His earliest experiences in dentistry started with dental assisting at his father’s practice during his high school years. He enjoyed working with his father and saw how he was able to help his patients with their oral health and overall well-being.

Dr. Mark graduated with a D.D.S. degree from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 2004. After practicing for a year as a general dentist in Lake Arrowhead, he continued his studies in dentistry and completed his residency in Advanced Periodontics at Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in June of 2008.
He joined his father’s practices in Upland and San Bernardino, CA during the summer of 2008 and is now working in several locations in southern California. Dr. Mark is trained in all aspects of periodontal therapy including LANAP laser surgery, bone regeneration, implants, and periodontal plastic surgery.
When he is not practicing dentistry, Dr. Mark enjoys spending time with his wife, Stephanie and their four kids, Katelin, Trinity, Joshua and Leah. Their activities together center around the outdoors and being in nature. They enjoy fishing, snowboarding, skiing, snowshoeing, camping and hiking.
