Qualifications and Experience
It is an honor to have the opportunity to deliver dental care, from the simplest checkup to advanced procedures, to the patients in our practice. Using advanced dental technology, this can be achieved with little or no discomfort. Knowing I can make a difference in improving the quality of another person's life gives me great satisfaction every day I come to work. I have enjoyed practicing high-quality dentistry since 1984 and look forward to practicing for many more years to come. It is because of my education that I am able to provide my patients with the best care and attention they deserve. I graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1980 and continued on to New York University College of Dentistry where I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 1984. I have also completed post-graduate training in molar endodontics, periodontal surgery and dental implants. I find all aspects of dentistry interesting and have continued to educate myself in specialty fields in order to always deliver fully comprehensive treatments, utilizing the most current and successful techniques available. I have taken continuing education courses in prosthodontics and all phases of cosmetic dentistry and am a member of several professional organizations that provide me with opportunities for continuing education, including the: New York State Dental Association First District Dental Society National Society of Dental Practitioners Dr. Marks outside the office enjoys listening to music, playing his guitar. He also enjoys playing tennis and skiing.
Verified Patient Reviews
Finding a great dentist you can trust is extremely difficult! I saw Dr. Marks in 2003 to get cosmetic work (six veneers) and laser whitening. He is a brilliant artist—they turned out phenomenally! In 2008, I saw him again for a root canal and cavities. Super gentle guy, warm, kind, funny, and a plus if you're into great music (he's a musician himself) and funny paintings on the wall. Eventually, I got insurance so I ended up seeing someone else since he wasn't covered under my insurance plan. BIG MISTAKE! Today I finally went back to see him after all these years, fine with the fact my insurance wouldn't cover it, and I am so glad I did. He fixed what the other dentist messed up, and I've decided to see him regardless of insurance coverage. He's just the best there is.
All of the nurses and doctors were friendly and efficient. Will definitely return!
Fantastic dentist! I've never enjoyed a dentist appointment more in my life.
Thorough, pleasant; compassionate.
My wife referred me to Dr Marks, saying he was a character and very gentle. Both true! I had minimal discomfort throughout the cleaning and enjoyed his musings on Eric Clapton’s career.
Amazing dentist. Would highly recommend.
I’ve been seeing Dr. Marks for over 6 years! He’s the Dentist on 5th Avenue in NYC! I highly recommend him to anyone who need dental work.
Dr. Marks is a great dentist who definitely knows what he is doing and how to help you. Several people in my family see him with different issues and he has consistently delivered great care.
A compassionate, thorough, knowledgeable doctor.
He's a nice guy, I wish he was more thorough.
He's really an excellent dentist, that's not only good at his job, but cares about the patients and makes sure that he's communicative and honest about his practice. He came recommended, and now I recommend him to others.
Dr Mark's has been my Dentist for more than a decade. His work is outstanding. If you need to find a dentist I would strongly recommend him.
Fantastic dentist! Friendly, competent, timely and went out of his way to accommodate my schedule. I was clearly the last patient of the day and he found a cavity that was not seen via xray. Instead of having me come back because it was late and both cavities were in close proximity(and numb) , he stayed late and filled both. For the record, I'm terrified of dentists and would highly recommend.
Dr Marks is really great, very funny, and I felt comfortable the whole time. The only thing is, the appointment took a little longer than normal, but I think the office was busy that day.
I did not appreciate the fact that Dr. Marks numbed my mouth for a basic cleaning, just so he could do a cursory job on each tooth and needlessly rush through the appointment. He was careless with the tools because I was numb and couldn't feel as much pain, but still felt him slipping on my teeth and hitting my gums instead. Will not be going back.
He is a magician! Charles fixed up a very deep cavity (practically reconstructed a side of my tooth), something where other dentists told me I would need root canal with a crown. This was a good year and a bit ago - and it's still great
This was my first time visiting Dr. Mark's office and I was pleasantly surprised. The staff was friendly and the dentist was gentle and professional. Great experience all around.
A wonderful experience! Dr. Marks is super-nice and definitely knows what he is doing, the atmosphere is relaxed but extremely professional - very enjoyable. He repaired four of my teeth, and I am totally happy with his treatment and the results. I was in NY for just a short time, but after the first session (teeth cleaning - perfect!) I very gladly had him do all the repairs I needed and am absolutely satisfied with how he did them. The ladies at his office are very, very nice and professional as well. Before seeing Dr. Marks I would not have expected that a dentist appointment could be so pleasant - I will definitely call on his services again.
I have seen Dr Marks a few times already. I have some medical conditions which is not allowed any bone interactions, so my plans with an implants have been crashed. But he found another unusual way how to solve my problem. When I am there i feel confident. He worked quick, professional and I left the office amazingly satisfied, The office staff are very friendly and helpful, leave an impression as an excellent team work,
I chipped my tooth late at night and was able to book an appointment to get it fixed the next morning. Everything was excellent and my tooth was fixed quickly! Thanks, Dr. Marks!
Best Dentist EVER!!!!!
Dr. Marks is a true professional that takes extra care in profiding his patients with the best care that will serve them well in the long run. I trust him to do the right thing by me and have complete confidence in his work. Dr. Marks did some work on me today and it was done painlessly, quickly and to perfection. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends.
Dr. Marks fixed my chipped front teeth and it was amazing. Other dentists had said no, wasn't worth it and wouldn't do it. I'm so impressed with what he was able to do. I love my new front teeth; he made my month! The cleaning was also excellent. Least scary I've had in a long time. Would highly recommend this office to anyone looking for a great team that can do all the things and are super nice. The best ever!
Had a last minute dental emergency and not only was Dr. Marks professional and as quick as he could be under the circumstances (given that there were several plot twists regarding next steps with my busted teeth), he was incredibly kind and understanding regarding all of my questions and general freaked out-ness, never having broken a tooth, let alone two, before. Highly recommended.
Dr. Marks did an amazing job very quickly on my crown. I would definitely recommend him. I've finally found my new dentist!
Love him. He's been my dentist for years now!!!
Dr. Marks and his team walked me through every step of what I was hoping would be a quick chipped-tooth fix and turned into redoing a filling that was poorly done by a different dentist. I felt very at ease and well taken care of.
Great! He was very informative and taught me a lot about keeping my teeth healthy. He also uncovered a couple of issues no other dentist has before, explained to me my options and also gave his own recommendation on the best way forward. Great stuff.
very straightforward and clear, quick to answer any questions and offer options on necessary procedures.
Dr. Marks is the best!
Really nice, I like that he did the teeth cleaning himself..I was not expecting that. Everyone in the office was helpful.
Dr. Marks is a great dentist! Gets the job done! Very personable as well. Wonderful team in that office. Highly recommend!
First time in office, the dentist is the hygenist too. very friendly dentist. the assistant was a little rough when she took x rays. Dentist walked me to the front desk to settle up. Would reccomend
Very friendly, and really appreciated his willingness to carefully explain what procedures needed to be done and why. Will definitely come back again.
Amazing doctor, great staff.
Extremely professional staff and Dr. Mark was great too! I arrived an hour early and he accommodated me within 5 minutes. Him and his staff answered all my questions and were extremely professional. Everyone was very highly experienced and I'm glad to say I've found my new dentist moving into NYC.
I went in for a cosmetic consultation and he was extremely patient and answered all of my questions. He also literally showed me how my teeth could look by doing various impressions on my actual teeth to show me first hand. He went above and beyond what a consult normally is and I was very thankful for that. I wish all doctors did this during a consult! He offered me a lot of different options that would suite me right. I recommend him highly!
Fixed a chipped tooth on the spot and got rid of some coffee stains that had been there for a while... Great visit, thanks!
Great experience! front desk was very pleasant and helpful. Dr.Marks was very nice and worked with my insurance and within my budget. Both he and his dental hygienist explained what they were doing while they were doing it to calm me down as I have a major fear of dentists. The visit was pain free and I set up another appointment to go back next week.
I had a good experience there. I showed up a little late, so any delay in being seen was my own fault. I went in for a general teeth cleaning, and the doctor conducting it was very professional, and verbal about what exactly he was doing at all times.
Dr Marks took me early and everything went quite quick. The staff was great. They also played good music during the appointment which is always a plus!
