Doctor

Dr Mike Martinsen, DDS Dentist

Dr. Mike Martinsen received his undergraduate and graduate degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He later received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Marquette University School of Dentistry. 

Dr. Martinsen enjoys problem-solving, a skill that led him to his first career as an Engineer. As a dentist, he is most fulfilled when helping solve his patients' dental-related problems, such as fear of the dentist, embarrassment with smiling, or pain or difficulty while eating.  

When Dr. Martinsen is not at the clinic, he can be found wrestling his three young children, mountain biking the beautiful trails of WNC, or building projects with his family.

Doctor

Dr. Robert Busey, DDS Dentist

Dr. Robert Busey earned his Bachelor of Science Degree from North Carolina State University and his dental degree from Virginia Commonwealth University. He has been president of the Buncombe County Dental Society since 2016 and won the LFR Founders Award in 2018.

Dr. Busey loves the creativity that working with his hands provides. Having patients leave the office looking and feeling better than when they came in makes his day!

When he is not seeing patients, Dr. Busey loves to put his pilot license to good use—flying. He has also been an avid skydiver for over four decades. Dr. Busey enjoys scuba diving and playing racquetball as well.

Satisfied Clients

Testimonials from Our Beloved Clients

5/5

“I was fairly embarrassed/anxious about going to the dentist because it had been so many years since my last visit. Everyone at Fairview dental was accommodating and kind, making me realize there was zero reason for the anxiety I was feeling. Thank you!”

Jonathan Dwyer

5/5

“I had a broken tooth the day before Memorial Day and called 24 different dental practices in the Asheville, NC area and not one of them was willing to help me…..except Fairview Dental. I was not even a patient there and they went out of their way to accommodate me. Needless to say, I will be a patient there going forward. Great experience. Highly recommend.”
