ClevelandSmiles Named One of Cleveland Magazine’s Top Dentists!

August 26th, 2014

We were notified by Cleveland Magazine that we were once again named as a “Top Dentist” of Cleveland. It’s especially gratifying in that it is based “on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which hundreds of dentists and specialists throughout Northeast Ohio cast thousands of votes on the abilities of other dentists.”  The list will be published in the magazine’s annual Best of Cleveland issue in October.

It is a credit to the staff and our patients at ClevelandSmiles that we were honored! Thank you everyone!

Get the Results You Want, When You Want

August 19th, 2014

We’ve recently had a number of patients who wanted their teeth to look great for an upcoming event but didn’t have a lot of time to get the treatment done, which involved porcelain veneers and/or crowns. Fortunately, we work with a number of wonderful dental labs to achieve the results that we want. In Cleveland, we will generally use both Dental Ceramics of Richfield or Roe Dental Laboratory; both do superb work and will expedite their labwork if we need them to, even within a week’s time. We had a patient drive up from North Carolina last month who stayed from Tuesday to Tuesday to get fourteen veneers done. Nationally, we use both DaVinci Dental Lab of Los Angeles and Glidewell Laboratories, who also do superior work and will accommodate us if we have special time concerns.

Please let us know if you have certain needs, whether it’s for a wedding or class reunion, from Los Angeles to North Carolina to Cleveland!

Back-to-School Tips for Keeping Your Teeth Clean

August 12th, 2014

As we grow closer to the school year here in Northeast Ohio, we thought we might give some dental tips to our patients, friends, and followers.

Whether you are a student or teacher, it’s a good idea to come in for a check up/exam, cleaning, and X-rays before the school year begins. You can contact Karin or Diane at 1-440-461-1003, and they’ll be glad to assist you with an appointment. Please remember that we begin each day as early as 7:00 a.m. (We’ll even have the coffee and orange juice ready for you!)

If any of your family members play sports in school, college, or the NFL or NBA, they should consider wearing a mouth guard. Even LeBron wears one! A sportsguard, which can be made in the colors of the school, can protect teeth when they are jarred. In fact, one of the worst dental accidents I have seen involved a volleyball player who avulsed (i.e. broke out) her front two teeth catching the bottom of the net; though we were able to replant them to keep them in her mouth, both needed root canal treatment and later veneers due to the darkening of the teeth.

It’s also not a bad idea to pack floss, or a “flosscard,” with your lunch to keep teeth free from debris. And while you’re packing, you might include a bottle of water – just make sure it has fluoride in it to protect the enamel. Dannon has a small bottle that contains fluoride that we take with us on our trips.

Lastly, if you want to have the brightest smile in school, call us and set up an appointment for a Zoom teeth whitening. In an hour and a half, you can get a brighter, more beautiful smile!

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!).

Welcoming Diane Ryan!

June 23rd, 2014

Joining Karin and Wendy at the front desk will be Diane Ryan. Diane, who has over 20 years of experience in the dental field in both chairside/surgical assisting and office roles, will be working with our team to schedule appointments, process and maximize our patients’ dental insurance, provide personalized phone contacts, and many other duties critical to your positive experience in our office.

Please welcome Diane and say hello when you have the opportunity. We’re delighted to have her as part of our team – and you will be, too!

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.

Voted One of the Top Five Dental Offices In Ohio!

May 8th, 2014

We’ve been honored by Angie’s List as a 2013 winner of the Angie’s List award, the second consecutive year that we participated and the second year we’ve won! In fact, we’re among the top 5% of businesses in Cleveland in customer service and one of the top five dental offices in the state of Ohio!

It takes a village, so we want to thank our entire dental team as well as our support staff, including laboratories like Dental Ceramics, Roe Dental Lab, DaVinci Dental Lab, and Galaxy Lab; we are also thankful for the contributions of our vendors, including Benco, Schein, and Smartpractice for keeping our supplies and equipment current.

Most of all, we’d like to thank our patients for their support and taking the time to log onto or write to Angie’s List to tell them about our office. Additionally, we appreciate our patients taking the time to sing our praises on sites like Facebook, Instagram, Twuitter, Yelp, and other review or social sites! 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!
