Marc J Pukenas D.M.D., M.A.G.D.
I believe that dental medicine is an integral cornerstone of the healthcare profession. Possessing the knowledge and skills to diagnose and treat oral diseases is a great responsibility that has led me to dedicate my professional life to treating such conditions, resolving problems, reversing damage, and restoring teeth and gums to the healthiest possible state. In addition, I help to educate all my patients, providing them with the practical daily guidelines necessary to maintain good oral health. For me, the most exciting part about dentistry is being able to improve a patient’s self-confidence by changing their smile. A beautiful smile transcends all languages.
