Marta A. Penman
Dr. Marta grew up in Orange County where her father still practices dentistry.  She went to Universtity of Alabama and Georgia Tech, and played volleyball for both schools.  She then went to Medical College of Georgia and Loma Linda School of Dentistry, where she received her DDS.  Dr. Marta has limited her practice to children, because after seeing so many adults who have terrible fears of the dentist, she thought she could help give kids a better start to a healthy mouth.  She loves hearing from parents that their children couldn’t wait to come to the office! She truly enjoys working with children, and helps out in her own kids’ classes, as well as helping coach their teams.  She can often be found playing volleyball, tennis, or spending time with her three great kids!
