Dr. Mark Harris decided to become a dentist not only because he enjoys helping people in the profession of health care, but because he enjoys the artistry involved in cosmetic dentistry. He graduated from Brigham Young University in 1998 and received his DDS degree cum laude from Creighton University in Omaha, NE (2002), where he also received numerous awards.
Following dental school, Dr. Harris owned a successful dental practice in Soda Springs, ID, for five years. Although he and his wife and five children enjoyed their time in Idaho, they felt drawn to the Ogden area. In 2008, they moved here.
“I have gotten to know some truly fantastic people here,” Dr. Harris says. “I hope to be able to continue in a tradition of gentle and personal patient care, because that’s what these people deserve.”
Over the past 19 years of private practice, Dr. Harris has spent significant time in continuing his dental education, seeking out advanced studies across the country to stay abreast of the most current treatments available. He provides comprehensive dental care for the entire family. His patients’ comfort is his primary concern, and he treats dental work as an art form.
The Harris family, which includes Mark’s wife, Larisa, and their children, Samuel, Melissa, Marah, Luke, and Olivia, enjoy spending time together. When not working on your teeth, Dr. Harris can be found boating, playing in his band, or watching Utah Jazz basketball games.
