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 now his family has also relocated to Marin, escaping the brutal East Coast 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.
Dr. Marin considers himself a life long learner, passionate about 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), certification in CEREC Crown-in-a-day Dentistry, reconstructive and restorative training from the Spear Institute in Scottsdale, Arizona, 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 also one of the few 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.
Dr. Marin is a member and fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, a member of the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, Marin County Dental Society and active in the Spear Study Club.
What you may not learn on your first visit with Dr. Marin but find interesting is that he is fluent in Romanian, Italian and Bostonian. When he is away from the office he enjoys skiing, running, golfing, mountain biking, hiking and exploring Marin. Lately however, fatherhood is his newest and most exciting venture and he’s enjoying sharing his many hobbies with his adventurous and precocious little boy, Milan. Like father like son!
