Dr. Sutor's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Sutor "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. 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. 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. 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. I married my loving and caring partner, Theresa Ricker in June 2016. Life takes many twists and turns but I feel very fortunate to have Theresa 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."
