Dr. John S. Markel, DDS

Practicing Since 1978

Turn to an expert with over 40 years of experience in the dental field who enjoys what he does! Educated at the University of Maryland Dental School, and having practiced in Towson and now Millersville, Maryland, Dr. Markel is a dentist people trust...

because Dr. Markel takes time to listen to you and find out what YOUR needs and concerns are. You are not a number or part of an assembly line at Dr. Markel's. There are most always options for your needs and we carefully explain those options to you and make sure you understand any fees before we proceed. 

(And Dr. Markel hates pain, too!)

During this COVID situation, we are following all the recommended CDC and Maryland State Dental Association measures to keep you (and all of us here) safe.
