Dr. Claudiu Marin
Dr. Claudiu Marin attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts, graduating in the top 15% of his class. He received his undergraduate degree in Psychology from Tufts, making him an official Double Jumbo! After six years of practice on the East Coast, he and his wife Dr. Sotoodeh decided to relocate to California to be closer to her family and escape those brutal winters.
Five years into his dental career, the Massachusetts Dental Society (MDS) awarded Dr. Marin with the prestigious “10 Under 10 Award” given to the top ten dentists demonstrating excellence in dentistry. He would go on to serve and be elected President of its local chapter, the Hampshire Dental Society, for the next three years.
As a lifelong learner, Dr. Marin is passionate about introducing innovative techniques and technologies to make dentistry better and easier for his patients. His continued professional training includes a fellowship from the International College of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) and certification in CEREC Crowns-in-a-day Dentistry. He has also achieved reconstructive and restorative training from the Spear Institute in Scottsdale, Arizona and has over 150 hours of advanced training in implant, periodontal and grafting procedures, as well as certification in oral conscious sedation through the DOCS institute.
Dr. Marin is one of a small number of clinicians certified to perform the Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation procedure, a unique and non-invasive way of treating gum recession. He is eager to incorporate even more advanced dentistry to the practice including crowns in a day, 3D imaging and digital impression scanning. You can count on Dr. Marin to always be ahead of the curve and provide his patients with the most up to date techniques and materials.
What you may not learn on your first visit with Dr. Marin but might find interesting is that he is fluent in Romanian, Italian, and Bostonian. When he is away from the office he enjoys skiing, running, golfing and hiking with his wife and their dog, Achilles.
