"I have had nothing but phenomenal work done by Dr. Marlin and staff. During the course of over 23 years, I have had crowns, bridges and fillings replaced, all of which were the most professional I’ve ever had. In fact, what led me to Dr. Marlin in the early 1990s was the bridge he created for my upper front teeth. A true testament to his work is that, not one person in over 20 years could ever tell that there was a bridge. The size, color and integration with the rest of my teeth was (is) flawless. I am still wearing the same permanent bridge after all this time and still, no issues. In general, I have nothing but positive things to say about his work and products."
