Meet Your Dentist

Mark Brannon, DDS

Mark Brannon, DDS, was born in Tucson and graduated from Arizona State University in 1977. He then moved to Texas and the Baylor College of Dentistry, graduating with a Doctor of Dental Surgery in 1980. Dr. Brannon received his Texas Dental Board license in 1981 and Arizona Dental Board license shortly after. Returning to Arizona, Dr. Brannon opened his first private practice on 44th Street in Phoenix. He has been in private practice continually for nearly 40 years.

Dr. Brannon is a member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Central Arizona Dental Society, American Dental Association, and Arizona Dental Association. He has a passion for lifelong learning, staying up-to-date on dental research, scientific findings, and the latest breakthroughs. Dr. Brannon is especially excited about recent innovations in implant dentistry and digital dental solutions. His goal is providing the highest caliber of dentistry possible for every patient.

The same love of fixing things that inspired Mark to become a dentist led to his hobby of restoring historic racing cars. And, the competitive nature that motivated him to open his own practice meant it wasn’t long before he was racing those beauties, winning four championships – two Indy and two National.
