You might not have ever thought to put ‘relaxing’ or ‘comfortable’ in the same sentence as ‘dentist,’ but at Marion Smile Center, that’s the experience they aim to give their patients. Dr. Mark A. Marion has been awarded one of Pittsburgh Top Dentists every year since 2011 and for good reason. Their top priority is that each patient feels calm and comfortable in the chair as well as confident with their healthy smiles in their daily lives! He and his team have hundreds of rave reviews from happy patients, check them out for yourself here.
“I started going to Dr. Marion when my dentist closed in the middle of 2020. I am always so nervous before a dentist appointment – but not at Marion Smile Center. From the time you walk in the door to the end of your visit, you are put at ease. Everyone is so kind, knowledgeable, and understanding of dental anxiety. I needed several teeth dealt with and Dr. Marion completed the work and I felt no pain. I highly recommend Dr. Marion and the wonderful people who work at Marion Smile Center.”

Judgement Free Care
Dr. Marion is aware that some people are not super comfortable with coming to see a dentist, and that is ok! He invites people from all walks of life, with all different dental backgrounds. One thing everyone seems to have in common is wanting a healthy, bright smile! Please be sure to let his team know if you do have any dental concerns or if anything has happened in your dental past that they should be aware of to help make your experience as pleasant as possible. When you are at Marion Smile Center, you are the “captain of the ship” (as their longtime hygienist Katie says). It’s the highly educated team’s job to assess and give knowledgeable information, but it’s up to you what you want to do with it.

Sedation Dentistry in Zelienople, PA
One item on the Comfort Menu that is most effective at putting patients at ease from about 4 years old and older is Nitrous Oxide Sedation (laughing gas). Nitrous is a mild sedative that can easily be turned up or down and is given through a nose piece. Patients love that they can drive themselves to the dental appointment, relax and breathe in the Nitrous Oxide during their cleaning or restorative work, breathe in oxygen for a few minutes, and then they’re good to go! It’s such a convenient way for patients to feel calmer without having to have someone else drive them to their appointment. Pair Nitrous with noise canceling headphones and some great music (of your choice, of course!) and you have a recipe for comfort – patients love the combo!
