Why Choose Our Forest Hills Dentist
Forest Hills Dental offers some of the most experienced family and cosmetic dentistry services in the area. Our practice has served Forest Hills since opening in 1995.
Experienced Care You Can Trust
Dr. Gregory Mark has just over 30 years of experience in patient care. As a private clinician, he has spent extensive amounts of time pursuing advanced training and professional development courses in areas of care like dental implantology, oral surgery (including bone grafting and sinus lifts) and same-day dentistry.
In fact, Dr. Mark has served as a mentor dentist for the Kois Center, which trains dentists across the United States and internationally in areas of holistic, biofunctional, and cosmetic dentistry. He also served on the faculty of Blue Sky Bio Academy. Additionally, Dr. Mark was also one of the first mentors for CEREC, helping to guide and train other dentists incorporating CAD/CAM dentistry in their practices.
As one of the earliest adopters of digital dentistry, Dr. Mark has an extensive amount of insight and experience when it comes to providing the best possible care for families in Forest Hill.
Healing People. Transforming Their Lives for the Better.
Everyone deserves a dentist that they feel comfortable with and trust. At Forest Hills Dental, we’re concerned about more than just your smile; we also consider your overall wellness and underlying medical issues, as most of them are interrelated with your dental needs. In fact, we can closely communicate with your primary care physician or specialist as needed to map out a comprehensive care plan as it relates to your optimal health.
Considering Your Unique Preferences
As your Forest Hills dentist, Dr. Mark recognizes that you have your own unique smile priorities and preferences. You may be more concerned with a particular issue, while someone else has other things in mind.
Your voice matters. Dr. Mark will customize your care plan to meet your specific situation and goals. Together, you and Dr. Mark will be able to co-plan your treatments to meet the end results that you’re looking for.
Treating You Like Family
Over the last three decades, we’ve served multiple generations of the same families. Whether you’re a busy parent, grandparent, or returning to our office with children of your own, we’re committed to treating you like one of our own family members.
Through the years, many of our patients have become close friends with Dr. Mark and our staff. Through the long-lasting relationships that we’ve formed, we’ve been able to use our skills as oral health providers to change the quality of life and livelihood of people throughout the Forest Hills community, whether they be young children or seniors with missing teeth.
Incorporating the Latest Technology
Dentistry is ever changing and evolving. Staying abreast of the latest technology means adapting years of experience with new research to provide the best oral health outcomes.
We’ve invested in resources like laser dentistry, 3D scanning, same-day CAD/CAM (CEREC) resources and more. This technology combined with Dr. Mark’s years of experience ensure that we’re able to provide treatments and therapies that are worthy of what we would want to provide for our own personal smiles and those of our families.
Comfortable Amenities During Your Visit
Our practice is set up to provide a relaxing atmosphere and personalized experience for each guest. While you’re here, enjoy a complimentary water or hot cup of coffee as you catch up on any necessary forms. When it’s time to step back for your care, you can select your favorite television show or movie to help distract you and pass the time during your procedure.
Multi-Lingual Staff and Forest Hills Dentist
If you’re looking for a dentist or dental office that’s fluent in languages other than just English, you’ve come to the right place! Between Dr. Mark and our diverse staff, we have individuals who are fluent in both Spanish and Russian!
Being able to communicate in a patients’ first language ensures we understand them as best as possible without the risk of accidental misinterpretations or misunderstandings.
Why Biomechanical and Functional Dentistry?
our teeth affect the way your TMJ and facial muscles move and perform each day. In turn, this radiates into your face, neck, and shoulders. Inside of your mouth, gum health and periodontal disease walk closely hand in hand with systemic health issues like heart disease, diabetes, infertility, and others.
When we treat your dental needs with a holistic approach behind them, we’re able to provide care that enhances your quality of life and overall health. Your mouth and body are not two separate entities; rather, they are closely interrelated.
A Place for Your Entire Family
As a family practice, we provide a diverse range of services for all ages. We make it convenient to bring everyone in your home to the same dentist, rather than to various offices across town.
Since we work with multi-generations of families, we get to know our patients beyond the unique needs of their smiles. From past medical histories, genetic factors, and unique concerns of individuals as they affect their lifestyles, we’re committed to putting your concerns ahead of everything that we do.
Same Day Dentistry
From same-day emergency dentistry appointments to single visit dental crowns, we offer efficient and streamlined care that treats problems in a timely manner. But being timely doesn’t mean we’re rushing through your services. Rather, we’re streamlining your care and eliminating unnecessary or uncomfortable steps that are more outdated. Digital dentistry, laser technology, and 3D resources are just a few examples of how we’ve made your care more accurate than ever.
Making Your Care Affordable
Our office accepts most major dental insurance benefits. But we also provide flexible financing options that allow you to easily fit your services into your monthly budget. Thanks to CareCredit, you can take advantage of 0% and low-interest financing and immediate access to funds to start on your treatment right away.
For someone who is deathly afraid of the dentist, my nerves disappeared instantly. When I first arrived, Maria the receptionist was very welcoming and that was exactly what I needed in order to feel more comfortable. I was then taken in for X-rays and of course my nerves started up again but Marvin was very patient with me and reassured me that there was no rush. Ana then took me in for my cleaning and she explained everything to me step by step. Not once did I feel uncomfortable. Lastly, I met with Dr.Mark who is very knowledgeable and gave me my next steps to ensuring that my teeth stay healthy and my smile gets to where I want it to be. Overall, it was an amazing visit and I know I am in great hands!
Thank you Dr. Mark! Visiting Forest Hills Dental was the best decision! I recently moved to Queens from Long Island and did not have a dentist in the area. My situation was unique and I was told that not to many dentist would take on my issue. I made an appointment on line. Maria the receptionist called to confirm my appointment, when I explained what was going on and she immediately re-scheduled to get me in sooner to see Dr. Mark. While in the chair Dr. Mark explained everything that was going to happen with the procedure and made sure I was never in pain. I am so happy I found them. Thank you again for taking care of me!
This office exceeded my expectations. Very friendly staff. Dental hygienist did an amazing job cleaning my teeth and the Dr. was very knowledgeable and cares to explain everything in full detail to his patients
