Francesca Martin, DDS

She has been a member of the ADA, WDA & Waukesha County Dental Society for her entire career.

She and her staff including her sons volunteer providing dental services at Team Smile at Miller Park and sponsor a team at the Waukesha RiverWalk.
Education is the key to life-long health. Prevention and education are cornerstones of her practice. Dr. Martin presented fun-fact filled lectures to many grade school classes in the Waukesha Area Schools during "Children’s Dental Health Month".
