Dr. Mark Wegzyn, D.D.S., joined Dentacare of Knoxville after 28 years of running his own private practice in the Detroit area. His function is to provide clinical care to his patients.
Early in his life, Dr. Wegzyn began to gravitate toward the field of dentistry. His scout master was a dentist and another dentist in town who he got to know well also pushed him toward the field. He gained interest then and continues to want to learn and be on the forefront of patient care and offering the best care possible.
Dr. Wegzyn earned his undergraduate degree at Eastern Michigan University, where he played collegiate baseball. Dental school came calling and he graduated from the University of Michigan Dental School in 1981.
Dr. Wegzyn enjoys all facets of dentistry, as well as meeting many different people he sees in our busy practice. An avid sports fan, Dr. Wegzyn and his wife have four sons, two of which played collegiate football.
One of his priorities is to make everyone he meets smile and laugh at least once a day. “We are available after hours, we offer a full range of services so we’re not limited in anything we do here,” says Dr. Wegzyn. “We see just about any walk of life and we’re there sometimes when people can’t get away from work or school.”
Dr. Wegzyn wants to have fun with all of his patients and that includes the young kids that he
routinely treats. “Sometimes those kids are terrified of a dentist,” he explains. “I want to help that child go through the most fun appointment that I can make it and if that helps the child and the parent get through the day with a smile on their faces, then I’ve definitely made my day worthwhile.”
