    Dr. Sutor is efficient & friendly. He performed 2 quick procedures & the healing process went smoothly. The waiting room is comfortable, while dated (perhaps erring on Trumpish). His dental hygienist Joanna explained things clearly & was down to earth--wish I had her each visit. The office staff however turned a complete 180 once your procedure is over & payment. Upon insurance negotiations (my first time at that extent), they were both demeaning & rude to me & made little effort to save me $

    Dr. Sutor has a great team and everyone is very helpful. Holly is my hygienist and she is very kind and will answer your questions and concerns patiently. She is very professional and pays attention to details. Highly recommended!!

    Hands down, Pam is the best Dental Hygienist that has ever worked on this 68 year old's teeth: Gentle, empathetic, well-paced and thorough.

    Was impressed that Dr. Sutor called that evening to check on how I was feeling. Makes you feel like you are more than a number and money in the pocket. Staff did great job too. Very personable and professional. Thanks! :)

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

    Dr. Sutor says...

    My name is Mark Sutor. I am a periodontist in Bloomington, IN. I am the youngest of three "Sutor Boys" raised by a single mom in Hickory Hills, IL.

    I was the first person in my family to go "away" to college, where I attended Indiana University. An athletic scholarship allowed me to become a four year letterman in football from 1979-1983 at which time I was part of the first team in IU's history to win a post season bowl game (1979 Holiday Bowl). I feel very fortunate to have had that experience so I remain very active with IU education and athletes.

    My graduate education lead me to Dallas, TX where I attended Baylor College of Dentistry from 1984-1988. The year that I graduated, 1988, my son Chad was born in the Texas summer heat. I was about to start my general practice residency in Lexington, KY in July, so I moved our few dental school belongings to Lexington with the plan to return for my first child's birth but Chad "decided" to come a little early so I found myself scrambling for a way to fly back to Dallas to witness this great miracle of childbirth, luckily I arrived 30 minutes before his birth! Chad started a food truck business in 2010 called The Big Cheeze and in January 2015 he became the proud father of a new golden retriever puppy named Blue. I had to soon return to Lexington to start my next "phase of post graduate education". The hardest part of that experience was that I had to leave my newborn son in Texas while I began my residency. I spent one year at the VA Hospital in Lexington doing a general practice residency where I got to learn a variety of skills in each aspect of dentistry.

    Upon completion of this 1 year residency I then began my 2 year periodontal residency at U.K. School of Dentistry in 1989. My residency was filled with wonderful mentors and role models for my future career as a periodontist. I feel fortunate to have been exposed to so many great educators during that time.

    After a lot of research and discussions with my family and friends, I decided to start my practice in Bloomington in 1991. At that time there were no organized continuing education opportunities for dentists in Monroe County and the surrounding counties so I saw an opportunity to provide high quality continuing education and a surgical experience with dental implants that weren't available at that time. I am the President and founder of "Hoosiers for Dental Excellence", which is a study club that emphasizes "advanced education and continued lifelong learning opportunities. It has over 20 members from South Central Indiana. It was the first study club of its kind in the entire state of Indiana when we began in 1998. Now there are over 200 nationwide.

    In 1994, I was blessed with my daughter, Jennie. Born in Bloomington on a snowy night in January, she is the only true Hoosier in the family. I was raised with all boys, so having a daughter sure continues to teach me many life lessons. She enrolled at IU in 2012 as a psychology/biology major. She is a true dog lover, and has a beautiful golden retriever named Max.

    I cannot imagine anything I could love more than being a periodontist and dental implant surgeon but if dentistry wasn't in my future, I probably would have been a football coach at the high school or college level. Dentistry and coaching both involve helping, teaching, motivating and striving for excellence which are qualities I love to share with the people in my life.

    We are so fortunate to be able to treat a wide variety of patients young and old but the patients that stand out in my mind are the ones that value having a healthy, comfortable and esthetically pleasing smile for a lifetime.

    I have been lucky to treat a wide variety of patients from all over the world but I still get a warm feeling in my heart when patients tell me how special they feel when they are treated in our office. I loved to hear our patients tell us how wonderful, kind, and caring our entire team is and how professionally they have been treated in all aspects of their visit with us.

    One of the funniest moments in my career came when I arrived at my office and started to search for my daily surgical scrubs that I wear each and every day. Well, since my son was playing basketball at the time for Purdue, my staff thought it would be funny to have me wear "black and gold" Purdue scrubs. Well, to a diehard Hoosier fan and alumni, that was like a "stab in my Hoosier heart". We still laugh about that day my entire office wore those Purdue scrubs. By the grace of God, I survived.

    One of the greatest compliments I have received in my career was when one of my patients told me that our office was the most professional, up to date caring, well-organized, health care offices she had ever experienced. Coming from a patient that was 85 year old, I considered that a wonderful compliment knowing and respecting the fact that she had many life experiences in which to compare.

    I hope that my time and effort as a dental specialist and teacher will be remembered as one that helped people become as good as they can be. Our study club has given our dental professionals educational opportunities like nowhere else. I call it our dental school without walls. I feel fortunate to have been the leader in that educational journey with all of the members. These experiences have enhanced the dental care being delivered in our community and around the state.

    In September 2014, I asked Theresa Ricker to marry me, so we are planning to get married in the next 1-2 years. Life takes many twists and turns but I feel very fortunate to have such a loving and caring partner in my life. I truly look forward to spending the rest of my days with her.

    So that is my story. We are always accepting new patients and I would be honored if you would allow me the opportunity to be your dental specialist, to improve the quality of your life, for years to come.
