He was also active in the professional dental community, lecturing at dental schools and conferences and contributing articles to many dental industry publications.

Marty is survived by his wife, Risë Mattler, and his son, Zachary. He is also survived by his mother, Irene Mattler, brothers Kevin and Daniel Mattler; sisters Susan Policastri and Sheri Mattler, and several nieces and nephews.
