Catherine A. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had been looking for the right dentist in LA for years and had settled for one that was close to home and just ok until I needed some serious work done (implant, three crowns, temporary prosthesis tooth). A friend referred me to Dr. Baldwin Marchack and I can say my search is over. The crowns he constructed fit perfectly and look like they are my natural teeth. It’s so hard to tell which ones are fake! He is a skilled artist in cosmetic dentistry (a perfectionist who does it right the first time) and is also now my family’s regular dentist. Dr. Marchack has a laid back demeanor which puts me at ease at normally anxious dental visits. The staff are all kind and helpful, ready to tend to your every need. His office is located in Pasadena, which is 40 min away from where I live but well worth the drive. Easy to park

Five stars! (Only because I can’t give more) As a new patient, I was welcomed to the world of skilled professionals who don’t treat you as “just another patient for the day”. A place where personal touch matters. While the doctor will patiently explain to you the treatment plan, the staff makes sure that someone, as terrified by dentists as I am, will feel comfortable and will be willing to visit again. As for the current COVID-19 situation, I couldn’t be more satisfied with the measures that they had taken – from the high level of sanitation and being properly covered in PPE, to the smallest details that I would never consider worrying about (such as the option to pay in advance to minimize my contact with other patients). Pasadena Prosthodontics is a place that combines excellence with enjoyment.

Dr. Chris is literally the best doctor I’ve had in my entire life, hands down!  His technical skills are phenomenal and his bedside manner is wonderful!  I love everyone in this practice:  the front desk is super friendly and helpful, the hygienists are excellent, and Amber, Dr. Chris’ assistant extraordinaire, is lovely.  I came to this practice with a severe dentist-phobia after having a terribly botched and nightmarish crown procedure elsewhere.  Dr. Chris spent the next year doing several procedures to fix my awful teeth and botched crown, always with extreme care and attention to my fears and anxieties.  Every procedure was pain free and resulted in an excellent outcome.  I couldn’t be happier with this practice!  A+++!

Going to the dentist does not get any better than this in fact my experience with Dr. Christopher Marchack and his staff exceeded my expectations in so many ways.  First and most importantly, I felt very well taken care of from the moment I stepped into the office and throughout the procedure.  Each step of the procedure was explained thoroughly by Dr. Marchack and his wonderful assistant Amber.    Secondly, the results of the restoration are truly amazing! Raymond, the lab tech has an incredible eye for matching color to existing teeth.  Even my hygienist has trouble knowing which tooth I had fixed. This is is a very classy dental practice from start to finish and it is a privilege to share my experience with others. Thank you!

I have been a patient of Dr. Marchack for many years. He is a master dentist who is a master of dentistry. Although going to the dentist is usually anxiety-provoking, Dr. Marchack and his excellent staff are so caring and warm that I immediately am able to put aside my anxiety and relax while he takes his time to work painstakingly and patiently. The office is well run, the we entire staff is warm and welcoming. I cannot recommend this office highly enough.

Luis B. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming to Dr. Chris Marchack for over 20 years, and he and his team are truly the best! Dr. Chris is extremely bright, professional, knowledgeable, kind, caring, and he always makes time for each patient, so that no one feels rushed. His practice utilizes and implements the latest technology. Dr. Chris and Dr. Baldwin frequently lecture on implants, current and future trends, as well as the state of the industry–both Doctors are highly regarded and respected amongst their peers and in their field. Every patient is warmly and professionally welcomed by Marisa and Doreen, and I have never experienced a long wait time in the reception area. Doreen also arranges all of the beautiful orchids throughout the office, each arrangement is spectacular! Joan and Anna take great care as hygienists at teeth cleaning, and both are very calm and experienced! Alex and Amber are sweet, talented, kind, and hard working professionals. They’re both gems! Dr. Marchack’s office makes “going to the dentist” such a terrific experience. The entire office feels like a loving family that cares about their patients, about the care that they provide, and maintaining a high standard of professionalism and quality.

I had a great dental visit. Dr.Chris Marchack is very kind and patient. I was a little anxoius. Amber,the assistant and Dr. Chris made me feel at ease. Dr.Marchack was painless. The whole staff is friendly and was happy to answer all my questions. Pasadena Prosthetics is a professional state of the art practice. I would highly. recommend this office .

I so appreciate everyone at Dr. Marshak’s office, from Dorie running the office at the front desk, to my lovely hygenist, Anna and the thoughtful, kind and effective Dr. Marshak. I have been getting my teeth cleaned here for years and after years of postponing it, finally took action to get my veneers replaced. To my relief, Dr. Marshak was able to remove the old veneers and polish my natural teeth WITHOUT the need for new veneers. It was lucky that my natural teeth hadn’t been filed down too much; and it was thoughtful and wise that Dr. Marshak was concernrd enough about the financial outlay to me of new veneers, that he was careful to remove them and see that this could be an option. I have a friendly and caring relationship with my hygienist, Anna and I truly respect everything that Dorie and Dr. Marshak have created/built together. Oh, and their Covid precaution protocols are truly state of the art!!

I am a longtime patient. I have always Loved the dentists and staff at Dr. Baldwin Marchack’s office. Today, I was more impressed than ever seeing how they are operating during Covid-19. The measures they are taking made me feel very comfortable-from air purifiers, disinfectants to wearing double masks, facial shields, and explaining everything along the way! Thank you esp. Anna, my hygienist. #bestdentistever

Ashi H. from Chinatown, San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Chris Marchack and his team restructured my teeth, and changed my life forever. I underwent 9 operations since I was a baby in order to fix my cleft palate. Out of the countless specialists that worked on me, I have never met such a caring and professional group. From the moment I walked to the front desk I felt taken care of. Again, I have never encountered such a thoughtful and selfless group. I would like to publicly thank Pasadena Prosthodontics for all of their hard work, and for writing a new chapter of my life.

John B. from Venice, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Chris Marchack for about four years. He and his father, Dr. Baldwin Marchack, have a diverse practice, from every day dental care to cosmetic dentistry and very complex dental repairs and restorations. The staff here stands out for their technical skills and talent, but also for their compassion and ability to put you at ease. They make sure that you are comfortable as they work, and will adjust their work if you feel stressed. In professions that deal with people, the gathering of all these accomplished staff in one office is rare. The office is well laid out and the chairs and equipment are new and up to date. Treatment options and costs are clearly itemized and discussed. Dr. Chris takes considerable care to make sure that you understand the options, the length of time it will take and the cost. I found that all my questions were answered by the end of our conversations about the work to be done. I’ve found Dr. Chris to be empathetic and knowledgeable in his analyses, treatments, and understanding the needs of patients. There is a great deal of artistry in creating replacements for teeth that match a patient’s appearance and personality. The quality of work is very high and that, in turn, gives you confidence as a patient. One thing I have learned from this office is that everyone working there is involved in your care: the front office admin staff, who are the public face of the office; the dental hygienists, who keep your teeth clean and are the early warning system; the technical staff of artists and sculptors who fabricate the crowns and bridges, and Dr. Chris and his assistants. They have all worked together a long time and their ease with each other is reflected in their treatment of patients. It’s a cheerful, light filled office, and a pleasant place to go.

I have been a patient for more than twenty years and in that time relocated to the Palm Springs area, and I still come back to this outstanding team of dental professionals for my twice a year dental hygiene and dental exam. Everyone from Doreen and the other friendly folks in the front office to my hygienist Anna to Dr. Baldwin Marchack are just absolutely TOP NOTCH! Should Dr. Baldwin ever retire, it is very assuring knowing that Dr. Christopher Marchack is waiting in the wings!

I have been going to Pasadena Prosthodontics (PP) for a few years now. The care I get is exceptional and equally matched with exceptional customer service. I live overseas and even from Israel or when I was living in the Netherlands they are always reachable. The time difference or distance did not matter. I always know they will be there for me. Dr Baldwin Marchack gives me the best advice even when I am unable to travel back to LA. I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone and know that they will get great care.

A year ago, due to a happy accident, I came upon Pasadena Prosthodontics where I embarked on a complete dental “remodel.” Dr. Chris’ creativity and incredible skills transformed me into a person who today dares to smile, freely showing her perfect teeth. It could have been an arduous journey if not for Dr. Chris and Amber who with their passion, knowledge, care and cheerful humor turned each visit into a pleasant event. I can’t praise enough the co-operation this practice has with Dr. Amir Aalam, a leader in his field, who performed difficult surgeries here in the Pasadena office using the most innovative technique in periodontics and today, I finally have healthy gums and strategically placed implants. When for years, due to painful and bad experience with teeth cleaning I used to put off my oral hygiene visits now, ever since I met Anna who, with her impeccable skills, kindness and outmost care tends to my regular oral hygiene, I am looking forward to my dentist’s visits. This is one of the most efficient and well-run practice I’ve ever encountered with friendly and extremely skilled professionals and office staff. I highly recommend Dr. Chris Marchack and Pasadena Prosthodontics.

I had a great experience as soon as my dental appointment began when Dr. Marchack gave me my shot… I asked him, “Did you give me a shot yet?” His reply was “Yes.” I did not feel anything AT ALL…no pain nor discomfort from the dreaded shot! I was elated. The rest of the procedure was professional and done expertly. Dr. Marchack even made sure & asked if I was still blissfully numb & comfortable during the appointment. My temporary restoration looks great and I was able to chew comfortably with no problem at all. Amber & Dr. Marchack are a great team. They work so well together and the procedure went so smoothly! I am happy Dr. Marchack is my dentist.

Outstanding dentist After more than a year of pain, 4 other dentist appointments, too much ibuprofen and 5 root canals, I was referred to Christopher Marchack @ Pasadena Prosthodontics. The office has a friendly and knowledgeable staff and is clean, bright with state of the art equipment. Dr Marchak carefully listened to me, answered my questions and expertly diagnosed the reasons for my painful teeth. He explained what needed to be done and proposed a course of action that would immediately stop my pain. I would highly recommend Dr. Christopher Marchack.

Believe it or not, I actually look forward to going to this beautiful dental office! Dr. Marchack is not only a top-of-the-line dentist, he is a kind and thoughtful human being. In fact, every person in this practice is considerate, patient, and approachable. Alex, Dr. Marchack’s assistant, is amazing! I highly recommend this practice if you are looking for expertise and a positive experience. You will not be sorry!

We have been seeing Dr. Marchak and his staff for years now. He pays careful attention, is knowledgeable and seems to keep his practice quite savvy and technologically ahead. Anna is hands down (by far) the best hygienist I have ever been to! I don’t ever want to see anyone else. She is so gentle yet thorough! I can’t say enough. The front staff and other technicians are wonderful, fast and friendly and a special shout out to Marisa at the front who is always very efficient and squeezes us in despite our and their very busy schedule. Thank you!

I needed a new set of dentures and was referred to Pasadena Prosthodontics. They are a family run business that really made me comfortable from day 1. Dr Christopher Marchack did my work and I can’t tell you how much trusted him and his skills. He is a warm and caring man who gave me several cheaper options when I told him my budget was limited. He even discouraged things I would ask about that would have cost more because they just weren’t right for me. His integrity is apparent in his service. I got my new dentures yesterday and they are wonderful. I’ll be getting a couple implants for my lower denture next, to complete my work. I can’t wait to see how much improvement I’m going to have. I highly recommend Pasadena Prosthodontics to anyone needing that type of work.

Charles L. from Placerville, CA (Source: Yelp)


Several months ago, I had a traumatic experience and was in dire need of a good dentist. I searched immensely for the right doctor and staff until I found the best. I am so grateful to Dr Badlwin Marchack He put a great deal of time reconstructing my upper jaw, gums and teeth and the outcome is astounding! He did everything it took to give me back my health. I also have the utmost admiration and respect for each member in this office. They are the most professional and caring people I have ever encountered. I would recommend Dr. Marchack and his staff, (including his excellent oral surgeon Dr. Aalam) to everyone. They truly are the best!

I have to say no one likes going to the dentist !!..well a lot of people don’t EXCEPT GOING TO this office “Dr.Marchacks Team”is a totally,different experience !!..From the office coordinators to the entire dental staff And my new DENTIST/PROSTHODONTIST Dr.Chan!!!!!… She is beyond empathetic she understands what I feel need etc…she Actually is listening when you talk..she is very talented knowledgeable.. I knew if she was apart of the team of both MARCHACK’s Team it was going to be great!!.. She was beyond GREAT!!..they really take the time to go through medical history and the exams were the most thorough I have experienced‼‼‼….I have been to a few dentists and other specialists that are not even half as thorough and you spend most of your time waiting and only have the dentist rush in and out …and your left confused exhausted ..and further away from having nice looking and healthy teeth and gums … They are Top EDUCATED Doctors ‼ I think even they were surprised how relaxed I was and I said that’s bcz of Dr Chan and Susie .. I did have the pleasure of being examined by Baldwin Marchack my first visit and he really listens while your talking…and is “””The expert””!! Amber is great!.Anna very nice!.. Doreen is Amazing!!!..Marissa who always checks me out end of my visits always pleasant to deal with..I mention again they all actually hear what the patient is saying..sometimes you don’t get that .. We all probably know most times an entire office isn’t running smoothly.. But this office!! From booking to seeing The Dr.s to check out is a Nice experience !! … What a relief!!! I no longer dread going to the dentist‼

I’m a tiny woman whose small mouth leaves very little margin for error and on top of it I’m impatient, claustrophic and high strung. Dr. Chris and his wonderful assistant Amber have been Godsends to me on every imaginable level. When they say they’ll be there for you, they mean it. They are kind, compassionate and sensitive to the highest degree and even on his busiest day, Chris makes time for you and makes you feel like you’re his only patient.  When it comes to his work, Dr. Chris is an artist of the highest caliber whose craftsmanship leaves other dentists breathless. He’s highly creative, intuitive and sensitive and is willing and able to think outside the box when a problem arises.  This is expensive stuff, and he’s found ways to save me thousands of dollars. He’s also saved me from myself on several occasions by encouraging me to stick out a rough patch rather than go backwards, all without losing his patience with me.  I can’t imagine a more difficult and challenging job than what he does: making people who have lost teeth as comfortable and happy with their appearance as they were when they had natural teeth. This isn’t filling-cavities-dentistry; this is highly-exacting rocket science where a fraction of a millimeter can throw the whole works off.  With a dental lab on site, quality control is virtually guaranteed and repairs are speedy. There’s a reason Chris teaches dentists all over the world how to do what he does. You won’t find a more  enlightened, skilled,  humble or caring prosthsodontist anywhere else on the planet.

Seven years ago I began the search for a new dentist. Asking friends who, like myself, needed or has had lots of dental work my interview process was narrowed to 1 general dentist and 3 prosthodontists. Over the years I’ve lost much of the enamel on my teeth resulting in sometimes painful sensitivity. Dr. Chris Marchak was the last of the 4 dentists / prosthodontists that I interviewed and how lucky I was that a friend had recommended him. Dr. Marchak was the only one who immediately recognized the cause of the enamel erosion, Acid Reflux, and before treating my teeth Dr. Marchak said the cause needed to be treated first. This not only told me about Dr. Marchak’s knowledge but also of his integrity. Over the years Dr Marchak and I have worked together to both save and restore my teeth with a long term plan. Dr. Marchak is one of the most patient professionals I’ve ever worked with, he is thorough in his explanations, including both causes and results, while providing options. I was shocked to read S H’s review and would be surprised if there’s more to the story than on the surface. Dr. Marchak’s work is impeccable, the office professional and is highly recommend.

They have responded to the Covid 19 epidemic in the most responsible way. They only allow one person at a time to go into their office, they have air filters in every room, each staff uses complete PPI, they disinfect the room after each patient, they cover the dental chair with new plastic for every patient, there are desinfectante pumps in every room. I was so impressed and felt very comfortable being in their office.

Dr. Marchack and the whole team at Pasadena Prosthodontics are top notch. For over a year after an accident that left me needing replacement of my front teeth I felt stuck and unsure of the best process to restore my smile. My old dentist and oral surgeon rarely had clear answers to my questions. Then I met Dr. Chris. It’s extremely rare to find a doctor that gives you as much focused time and attention as he and his team do. Dr. Chris and his team have identified and executed a plan for my teeth restoration with superior professionalism; and that has turned a difficult and daunting situation into a manageable process. The cooperation between Dr. Chris Marchack and Dr. Alexandre Aalam has been better than I could have imagined. My experience under the care of Dr. Aalam with bone grafting, multiple gum tissue grafts and ultimately implant placement has been nothing short of excellent. I am grateful for the whole team at Pasadena Prosthodontics, I’ve had nothing but positive experiences in their office. I am so happy to say I’ve finally found my dentist.

Mel R. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am a dentist-phobe. Even a regular cleaning can have me knotted up. My dental care has been under Dr. Chris Marchak and his staff for fourteen years. I’ve had five crowns and many expert cleanings by Anna, one of the hygienists. Dr. Marchak manages to  calm my fears, give me painless procedures and be entirely reasonable in his advice for what I need, should have or best forgo. I highly recommend this dental office.

I was referred to Dr Chris Marchack by one of the best OMFS Professionals in the country, because I had a very complex dental case. I travel 93 miles one way from Temecula just to see Dr Chris. I would travel farther if needed. Dr Chris and his entire staff are incredible. I wasn’t sure if I would ever have upper teeth again. Dr Chris not only gives me his utmost attention and professional care, he worked closely with my OMFS. He arranged to have a representative present to make sure the strict protocol was followed precisely. I’ve had nothing but positive and wonderful experiences, I actually look forward to my appointments. Dr Chris has given me MY smile back. Friends that have known me before say my smile looks EXACTLY the way it did before my misfortune. Dr Chris has gone ABOVE and BEYOND for me. I am so Thankful for finding him, and I can’t imagine anyone else helping me through this tragic ordeal. Dr Chris assured me every time I saw him that I would be eating anything and everything I want, and he definitely delivered on his promise. And his staff helped me at some very low points when I was afraid of never having teeth to chew food again. They assured me and comforted me as well that everything would be ok. They have all cheered me on and I am so grateful for being emotionally and physically restored by such amazing people.

I’m really a nervous person when it comes to hospitals and Dintist office’s At the beginning of my visit the gave me a tour of the office and the facilities and it was really nice to see how they operated. My nerves where calm after that and the staff where amazingly professional and nice. I can honestly say I feel better about going to the dentist after my visit.


Dr. Christopher Marchack joined his father’s practice in 1987, bringing a wealth of up-to-the-minute academic training from the highly-esteemed University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco. After three years in general practice at the elbow of his mentor, Dr. Marchack determined that he needed to learn more about the overall scope of dentistry. He furthered his education, completing studies in prosthodontics at USC School of Dentistry in 1992. This specialization gave him added confidence in providing the best possible patient care, an assurance that now flows through the practice. He chose prosthodontics because it pulls in all aspects of dentistry and gives patients the choices they deserve. Dr. Marchack currently serves as Associate Clinical Professor at University of Southern California School of Dentistry, Department of Continuing Education, and is co-director of their New Odontic Seminar. He is also Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, Department of Preventive and Restorative Sciences; and Clinical Instructor at the University of California San Francisco School of Dentistry, Department of Preventive and Restorative Dental Sciences. He is a published author on topics related to restorative implant dentistry, in several peer-reviewed journals. He sits on the editorial review board for the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Implants. Dr. Marchack has been featured on local and national television segments about dentistry, and he lectures on national and international levels.
