How we are unique

We Make Dentistry Different

"Nice, Neighborly, Professional People Who Care."

That's how one of our patients described Marion Dental Associates. Six short words that pretty much describes the entire staff, and our hometown business philosophy.

Doctors David Hypes and Tim Chase grew up here. They understand most people don't look forward to a dentist visit. Folks want to get the most advanced dental care while be honestly treated like a friend. No sales hype, pressure or financial surprises.

For 57 years, that's what we have strived to provide everyday.

But don't confuse experience with set in our ways. New technologies that enhance dentistry and provide a more comfortable, safer, faster (and affordable) experience for our patients is exciting. It's why we were the first to embrace the CEREC state-of-the-art computer-aided method of creating precisely-designed, color-matched, and highly durable ceramic restorations (fillings, crowns, and veneers) right in our office.

Get a Second Opinion

"The recommendation I received sounded more like a sales pitch than a treatment plan".

We hear that a lot. If the complicated and expensive dental diagnoses you got elsewhere made you uncomfortable, come in and see us.

Our goal is what's best for you, not our bottom line. We listen when you describe your situation, make a thorough examination, and give you our recommendation in plain English. If you want to go to another dentist for your care, that's fine. We are happy to help you feel more at ease.

Refreshingly different? Well, not really at Marion Dental Associates, this is the way we have practiced dentistry for over five decades. We are a small-town dental practice, not a national chain.
