Marcus Pope, DMD

Marcus grew up in both Bountiful, Utah and then Chicago, Illinois. He developed a passionate devotion to the Bulls and Chicago style hot dogs and deep dish pizza. He served a two year mission for the LDS church in Porto Alegre, Brazil.


He attended Brigham Young University for his undergraduate studies, where he met and married the love of his life, Turia. They lived in Richmond, Virginia where Marcus attended dental school at Virginia Commonwealth University graduating in 2008. They then moved to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma for his dental residency. Along the way they welcomed three spirited and adventurous children into the world.


The Pope family enjoyed the beaches, forests and wild blackberries of Washington State for many years while Marcus practiced dentistry with Kaiser Permanente. When the opportunity presented itself in 2018, they decided to return to Utah to be closer to family and the mountains they love best.


They now live in Heber City, where they love to mountain bike, backpack, garden, read good books and host really loud dance parties.
