Testimonials
From his Patients

His front and back office are professional and polite and there to make you feel safe and cared for. I highly recommend him to anyone needing oral surgery.

An excellent oral and maxillofacial surgeon. The work gets done with a minimal amount of fuss. He is a DDS and an MD and can provide general anesthesia if needed.

This dentist office so accommodating . My husband had a severe toothache and needed it to be pulled. Called several dentist and no one seemed to be available for at least two weeks. I called the office of mark elder and got an appointment for the next day! Once here the staff was very kind and efficient.

I am so glad I asked my general dentist for a referral other than SmileCare in Santa Rosa for a tooth extraction as SmileCare has to be the worts office I have ever dealt with of any sort of business. Enough about them! Dr. Elder is in my network for my Aetna DMO plan & I chose to go to him 45 minutes out of my way as he had great reviews. I was very happy with the staff & their professionalism. Dr. Elder was great with my procedure & post op appointment. While I hope to never have to have another tooth extracted, I would definitely use this office again.

My friend recommended Dr. Elder to me and I’m so glad she did. It’s been two months since my extraction and root implant — phase one of getting a new back tooth! All went well with the extraction and healing – phew!

Dr. Elder and his staff were kind, efficient and professional. I consulted with two other oral surgeons, but either their staff didn’t act professionally or the estimated quote was extremely too high. I found the perfect combination of everything I was looking for in an oral surgeon at Dr. Elder’s office!
