His colleagues, who were really friends, all used the same words when they shared memories of Dr. Mark Doherty: Generous. Compassionate. A champion for oral health.
A forceful and unwavering advocate for oral health access for the underserved, Mark died on October 7 at age 75. He is survived by his wife (of 53 years) Deborah, two children, five grandchildren, and three siblings. Many of his colleagues at the CareQuest Institute for Oral Health came to know his family over the years.
