Meet Mark S Davis, DDS
Why Did He Choose To Become A Dentist?
Dentistry is a unique profession that incorporates dental science along with artistry. It pleases me not only be able to care for my patients medically, but also to help change their self-perception by creating a beautiful and healthy smile for them.
What Is Our Personal And Professional Philosophy?
Caring for my patients needs, one individual at a time, is of utmost importance to me. I believe that I must listen to each patient in order to both help determine and explain what the best treatment options are. My practice is dedicated to establishing relationships with it's patients that are based on respect and trust. I want to not only be your dentist for today, but to remain your dentist over time and to be your family's dentist as well!
What is My Background?
Born in Huntsville, Texas, Dr. Mark Davis began learning about dentistry at an early age. With grand-uncle who was one of the first orthodontists in Texas and a father who is an oral surgeon, he was always comfortable in a dental office. In fact, it wasn't until dental school that he learned that some people are afraid of going to the dentist! After graduating from Southwestern University, the oldest university in Texas, Dr. Mark Davis received his Masters in Molecular Biology at Southern Methodist University. While there, he taught the freshman biology lab and worked on a research team studying the causes of African Sleeping Sickness. Dr. Mark Davis then continued his education at Baylor College of Dentistry, where he earned recognition as the best cosmetic dentist as well as one of the five best clinicians. Dr. Mark Davis did his general practice residency at the VA in Dallas. There he focused on surgical dentistry, including implant placement and restoration, extractions, trauma cases, and severe periodontal disease treatment.
Dr. Mark Davis met his wife, Dr. Monika Davis, at Baylor. After a long friendship and a romantic courtship, they married and moved to Arizona in 2007. Knowing that they wanted to begin their own family, Drs. Mark and Monika Davis had to decide where they wanted to build their life. Because both her brother and her parents already lived in Scottsdale, and because his parents have a second home here as well, the decision was a simple and happy one. With four energetic young children, Drs. Mark and Monika Davis spend most of their free time at the parks, hiking the local trails, or on play-dates. When Dr. Mark Davis has an afternoon or evening out with his friends, he also enjoys playing golf and working on landscaping.
