Marc Zive, DMD

Marc Zive, DMD

Dr. Marc Zive founded and brought Court Street Family Dentistry to Westfield in 2007. He is a native of Worcester, Massachusetts. As a young man, Marc developed strong interests in model building and design. Helping his father in the family’s independent pharmacy, he also gained a keen interest in medicine. When it came time to choose a career path, Marc combined his interests in engineering and medicine which led him to the newly developing field of Biomedical Engineering. Dr. Zive attended Tulane University in New Orleans where he earned his B.S. in Biomedical Engineering. During his time at Tulane, Marc had the opportunity to get involved with research into how bone grows around metal implants. Marc then continued his studies and earned a Masters Degree in Biomedical Engineering from Drexel University in Philadelphia, where his research focus was on dental implant materials and methods to control how bone heals around implant materials. After earning his degrees, Dr. Zive spent several years in research and development of medical devices for the orthopedic and cardiology industries. In 1988, Marc transitioned a dental research position at Tufts University in Boston before entering their Doctoral program in dentistry. During his years at Tufts, Marc continued his endeavors in dental research. After earning his D.M.D. at Tufts, he continued as a Faculty member and researcher in dental materials. Marc transitioned once again in 1995 to a career in private dental practice. Dr. Zive has built Court Street Family Dentistry based on the ideals that all patients should be treated as if they were a member of his family. Dr. Zive is constantly pursuing additional training in the newest dental procedures and technologies in an effort to bring his patients the latest treatment advances in a comfortable, modern, efficient, friendly and pain free environment.

When not in his office, Dr. Zive enjoys spending time with his wife and two teenage sons. Favored activities include swimming, biking, downhill skiing, golfing, theme parks, professional theatre and traveling. The family tailors it’s activities to the needs of their autistic son, a skill which Dr. Zive has brought into his dental practice for his autistic and other special needs patients.
