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.
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.

Both my son and I have been seen by this office and would totally recommend this doctor!!! He is very friendly and kind with no pressure. The office staff helps with a discount if there is one available. The doctor was amazing.I had to have a tooth pulled and he was gentle and talked me through it and was very patient and understanding. Thank you so much!
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!
and passion for what he does
