Patricia Hartman DDS
Martinsburg WV

 

Hello, I am Patricia Hartman and I graduated from West Virginia University School of Dentistry in 2007.

My office is located at 50 Street of Dreams, Martinsburg WV and the office phone number is (304) 267-7073.  The office has 4 operatories which are fully equipped and have BW & PA radiographic facilities in each operatory.  I have a pano machine, do rotary endodontics and have a basic lab set up.  There is 1 full time and 1 part time hygienist, 2 assistants and 1 front desk person.  We work a 4 day week, Monday-Thursday and some Fridays.  We practice sit down dentistry but we cannot take left handed students.

Martinsburg has a population of more than 15,000 in the county. There are 30 general dentists, 3 oral surgeons, 1 periodontist and 1 oral surgeon in this area.

My practice focuses on basic family dental care.  We have an established, preventive focused hygiene department. I do a wide range of procedures including root canals and extractions. I do not do any periodontal surgeries or implant placements. I coordinate treatment of more advanced cases with the local oral surgeon, periodontist, and endodontist.

I know there are a lot of dentists that now do not do any endodontic treatment or extraction but I base my treatment on the case. The students that rotate my office will have the opportunity to treat a wide range of conditions of appropriate severity for their level. In other word, I would screen the schedule for the student allowing them to grow with their skill level and the degree of difficulty presented with each case.

I think a student would like to know that I am a recent graduate and that I understand the difficulty they are facing. I am willing to teach specific areas they would like to know more about related to clinic dental skills and office management. The only thing they will have to bring is a positive attitude.

To reach my office, take 68 East to I70 East. Follow I70East to I81 south.  Follow 81 South to Martinsburg WV. Take Exit 13. Go right off exit ramp.  Take 2nd left past BCT bank. The distance from Morgantown is 140 miles and should take 2.5 hours.
