Meet Your New Waco Dentists
For Dr. Taylor, dentistry offers many of the aspects of life he is most drawn to. First, he loves people, especially getting to know new people, learning about them, and learning from them. He enjoys building relationships with others based on mutual respect and trust, and he loves helping and serving others. Dentistry also offers him the challenge of finding solutions to both simple and complex problems.
Dr. Martin’s father, Dr. Kent, was always present in his life, whether it was coaching him in sports or enjoying family time on weekends. He saw that his father worked hard but had a very predictable schedule. From an early age, he knew he wanted a career that afforded him the same opportunity to work hard but have a great balance in life. He felt dentistry would be an excellent fit to use his hands and artistic ability.
What Our Patients Are Saying
Very thorough, and informative. Any questions I had were answered, and each member of the facility did thier jobs very well.
Dr. Martin did an excellent job explaining the procedure, and took every precaution to ensure I was not in pain at any point! All of the staff were very courteous and I look forward to going back, and intend to make him my primary dentist.
The staff are extremely friendly and skilled. The office is clean and cozy. Highly recommended.
Tl;Dr - A good dentist if you have insurance, though appointment times are a problem. Got three teeth pulled here. Definitely don't recommend if you don't have insurance, but with my dental savings plan, the prices were actually affordable. The first appointment was in a reasonable time frame, but the next one was scheduled nearly 3 months later. Was also a bit weird. Got an appointment reminder that was for 20 min after what I thought my appointment time was, so I prepped for that, then got a call that I was late to my appointment - when I was on time for the time in the reminder. Was planning to get 4 pulled, but the dentist said he might be able to save one. I have zero confidence in that(the tooth is broken and ~40% filling at this point), but why not try. The actual tooth pulling was surprisingly fast, with the only pain being from the needles with painkiller. So, overall a decent experience.
As someone usually terrified of visiting the dentist, I tried Starr for the first time this week. They were super professional and friendly. They were optimistic and started scheduling what I needed right away without any issues or other unnecessary procedures and deep cleanings before they can get to what I wanted done. What a relief! I had Monica as my dental assistant and she was the nicest person ever! Thanks Monica and Dr. Martin!

Yeah. I started coming here in 1987, Dr. Starr and was just always very impressed with him.

He spent a lot of time with me and it was amazing how you get everything done, had a few implants, a little bit of everything to get it done. He was very good about getting it done in an orderly basis, knowing what to do, when, keeping me up to date, working it into my schedule. So it all worked out to be a great experience.
