Personal Note from Dr. Marcus:
"First of all, I would like to thank you for taking the time to check out our website. As a prospective patient, current patient, family member, friend, or even colleague, I appreciate your interest! Technically I am a dentist, but what I do, day in and day out is much simpler. I help people. Every day I come into work, in many ways, shapes and forms, I help my Jacksonville and Northeast Florida residents, and feel privileged to do so. I get to serve this wonderful community together with an amazing team. As a team, we get the chance to help many: we help our people get out of pain when they have a toothache; we fix a person’s broken tooth so that they can chew and speak again; we help people eliminate chronic migraines that are attributable to jaw and muscle problems; we give people teeth who were previously toothless… now they can eat and smile again; we help people achieve a new found confidence and self-esteem through braces, whitening, and numerous other cosmetic procedures, and we even help people by providing their routine cleanings which prevents numerous other oral health problems down the road. So getting the chance to help these people is a huge reward I receive daily, for a small sacrifice I made by going to college for 8 years.
I really enjoy coming to the office each and every day, and seeing all of my patients, and getting the chance to help them. But, I also enjoy talking to patients and finding out what’s going on in their lives, what they’ve been up to, and what new plans they have. Even further, I get to meet new people all the time, and make them part of my “family.” I say family, because I feel like my patients are my family, and I treat them as such. As part of this family, I will help you in any way I can. Again, thanks for looking at our website, and I genuinely look forward to seeing you in the future."
