Sam Martin focuses on guiding dentists and their families through holistic wealth planning. He knows focusing on what, and who, is most important to his clients helps create a comprehensive plan to achieve long-term financial and personal success. He offers wide-ranging planning services to help clients address risk and insurance, estate and tax planning and other goals – unique to each client.

Sam has focused much of his career serving dentists and their families, focusing on profitability and proactive tax planning for dental practices. Through that work it became clear many dentists needed guidance on their personal finances and effectively building net worth for a comfortable and secure retirement. Sam is hawkish about applying tax strategies and tactics to all facets of his client’s financial activities. Keeping money out of the IRS’s hands and a strong cup of French roast gets him out of bed in the morning!
