Devin Brice, DMD
Welcome to Above Dental. I am Devin Brice, the owner and one of the dentists at Above Dental. Ever since sixth grade, I have wanted to be a dentist. I grew up in Coquille and graduated from Marshfield in 2000. Then I went straight through OSU for my bachelor’s degree, then on to OHSU School of Dentistry for my DMD in 2008. I’m so glad to raise my children in Oregon’s Bay area, where my family has lived for 5 generations.
Michael Martins, DDS
My name is Michael Martins, and I am new to the Oregon Coast as of December 2015. I grew up in Canada just outside Toronto. I graduated from Andrews University in Michigan with a bachelors degree in Biology and from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in Southern California. I love spending time with my wife, Annalissa, and golden retriever, Mocha; we like to backpack, canoe, travel, and spend time with friends and family. I enjoy helping others through dentistry, and I have had the opportunity to travel to the Dominican Republic, Sri Lanka, and Paraguay, where we provided free dentistry to those without access to dental care. I am excited to explore all the great places on the Oregon Coast, and I look forward to meeting and serving the patients at Above Dental!
