Meet Dr. Pukenas

Marc J. Pukenas, DMD, FAGD

I believe that dental medicine is an integral cornerstone of the healthcare profession. Possessing the knowledge and skills to diagnose and treat oral diseases is a great responsibility that has led me to dedicate my professional life to treating such conditions, resolving problems, reversing damage, and restoring teeth and gums to the healthiest possible state. In addition, I help to educate all my patients, providing them with the practical daily guidelines necessary to maintaining good oral health.  For me, the most exciting part about dentistry is being able to improve a patient’s self-confidence by changing their smile.  A beautiful smile transcends all languages. 

Education and Experience

FAGD:  A general dentist who is a "Fellow" in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD) has been recognized by other general dentists as a leader and exemplifies to other dentists the importance of quality continuing dental education. To earn the FAGD, a dentist must complete a minimum of 500 continuing dental education credit hours, pass a comprehensive exam and have been an AGD member for three continuous years.  Dr. Marc received this award at the Academy of General Dentistry's Annual Meeting in 2013 in Nashville, TN.  Only 7% of general dentists have attained this award. 

Professional Affiliations

Outside the Office

I am originally from Florence, NJ, and currently reside in Ventnor City. I enjoy studying world languages, exercising, running on the beach with my dog Benny, socializing with my family and friends, and traveling abroad, when time permits. In addition, I am involved in my community through Coastal Volunteers in Medicine, a non-profit organization that provides free healthcare to the underprivileged population in Southern New Jersey.
