About Dr. Margarit

Dr. James Margarit, DDS, takes care of his patients the same way he takes care of his family. He prides himself on being gentle and caring, straightforward, and low-pressure.

Dr. Margarit was born and raised in the beautiful beach town of Grand Haven, MI, on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan. He graduated from the University of Michigan Dental School in 1986. Due to the state of Michigan’s economy during the late 1980s, Dr. Margarit decided to move to New Mexico after visiting a friend who had been transferred to White Sands Missile Range. He has been living, practicing, and raising a family in Las Cruces ever since.
