Dr. Marl IatiDr. Iati's style has been called relaxed and comforting, his skills have been described as artistic and detailed, and these are just a few of the designations given to the area's finest cosmetic and restorative dentist. His election to a 4-year term to the Board of Directors of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) clearly defines his role as a leader in the field of cosmetic dentistry.

Dr. Iati brings the panache and quality of the big city to Akron. His practice is focused on cosmetic, reconstructive, TMJ and facial rejuvenation, yet he is experienced in all facets of general dentistry. He offers digital X-rays, laser cavity detection, computerized TMJ diagnosis and treatment (neuromuscular dentistry), and computerized anesthetic delivery for pain free injections. For relaxation, Dr. Iati offers in-room flat screen televisions, satellite radio, paraffin hand dips and a warm towel finish sending you refreshed after your visit.

Botox and Juvederm treatments (FDA approved procedures) are also a part of Dr. Iati's practice. In addition to aesthetic improvements, Botox is also indicated for the treatment of migraines and TMJ. Patients can experience virtual painless dermafiller, because he anesthetizes the area prior to the procedure. Historically, patients had already been coming to Dr. Iati to be numbed prior to having dermafiller procedures elsewhere. Dr. Iati provides both services.

Dr. Iati is involved in numerous charitable activities and organizations in the community, such as, the Chamber of Commerce and a fourth degree Knights of Columbus.
