Mark Herman, DMD
Hello & thank you for visiting my website. I am originally from West Orange, NJ, but I have been living in South Florida with my wife & two kids since 1999. I provide general & cosmetic dentistry at my Delray Beach office, of which I have been the proud owner since I moved to Florida. You could say that I was born to be a dentist—It’s been in my family for generations, starting with my dad, two brothers & a sister-in-law, who are all dentists, & a sister who is a hygienist. Although my son is still very young, he’s already talking about taking over the family business one day to carry on our legacy.
I graduated Pre-Dental from the University of Miami in 1985, & in 1990 I earned my Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry degree (DMD) from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine.
Immediately following dental school, I opened my first practice in Kearny, New Jersey where I oversaw the administrative & operational management of these facilities, & I was practicing full-time dentistry as well as being responsible for the ongoing quality & integrity of the office.
Striving to always further my education, I have attended a myriad of continuing education courses, including, but not limited to, oral surgery, endodontics, restorative dental techniques, periodontal surgery & courses in advanced administrative management. Thank you considering me as your dentist. You have my word that you will be treated with courtesy, professionalism & integrity with the warmth & friendliness of a place you’ve already been to time & time again.

I truly enjoy working in the dental field because it gives me a chance to improve the overall health of my patients, as well as improving their smiles & helping them to be happy & more confident. As a General Dentists, I pride myself on staying up-to-date on the latest dental industry trends & providing the best & highest quality care to my patients. I received my first dental degree in 2003 at Pontificia Universidad Catolica Madre Y Maestra, Dominican Republic. I went on to receive my Doctorate of Dental Medicine at NOVA Southeastern University, in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
My goal is to create a trusting relationship with each patient so that I can understand their needs, address any questions & concerns & guide them through their dental treatment. I provide personalized, high-quality dental care, & treat each patient as if they were a member of my family. I want to build a comfortable & lasting relationship with my patients. I listen to the individual needs of each patient & truly take the time to answer their treatment questions. Speaking Spanish fluently allows me to communicate efficiently with the Spanish-speaking community. It is important to me to make sure each patient is comfortable & satisfied. Educating my patients is also very important to me; I like to make sure they understand what they’re getting & why it will improve their lives. I hope to give you, & every patient, the best experience & treatment plan possible.
