Mark has been serving the Pittsburgh community for over 30 years. His profession as a dentist allows him to care for people in his everyday life, but outside of his Wexford dental practice he offers his services as well. Mark regularly volunteers as a healthcare provider to the greater community through his volunteer work with Catholic Charities in Pittsburgh in which he provides free dental care to individuals in need. This spring he will travel to Mexico as part of an annual mission trip in coordination with Youth With a Mission (YWAM) that he’s made since 2004. During the weeklong trip he will offer dental services to people in the impoverished and often dangerous city of Juarez, many of whom have never had a dental visit in their lives. Away from the dental world, Mark is active in his parish, St. Alphonsus Church. He has been a cantor there for many years and volunteers regularly in parish events including the fall Harvest Home dinner, the Lenten fish fry and the annual men’s retreat.
