In 2009, Marianna graduated from the University of Medicine and Dentistry, Newark, New Jersey, and practiced for 10 years in NYC before moving to Tucson in 2019.
Marianna strives for clinical excellence which shows in the quality of her work and providing calm and comfortable visits for her patients. Ongoing education is very important to Marianna and she is always working to be at the forefront of dentistry’s proven best practices and procedures. Her prior assisting experience with smile makeovers, implants, and full-mouth reconstructions makes her an excellent clinical partner with Dr. Raymond and the Skyline Dental team.
