He enjoys creating beautiful smiles for his patients and loves the positive reactions he sees when patients see their new smiles for the first time.
Dr. Marchant has trained in implant dentistry with the White Cap Institute and loves to provide patients with an option to replace missing teeth with dental implants for a single tooth or even implant-supported dentures.

Dr. Marchant has great compassion and respect for patients who have had unpleasant dental experiences in the past. He finds it a great honor to be part of helping them overcome their dental fears. This can often be accomplished with the help of Oral Conscious sedation, which Dr. Marchant has received training in through DOCS education.
