You are playing Russian roulette with this impaired dentist. Need to check out all of his reviews prior to patronizing his office. My father was a dentist; I know the minimum standard of care. Marcum's treatment of me resulted in ongoing pain, infection, bone loss and the eventual loss of the tooth. This was a routine root canal. His demeanor was angry. His treatment was brutal; there is no other way to describe it. He jammed the splint used to prop the mouth open, with the heel of his hand repeatedly. That only added to the pain that felt like having a root canal done without any anesthesia. I would cry; he told me that if I cried, he would send me away. I knew the nerve was exposed or I would have gotten out of that chair and run. I was trapped. There was no attempt at alleviating pain, only causing more. His staff stood by, mocking me. When it was over, I was still in intense pain until I went to the ER the next morning. When I went to another dentist, she immediately acknowledged that I'd been traumatized. I went to another endodontist who volunteered that the evidence pointed to iatrogenic or physician caused harm. He wrote a letter detailing infection and bone loss and had to extract the tooth. I have since been diagnosed with PTSD and have flashbacks whenever I am in a dental chair even for a simple procedure.
How this man has not been censured is a mystery to me.
He also violated my privacy, contacting a colleague of mine to get my statement on his treatment.

Dr. Lloyd Marcum and his staff made a ugly and painful situation a positive one. When I came in I felt like my tooth was going to erupt like a volcano. The pain was extreme. Dr. Lloyd Marcum numbed my mouth and started the procedure. After the procedure I was sore but felt so much better. The doctor proscribed anti botics and a pain killer after the procedure. I felt so much better afterwards. Within a few days I was back to normal.

I had to have more than one root canal, and Dr Marcum and his staff changed my mind about what it's like to have a root canal! It was a great experience! I was so nervous, but the front office made me feel reassured and joked with me so I didn't feel scared. Dr Marcum was really nice, and when he gave me the injection it was really slow and gentle. His asst Gina made me feel relaxed and told me about her dogs and her house, and before I knew it, they were done! It was pain free, and it was such a good experience, that I went there again when I needed another root canal. The next time they all treated me like I was an old friend. Damion at the front helped me with my insurance billing, and the whole procedure went smooth! I love this office! Thank you Dr Marcum and staff!
