Dr. Ana Martinez

The expert in smile transformation

Originally from Peru and with an international background, Dr. Ana Martinez graduated at the top of her class from Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia in Lima, Peru in 1997.

Why Dr. Martinez wants to be your dentist

Dr. Ana Martinez wants people to get healthy teeth and gums, beautiful smiles that are well maintained and last for life and a treatment plan tailored to each patient. She provides Montecito and Santa Barbara dentistry at the highest level of care possible so patients can achieve and maintain excellent oral health. Her focus is on helping patients so they understand the importance of oral health and providing them with a friendly, welcoming environment so they will want to keep their teeth, living longer and live happier.

After graduating at the top of her class in Peru in 1997, Dr. Martinez did a two-year residency in dentistry, then completed an internship at Witten/Herdecke University in Germany as well as a three-year residency at the University of Connecticut. She has extensive experience in general and cosmetic dentistry and wants to help the patients fix the root of their problems, get healthy and, learn how to prevent those problems from happening again. She is the first choice when it comes to a Montecito and Santa Barbara dentist.

Implant dentistry

Dental implants are the latest advancement in tooth replacement. While other methods for replacing teeth are in use, dental implants replace the tooth root and provide the necessary stimulation to your jaw bone. Undergoing a procedure for dental implants at our Montecito office will not only mean replacing any missing teeth, but also provide other oral health advantages.

Pediatric dental care

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends bringing your child to the dentist by age one, or within six months of the first tooth coming through the gums. Dr. Martinez can examine your child’s tooth development to make sure everything is fine. Children are also prone to having the same dental problems as adults, such as cavities and chipped or broken teeth. Bring your child to Dr. Martinez for routine cleanings and exams, and for education on the proper way to care for their teeth.

Some people shy away from conventional braces due to the social stigma surrounding their aesthetic appeal. Fastbraces make the journey much easier because they are just like traditional dental braces except they are enhanced to deliver quicker and better results. Thus fewer office visits and more time spent showing off your smile. As a dentist in Montecito, Dr. Ana Martinez is a renowned specialist in her field who will give you the results you’re looking for.

Oral Hygiene

Your nice smile can last a lifetime when you follow good oral hygiene practices. In addition to regular home brushing and flossing, you should get regular dental exams and cleanings. Dr. Martinez and her staff want to help you maintain your healthy smile. Make an appointment for your semi-annual visit today!


Tooth Extractions

Dr. Martinez does everything possible to help you keep your permanent teeth. But sometimes a tooth has too much decay for it to be saved. In these cases, the tooth needs to be pulled. A badly decayed tooth can become infected and adversely affect your overall health and quality of life. Also, wisdom teeth often become impacted, which means they are not growing in properly or are pushing against other teeth and creating problems. These impacted teeth need to be removed so they don’t cause discomfort and infection or push your other teeth out of alignment.


Why should you have your misaligned teeth straightened? Two important reasons are appearance and health. Straight teeth give you a nice smile that can boost your confidence. You will not feel embarrassed to smile because of crooked teeth. The other benefit of straightened teeth is they are easier to keep clean and to floss. You will get fewer cavities and be less prone to gum disease if your teeth have been straightened. Call for a free consultation about the Invisalign teeth straightening system.


Dental Implants

The latest advancement in tooth replacement is dental implants. While older methods for replacing missing teeth are still used and work well, they do not replace the tooth root. The dental implant takes the place of your missing tooth’s root, providing the stimulation to your jaw bone that’s necessary to prevent bone loss. This is what Dr. Martinez, our Montecito and Santa Barbara denist says about dental implants:

“I strongly believe that implants are currently the best solution for replacing missing teeth in a way that closely matches one’s natural teeth.”
– Dr. Ana Martinez

If you have missing teeth you want to be replaced, come see us for a consultation about how dental implants may be the right solution for you.



A crown is a tooth-shaped cap which we use to repair damaged teeth. The damage can be from tooth decay or injury. Dr. Martinez combines technical skill with artistry to give you crowns that restore the natural look to your teeth. You won’t be able to distinguish the appearance of your crown from that of your other teeth.

Electric-driven handpieces (dental drills):

Unlike the air-driven handpieces, an electric handpiece is quiet and has almost no vibration. No more high-pitched whine or jawbone rattling vibrations.

Computer-delivered anesthesia:

This computer-controlled method of delivering Novocain before a dental procedure eliminates human error and makes getting the shot virtually painless. It also can target a specific tooth, so you don’t end up with half your face numbed. Intra-oral camera: With this camera technology, we can show you exactly what we see when we’re examining your teeth and gums. This helps in understanding why we recommend certain dental procedures.

Soprolife camera:

With this new light technology, we can detect tooth decay in its earliest stages, before it has a chance to develop into larger cavities. This lets us repair the damage with minimal loss of your tooth enamel.

Piezo dental technology:

This is an ultrasonic method for deep cleaning of your teeth below the gum line to take care of gum disease. It is more comfortable than the older, hand-scaling method, and takes less time. Piezo technology also lets us prepare dental implant sites more precisely than older technologies.

Modern equipment makes dentistry more comfortable
