Dr. Catherine Martin has always been drawn to science, working with her hands, and helping people. She decided that dentistry was the perfect combination of all of those things, but her decision to become a dentist was solidified when she shadowed Dr. Davenport while still in high school at Alexander High School.
After graduation, she went to Texas A&M University in College Station and earned a bachelor’s degree in biomedical science as well as an International Certificate in Communications and Cultural Competency in Spanish. Dr. Martin continued to Texas A&M College of Dentistry in Dallas to complete her DDS.
Dr. Martin loves this field because dentistry allows her to be an artist and create a smile that can boost the patient’s sense of well-being both physically and mentally. She really enjoys being able to make a difference in someone’s life by promoting good health and reinstilling their confidence.
Dr. Martin was born and raised in Laredo, so she is very excited to serve the community that helped mold her into who she is. She has worked hard to be able to effectively communicate in both English and Spanish. The ability to communicate helps patients develop a trusting relationship with Dr. Martin. She maintains a calming presence and truly cares about her patients’ well-being. She’ll do whatever it takes to solve the problem.
During her free time, Dr. Martin loves spending time with family and friends. She also enjoys dancing, watching musicals, traveling, and hanging out with her cat.
