The Evolution of Dance and Beautiful Smiles!

June 30th, 2014

A few weeks ago I received a link to a YouTube video that featured talk-show host Jimmy Fallon with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. It was a segment that was on “The Tonight Show” just before Father’s Day entitled “The Evolution of Dad’s Dancing,” a very funny takeoff on a YouTube favorite, “The Evolution of Dance.” Check out the video here:

What makes it most interesting to our office, staff, and patients is that the star/creator of “The Evolution of Dance” is our very own patient, Judson Laipply, a native Clevelander. Judson has been featured on the “Today Show,” “Good Morning America,” “Ellen,” and many other shows with his wonderful routine. In case you’ve never seen it:

We congratulate him on his success and wish him well. (He does have a beautiful smile!).

Happy Father’s Day to Our Dads!

June 17th, 2014

Next Sunday, our NBC/WKYC “Golden Opportunities” segment features smile makeovers for the men in our practice. These makeovers, similar to the ones shown on the ABC show “Extreme Makeovers” by cosmetic dentist Bill Dorfman, include both simple and complex procedures, including Zoom teeth whitening, bonding, porcelain veneers and porcelain crowns. Most of the porcelain labwork was done by two dental laboratories that we use – Los Angeles-based DaVinci Dental Studios and Cleveland’s own Dental Ceramics.

If you’re a dad – or mother – and would like to see what we can do for your smile, please contact Karin or Diane at 440-461-1003, and they’ll be glad to assist you!

Cleveland Dentist Providing Botox and Dermal Fillers

May 14th, 2014

On a number of occasions, I’ve been asked by patients, both men and women, when I might be able to give them Botox and Juviderm, especially since I give so many injections on a daily basis (“painlessly,” they say). In any case, having studied and received certification through the American Academy of Facial Esthetics (AAFE),  we are now able to provide Botox and dermal fillers to our patients!

For more information, please call Karin or Wendy at 1-440-461-1003, and they’ll be able to work with you.

Please keep up the effort and wonderful comments.

Exceeding Patient Expectations [Testimonials]

May 1st, 2014

Exceeding Patient Expectations

Dr. Marsh and his staff are exceptionally kind and professional. I’m very impressed with their organization, the attention to detail, and their strong drive to exceed patient expectations. The results of their work are amazing. If you are considering cosmetic dental work, I highly recommend Dr. Marsh and his staff.


One of the Best Decisions I Ever Made

I was sent to Dr. Marsh in 2006 for veneers on my upper teeth. I was anxious about going to the dentist because of a few bad experiences but Dr. Marsh eliminated my fears. Veneers are still one of the best decisions I have ever made. I went back to Dr. Marsh to have my veneers checked up on and fell in love all over again. You couldn’t ask for a better environment. From the friendly staff to the way Dr. Marsh treats you, it made me glad I found them. Total life changer for me.


Seamless Veneers

We are thrilled with Lauren’s smile! The veneers are seamless. One would never know that they weren’t part of her childhood! After ten years of waiting, we couldn’t imagine a better result! Thanks so much to you, and please extend our gratitude to your exemplary staff.

Many, many thanks, and all the best.

Lauren, Kathy and Bob

The Cleveland Indians and Dentistry

April 24th, 2014

I recently had the opportunity, on WKYC Channel 3′s “Golden Opportunities,”  to discuss the similarities between dental care and baseball, highlighting the Cleveland Indians in both Cactus League Spring Training and the regular season, including the Indians’ home opener. Having attended a few days of Spring Training in Arizona this March and the opener, I got to see both minor and major league prospects; in dentistry, we can make a difference with both minor and major league changes, depending upon a patient’s needs, budget, and time.

Using Major League Baseball as a metaphor for dental care, we talked about planning, having the basics in place, and executing to achieve excellence. We hope that, like the Indians, we’ll have a good year and many good years in the future. Our World Series is the happiness on our patients’ faces when they have an outcome that brings them many smiles!

“You’ve Got Mail” Voice Actor Retires from WKYC

April 21st, 2014


You might not have heard of Elwood Edwards, but if you’re over the age of 20, you heard his voice way more often than you realize. Edwards, 64, was the voice behind AOL’s “You’ve Got Mail,” and anytime you logged into your AOL account he was the one that greeted you.

Twenty-five years ago Edwards recorded four phrases for AOL, never realizing how iconic they were to become:

  • You’ve Got Mail
  • Welcome
  • File’s Done
  • Goodbye

I’ve come to know Edwards over the years as I’ve made regular appearances on WKYC’s “Golden Opportunities” – he’s a cameraman and makes graphics for the Channel 3 website – and would like to congratulate him on his retirement from WKYC Channel 3. Announcing his retirement, he was then featured on The Today Show, an organization for which he hopes to do voiceovers.

Congratulations on retirement, Elmore!

You have so changed my life! I’m the happiest I’ve ever been.

I’ve had so many people comment on I have a nice smile…others I haven’t seen in years can’t quite pinpoint what’s different and they comment on my hair, weight, skin…

You didn’t tell me one of the benefits of all my dental work was I was going to lose 27 pounds!! I eat so much healthier now…brush and floss all the time, and anyone who will listen I tell them the same thing…brush and floss.

Dr. Marsh, you are truly the best!! Thanks for everything!

Thank you,

Stains Can Be Pains

March 25th, 2014

Recently, a patient who has a gorgeous smile mentioned that her teeth are staining quite a bit.  When asked about her oral habits -eating and drinking – she said that she became a “juicer” when she bought a Vitamix and now eats/drinks primarily vegetables. Though she has porcelain veneers and crowns, they, too, can stain extrinsically (stains on the outside, not on the inside).

This was easily remedied by having her teeth polished by one of our hygienists using a special porcelain polishing paste every two to three months; similarly, coffee and tea can produce similar extrinsic stains that can be eliminated. Most at-home toothpastes, including Arm and Hammer, Crest and Colgate can help, but are insufficient for many discolorations.

In-office bleaching with Zoom teeth whitening and maintenance with Nite White gel does help. If we can help or answer your questions, please give us a call! (440) 461-1003
