About Dr. Barry M. Mark

Dr. Barry M. Mark is a native of Schenectady, New York and graduated cum laude from Sienna College, Loudonville, New York, with a bachelor’s degree in biology in 1970. He earned his doctorate degree in dentistry from the University of Maryland in 1974. After graduation from dental school, Dr. Mark enlisted in the Army and served in the Dental Corps at Fort Hood, Texas. Dr Mark has been in private practice since returning home in 1976.

In the late 1980’s, Dr. Mark completed two- year long courses of study in the diagnosis and treatment of TMJ-TMD disorders and facial pain at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ), Newark, N.J. He was previously affiliated with the Rockland Center for TMJ Disorders and Facial Pain where he treated thousands of patients.

In 1993 Dr. Mark started his Acupuncture training by completing a 300 hour Doctor’s program. He then decided to enhance his training and proceeded to complete a three year Master’s program at the Tri State Institute of Traditional Chinese Acupuncture which entitled him to take the national board sponsored by the NCCAOM which lead to licensure in New York State.

After completing the Acupuncture Master’s Program, he completed a three year program in Classical Homeopathy. Dr. Mark incorporates homeopathy and complex homeopathy in his practice. He is also certified in using plant based enzymes to help with some of the deficiencies people experience with their digestion, which can be an underlying cause of many painful syndromes.

Dr. Mark has also had extensive training in electro-dermal screening or Electro- Acupuncture by Voll (EAVtesting). According to Dr. Voll, who was both a MD and DDS, each tooth relates to an organ and to an acupuncture meridian. Therefore, if there is dental involvement within the mouth there may be an effect on a corresponding organ. Even in allopathic medicine, when there is a periodontal problem, there may be implications of cardio-vascular involvement. This is a very profound concept which demonstrates that dental treatment impacts overall general health and should be viewed in this manner. Dr. Mark has completed the 2010 curriculum at the Energetix International College of Bio-Energetic Medicine. Dr. Mark presently utilizes the ASYRA, a computer assisted bioenergetic modality which is an evolution of EAV testing.

Dr. Mark is also certified in NET (Neuro Emotional Technique). This technique helps release neuropeptides, which are known to carry emotions throughout the body and thus influencing physiologic function. NET deals with “emotional reality” and is not a talk therapy, nor is it a substitute for psychological therapy.

Dr. Mark is also a certified Onnetsu (Far Infrared) therapist, having trained with Dr. Kazuko Tatsumura Hillyer, the foremost authority on Onnetsu therapy in the world.

Since 1994, Dr. Mark has been practicing in Kingston, New York, with his wife, Dr. Carol S. Kessler, PhD (OM), LAc, MS, LMT, and Clinic Director of the Irlen Clinic of Kingston, NY, Certified Irlen Screener and Diagnostician.

Dr. Mark’s practice has an emphasis on the evaluation and treatment of Temporomandibular Disorders and Facial Pain. Dr. Mark is a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), and was a clinical assistant in the Aesthetic Dental Program at NYU School of Dentistry.
