He pays great attention to detail, has an efficient and prompt staff and makes sure that the process results in a successful conclusion. He understands implant, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry very well, but also has “magic fingers” that minimizes pain and discomfort.”


“Hats off” Doctor Marlin for the outstanding work done on my 12 crowns and implants 28 years ago. I moved from the area 25 years ago. Today my current dentist praised your work as he was evaluating my mouth after viewing my panoramic x-ray this morning. All 12 crowns are completely sound and do not need restored or replaced! Thank you, Dr. Marlin, for your exceptional skill.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial

I was born with bad teeth. Not misshapen or misaligned, but weak. When I had my wisdom teeth removed in my early 20s, what I was told might be a 30 to 45 minute procedure was over in 10 minutes. As the dentist tried to extract them, the teeth simply broke into pieces and came out quite easily. At some point in my 20s, I realized that flossing was actually abrading and wearing down the surface of my teeth at and below the gumline and so I stopped flossing. That meant that receding gums and bone loss were added to the incremental tooth loss as my back teeth decayed and broke. By the time I hit my mid-50s, I had lost most of my back teeth, had two broken and visible front teeth, and badly receding gums. This was the disaster scenario Dr. Gerald Marlin faced when he first met me. With the help of sophisticated imaging, he was able to show and explain to me just how dire my situation was. I was hoping to have the All-on-Four implant full-arch denture treatment for both the upper and lower jaw. Unfortunately, as Dr. Marlin showed me, I didn’t have sufficient bone, especially on the upper jaw, to do the procedure. Undaunted, he came up with a plan to make my desired outcome possible. We would rebuild the bone, and then go from there. I quickly came to realize that the “new teeth in a day” promise made by the mass-marketed All-on-Four providers was, ultimately, a scam. Sure, there might be a very select number of individuals, with no complicating circumstances, who would be candidates for a one-day procedure. But even then, as Dr. Marlin explained to me, the typical move by such operations is to level-off the bone under the gums before sinking the implanted sockets. This means that, if further bone loss were to occur in the ensuing years, the patient would be out of luck, because so much bone would have been sacrificed in the initial “tabling” of the bone. Dr. Marlin convinced me that a much more gradual approach would give me the greatest chance of success. And that’s how it went. I had all my remaining teeth removed, bone grafts done, and was fitted with temporary, traditional, dentures all at the same time. With periodic appointments to check the success of the bone grafts, I waited for everything to be set for the sockets to be implanted. When the bone grafts had taken, I had the sockets implanted and a temporary set of screw-in appliances installed both top and bottom. Time was taken to make sure all the now non-moving parts were working correctly. Finally, the finalized upper and lower appliances were made and installed. Yes, the process took a year and a half. With numerous visits. And yet, thanks to Dr. Marlin’s generous discounts, it proved to cost really no more than the “new teeth in a day,” assembly-line type treatments which, I’m convinced, could NEVER have produced the results I’ve had. I now wake up every morning with a gorgeous smile, and one I don’t have to take out and put in a glass to soak overnight. Dr. Marlin is a true artisan and a true professional. And he has assembled a great group of individuals to help him do what he does. Which for me, was a miracle. I hope you will trust your dental health and aesthetics to this first-class team.

I've been a patient of Dr. Marlin for about 15 years now. Over the years I have been very happy with the care, and quality of work. Now, going through my first dental implant, and seeing what's involved in this procedure, I know that I would never want to take a chance going to anyone else. BTW, the staff is super. Efficient and very, very caring.

I was referred to Dr Marlen after being told by my family dentist that I had a front tooth root absorption and would need an implant. At which point I freaked out and staff nsisted on only going to someone with a lab and couch on premises, because I had now ntention of leaving the office if the tooth was not satisfactory..temporary or permanent. Not to worry ... Beautiful work ... Impressive office staff and support
