Mark Martinsen, DDS, Partner

I was raised in Friendswood where I graduated from Friendswood High School in 1997. I then attended Texas A&M University where I received my Bachelors of Science degree in Biomedical Science with honors. After graduation, I studied at Texas A&M University-Baylor College of Dentistry where I received my degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery.

Since then, I have completed hundreds of hours of postdoctoral continuing education. I am dedicated to the newest advancements in cosmetics, implant, and general dentistry. I enjoy keeping up-to-date with the latest technologies and the most state of the art dental procedures.

I have practiced in the League City and Texas City area since 2013. When I am not practicing my passion for dentistry, I spend most of my time with my two daughters, my son, and my wife Stacey. In my free time, I enjoy all sports and anything involving the water as well as coaching my children’s sports teams.

Brent Pattterson, DDS, Partner


In 1999 my wife Michele and I founded Texas City Family Dentistry. A few years later in 2005 we opened League City Family Dentistry. Since then, our practice has grown to one of the longest running and well-known dental providers in Galveston County. We have strived to become a full-service quality driven dental office that accepts small children to the most senior of our neighbors. Currently our patients range from 1 year old to 97 years young!

I was born in the old “County hospital” just across the parking lot from our Texas City office in 1970. After graduation from Texas City High School in 1989, my educational travels found me at Texas A&M University where I graduated with a Degree in Biomedical Science in 1993. While at TAMU, I founded TAMU Pre Dental Society which is a legacy that I am very proud of. My dental career started at The University of Texas Dental School at San Antonio where I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery in 1997. While in dental school, I served in leadership positions as a class officer and as the school’s representative to the American Student Dental Association. My education has continued over the years in many areas but the one specialty that I have found to be extremely rewarding is the treatment of snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea. After attending a Dental Sleep Residency Program at Tufts University Dental School in Boston, I achieved Diplomate status as an elite group of practitioners in Dental Sleep Medicine. I have recently joined the American Academy of Facial Esthetics where I have been trained in TMJ and Facial Pain using Botulinum toxin administration for those “hopeless” head and neck pain and migraine suffering patients.

During my career as a dentist here in the Bay Area, I have been very involved with the community and local service organizations. Some of my accomplishments include President of the TC/LM Jaycees Member of the Texas City ISD Foundation for the Future, and panel member of the College of the Mainland’s Dental Hygiene Advisory Board. As a member of the Ninth District Dental Society, I served as, President, Vice President, Treauser, TDA Delegate, and Peer review Chair. I have also received 2 nominations for Texas Academy of General Dentistry’s Dentist of the Year.
