Dr. Mark L. Obman
Our team is committed to achieve and maintain the highest levels of excellence in patient care. We continue to pursue ongoing continuing education in an effort to stay abreast of the latest trends in restorative and cosmetic dentistry.
Dentistry has given Dr. Obman a special opportunity to help improve the quality of life of others. Cosmetic, restorative, and implant dentistry has changed the lives of patients. When a person is in dental pain, has difficulty chewing, or is ashamed of his or her smile, it can have long lasting negative effects. It has been extremely rewarding to be in a position to help people improve these aspects of their oral health.
Having been in practice for almost 20 years has allowed Dr. Obman to solve challenging problems, and develop long lasting relationships with a fascinating group of patients. The personal interactions with such a diverse group of patients has proven to be the most inspiring.
Dr. Obman graduated from The Creighton University School of Dentistry in Omaha, Nebraska. He completed his residency in advanced dental education with The University of Florida, and since matriculating from his program in 1996; he has been in private practice. Dr. Obman also served two years as an officer in the Army Dental Corps following a six year Military Police assignment.
