Queen City Dental Team
Natalie Martinez-Rogers, DMDGeneral Dentist, Owner
Dr. Rogers is a first generation American, born to Cuban immigrants in New Jersey. She was always passionate about science and biology, but uncertain about where that would take her. In her final year of high school, she was invited by her own dentist to assist in her practice. This was her introduction to the world of dentistry and so a new passion began.
She achieved her undergraduate degree at Cornell University in upstate New York and enrolled in the Harvard School of Dental Medicine immediately after, graduating in 2008. During her time in dental school she was honored to be a recipient of the Mass Health Access Award, placing her in a position in a community health center in the two years following graduation. Simultaneously during her time there and the four years to follow, Dr. Rogers practiced in the private practice setting in two offices in Massachusetts. In March 2014, Dr. Rogers relocated to the Charlotte area with her family. After practicing locally for a short time she decided that she was truly ready to settle down and start her own practice, Queen City Dental!
Dr. Rogers met her husband while they were both graduate students in Boston; they were married in 2004. They have a 3 year old son and a daughter born earlier this year. Their family is completed by their four dogs.
During her free time, Dr. Rogers enjoys playing and spending time with her two children, reading books and running with her dogs. She is looking forward to getting back into shape for the next race season!
As a provider, Dr. Rogers' focus is on whole family dentistry, treating patients of all ages. It is her honor to provide the highest quality, most ethical and comprehensive care possible, and also to get to know her patients as friends. She very much looks forward to meeting you!
