VCA Raleigh Hills Animal Hospital

Rebecca Martin, DVM, Staff Veterinarian

DVM, University of Missouri
Departments: Dentistry


When Dr. Martin decided to advance in her career she wanted an area that would allow her to continue to work with dogs and cats, young and old, practice medicine and still do surgery. That meant DENTISTRY! Dr. Martin is currently a resident through the alternate pathway of the American College of Veterinary Dentistry and enjoys focusing on this passion.

Dr. Martin began working in the veterinary field as a teenager and used multiple part time jobs at emergency and university clinics to help finance her way through school. She started her academic training in her home state at the University of Florida, then traveled abroad to study veterinary medicine in Glasgow Scotland for 2 years before transferring to the veterinary school in Missouri. After earning her degree in 2006 Dr. Martin worked in Wisconsin before she and her husband, with their menagerie of pets, moved to Portland. Since moving, they have added more dogs, cats, chickens, a parrot, and a human child!

She began her career at VCA Raleigh Hills in 2007 as a general practitioner and has moved towards a practice limited to dentistry. Dr. Martin has always had strong interests in the role of wellness care and early detection on longevity and comfort. She firmly believes that we can dramatically improve an aging pets' quality of life by addressing causes of chronic pain or infection, particularly those in the mouth. Her favorite part of her job? The recheck appointment, when we see that our patients are healed and get to hear about how much better they feel!
