Roger Marcellin, DDS
Welcome to our practice! I have been practicing dentistry for more than 30 years and have enjoyed every minute of it! I love the combination of art and science in dentistry. The challenge of providing excellent dentistry and the satisfaction of meeting that challenge make each day different and exciting.
Equally, I love the opportunity to develop wonderfully rich relationships with my patients over the many years I’ve been in practice, and enjoy partnering with them to achieve optimal health. My team and I have created an atmosphere full of laughter where everyone feels comfortable and knows they’re in good hands. We all truly care about each and every person that comes into the office.
Education and Continuing Education
I attended Virginia Commonwealth University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology in 1978. Then I continued on to the Medical College of Virginia, where I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 1982. I take a diverse curriculum of continuing education in both clinical and business areas. My staff and I keep up to date with the many advances in clinical dentistry in order to provide high-tech treatments and give our patients the level of customer service they desire. I have always felt that a commitment to continuous education is necessary to fulfill my obligation to provide optimal care for my patients.
