    Kimberly Martin, DMD - Las Cruces, NM“I have always been a nurturing and positive person and that transcends into my practice. I want to exceed my patients’ expectations by providing ethical, honest treatment recommendations and high-quality care using high-tech, top-of-the-line equipment. It means the world to me that we receive so much positive feedback, especially from fearful patients. It’s great to see them realize that something they feared before is actually quite painless and doable.

    “I love working with people and the challenge of blending science with a hands-on approach to patient care. The quick pace and diverse personalities, including those who are fearful, make my job more challenging and enjoyable. Making them feel more comfortable with their dental visits is an absolute highlight for me. Surprising my patients with a fantastic dental experience is always my end goal!"

    In her free time, Dr. Martin enjoys any kind of outdoor activity, fitness, art, travel, and enjoying her family.

     Patricia Martin, DDS

    Patricia Martin, DDS "I enjoy getting to know my patients and establishing a long-term relationship that allows them to feel comfortable and at ease. I especially enjoy meeting patients who are a little anxious and skeptical about coming in. It is always a pleasure to see their perception of the dentist change and to see them improve with every visit. My goal as a dentist is to help alleviate dental pain, help patients love their smile, and for everyone to leave with a positive experience. I am an avid learner and enjoy keeping up-to-date with the newest dental technology in order to provide my patients with the highest quality of care. I also enjoy educating my patients on ways to improve their oral health so that they are able to achieve and maintain optimum dental health."

     Wendy Lara, DDS

    Wendy Lara, DDS "I love being able to take people out of pain, seeing them hurting when they first come in, then seeing their face change when they have relief and feel restored.

    “My mom is very nervous about dental care and I would never want anyone to hurt her or make her feel badly. So I treat my patients as I want my mom to be treated. I hope to give them a comfortable experience that increases their function and esthetics. If patients feel comfortable, everything is easier. So I use my ability to put people at ease to enhance their dental experience.”

    • I was greeted by a friendly face immediately and was seen 2 minutes after I walked through the door. The staff is extremely professional, and always makes sure you're comfortable, including offering hand treatments with every cleaning. I would never go anywhere else for my dental services and surprisingly enough, I look forward to my visits at University Family Dental.
