Dr. Marvin Berlin knew by age 10 that he wanted to be a dentist. Through college and dental school, and eventually while establishing a thriving, dental practice with “three of his best friends,” he’s never wavered from that dream. “I’m the luckiest man I know,” he said. “I love practicing dentistry, love being in the city of McKinney, and our incredible team members are like one big, happy family. I love my drive to work every morning.”
“If a patient wants something, we find a way to do it,” he explained. “If they need to be seen today—immediately— we do everything we can to make sure that happens. We never want to be about getting the patients to say ‘yes’ to what we want, but about catering to them— offering them everything they need under one roof— full dental care.” That includes dental implants, cosmetic dentistry, root canals, oral surgery, fillings, sedation, Invisalign®, and even treatment for sleep apnea.
Dr. Berlin received his undergraduate degree from The University of Texas at Austin and his doctorate from Baylor College of Dentistry. He is a proud papa to two beautiful daughters, has been happily married for 19 years, and is a deacon at First Baptist Church of McKinney. He enjoys cosmetic dentistry, especially complete smile makeovers.
Few of Dr. Berlin’s patients realize their friendly family dentist worked his way through dental school spinning 45s as a super hip, life-of-the-party, night club disc jockey. (Guess they do now!)
Dr. Matthew Markham enjoys the team atmosphere at McKinney Dentist. “Most of the time a dental emergency is just that— an emergency. Drs. Berlin, Lynch and I share the philosophy that we’re here to serve our patients,” he said. “That means going out of our way to cater to whatever they need, when they need it. Because there are three of us, we’re able to stay open six days a week without anybody being overworked.”
His first experience with mckinneydentist.com was ten years ago when he volunteered at one of their annual “Free Days” where they provide free dental care for hundreds of economically-challenged patients each year. “We hit it off right away and, when they invited me to join them, I didn’t have to think twice.”
Dr. Matthew Markham has been a partner at McKinney Dentist since 2001. Born and raised in Denison, Texas, Dr. Markham has remained true to his Texas roots, attending Austin College and then Baylor College of Dentistry. With a true passion for crafting beautiful smiles, Dr. Markham’s dedication to his patients is evident through the care and concern he expresses for each, and through the individual relationships he builds. Dr. Markham’s number one concern for his patients is comfort. His goal is to ensure that each patient leaves his chair with a smile, inside and out!
On his off days, Dr. Markham is a true sports fan, in particular one of college football and baseball. Don’t ever bring up Notre Dame or the Red Sox, or you’ll never get a word in edgewise! He loves to spend time on the coast with his lovely wife, Francesca, whether boating, sailing or just enjoying the view! Dr. Markham is currently serving as president of the church council at Trinity Methodist Church in Denison, and is very active within the community.
Dr. Jeff Lynch remembers well his childhood dentist. “He was the dad of a friend of mine,” he said. “My family moved a lot and my next dentist was a young guy I could really relate to. They both painted a good picture of the profession for me. Later on I had braces, and had a great orthodontist, as well.
“I think ours is a unique practice environment because all of the partners are friends. Dr. Berlin and I met in dental school 20 years ago and talked about some day practicing together. It keeps things fun for the patients because we’re always joking around. We’re all sports fans, but pull for different teams, and this gets the patients involved in our friendly rivalries. We’re very similar, yet very different, with a range of personalities, experience, and expertise.”
Dr. Lynch received his undergraduate degree from the University of Oklahoma, and his doctorate from Baylor College of Dentistry. He recently was awarded Fellowship status in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI). He’s happily married with three kids. He enjoys dental surgery and handling more complicated cases.
Dr. Lynch remembers well the first root canal he ever performed. “Unlike the quick, painless procedure it is today, back then it took quite a while— and wasn’t always painless. My first root canal patient was on a beautiful young woman who was very patient with the process. I’m happy to report her tooth is still doing well. I know because I married her.” How’s that for a long warranty?
In August 2011, McKinney Dentist added a new member to our staff family, Dr. Aaron Wood. For the past 10 months, Dr. Wood has treated hundreds of patients here and continues to have a lasting impact on the staff and our patients. For those of you who have not had the opportunity to meet him, here’s some information to help you get to know our new dentist!
Dr. Wood was born in Houston, moved to California, Wyoming, and then spent most of his young life growing up in a small town in Utah. He attended college at Brigham Young University where he majored in Chinese. He was thrilled to return to his Texas roots by going to San Antonio for his dental degree.
Dr. Aaron Wood’s #1 goal is to make his patients happy. If they are happy, Dr. Wood is happy. He wants to provide the patient all the dentistry they want, need, and deserve. His philosophy is to treat his patients like family.
