Robert G. Marx, DDS is a lifelong resident of the Kansas City area. He graduated from Oak Park High School and received his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Missouri at Kansas City. He attended the University of Missouri, Kansas City School of Dentistry and graduated in 1977.

Dr. Marx has said he was attracted to dentistry by the fact that dentistry is a service that helps people lead better and more comfortable lives by improving the condition of their teeth and smiles, but also by the strong aesthetic aspect of dentistry. People notice other people’s smiles and dentistry can improve smiles and attractiveness and youthfulness.

Dr. Marx is married to his wife Terri and they have two children. His son is a graphic designer and his daughter has graduated from dental school and joined his practice.

Besides constantly studying and taking courses to improve his ability in the routine areas of dental care, Dr. Marx has always been fascinated by the different areas of dental care including orthodontic treatment, Laser treatment and placement of dental implants. He has taken extensive continuing education and training in those areas. He feels his ability to provide those services has allowed him to develop more complex plans and offer the majority of treatment in one office.
