Mark L. Jesin, DDS, grew up in a large Toronto family with a dentist father, a dental hygienist mother, and even a few uncles in the dental profession. Growing up, dentistry was all around him, and Dr. Jesin’s journey to becoming an oral and maxillofacial surgeon began at an early age during visits to his father’s booming practice where he witnessed his father’s genuine love for treating patients. It wasn’t until Dr. Jesin’s third year of dental school that he realized he wanted to go beyond dentistry to become an oral surgeon. At school, he found himself mesmerized in the operating room, astounded by the incredible synergy of dentistry and medicine in the form of oral and maxillofacial surgery. Dr. Jesin has a strong artistic side as well: he was involved in theater in high school and college, grew up playing the violin, and then studied psychology in his undergrad years. This eclectic background helped shape Dr. Jesin’s ability to empathize with and emotionally connect to his patients — he is known in town as the gentle and soft-spoken oral surgeon, and this is a hat that Dr. Jesin wears with pride! The goal at Advanced Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Studio is for each patient to leave the office having had a distinctly positive dental and surgical experience, and one of the ways Dr. Jesin and his team accomplish this is to show patients that oral surgery does not have to be scary. Outstanding customer service is Dr. Jesin’s passion, and he wants his patients to know that they will be treated like family and supported every step of the way by a team that works together to make the patient experience nothing less than amazing.
Dr. Mark Jesin is a graduate of the University of Toronto School of Dentistry where he graduated with a Doctor of Dental Surgery with honors in 2007.
He completed a hospital-based general practice residency in dentistry at Weil Cornell Medical Center in New York City, and a four-year residency in oral and maxillofacial surgery at Boston University Medical Center.
Dr. Jesin is board-certified in two countries, the United States and Canada, and is a Diplomate of the National Dental Board of Anesthesia. He is certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS).
When Dr. Jesin isn’t at his practice treating patients, he enjoys anything outdoors: hiking, tennis, kayaking, water skiing, and just relaxing in nature with his wife and young daughter. Dr. Jesin has multiple publishing credits in his field and continues his ongoing education to stay on the very cutting-edge of his profession. He is also proud to be involved in charitable activities abroad and in his local community.
