Walla Walla dentist sinks teeth into new private practice


Operators of Walla Walla Dental Group are all smiles over the opening of new practice Stone Creek Dental Care.

The addition marks the start of a private practice dental career for Dr. Patty Martin, who graduated from the University of Washington School of Dentistry and recently wrapped up extensive rotations in family practice at Eastern Washington clinics.

She will be open to treat patients by appointment starting July 30 at 2014 S. Howard St., the home of Walla Walla Dental Group. The practice will be open Monday through Friday and offers general dentistry to patients of all ages with a focus on preventive care, according to an announcement. The office features laser technology and chairside technology that allows same-day crowns. The office accepts most insurance plans and financing on approved credit.

The opening of Stone Creek Dental Care fulfills Martin's longtime dream to become a dentist. She has also wanted to live in Eastern Washington since being a student at Washington State University for her undergraduate studies. She is bilingual and previously worked in the airline industry.

Dr. Dan Laizure, founder of Walla Walla Dental Group and owner of Walla Walla Dental Care, said he has never received so many letters of recommendation from clinical mentors as complementary of the clinical skills as those received for Martin. He said he and Dr. Jonathan Gantz, managing partner of Basic Dental Care of Walla Walla, are looking forward to the new addition. For more information on Stone Creek Dental Care, call 525-5902.
