About Us

Chapel Hill Dental Care – Joseph G Marcius DDS has been providing in-house IV sedation dentistry and implant therapies for over 25 years. Founded in 1979, our open floor plan Akron dentist office is tailored to facilitate a calm, relaxing experience for each one of our guests and their families.

Although we provide comprehensive dental care, our primary focus is addressing the needs of individuals with:

  • Complex cases
  • Special needs
  • A history of traumatic dental experiences
  • Dental phobia/anxiety

Over 70 family dentists refer their patients to Dr. Joe for IV sedation services. We have a fun and outgoing team to help you get through your concerns and fears. Our furthest patient has come from Taiwan, but most are from the outlying Northeast Ohio and Pennsylvania areas.

Visiting Us Is Different

Most dental offices book multiple patients at the same time, with the doctor moving from room to room. At Chapel Hill Dental Care – Joseph G Marcius DDS, we arrange to have Dr. Joe treat one patient at a time, often spending up to four or five hours with each person to complete their entire case in one visit. Thanks to advanced sedation techniques, the patient can relax throughout the entire process!

Once you arrive, help yourself to a cup of freshly brewed coffee. You can even feel free to bring along your own music and earbuds, or we can provide some for you to borrow. We have a warm, inviting and spacious office with lounge chairs for your comfort and fountains in our “living room” atmosphere. Warm blankets and neck pillows are available as well. We also have two employees who are fluent in ASL.

We love building relationships with our patients and friends. We take the time to listen in order to find out what our patient’s needs and desires are. We provide extensive and thorough exams where Dr. Marcius then sits eye to eye with his patients to discuss his findings and treatment options.

The Technology Behind Our Techniques

Skill and experience are essential, but advanced technology takes your care an additional step above and beyond routine dentistry. At Chapel Hill Dental Care – Joseph G Marcius DDS, we implement the use of state-of-the-art approaches to managing more complex cases.

Some of the investments and procedures we make available to our patients include:

Diode Lasers — Dr. Joe has utilized a laser for soft tissue procedures ever since it was approved for use in dentistry.

iCat Scanners — From 3D imaging and computer guided implant placement to screening for carotid blockage, this CT equipment saves both smiles and lives. It also ensures that your implant procedure is accurate and supportive or rapid healing.

Intraoral Cameras — You see what we do, thanks to high resolution virtual tours of your mouth. We also use low-radiation digital x-ray equipment.

Oral DNA Screening and Oral CDx — Sophisticated saliva analysis allows us to assess the true underlying bacteria and pathogens inside of your mouth, screen for viruses and even oral cancer. If diseased or pathogenic tissues are noted, a biopsy is collected for smear analysis.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatments — Using your own blood plasma and growth factors, PRP treatments accentuate bone grafting techniques for optimal support of dental implants.
