Dr. Mark Anthony Marbach
Dr. Mark Anthony Marbach was born and raised in Kingwood, Texas. At 3 years old, he began his training in concert piano and developed a love for music. The manual dexterity he developed through his musical studies translated to wood working where he began restoring furniture, houses, and other projects with his father. He began to compete in statewide wood working competitions where he won third place in 2006 for his craftsmanship. His hobbies sparked a passion for creation and restorations. He has spent his entire life immersed in the dental field, as his parents were both involved in the dental profession. At a young age, he was able to witness his mother restore and create smiles, and thus sparked his own interest in the dental profession.
He received his Bachelor of Science degree from Saint Mary's University in San Antonio, Texas. During his undergraduate studies he spent his time as a tutor and a teacher's assistant for biology and organic chemistry. His interest in the sciences lead him to research the bonding of composites to zirconia crowns. He was invited to present his findings to the American Equilibration Society annual meeting in Chicago in 2011, as well as to the students of UT Health Science Center San Antonio dental school. His early involvement at UTHSCSA dental school led him to begin performing certain dental procedures on manikins prior to his acceptance into dental school.
He received his Doctorate in Dental Surgery from the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. During his professional studies he continued his research under Dr. Nasser Barghi DDS, MA and was invited once more to present his findings to the AES and to UT Health SA. His findings became the university's protocol for bonding zirconia crowns. He developed a passion for prosthodontics and began tutoring his classmates and underclassman in dental prosthetics. After graduation, he obtained certificates in advanced implant prosthetic mastery through the Advanced Dental Implant Research and Education Center. He continues to practice at the family dental practice, where his mission is to provide high quality, comprehensive dentistry "By the Family, For the Family".
