Dr. Mark Bayless
333 El Dorado St., Monterey
Dr. Bayless approaches every mouth with a smile and makes sure that every tooth gets the TLC it deserves. Since the age of 15, Bayless has loved working with kids—and it’s this love that propelled him to specialize in pediatric dentistry. His goal is to create an environment where kids and parents can have fun and get excited about teeth. He does so through the strategic placement of technology throughout the office, including video games in the waiting room, iPod Touches at the dental chairs, and the option to view a movie during treatment time. He also likes to perform magic tricks to ease the nerves of scared little patients. Another unique aspect of the Dr. Bayless experience is his office’s Facebook page, with dentistry news, contests with prizes, and funny links like a “Gangnam Style” parody promoting tooth-brushing.
