Meet the Doctor

Dr. Kathryn Marks was born and raised in Charlevoix, Michigan. Her grandparents set up roots in Spring Lake in 1947 allowing Dr. Kathryn to visit and fall in love with the area. Dr. Marks met her husband, Keith, while attending Michigan State (GO GREEN!) for her undergraduate studies. Before they were even married Kathryn and Keith visited the Muskegon/Grand Haven area and promised when they settled down, this would be their home. They fell in love with the deep sandy beaches, sunsets on Lake Michigan, and friendly people. Having so much family in the area, and being so close to both sets of parents, it was an easy choice. 

Dr. Kathryn Marks and her family have been out of the state for the last ten years traveling. First she completed dental school at University of Pittsburgh where she earned top honors. Then she met the challenge of boot camp and joined the prestigious ranks of the United States Air Force as a Captain working as a dentist on our troops. Following her military service, Dr. Kathryn Marks pursued her dream of building smiles and completed the rigorous orthodontic program at the University of Louisville where she also received her Masters in dentistry, as well.

Now that Dr. Kathryn Marks and her husband who is formerly a high school English teacher and now author, have been blessed with their adorable son, they have taken the leap and returned to their home. The whole Marks family is excited to be back to Norton Shores and opening Marks Orthodontics!
