Pediatric Dentist, Veronica Martinez

Meet Dr. Veronica Martinez

Scottsdale Tongue Tie Specialist

Dr. Veronica Martinez, fondly known as “Dr. V,” finds it exciting to provide care to the children of her Scottsdale pediatric dentistry practice. She was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Growing up, she spent many days in the classroom with her mom, who was an elementary school teacher for 32 years. Even then, Dr. V knew she wanted to combine her passion for children and serving others.

“In our experience, Dr. Veronica Martinez sets the gold standard for pediatric dentistry. We’re relieved to have found our “dental home” for our child’s future care. Thank you, Dr. V and team, for an unforgettable and exemplary dental experience.”
