Marius Puha, DMD


I am from Romania and lived in Illinois and California before moving to Arizona. I am married to my beautiful wife Sara and am a father to my baby girl who is six months old.  I love doing anything outdoors including visiting national parks with my wife and daughter.

I’ve practiced dentistry in a corporate setting over the past two years and joined the amazing team at Burns Dentistry in 2023. I have a passion for dentistry and enjoy developing new skills while helping my team provide the best care possible to our patients.

  • Fun Fact: In my first career I was a High School teacher in Chicago!
  • Favorite Procedure – “My favorite procedure is the New Smile Design. It has the potential to completely change a patient’s life by improving self-esteem and giving them a chance to smile again without fear or embarrassment.”
  • If I could travel anywhere it would be a European trip with my daughter!

The Kennedy's

“I have never been to such a nice dentist office! Everyone is truly kind, gave me a tour, a welcome gift, and they have all the up to date tech. My hygienist, Felicia, was wonderful, knowledgable, and kind. I am truly looking forward to my future appointments.”

A. Babbitt

“I had the best experience at Burns dentistry. From the moment I walked in the receptionist greeted me by my name to when they called me back for my appointment. This was the first dental office that ever gave me a tour of there office which I thought was pretty neat. Office is really nice and clean. Dr. Holtan was very nice and friendly and loved how he took his time on explaining everything to me. So extremely grateful and highly recommend Burns Dentistry.”
