Dr. Mark Edington grew up in Las Vegas, graduating from Valley High School in 1992. He then began his college education at Brigham Young University, taking two years out of his college years to volunteer as an LDS missionary in the Dominican Republic where he became fluent in Spanish. After graduating Brigham Young in 1998, he immediately enrolled at the prestigious Creighton University Medical Center where he received his D.D.S. (Doctor of Dental Surgery) degree in 2002. Following one year in Arizona working with a large clinic associated with the Lutheran Medical Center dental residency program, Dr. Edington returned to Las Vegas to be close to his family.
Dr. Edington spent the next 5 years directing dental care at multiple Las Vegas area clinics. It was always Dr. Edington’s dream to build a modern dental practice in his own community with the latest advances in dentistry. Beginning in 2006, he carefully designed and equipped our first office to provide extraordinary care for residents and visitors of Las Vegas. In 2016, after 10 years at 700 E. Silverado Ranch Blvd., Dr. Edington moved the practice just around the corner to our new convenient and beautiful location in the Albertson's / 24hr Fitness Silverado Ranch parking lot at Silverado Ranch and Maryland Pkwy. Modern Dental Care continues to carry out Dr. Edington’s mission to provide the highest quality dental care to the community he grew up in.
Dr. Edington has advanced training and certification in providing Anxiety Free Dentistry and is a member of D.O.C.S. (Dental Organization for Concious Sedation). He is a Premier Provider for Invisalign (Invisible Braces) with more experience than any other general dentist in the South Las Vegas area, Lumineers (ultra-thin porcelain veneers) trained, and is a certified Visilite (oral cancer screening) provider. Also, we are proud of his affiliation with the Academy of General Dentistry, the premiere organization for general dentists. Most recently, Dr. Edington has become a CEREC dentist, providing same day porcelain restorations with the amazing CEREC milling machine.
When Dr. Edington is not taking care of patients, his personal interests outside of dentistry include swimming with the Henderson Masters Swim Team and cycling with friends. He loves to spend time outdoors and grow vegetables in his yard - he is currently growing a monster pumpkin! Additionally, Dr. Edington is passionate about traveling and spending time with his wife. He and his wife, Jenny Lynne, recently added the newest addition to the Edington Family, their second son, Alec.
