Professional statement

Dr. Mark Santamaria purchased this practice in May 2011 from Dr. Terry Gray, who had been at this location for more than 30 years. Dr. Santamaria graduated from Baylor College of Dentistry in 1980, and had his own practice in Michigan from 1981-2009. Whether you are here for preventative services or restorative services, our practice takes the time to explain the procedures thoroughly before we begin. At our friendly office, we have someone who speaks Spanish for your convenience. Prevent extensive, costly services by taking care of your teeth and keeping on top of your oral health. When restoration is required, we offer the latest technology and equipment for our endodontic procedures. We also offer crowns, bridges, and tooth-colored composite fillings. Other services include in-office wisdom teeth extractions and take-home whitening trays. We accept patients with Delta Dental CHIP under the age of 19.

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 wellas 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
