Additional Dental Services


Dr. Marc Gonzalez

Although he was born in Miami, Florida, Dr. Marc Gonzalez was raised in Charlotte, NC from the age of three. His first exposure to dentistry did not happen until he was 10 since his parents faced financial and cultural barriers after immigrating from Cuba.

At his first visit, Dr. Gonzalez experienced pain from several cavities, but his pediatric dentist made it a comfortable and memorable experience, ultimately sparking his interest in what would be his career and passion. He went on to shadow other dentists and intern, where he realized how important it was to get patients out of pain and give them their smiles back.

Dr. Gonzalez received his BA in Chemistry from UNC Chapel Hill and his DDS from UNC Adams School of Dentistry. While in dental school, Dr. Marc helped operate a free urgent-care dental clinic and participated in two international dental service trips in Mexico and Moldova. He has also volunteered with various NC Mission of Mercy clinics. With his new practice, he plans to provide community support to local schools and show his gratitude to the educators and speech therapist he had when he was a child.

Additionally, Dr. Marc is dedicated to life-long learning in his profession and keeps up to date with the latest trends in dentistry to help better serve his patients. His dedication to continuing education is evident with over 600 continuing education hours and in his pursuit of a Fellowship with the Academy of General Dentistry. Dr. Marc is also a member with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

During his free time, Dr. Gonzalez enjoys hiking, weightlifting, reading, yoga, and meditation. He also loves traveling, spending time with his loved ones, and watching anime.

Client Testimonials

I had a dental emergency last week but didn’t really have a steady dentist to call. After calling around to a few places, the team at Embark Dental was able to see me on the same day and work 1 on 1 with me to see that I got the best care for my chipped tooth. Dr. Marc & Thomas answered every one of my questions and even checked up on me over the weekend (when they were closed). They will immediately be the preferred dentist for my family moving forward.

-Adam F.

Great experience at my first visit to Embark Dental today with Michael (very friendly and knowledgeable hygienist), with Jeanette and Diane at the front desk, and Dr. Marc who explained different options for moving forward with my treatment plan. I was particularly impressed when I called for an appointment (around lunchtime), and Dr Marc answered the phone himself! He scheduled me for an appointment the very next day. I even got a free electric toothbrush for my first visit. I am looking forward to future visits with this team – super-friendly, helpful, personable, and professional.

-Barbara H.

The best dental experience I’ve had, bar none, especially as a severe emergency case. Dr. Marc scheduled me on a holiday and after hours to make sure I could get the care I needed as quickly as possible. I really appreciated how transparent he was with the entire procedure. From the beginning, he explained what needed to happen and talked me through it, and at the end, he was able to show me photos of the entire process. Even with top-of-the-line equipment, the costs are reasonable as far as dentistry is concerned. I definitely felt like I was in good hands and have decided to continue with his practice as a regular patient. If you’re looking for a dentist you can trust, this is the place to go.
