Dr. Marlin's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Marlin "Dr. Marlin is a specialist (Prosthodontist) with extensive training in all phases of mouth restoration from single crowns and fillings to full mouth reconstruction. He uniquely works closely with his in-house laboratory technician, rather than using a commercial laboratory, to achieve the best outcomes. As a result, he provides custom fitting, very natural looking crowns and veneers, that have a very precise fit, and, therefore, last over 30 years (2-3X the national average). He is an expert in implant restoration having surgically inserted and restored over 2,500 implants with a 97% success rate, and having invented an implant restoration system. He is known for problem solving esthetic and implant issues. For over 20 years, he has been voted by his peers as one of the best Prosthodontists (restorative dentistry specialist) in each one of the Washingtonian Magazine's surveys."

i am 100% satisfied with my experience with Dr Marlin and the entire staff. I had extensive work done, 20 ceramic crowns and 4 root canals done. The entire team was thorough, professional, caring and worked to my schedule, which included 8 hour sessions. The tech that created the temporary and permanent t crowns is on staff and is a true artist. Dr Marlin is a perfectionist. I am 100% satisfied with the results. This should last a lifetime. I cant recommend enough Dr Marlin enough! Greg L

"Going to the Dentist" is something I rarely look forward to, but in dealing with Dr. Marlin and his office, I would make an exception. They all go out of their way to make their patients comfortable and the experience as positive as it can be. The professionalism exhibited by the staff is exceptional and Dr. Marlin's expertise has led to many positive comments about my "smile." I couldn't imagine a more successful outcome to my treatment.

Recently, Dr. Marlin and his excellent team helped restore my smile that had become very worn and damaged. My entire top row of teeth are now crowns and they are so natural and shaped perfectly to fit my face shape and size. I was shocked prosthetic teeth could look so real. This is all thanks to Dr. Marlin's tireless efforts in perfecting the functionality and aesthetics of my awesome new teeth! He assured me he could fix my smile and the outcome is better than I could have imagined. Thank you!

I have been a patient of Dr. Marlin's for about 15 years. Despite being very diligent with my oral hygiene, I am prone to developing cavities. Dr. Marlin has been a major contributor to my oral health and great smile, despite my predisposition. I have undergone many different treatments, from simple cavities to major implant and complex prosthodontic work - Dr. Marlin has done an outstanding job! And his office staff are professional, talented, courteous and nice.

Dr. Marlin was referred to me and I will be forever grateful. I had an extremely challenging case, one that required the ultimate professional. His expertise is second to none. His technique with existing implants, old crowns and bone issues were carefully addressed. My case was extensive and required a team. Two other doctors were involved and Dr. Marlin organized the procedures to perfection. The entire staff is exceptional. There is no finer.
