Marius M. Laniauskas, D.D.S.

Dr. Laniauskas has been a Greater Cleveland Eastsider all his life. He was born and raised in the Collinwood/Euclid areas and graduated from St. Joseph High School. He furthered his education at Baldwin Wallace College, where after three accelerated years of studies, he was accepted to Case Western Reserve University's School of Dental Medicine. Upon graduation from dental school, he completed a post-graduate residency program at Metro Health Hospital, which prepared him well for all aspects of general dentistry.

Following his residency, he opened his private practice and returned to his alma mater, Case Western Reserve School of Dental Medicine, as a teacher. He has taken great pride in the fact that he has touched the lives of thousands of dental students, continuing to this day to volunteer his time at the school as an associate clinical professor.

Through his ongoing involvement at the dental school, as well as participation in highly esteemed study clubs and internationally acclaimed continuing education courses, he continues to further his own education in order to provide his patients with the latest and best of care in the world of dentistry.

Dr. Laniauskas is an active member of the American Dental Association, Ohio Dental Association, Greater Cleveland Dental Society, The International College of Dentists, The Pierre Fauchard Academy, and Omicron Upsilon Honor Fraternity.

Dr. Laniauskas presently resides in Mentor, OH with his wife Egle and takes great pride in his four children, all of whom are pursued undergraduate or post graduate degrees. "I treat every patient as if he is a member of my own family." That type of caring, and getting to know patients on a more personal level, is what makes dentistry so rewarding for him.

2003 Recipient of Case School of Dental Medicine Distinguished Alumnus Award
