Dr. Mark S. Lake, DDS

Dentistry | Male | 53 years old

My passion for dentistry was inspired by my father's work as a dentist. I grew up seeing him help make his patients confident about their smiles, getting them out of pain, and restoring their function to improve their quality of life. With this positive impression of what dentistry could do for people, I knew it was the right choice for me. Now that I've been practicing for more than 25 years, I've never been happier with the decision I made. Each and every day, I get to work one-on-one with my patients to create for them beautiful, healthy smiles. Having patients come to tears when they have a life changing appearance, the hugs of appreciation, and the smiles of a job well done are my true reward.Read more

The office is great and Dr. Lake seems really nice. However, I was not pleased at all that when I started going to him, he told both my husband and myself that we had at least 5 cavities each. 6 months previously neither one of us had any cavities. One of mine was legitimate, but we switched dentists after I got the one cavity worked on and the new dentist didn't find a thing. Also, our appointments with him took a lot longer than I have ever had with another dentist.
