Every Family Has A Story, Here's Ours...
Every family has a story that it tells itself, that it passes on to the children and grandchildren. The story grows over the years, mutates, some parts are sharpened, others dropped, and there is often debate about what really happened. But even with these different sides of the same story, there is still agreement that this is the family story. And in the absence of other narratives, it becomes the flagpole that the family hangs its identity from. This is the Wilson Martino Dental Story, and we are happy you are a part of it!
Wilson Martino Dental, began with a mission, "To bring our community the best dentistry services possible." This concept started with the very first practice, opened in 1969 by Dr. Kenneth Wilson in Nutter Fort, WV.
The practice eventually grew out of its Nutter Fort office and moved to the current Bridgeport location. Dr. Robert Martino joined the practice as an associate in 1990. From this relationship, the Wilson Martino Dental partnership was formed and in 1992, another office was opened in Buckhannon.
In 1998 the Star City practice was established. This office eventually moved to Maple Drive in Morgantown, where it is currently operating.
As the organization grew, the two dentists realized that the offices needed a "home base" and WILMAR Management was formed. The management organization takes care of the day-to-day operations for all Wilson Martino Dental offices, allowing our professionals to concentrate on their patients rather than dealing with the worries of running a business.
After the formation of WILMAR management, the organization added five additional offices including:
- Sabraton (2000)
- Elkins (2001)
- Teays Valley (2004)
- Charleston Town Center (2004)
- Fairmont (2007)
In 2009 the organization saw another positive change when the Charleston and Teays Valley offices combined and moved to 3568 Teays Valley Road in Hurricane, WV. This move allowed the busy office to expand while offering FREE parking in a convenient location with easy access to the interstate.
In 2012, Dr. Robert Martino and his colleagues at Dentist Select launched their newest product. Oracure is an oral health rinse, designed to fight infection, bad breath, bacteria and more. With this product, our doctors have begun to change dentistry as we know it.
In 2013, the organization added iSmile Ortho to the services being offered. The orthodontic team is led by Dr. Andrew Thompson and travels to each office, where both traditional and Invisalign orthodontics are offered.
In 2016, Tots and Teens Dentistry, located in Nutter Fort was opened. This office was established as a comfortable, child-friendly location; being served by our seasoned hygienists and dentists.
Right now and looking towards the future, our organization is focused on a vision - a vision that includes our Teams, our Communities, and you - our Patients: "Our job is to make people smile. We are committed to taking care of our patient's oral and general health wants and needs. Our purpose is to make positive impacts on our Patients, our Teams and the Communities we live in. We will treat your family like they are our family. We are proud of who we are!"
