Meet Dr. Mark Eckler
Changing people's lives is amazing! Hearing our patients tell us that we have helped them have a healthy smile that they use with confidence every day is gratifying. As a certified orthodontist and son of a certified orthodontist with over 40 years of experience, I try to remember that each of our patients' needs and desires are unique. It is my goal to treat each and every patient like they are a member of my own family.
My dental education was received at the University of Western Ontario School of Dentistry, where I graduated from in 1993. I attended McGill University Multi-Disciplinary Residency Program before continuing on to the St. Louis University's Graduate Orthodontic Program in 1997.
I not only continually strive to take continuing education courses to stay current in all areas of dentistry focusing on orthodontics but I also provide the dental community with continuing education courses on customer service and preventative orthodontics in an attempt to provide our mutual patients with the best treatments and service we possibly can.
My wife, Sharon, and I dated in high school, and 16 years later we found each other again. Our daughters are most precious and, like the parents of our younger patients, we'd do anything for them! They have held the annual "Jaime and Alexandra's Lemonade Stand" fundraiser for the homeless since 2009. We also have a dog, Hank who was rescued at the Humane Society and has become a very important part of our family. Dedicating time to my children and family is paramount and working with my father, Gord, continues to be a fantastic experience. Believe it or not, I've ran two marathons, am a certified downhill ski instructor, have taken up hockey again after a 34 year hiatus and I have conquered Mount Kilimanjaro!
