Bob Marcus, D.M.D. graduated from the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine in 1993 and completed his General Practice Residency at the VAMC La Jolla, CA.  He maintained a successful cosmetic and family dental practice in Poway (San Diego County), CA, and retired from clinical dentistry in 2019.

Since then, Dr. Marcus has been very busy on several fronts: dental practice "coaching," dental study clubs, and CEREC training.  As a coach, he has worked with practices all over the country helping them streamline systems, reduce stress, and ultimately increase production.  His focus on the psychology of patient interactions, especially with the treatment planning and presentation process, has helped many dentists and their practices move to the next level

Dr. Marcus was an active CEREC Doctors Mentor, is a certified basic and advanced trainer for Patterson, a clinical instructor for CAD/CAM Dentists and has lectured locally, nationally, and internationally on CEREC and related subjects.  He used CEREC technology in his office since the "early days" in 2004.  He estimates that he has milled over a zillion restorations.  

Dr. Marcus is the founder of Kick Your Apps, and app company for dentists.  Their flagship app, DDS GP, has sold over 15,000 copies in 65 countries. This app provides a quick and easy way for dentists to show their patients dental conditions and treatment options.

Dr. Marcus and his wife, Karen, have three amazing (adult) kids: Katie, Matt, and Jon, as well as a grandson, Luke.  They love to take advantage of all that San Diego has to offer, especially spending time hiking and enjoying the perfect weather.
