Hygienist Angel Martinez studied dentistry in the Dominican Republic before moving to the U.S. in 2015. “We don’t have many dentists in my country,” he says, “and there was a time when I was younger that my mother’s teeth were causing her a lot of pain. I wanted to be able to help her, and other people in my community, so I decided to study dentistry.”

Today, he loves sharing his knowledge with his patients. “The most important thing for me is educating my patients,” he says. “If I can explain to you exactly what is happening in your mouth, and how you can fix it, and you can keep it up at home, then you’ll be able to see the changes the next time you come in.”

At Tend, Angel is excited to use all the latest dental technology to help his patients be more informed—and more comfortable. “If you’ve had a bad experience in the past,” he says, “just let me know your concerns, and always let me know if something is uncomfortable. With all the new technology, there is a lot we can do to help.”
