Meet the Doctor
"I grew up in Lincoln, and I’m happy to raise my kids here. Being a dad has taught me that no two kids are alike. That’s why we adapt to your child’s unique needs. Everyone here at Wilderness Station is friendly, gentle, and calm. We keep our focus on the big picture of your child’s long-term health because that’s what you and your family deserve!"

We had an amazing experience today. I cannot express how great all of the staff are at Wilderness Station. Dr. Marty especially was so patient and welcoming. Expected my almost 2 year old to scream the entire visit as she is very timid around strangers and cries just when people say hi to her out in public. She didn’t shed a single tear and even let Dr. Marty clean her teeth without a fight. They have a great way of easing little kiddos fears and getting the kids involved in the appointment. A smiley little girl, makes for a happy mom, and I will highly recommend Wilderness Station to all my friends.
I cannot say enough great things about this pediatric dentistry office. My boys (ages 7 & 4) had the BEST experience there and have asked multiple times when they can go back. The staff we worked with were very kind, patient, and helpful. The other day I got two cards in the mail with the boys' pictures from there and a hand written note from the dentist- so thoughtful and small things like that go a long way. I was anxious/nervous about finding a good place for them because dental health is incredibly important to us; I am extremely appreciative of our experience there and would recommend it in heartbeat.
Dr. Marty was very professional while at the same time very patient and accommodating to my talkative and terrified-of-the-syringe son. Keeping my son relaxed enough to work on 2 cavities after x-rays and an exam was everything I has hoped would occur and the office was able to do just that! Highly recommend this office for caring and gentle professional dental services.
My 4 year old autistic son had his first ever dentist appointment with Wilderness Station. They were understanding, calm, and patient. After his appointment, Dr. Killeen said to let them know whatever they can do to help make him feel more comfortable. He said they would try whatever it takes and that each time we visit, they will have a small goal for my son to accomplish. It was a great experience!
Dr. Marty and his staff at amazing! My kids love the dentist now! It’s not like fighting them to go back every 6 months anymore! The atmosphere is perfect for kids of all ages! We will continue to see him until my kids are of age to see someone else and I hope at the point he can point us in the direction of a great adult dentist!
