Jeremy Skinner, DDS
Elliot Martich DMD
Dr. Martich was born in Indiana in a small town on Lake Michigan, but quickly became an Arizona transplant. From the age of two, Dr. Martich was able to establish roots in a rapidly growing Valley, eventually attending high school at Brophy College Prep. Dr. Martich completed his undergraduate education at the University of Arizona, majoring in Physiology through the College of Medicine. Following undergrad, Dr. Martich was presented with the opportunity to return to the Valley and become a member of the inaugural class of Midwestern's College of Dental Medicine.
Dr. Martich enjoys employing modern dental technologies and materials in the practice of dentistry, while also staying focused on the fundamentals. Being a member of the My Family Dental Centers group has enabled Dr. Martich to expand his clinical abilities through mentorship with his experienced colleagues. Dr. Martich's goal is to work with patients as a team and help them achieve a healthy mouth and a smile they will be proud to display. Dr. Martich is a member of the Arizona Dental Association.
Dr. Martich has an intense passion for mountain biking, which has taken him from Sedona to New Mexico. Ranking far behind bikes, he also enjoys home improvement, computers and cooking.
Eric L. Kerbs, DDS
Dr. Eric L. Kerbs grew up in Draper, Utah. After completing a service mission in Osaka, Japan, he attended and graduated from the University of Utah with a BS in Medical Biology and minor in Chemistry. He then received his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. While completing his dental degree, Dr. Kerbs received multiple scholarships, including one from the National Institutes of Health for his research and publication on gene mapping and the discovery of antibiotic resilient genes.

Having practiced dentistry in Arizona since 2005, Dr. Kerbs' desire to provide affordable, comprehensive dental care, and his "put the patient care first" philosophy, has helped him expand to ten offices in the Valley. Patients and staff alike enjoy his professional but friendly demeanor as well as his dental craftsmanship.
Dr. Kerbs and his wife have two small children, and he enjoys spending time with family and friends. He also oil paints, and has donated several of his paintings to local charities for fundraising campaigns.
"I am proud to provide my patients with the best in dental technology, treatment options, and patient comfort. It is my pleasure to address all your questions and concerns." – Dr. Eric L. Kerbs
