Markiewicz Dental is a family owned, operated, and oriented dental practice that Dr. Anthony Markiewicz opened in 1988. Like his father, Dr. David is committed to the pursuit of excellent and exquisite dentistry. His goal is to be such a compassionate and qualified dentist that patients begin to love their visits to Markiewicz Dental.
Dr. David graduated from the University of Illinois College of Dentistry in 2019. His quest for more knowledge immediately led him to the prestigious Spear Institute, where he received advanced training in facially generated smile design, occlusion, and airway dentistry. Dr. David is also an active member in the American Dental Association, Illinois State Dental Association, Chicago Dental Society, Academy of General Dentistry, and the Elite Dental Group. Because of his desire to provide patients with the highest quality care, Dr. David prioritizes continuing education and considers himself a life-long learner. He is currently working towards becoming a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentists.
Dr. David’s desire to give his patients the very best has kept his schedule busy. Since joining Markiewicz Dental in 2019, Dr. David has received consistent 5 star reviews from his patients. As the science and art of dentistry moves forward, Dr. David is dedicated to being at the forefront. But he knows that personalized and thoughtful care is the most important quality in treating people. Dr. David aims to make all his dental work both beautiful and functional.
Research suggests that nearly 75% of all children and adults experience some sort of dental anxiety. Dr. David is motivated to help patients with dental anxiety get the treatment that they need in a comfortable and calm environment. At Markiewicz Dental, he uses state-of-the-art technology along with an empathetic and compassionate chair-side manner to provide quality and comfortable dental care.
In an effort to broaden his reach and help those with dental anxiety, Dr. David authored a children’s book titled, “Dentists are Monsters.” Published in 2020, it’s a story told through the lens of Tony, a newly erupted tooth in the mouth. Soon after joining the mouth, the other teeth begin telling Tony terrifying stories about the dentist. It is only until Tony works up the courage to visit the dentist that he learns the rumors are not true. Dr. David frequently visits local schools and libraries in the area to read the book and educate children on what they should expect at their regular dental visits.
