Meet Dr. Mark Porter
In my profession, I have the opportunity to blend science and art together to change people’s lives for the better. I am blessed to treat and interact with so many different people and help them to achieve their dental health goals. I try to make my patients as comfortable as possible; dentistry doesn’t have to be scary or painful!
I attended the University of Texas at Austin where I received my BBA degree. I then continued on to the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio where I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery.
To stay abreast of new technology and current techniques, continuing education is a must. It’s important to me to know that I’m providing my patients with the best treatment possible. I participate in the Seattle Study Club, Kois Continuum, Robbins/Rouse Aesthetic Institute, and Cerec Advanced Courses, just to name a few.
Outside the Office
I am a native of San Antonio and have resided here for over 30 years. My wife’s name is Lauri and we have two children, Erin and Shane, 2 family dogs and my Great Dane named Takota. In my leisure time I enjoy running, swimming, cycling, skiing, hiking, and kayaking. I also participate in triathlons and have done helicopter skiing in Alaska! The beauty and quietness there is amazing. My community is very important to me, and I regularly participate in the San Antonio District Dental Society’s Mission of Mercy.
