Dr. Marra

Dr. Edward Marra

As a young man, Dr. Marra decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and became a dentist. He attended Temple University in Philadelphia, and graduated in 1989. He then did his general practice residency at the VA hospital in Buffalo NY. He settled in Batavia NY where he opened his private practice. He practiced in his office for 24 years. Dr. Marra loves all aspects of dentistry. He finds great joy in creating new smiles with cosmetic dentistry and has a love of treating Root Canals.

Dr. Marra and his family have visited Arizona for years on vacation and decided there would be no better place to live so they made the move from New York in 2013. Dr. Marra is a huge sports fan, and enjoys spending time with his family in the amazing weather. He also enjoys skiing, hiking, and golfing.

Dr. Marra is thrilled to have Dr. Boling join him at Cooper Family Dentistry. Dr. Marra looks forward to many years of treating patients with respect and care in his new home town.

Dr. Gary Boling

As an expert in the art of aesthetic and comprehensive reconstructive dentistry, Dr. Boling has a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Southern California and Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Pacific.

Dr. Boling recently moved to the Phoenix area from Laguna Beach, California where he specialized in full mouth restorative and cosmetic dentistry. His fundamental philosophy is providing optimal patient care that is in the patient’s best interest, care that is not compromised by insurance mandates. Patients deserve the opportunity to be fully informed about various treatment options and their consequences and make decisions as to the treatment they deserve.

Early in his career, Dr. Boling took fellowship courses from Dr. William Dickerson (LVI) and Dr. Bernard Jankelson (U of W), innovators of the science of “neuromuscular occlusion”. The teeth guide the position of the jaw and when the jaw is in poor alignment it is responsible for TMJ pain, migraine headaches, back pain, tinnitus, sleep apnea, bone loss, etc. Dr. Boling is in an elite class of dentists in the United States with such training. He is a member of the American Dental Association, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and the American Academy of General Dentistry.

Known for his scientific knowledge, artistic and technical talents, Dr. Boling is an expert at creating healthy and natural looking smiles. Dr. Boling practices dentistry which takes into account the whole person and recognizes that dental conditions and procedures impact a person’s general health and well-being.

Dr. Boling enjoys spending his free time playing golf as well as hiking and biking with his wife Debbie. Debbie is a dental hygienist and a strong contributor to his artistic aesthetic dentistry and smile design. We are confident that everyone will be extremely happy with his vast dental knowledge, quality patient care, excellent patient interaction, and the trust he instills.
