Dr. Robert Marcus, DDS
My formal dental education at the University of Maryland, Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, included a two year residency for specialized training in Pediatric Dentistry at facilities in both the University and at the Kennedy Krieger Institute at Johns Hopkins Hospital. I was fortunate to open my pediatric dental office in Reisterstown Maryland where my practice focuses on complete, compassionate dental services for infants, children, teens, adults, and those with special needs.
The rewarding experiences in the treatment of thousands of babies and older patients by dental laser surgery for their lip and tongue ties have opened a whole new aspect of patient care. Working with our youngest (14 hours old) to my oldest (67 years), we have seen newborn babies thrive and adults enjoy a previously unknown sense of freedom after releasing their restricted oral tissues.
By pursuing additional training in breastfeeding medicine, speech and language pathology, skeletal development, feeding disorders, and cranial sacral therapy, I hope to provide lifelong improvement in feeding and oral motor skills for my patients. My commitment to continuing education allows me to discover and share the newest advances in dentistry and oral healthcare with my patients and colleagues. My presentations have reached audiences that directly impact the health and well being for thousands of families.
For more than forty years, I have endeavored to contribute to the health, happiness, and well-being of my amazing family: Judi, Rachel, David, Emily, Benjamin, and Jackson.
I truly enjoy being a part of my family’s fun activities by traveling to visit my daughter Rachel in New York City, my son David and his wife Emily in Massachusetts, and their twins, Ben and Jack (2 years old), my future partners. My camera is always at the ready whether we are swimming, sightseeing, or doing obstacle course racing, (Spartan races). I have to keep active because my wife Judi is a world class chef!
