Since 1982 when he became a dentist, Dr. Mark M. Farthing has been dedicated to restoring patients’ confidence in their smiles. He opened Indianapolis Family Dentistry in 1985. A graduate of Indiana University School of Dentistry, Dr. Farthing hails from Princeton, IN, but spent some of his formative years in Littleton, CO, where he attended high school. He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley. Dr. Farthing has continued his dental education at the prestigious Dawson Academy, where he completed advanced studies in occlusion. At Indiana University School of Dentistry he took additional coursework in sedation dentistry and is affiliated with the Implant Study Group. Dr. Farthing and his wife have three married children and four grandchildren. When not at the office, he stays busy gardening, boating, swimming, participating in church and social activities and watching football, a high school sport he once coached. And it seems that both Dr. Farthing and Dr. Tepner are interested in chemistry—Dr. Farthing used to teach high school chemistry.
