s smile is always nice when you walk in. She’s on the ball and very professional. Lynn did a great job cleaning. I felt she took a little extra time to make sure she hit all areas, and not just rushing me through to make room for the next patient. And always checking on me to make sure I was comfortable. :)"
Developed an abscess on Thursday. My own dentist's emergency number wasn't working (he doesn't work Fridays so would have been an 'emergency') so had to find a dentist before the weekend. Not only did they say 'come right down,' and I would be seen between patients. However, I was seen immediately. The whole office is very friendly, the dentist very gentle, and I walked out feeling very relieved.

Best Dentist in town
I have had several Dentist in my 17 years in San Diego. None have come close to Dr. Martinez and her staff. They have continued to go the extra mile on every visit. I have felt that they made my health and comfort a priority.

Your Friendly Neighborhood Dentist
Clean, friendly, professional dental office with some hi-tech equipment. There’s an in-house lab so they can offer same-day inlays and crowns, which means one visit instead of two. That’s convenient! All the doctors and hygienists are gentle and thorough. Dr. Martinez is amazing and Pam at the front desk always makes you feel welcomed. Highly recommend this dental office if your looking.
