As a 1982 graduate of the University of Toledo and a 1986 graduate of The Ohio State University of Dentistry, Dr. Tomase has dedicated his professional career to providing his patients with outstanding dental care.
What led Dr. Tomase to the field of dentistry? “My own dentist encouraged me to consider this field as I was growing up. I’ve always loved science, working with people, and making a difference in the lives of others – and this career has certainly given me that privilege.”
To consistently deliver this exceptional care and combined with the firm belief that we all are lifelong learners, Dr. Tomase frequently attends continuing education courses. He and his team are well-versed in the newest dental techniques and technologies, implementing dental innovations to provide patients with advanced, comfortable, personalized care.
Dr. Tomase’s postgraduate education includes extensive coursework at the Pankey Institute for Advanced Dental Education, the Midwest Implant Institute and the LSU School of Dentistry’s Academy of Continuing Education. He has also personally trained with Dr. Larry Rosenthal, a nationally acclaimed cosmetic dentist in Manhattan.
Dr. Tomase is a member of the American Dental Association, the Ohio Dental Association, the Toledo Dental Society, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, American Academy of Implant Dentistry, the Pankey Institute and is an Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of Toledo Medical Center.
In addition to practicing dentistry, Dr. Tomase appreciates time spent with his family, including his wife Teri, a corporate trainer, and their 3 children. Their oldest son Jeff is a dentist in Florida. Jeff and his lovely wife Melissa are new parents to son Luca, giving Dr. Tomase and Teri the proud title of grandparents. Their daughter, Jordan, works in marketing/public relations and youngest son Jonathan is employed with a Toledo-based company.
Dr. Tomase and Teri enjoy traveling (especially visiting their grandson in Florida), and find the area of Traverse City particularly beautiful. In the autumn they can be found in Columbus, Ohio cheering for the Buckeyes and summers are spent with family and friends enjoying cookouts in the backyard.
Dr. Tomase loves physical fitness and enjoys playing golf. He also stays fit by chasing after the family’s pets.
