Philosophy Dr. Marion and his staff treat all patients comprehensively because of their knowledge that the mouth is a window to the rest of the body. All dentistry they provide is at one with nature; that is, anything prosthetic that is placed in the mouth, should look as though it grew there, should function in harmony with what still exists, and should feel like it is a part of the patient.
