Meet Dr. Mark Margolin

Dr. Mark Margolin received his undergraduate degree from the George Washington University and his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. He completed a three-year residency specializing in periodontics and dental implants at Oregon Health & Science University, where he served as chief resident during his final two years. Dr. Margolin achieved the status of Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology in 2005, a verification of expert status in the field.

Dr. Margolin has devoted significant time to teaching and research. He was an assistant professor of periodontology at Oregon Health & Science University School of Dental Medicine from 2000 to 2003. Prior to his dental training, Dr. Margolin worked in cardiovascular research at the North Shore University Hospital Biomedical Research Center. He contributed to bioengineering research, which led to the development of medical devices still in use in cardiovascular bypass surgery today.

During his dental training, Dr. Margolin did cellular research in a skin bank and grew skin grafts for burn victims. Dr. Margolin continued his research during his hospital residency, with a concentration on bone growth factors and sinus augmentation surgery. His research has been published in several peer-reviewed scientific journals, and he was recognized for his efforts with the Quintessence Award for Student Research in 1994 and the California Society of Periodontists Award for Research in the Field of Dental Implantology in 1997. He also won the Northeast Society of Periodontists Student Periodontology Award in 1994.

Dr. Margolin has been placing dental implants for more than 25 years. He uses technology for diagnosis and treatment, performing virtual surgery on his computer before translating the treatment to the patient by way of 3D imaging and CAD/CAM technology. He will help determine the correct implant treatment for each patient, whether that is a single implant for a single tooth, titanium or ceramic zirconia, multiple implants for a bridge or snap-in appliance, or full-mouth replacement teeth-in-a-day fixed implant prosthesis. Using the latest technology enables Dr. Margolin to accomplish even challenging dental cases with the highest precision while utilizing less invasive techniques. Dr. Margolin puts emphasis on minimally invasive microsurgical techniques whenever possible, to ease recovery.

Communication and trust are key components of a good doctor-patient relationship. Dr. Margolin spends time explaining to patients what their needs are and options for treatment, then helps craft an individualized plan to meet their needs. He understands that he is treating a person, not a dental issue, and tries to create as pleasant a dental experience as possible for his patients.
