Dr. Marlin never compromises on quality and insists on doing things correctly the first time.

Our unwavering dedication to excellence pervades every aspect of our practice. We refuse to take shortcuts or settle for second best, which is why we have established an in-house laboratory to ensure you are receiving the finest quality possible.
With long-standing experience, Dr. Marlin isn’t just working at the forefront of dental innovation; he is helping to define it. He has personally created a unique dental implant restoration system and has several implant-related patents pending. Our advanced technology and in-house lab are just a few elements of the Elite Prosthetic Dentistry difference.
Your smile, just like you, is completely unique. As part of his commitment to excellence, Dr. Marlin never takes a one-size-fits-all approach to patient care. With the vast increase in milled (machine fabricated) crowns being provided over the last few years, this is increasingly important. During your initial evaluation, he will focus on getting to know you: your goals, your concerns and the current condition of your oral health. He will customize your treatment plan to best address your unique situation.
Dr. Marlin takes the time to thoroughly discuss any oral health issues you may have and explain the benefits and considerations of the many treatment options available to you. Although he will recommend the best course of action in your unique situation, every decision made about your dental care is ultimately your own. Dr. Marlin will serve as your trusted guide and help you make the most informed decision possible.
As a result of all of these attributes, people come from far and wide to seek Dr. Marlin’s problem-solving care.
