After several years of practicing as a general dentist Marcus and his family moved to Bangor, Maine where he completed two years of specialty training in Pediatric Dentistry. Marcus and his wife, Miriam, are the parents of four children and enjoy traveling and introducing their children to new cultures. They often joke that though they are “from away”, Chael, their youngest child is a true Mainer, having been born at Eastern Maine Medical Center. Marcus is an avid fan of all music that is blue, i.e. Blues, Bluegrass, and Blue Seas (Jimmy Buffett).
Quote from the doctor: “Our family lucked out when my residency training brought us to Maine. When we came here our children were 3, 5, 7, and unborn. In the two years we spent here we fell in love with the place and the people. When my residency was finished we thought going back closer to home was the best thing for our family, but we were wrong. After only two years Maine had become home to us and our children. We are truly grateful to be back in this community and look forward to many more summers and winters here at home.”
