My family & I have been going to Dr Santamaria since I moved to DeSoto for about 4 1/2 years and I love him & his employees.
A coworker recommended this physician and I sure am glad he did; the practice location was easy to find; the office staff are friendly and helpful; and explanations of why certain treatment recommendations were being made were given as well as explanations of what was going on during procedures; this was very reassuring and helpful. I am just so pleased altogether and will be staying with this provider going forward. Vicki T. 1/14/16

I've been a patient for a few years and his staff is friendly and helpful and he is patient and understanding of patients who are nervous or anxious while in the dentist's chair.
He was awesome! The staff is very welcoming! I was so comfortable, I feel asleep during a double root canal... I use to be super terrified of the dentist, but Dr Mark took away my fear!
it really was pointless as they never got the insurance forms properly submitted , so my time was basically wasted.

I will highly recommend Dr. Mark Santamaria. Very professional staff. I will bring my husband and children to see Dr. Mark.
I was very pleased for my 1st visit. Dr Santamaria focused on the problem and took x-rays of that area of pain. He was very competent in what he was doing and it was a pleasant experience. I will send my husband to him next. I have been to many dentist and he has been the only one so far that was caring about his work and doing a good job. Thanks Doc
Very friendly and considerate! Gentle with the "yikes, equipment" and very genuine with the bedside manner.
My husband has been to multiple dentists, this is the first one he plans on a return visit.
This was one of the few dental appts I enjoyed. The staff was efficient and professional. Dr. Santamaria was thorough and provided good advice for continued dental health.
Dr. Mark took over practice from Dr. Grey (who I went to for 13 years) and is excellent. Very gentle and complete. Got me in and out, and no pain! I appreciate him and his office staff.
I appreciated his questions and explanations about my situation. He was practical and didn't try to do work that wasn't really needed.
Dr. Santamaria was helpful in talking through with me plenty of useful information about my situation.
