Dr. Jason Marks and Dr. Jennifer Marks

Dr. Jason Marks, DDS and Dr. Jennifer Marks, DDS began dating in dental school in 2001. They were married in April of 2005. At the beginning of 2008, they fulfilled their dream of opening their own dental office together. They also had their first child, Marin, a month later.

Both doctors are members of the American Dental Association, the North Carolina Dental Society, and the Buncombe County Dental Society. Dr. Jennifer Marks, DDS is also an affiliate member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. They attend continuing education conferences throughout the year to keep them abreast of the ever-changing technologies and clinical techniques in dentistry.

The doctors enjoy spending time with their 14-year old daughter, 11-year old son, and their dog, Saucy. They love hiking, camping, running, golf and tennis.
