About Dr. Eric A. Martin
Dr. Martin is an East Bay native, growing up in Alamo. After completing his bachelor of science in cell biology at U.C.S.B., he attended dental school at the University of the Pacific in San Francisco. During this time, he met his wife Ainsley, who works in the practice as well. After marrying the couple moved to Louisville, Kentucky, where Dr. Martin completed his residency and masters program in periodontics and dental implants. During his residency Dr. Martin and Ainsley welcomed their first child Kierra.
After completion of his residency, Dr. Martin knew that he would return to the Bay Area to practice Dentistry. He practiced with his father Dr. Dwayne Kim Martin in Walnut Creek before he was lucky enough to find the perfect fit in Lafayette. Soon after starting practice he and Ainsley welcomed their second child Anton and, later, Cole.
Dr. Martin continues to enjoy and thrive in the Lamorinda area and is very excited about the new additions and improvements being made to the office. Dr. Martin’s goal is, and continues to be, to provide individualized and exceptional care to his patients.
