Meet The Team

Mark B. Waggoner, DDS, FADSA

The Mai Dentistry team proudly welcomes Dr. Waggoner, a general dentist who holds special certification in dental IV sedation, to the office several times every month where he primarily performs the removal of impacted wisdom teeth. Dr. Waggoner also provides IV sedation for dental implants, and to help extremely nervous or fearful patients receive the care they need. While anesthesiology is not a recognized dental specialty, performing IV sedation requires a State Board permit, which Dr. Waggoner has held since 1984. We have chosen to work with Dr. Waggoner because we believe his extensive experience in “portable oral surgery” and IV sedation allows us to provide our patients with expert care in the familiar surroundings of our office.

Dr. Waggoner and his wife, Linda, have been married for nearly 30 years. They have three adult children. Dr. Waggoner has served as a Cub Scout Leader, Boy Scout Leader, and he and his son are both Eagle Scouts.
