"Bottom line, I love them. Dr. Marko and her staff are nothing short of amazing. I usually see Yvette, who I just love. They treat me with dignity and respect and remember who I am every time, which means a lot. The location is fantastic and the office is clean and cute. Most importantly, they run on time and function as a team. I trust the care I receive there, and they are always so wonderful. The staff is thorough and accountable. They treat me like a HUMAN! One time, for example, I marked my appointment time on my calendar and was late. We laughed and I apologized, and they saw me and spent the time with me that they normally would. Dr. Marko and Yvette are so sweet and gentile and caring. They make me actually look forward to getting my teeth cleaned!!! Thank you all!!!"



"Very good care, very friendly. Saw me immediately when I had an emergency (broken tooth) and gave me a temporary crown the same afternoon."



"I flew over 5,000 miles to ensure I received the best dental care. Dr. Marko and her team did not disappoint! I needed extensive work that had to be done on a tight schedule. They got it all done in record time and saved me from needing crowns and root canals! I cannot thank them enough for the care I received. The staff was friendly and informative throughout the entire process and Dr. Marko’s technical skills made it virtually pain free! Thank you all so much for making my smile that much brighter!"



"Dr. Marko and her staff are always top notch-on time, friendly and they make you feel like family! My kids are patients too and they have had bad dental experiences in the past, and they are at ease at Dr. Marko’s office and actually are excited to come!! She explains things so that you understand what is going on and is always gentle. Would recommend anyone to her office!"



"Dr Marko's office is exemplary! They treat all their patients with the uttermost respect and professionalism! Dr Marko is friendly in her manner and doesn't leave patients wondering about what they are doing! She is the person I trust with my smile! Her staff follow closely in her footsteps! I recommend Dr Marko's practise highly for all your dental needs!!!"
