DENVER, CO – Dr. Marc Reissner, Founder of Altura Periodontics and one of the industry’s leading practitioners, has announced he will retire from private practice in September of this year.
“It’s hard to believe it’s been 35 years since I started my practice in the Denver area,” Dr. Reissner says, “during which time I’ve had the honor of meeting and helping so many wonderful patients, and working with some of the state’s finest dentists and specialists. I’m proud the practice I started in 1981 has continued to grow while maintaining the excellent care you deserve, and have come to expect, from Altura Periodontics.”
Dr. Reissner obtained his dental degree from Case Western Reserve before going on complete a general practice residency at the Cleveland Veteran’s Administration Hospital. After completing his specialty training in Periodontics, he fulfilled two dreams by moving to Colorado to be near the mountains, and opening his own specialty practice in 1981.He held numerous titles over the years, including Clinical Instructor of Community Dentistry at Case Western Reserve University, and Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado School of Dentistry. During his distinguished career he also co-authored articles published in several prestigious industry publications, including the Journal of Periodontology, the International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Implants, and Implant Dentistry. He has been selected on numerous occasions as a Top Dentist by 5280 Magazine.
Additionally, he and his colleagues instruct at, and host, numerous continuing education courses each year at Altura’s Periodontal and Dental Implant Center, which attracts participants from across the U.S. and abroad.
“Marc Reissner is not only an outstanding clinician, but a great mentor and friend. He will be sorely missed at Altura Periodontics, but we wish him all the best in his well-deserved retirement.” Alan Z. Pomeranz, DMD.
Dr. Reissner leaves his patients in the competent hands of colleagues Drs. Pomeranz, Arguello, Neugeboren, and Marcushamer, all of whom believe passionately in Altura’s mission to provide the “Height of Treatment” to each and every patient.
