   After experiencing childhood dental traumas, everything from not being given local anesthetic to having teeth drilled with ancient, belt driven equipment, this dental-phobic woman became a dentist. Dr. Marra understands how childhood traumas, fear of the unknown and horror stories from others have created a culture of anxiety when it comes to dentistry. She has made it her personal goal to do what she can to make her patients comfortable coming into her office. Amazing advances in technology, training, anesthetics and injection techniques along with empathetic dental professionals have dramatically reduced discomfort of dental treatment. We utilize noise cancelling headphones, music, movies and therapy dogs to make the patient experience less stressful. 

   Dr. Marra has been practicing dentistry for over 30 years and over 23 of them in this location. At Foothills Family Dental, we offer our patients the highest quality dental care available. We are a family owned and operated practice and know our patients personally. Our community has voted Dr. Marra and her staff “Best Dentist in Ahwatukee” 11 times and “One of the Best Dentist” a record 18 years in a row. Foothills Family Dental offers a wide variety of dental treatments from preventative and restorative to cosmetic and emergency services. We are always looking to improve our patient’s experience; we offer the highest quality dental care available, we recently renovated our office and we have now added two therapy dogs, Bella and Mia, to our staff to help anxious patients feel more comfortable during treatment. Dr. Marra and her husband, Bob, have seen firsthand the impact they made on patients they visited in the Senior Memory Care Center at Hawthorne Court and developmentally disabled children they visited at a local middle school, Akimal.

   We look forward to meeting you soon and taking care of all your dental needs stress free, after all, you deserve a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile!
