Meet Dr. Charles Martin

“It’s important to me that you feel comfortable. We’ll educate you and recommend treatment based on what you want and need – you ‘drive the bus!’ We will never pressure you into anything you’re not comfortable with.”


– Tampa Cosmetic Dentist, Charles Martin

‘‘Tampa is my hometown, and also my parents' and grandparents'. I love this community, and knew I'd come back after dental school to begin my practice in South Tampa. Now, it's an extension of my life; I'm always running into my patients at the grocery store or high school football games.

– Dr. Martin, Leading South Tampa Cosmetic Dentist

My Home

I have been in private practice as a Tampa dentist since 1982, here in my beautiful hometown of Tampa, Florida. Although I have always provided a wide array of general and preventative dental services, I began to develop a real passion for aesthetic and cosmetic dentistry in the early 1990s.

My Training

Since the 1990s, I have been taking advanced courses in aesthetic dentistry at one of the world’s leading cosmetic dentistry training facilities, The Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. There, LVI trained me in cutting edge technology and technique, which deepened my passion for providing superior aesthetic services in my South Tampa dental practice. So, in addition to general dentistry, I devote a large amount of time to improving and restoring patients’ smiles. Since 1996, I have veneered over 5300 teeth.

My Life

My life outside dentistry revolves around my wife, Cathy and our three children, Charlie, Maggie, and Katie. We enjoy spending time together traveling, hiking, biking, playing golf and going to the beach. I am an avid reader, particularly of biographies and history.
