PRINCETON — Since 1956, there was been a dentist with the last name of Martin serving patients in Princeton.

From 1956 to 1989, Dr. B.J. Martin practiced dentistry on Mercer Street, then in 1989, his son, Dr. James Kevin Martin, started practicing at the present location of Martin Dental Associates at 1613 Honaker Ave.

Martin Dental Associates Office Manager Cindy Ramsey said, “We offer general dentistry, such as fillings, extractions and cleanings.”

The practice, she said, has seven employees, including Martin and her.

Martin’s wife, Jenny, serves as the financial administrator. There are also two hygienists and two administrative specialists who supervise the office functions.

“I like the interaction with the patients and see that their needs are met. They are our first priority and we work as a team to serve them,” Ramsey said.

“It has been an honor and a privilege to serve my patients and the community,” Martin said. “I hope to have many more years of practice in the future.”
