Dr. Marc DeBerardinis was born on the East Coast, and has been living and practicing in Northern California for over 14 years. He and his wife, Leah, a dentist and Sonoma county native, enjoy the area for all it has to offer. Dr. “D” and his wife have two young daughters, and feel fortunate to be raising them in such a magnificent place.

Dr. D. graduated Summa Cum Laude from Temple University School of Dentistry in Pennsylvania, where he received his dental degree in 1996. He then went on to earn his Masters degree and Orthodontic certificate at the University of Oklahoma in 1998. In addition to practicing orthodontics in Healdsburg and Petaluma, Dr. D. was also an Assistant Clinical Professor of Orthodontics at UCSF School of Dentistry prior to starting a family. His involvement in academics allows first-hand exposure to the latest clinical research and techniques. As an attending faculty member, Dr. D. supervised the treatment of orthodontic patients by the residents, and helped them along their path in becoming future orthodontists.

When not practicing orthodontics, Dr. D spends most of his time with his family, and occasionally finds time for snowboarding or a round of golf.

"I consider myself very lucky to be practicing orthodontics in Sonoma county. As an orthodontist, I am able to treat such a wide range of patients. It is fascinating watching our younger patients grow up during the course of their treatment, and our adult patients always add excitement to each day. Our team always tries to take the extra step necessary to provide top-notch care, and I truly feel that we are all rewarded every day, when we’re creating beautiful smiles!" -- Dr. D.
