Marc Menzies was born and raised in Levittown. In 2003, his father, Dr. Gerard H Menzies, decided to open up a dental practice in North Bellmore. Faced with the challenges of opening up a new business, Dr. Menzies enlisted the help of his son, then 14 years old, to research, purchase and install an office network infrastructure as well as a server and two client PCs.
Menzies was also responsible for the configuration of the Dental Practice Management Software. A couple of years later, he was trained as a Dental Assistant and still assists his father every Sunday till this day.
Menzies opened up Overview Computer Services, LLC in January of 2010 and started to lease an office in the same Professional Building that his father practices dentistry three months later.
Overview deals in all kinds of computer service and repairs and specializes in IT work for Small and Medium Businesses. Overview takes care of over a dozen dental practices in the NY area. When not working with the frustrations of the IT world, Marc spends his time with his friends, family and girlfriend, Lauren who has recently started working for the company as the Operations Manager.
