I came to Dr. Martinez Lujan during the pandemic. I love the atmosphere, the friendliness of the staff and the overall energy of the practice. They know me by name when I arrive for my appointment and provide a warm and sincere greeting. The excellent dental care is just part of the experience. I have always been seen in a timely manner and in instances where an employee needed to be out of the office the other staff members step in to ensure a seamless experience. I can't say enough about Dr. Martinez Lujan and her practice.

An excellent service that you won’t find anywhere else, the staff is always friendly, caring and attentive to your dental needs, love the extra touch of sending you reminders to your home when your appointment is approaching. The place is always spotless and something very important for me is that Dr. Martinez-Lujan is fully bilingual (Spanish-English) makes you feel more comfortable as Spanish speaking person myself. I highly recommend her practice, you won’t be disappointed!
