Dr. Mark Falco
Dr. Mark A. Falco graduated from Rutgers Dental School when it was known as the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in 1985. He was a lieutenant in the US Navy whereby he completed his General Practice Residency in Dentistry. Dr. Falco moved to Florida in 1991. He taught classes at Hillsborough Community College and Pasco-Hernando Community College before purchasing his first private practice in Lake County Florida in 1995.
Within the next few years Dr. Falco hosted a daytime radio program on oral health and wrote a distinguished book, The Preservation of Health,
“Managing Carbohydrates intake For Life”. The publishing of his book led Dr. Falco to obtain a Master’s degree in Human Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport. His expertise in cosmetic dentistry opened up channels for him to sponsor and support the Miss Florida program. Dr. Falco became a contributing writer for Pageantry Magazine, the elite magazine of the pageant industry.
Dr. Falco moved to Seminole County and in 2005 developed his present day dental practice known as Smile Design Studio. His passion for good oral health in dentistry has developed into an exceptional preventive care program for his patients. Last year Dr. Falco developed a long awaited Oral Health Maintenance Plan for Long-Term Care Facility residents in our backyard of Seminole County. This well-needed plan has shown to improve the level of dental hygiene care an average of almost 40%in other regions. Utilizing coaching techniques, discussions and feedback with residents and their direct care staff, elevates compliance and reduces the risks of oral infections.
CDA – Treatment Coordinator
I’ve had the pleasure of being part of the Smile Design Studio team since 2016. I enjoy being part of a professional team that provides exceptional dental care, in a calm relaxing atmosphere. I love helping people achieve their healthiest and brightest smiles. When I’m not at work, I enjoy anything outdoors, like running, cycling and paddle boarding. I also enjoy spending time with my fiancé Chris and our 3 dogs.
Certified Registered Dental Hygienist
I grew up in Winter Springs, FL and started my dental career as a Certified Dental Assistant in 2001. My passion as a dental professional can be seen throughout the community and right here in our office. My favorite part of being a hygienist is the positive impact on the health and well being of each individual I serve. I pay close attention to each persons needs and detail on the healing process, which is achieved through education, comfort, and ease. My life long vision is to provide quality and comfort to all patients and individuals seeking dental and overall health. On my personal time I enjoy being with my Husband (car enthusiast) and our 6 year old son who plays T-ball and loves the outdoors. We love traveling, good cuisine, and time at the beach or hanging out in our pool.
Here at Smile Design Studio, Jennifer keeps us organized and on track. She’s also quick with a smile and always has a few minutes to catch up with patients. Jennifer is our insurance specialist and the financial coordinator for all patient treatments. She is the one who handles the new patient scheduling. Her favorite part of her work, Jennifer says, is the warmth she feels when patients walk out of the practice with a great smile.
