Meet Dr. Audra Martinez
Dr. Audra Martinez is a dedicated and skilled dentist at our Albuquerque, NM, practice. She takes pride in creating a pleasant treatment experience while helping patients of all ages achieve and maintain a healthy smile. Dr. Martinez is a New Mexico native who returned to her home state to give back to the place she loved during her childhood. Along with Dr. Byron W. Wall and the dental team at Cosmetic Dentistry of New Mexico, Dr. Martinez strives to provide exceptional dental care by putting patients at ease and taking the fear out of dentistry.
Educational Background and Qualifications
Dr. Martinez' interest in dentistry was sparked at a young age. Her parents worked very hard to make sure their children went to the dentist regularly, and Audra took great pride in never having a cavity. Her passion for oral health continued as she grew. When Dr. Martinez was in high school, she had to shadow a profession that she was interested in learning about. She decided that she would shadow a local dentist and was further inspired to pursue dentistry.
Dr. Martinez completed her undergraduate studies with a double major in Spanish and Biology from the University of New Mexico (UNM). After receiving her bachelor's, she went on to earn her dental degree from the University of Missouri in Kansas City, MO. She then returned to New Mexico and completed her Residency at UNM's Dental Clinic.
Joining Our Practice
A decade ago, when she was a student at UNM, Dr. Martinez met Dr. Wall at a pre-dental meeting. Dr. Wall was always a big advocate of dental education and encouraged all the pre-dental students to visit his office. Dr. Martinez was impressed with Dr. Wall's skill and experience, and soon began to shadow him in our office.
Dr. Wall immediately recognized a student with a dedication and passion to dentistry rarely seen. Our team saw in Dr. Martinez, a compassion for patients that can't be taught. We quickly created a part time position that lasted 10 years, allowing for Dr. Martinez to work and train at Cosmetic Dentistry of New Mexico during holiday and summer breaks from school. A decade after shadowing Dr. Wall at our practice, she joined our team, excited to treat the many patients who are already like family. With Dr. Martinez' skill and love for her patients, Cosmetic Dentistry of New Mexico is able to continue welcoming our patients into a friendly, relaxed environment that eliminates the anxiety many associate with dental care.
At Cosmetic Dentistry of New Mexico, Dr. Martinez and our team love our patients and provide the personalized care they need.

Returning to our dental practice has given Dr. Martinez a special place to provide services that can benefit the lives of patients and give back to the community she knows and respects. At Cosmetic Dentistry of New Mexico, Dr. Martinez and our team love our patients and provide the personalized care they need.
