Robert M. Marcus, DDS
For more than forty years, I have endeavored to contribute to the health, happiness, and well¬-being of my amazing family: Judi, Rachel, David, Emily, Benjamin, and Jackson. After my formal education at the University of Maryland, Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, including specialized training at the Kennedy Krieger Institute at Johns Hopkins Hospital, I was fortunate to open my pediatric dental office in Reisterstown Maryland. My practice focuses on complete, compassionate dental services for infants, children, teens, adults, and those with special needs.
The rewarding experiences in the treatment of thousands of babies and older patients by dental laser surgery for their lip and tongue ties have encouraged me to enhance my education. Additional training in breastfeeding medicine, speech and language pathology, skeletal development, feeding disorders, and cranial sacral therapy, will provide lifelong improvement in feeding and oral motor skills for my patients. My commitment to continuing education allows me to discover and share the newest advances in dentistry and oral healthcare with my patients and colleagues. I truly enjoy being a part of my family’s fun activities by traveling to visit my daughter Rachel in New York City, my son David and his wife Emily in Massachusetts, and my future partners, their twins, Ben and Jack (18 months). My camera is always at the ready whether we are swimming, sightseeing, or doing obstacle course racing, (Spartan races). I have to keep active because my wife is a world class chef! Always learning!

Earl H. Harley, M.D.
I was born in Jacksonville, Florida and reared in Detroit, Michigan. I attended the public school system in Detroit, graduating from the former Eastern High School. I eventually enrolled in Delaware State University, graduating with a degree in chemistry. I attended medical school at Howard University. After medical school I went on active duty and served a full career as a doctor from a period which spanned the Vietnam War to the first Persian Gulf War. My Navy career included two tours as a Naval Fight Surgeon in addition to my position as an Otolaryngologist. Since retiring from the Navy I have served on the faculty of Georgetown University.
My professional training includes an initial residency in pediatrics and later training to become an Otolaryngologist followed by two years of pediatric otolaryngology fellowship in Washington, D.C. and Boston. I am a diplomat of the American Board of Otolaryngology and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. In addition to being a member of the American Medical Association, I also hold memberships in the National Medical Association, The American Society of Pediatric Otolaryngology, The Society for Ear Nose and Throat Advances in Children, and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Currently I am a professor of Pediatrics and Otolaryngologist at Georgetown and serve as an attending Pediatric Otolaryngologist. I continue to be very active in undergraduate and graduate medical education here.
