Dr. Ryan Martz's life story

Growing up in a military family, Dr. Ryan Martz has lived all over the world. He was born in San Diego but considers Hawaii to be his home. Excited to live and practice in Las Vegas, affectionately known as Hawaii’s “ninth island,” Dr. Martz feels honored to provide dental care for the local community.

As a young teenager, Dr. Martz fell on his face and chipped his tooth. This damaged his self-confidence and eventually, he was able to get his tooth fixed by a dentist. Once he saw and understood a dentist’s ability to restore confidence, he found his calling to become a dentist and improve the lives of others. Dr. Martz likes to focus on cosmetics and improving peoples’ lives and confidence.

Dr. Martz would like his patients to know that he understands dental anxiety and makes every effort to explain expectations clearly so that patients can get a clear picture of treatment. Dr. Martz is trained to safely administer several options for anesthesia and makes sure that every patient is comfortable before, during, and after treatment.

Education

Dr. Martz graduated with his bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University–Hawaii in political science. He earned his Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry (DMD) degree from the University of Pittsburgh, School of Dental Medicine.

Outside the office

When he’s not at work, Dr. Martz loves to surf and hike. His favorite local spot is Red Rock National Park, where he likes to take his Great Dane and three children to enjoy the day. He continuously strives to better his dental abilities by studying new techniques and technology in dentistry. He also loves to cook, especially BBQ, which is perfect for his weekly date nights with his wife and the cooking classes that they take together frequently.

Never stop learning

Dr. Martz loves learning new techniques and procedures. He has completed the Hornbrook Functional Aesthetics course and is an active member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. He is also a member of the ADA and Crown Council, which is for those dentists who are dedicated to the highest level of practice success.

Dr. Martz knows that his team is his most valuable asset. He is committed to constantly training and nurturing his staff to create a culture that patients will fall in love with.
