When I came to this practice I felt that this would be one of the best educational settings that I could choose for myself, especially with the support of such a highly trained team of professionals. Our practice has definitely done that. More importantly, as the patient educator and practice manager, I love the fact that Dr. Marlin and our team can continuously deliver the care that we discuss in consultation. To consistently have that type of back-up is key to me.”

Fast forward to the end of December 2020, I happily decided to join this very high caliber practice as a full-time employee. I am here to handle administrative tasks as well as any patient needs. Being able to assist others has always been a passion of mine. I am excited to help patients in this capacity. I feel extremely fortunate to be a part of such an amazing team!”

Ziad received his initial dental training from dental school in Egypt.

I am seeking a positive, challenging environment that accepts the best and gives the patients responsibility and respect”.
