Kimberly Hostetler

Registered Dental Hygienist

Kim, Dr. Martinez’s Registered Dental Hygienist, grew up in Downey, where she attended Warren High School. At 16, she began working for Vons Market in Paramount, where she enjoyed interacting with so much of the community on a daily basis for 9 years. After High School, she attended Cerritos College part time. Winning a scholarship through the Retail Clerks Union pushed Kim to attend college full time and, in 1997 she graduated from the Dental Hygiene Program.

In 2002, Kim came back to Paramount to work for Dr. Martinez (who coincidentally was in the same lot as the Vons Market). Much to her delight, she would be interacting with the same community as with her 1st job. Only now, she would have a hands-on role in maintaining the oral, and overall, health of the same great community. Her patients benefit from her caring personality and her thoroughness (often being the first one in the office in the morning to review her patients’ charts) assures each patient the best care.

In her spare time, Kim enjoys caring for her furry brood. She and her boyfriend Andrew have an assortment of cats and dogs, all of whom are very spoiled. The also enjoy music and have taken a few vacations based on a concert’s location


Cindy Shehan

Registered Dental Hygienist

Cindy completed her Dental Hygiene degree in 1991 graduating with honors and receiving the award of Best Clinician in her class.
As a practicing Hygienist for the last 25 years she has extensive experience in soft tissue management. She is extremely happy to be returning to Dr. Martinez's great team after leaving in order to have more time to raiser her two children. Caring and friendly, Cindy enjoys working with her patients to providing them with excellent dental care. As a member of Dr. Martinez's team, her mission is to help teach and motivate her patients to maintain their healthy smiles for a lifetime as well as their overall health. 

Outside of work Cindy enjoys spending time with her family. With a son who is now in college, she is still very involved with her daughter's school and dance activities. She also enjoys hobbies such as sewing!

Been coming to Dr Max for over a decade. Best dentist in the game and a super nice guy. Treats his patients like family. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone and everyone.

There are not enough kind words to say about this office... have known them for 15+ years and they have been ever so accommodating and willing to work with me to try the best ways to care for issues without major procedures. Both Dr Max and Dr Tsao are amazing! The techs are super knowledgeable and superb at what they do, as are the rest of the staff. I have never had a bad experience in the 15+ years I have used this office... if not for them I don't know that I would go to the dentist... it's a daunting place to go normally - this office makes it easy to go in and know you won't be forced into unnecessary treatment or put under unnecessary stress... and never any judgment! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
