Marc Zaslow D.D.S.
Dr. Zaslow, recently voted one of Baltimore’s Top Dentists 2016, received his general dental training and Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) at the Northwestern University Dental School in Chicago, Illinois. He then went on to pursue the specialty of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery with an additional four year residency at the New York University Medical Center in New York City. The main training facility was Bellevue Hospital Center which is one of the oldest teaching hospitals in the country. It offered a very diverse experience which covered the full scope of Oral and Maxillofacial surgery, from severe facial trauma to routine dental extractions. After completing his training, Dr. Zaslow returned to Maryland to begin a private practice. He is North East Regional Board Certified and active with continuing education courses every year.
Currently, Dr. Zaslow’s practice is limited to the specialty of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. His training has centered on helping patients re-establish proper dental function through bone grafting and dental implants. While Dr. Zaslow also enjoys most aspects of his specialty, the goals of restoring a great smile and allowing patients to eat without discomfort give him the most satisfaction.
Dr. Zaslow’s journey into the field of dentistry, and more importantly, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, began during his undergraduate years at the University of Maryland. While trying to blend his passions of art and science, the dental profession seemed like the perfect solution. It allowed him to challenge his mind with scientific knowledge while still giving him the opportunity to work with his hands and create art. During dental school, each student completes rotations in all the dental specialties. Dr. Zaslow’s Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery rotation was by far the most rewarding experience of his four years in dental school. The knowledge of the human body was more intense and the surgical aspects challenged his artistic ability. The surgical outcomes for the patients were also very profound. In some cases, as with congenital or traumatic facial deformities, the patient’s outlook on life could be transformed.
During his Oral and Maxillofacial training, Dr. Zaslow had the opportunity to participate in several missions to developing countries such as the Dominican Republic and Columbia. Whether he was repairing cleft lips and palates or completing routine extractions, the experience was invaluable.
When not practicing Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Dr. Zaslow enjoys spending time with his family, playing golf and soccer, and traveling.
