Every day you get a chance to help improve the lives of your patients and that is the best part of my job. I’m so fortunate to not only do what I love everyday but to do it with my family”.

    • “Dr. Marcus My dental appointment today was the best dental experience ever in my 62 years of life. I have what I like to call “dentist” phobia!!! I did not feel any discomfort at all. I waited for the discomfort of “the shot” , did not happen. Waited for the painful drilling, did not happen. I am actually looking forward to my next appointment. Everyone, from Dr. Marcus and his staff were “awesome”!!! Definitely will recommend to friends and family!!!”
