Dr. Marko graduated in 1980 from Western University, not too far from her childhood home in Windsor Ontario. She earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) making the Dean’s honor list. At her graduation, she was presented with several prestigious awards including the American Association of Endodontics Award, the Dr. George Bedrosian Award in Restorative Dentistry, and the Mosby Book Award in Occlusion.
