I’m Dr. Todd Martin and I’m honored that you are taking time to visit our website and consider us for your dental needs. I know you have a lot of choices for dental care in the La Grange / Brookfield, Illinois area, and you might be wondering why you would choose our office. To answer that question, I will share a little bit about my practice philosophy and share the type of the feedback I’ve gotten from patients, staff and specialists over my 20+ years in practice.
I believe in treating my patients the way I would want to be treated or the way I’d want my wife and family to be treated if they were in someone else’s office. This means I take the time to explain your situation and treatment options. If there is more than one way to treat your situation, I’ll let you know and I’ll share with you the advantages and disadvantages of each option. I will take the time to answer your questions and I often use an intra-oral camera, which allows you to see the inside of your mouth on a screen so that I can share with you what I am seeing.
My priorities are to make sure that you have a healthy, beautiful, confident smile. We offer preventative care such as cleanings, treatment for periodontal disease, and restorative care such as tooth-colored fillings, inlays and onlays, as well as crowns and implants. Many patients may not be aware of the problems that tooth grinding causes and that it is a very treatable condition.
I am also aware that your smile is an important component of the first impression you make upon meeting someone. It conveys your health, confidence, and social status. Like it or not, a pretty smile may affect whether or not you get a job you interview for, and how much you will earn. I have spent over twenty years creating beautiful and natural-looking smiles. Please take a look at our Before and After photos to get a better idea. We offer Boost in-office whitening procedures and Opalescence home whitening kits. We can use bonding and veneers to improve the color and shape of your teeth as well as fill in gaps. We offer orthodontics to people of all ages, including ceramic braces and Invisalign®.
I also take pride in having the finest network of specialists. When I opened my practice I interviewed specialists in the area and hand-selected the ones who were the very best in their field and who would treat my patients the way that I do. I work closely with my specialists and laboratories daily to ensure patients can be treated quickly and receive the finest care.
We have many patients who drive past hundreds of other dental offices to see us and most of our new patients come through referral. We asked one of our long-term patients why she drives out of her way to receive treatment from us and why she has referred so many friends and family to our office. I am very happy to share her words: “Dr. Martin is different from other dentists I’ve had. He doesn’t look at patients as a ‘wallet’ walking through the door. His staff is warm and friendly and you can see that Doc is genuinely happy to see his patients. I bet I see him hugging a patient almost every time I’m there. I think this is because he takes so much time to get to know them that many become his friends. He’ll talk to you throughout the visit, telling you what he’s doing but also getting to know you. I know that I could go to other dentists closer to home but I trust Dr. Martin and decided that I don’t want anyone else working on my teeth.”
