Bellingham Pediatric Dentistry proudly announces the addition of Dr. Marc Horton, DMD to its pediatric dentistry practice. A native of Bellevue, Wash., Dr. Marc joins owner Dr. Sawyer Negro, DDS, MSD in providing full-service care to the families of Bellingham and the surrounding area.
“I am thrilled to be joining the Bellingham Pediatric Dentistry team,” said Dr. Marc. “The practice has a remarkable commitment to patient satisfaction and excellence in pediatric dental care. I was especially attracted to the team’s commitment to innovation in its facility, technologies and services deployed for the benefit of its patients, providing them with a foundation for a lifetime of good dental health.”
“Dr. Marc and I trained at the same residency program at the University of Washington and Seattle Children’s Hospital,” said Dr. Sawyer. “He shares our commitment to providing the exceptional, compassionate care that is central to our practice’s mission. I am so excited for our families to benefit from his experience and talent.”
Dr. Marc received his undergraduate degree from Boston College. He holds a master’s degree from the University of Washington School of Public Health, and earned his dental degree at Boston University. He went on to pursue pediatric training at the University of Washington and Seattle Children’s Hospital, and completed his pediatric residency in June 2019. Dr. Horton is a Fellow of the Royal College of Canadian Dentists and is Board Eligible as a specialist in the United States.
Dr. Marc’s passion for Pediatric Dentistry was fostered during a rotation at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) during his general practice residency, along with other important experiences in his training. “I found, during my training serving both adult and pediatric patients, that I especially enjoyed working with children and their families—knowing that these early, formative experiences with dentistry could truly impact their lives and overall health for years to come,” said Dr. Marc. “In my day-to-day, I ask myself questions like: If this patient were my child, what would I want for them? Given my knowledge about the child and their family, what is in their best interest? Providing patients and their families confidence in their treatment, coupled with knowledge and information to give them healthy smiles for life, is what motivates me.”
When he’s not counting teeth, Dr. Marc enjoys spending time with his family, running, hiking, camping, and rooting for the Sounders.
