Caring for Growing Smiles

Get To Know Dr. Ian

Dr. Ian Marion has long been dedicated to his advocacy and craft of creating a positive dental experience for children while also instilling healthy habits that they can take into adulthood.

Dr. Ian received his undergraduate degree at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, followed by his DDS at the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco. He then went on to complete a general practice residency at St. Barnabas hospital in New York City, and a Pediatric Dentistry residency at the University of Washington in Seattle. Additionally, Dr. Ian received a Masters of Science in Dentistry while at the University of Washington.  

After completing residency, Dr. Ian accepted a position as a faculty member at the University of Illinois Chicago where he helped teach the next generation of dentists how to expertly care for children, while also working with local communities to perform dental outreach providing free screenings and treatment to at-risk communities. Despite having traveled across the US, Dr. Ian was born and raised in California, and is excited to be back home taking care of the children in his community.

Dr. Ian is a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, and recipient of their Master Clinician Scholarship. He has advanced training in pediatric dentistry including laser treatments, esthetic crowns, and minimally invasive dentistry.

In his free time, Dr. Ian enjoys hiking, watching Marvel movies, visiting zoos and aquariums, and watching California sports teams.
