Tom S. Rohdy, D.D.S.
Thanks for taking the time to visit our website and to learn a little bit about what we have to offer you and your family.
I was born and raised in a small town in Michigan called Higgins Lake. It is a beautiful spring-fed lake about twenty-six miles in circumference. Warm summers on the lake, snowmobiling in the winter and no bumper to bumper traffic made growing up there wonderful. After graduating from Roscommon High School in 1991, I attended the University of Michigan where I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. While many of you may not be fond of Wolverine fans here in the Pacific Northwest I can assure you I'm actually a pretty nice guy. After Michigan, I moved out to New York City where I attended and graduated from Columbia University School of Dental & Oral Surgery in 2000. I ended up dating and eventually marrying, one of my classmates. My wife, Dr. Judy Chen, was admitted to the University of Washington's Orthodontics program which, obviously, brought us out to this great land of Washington. She is currently practicing in Redmond, WA.
I practiced dentistry for a couple years as an associate in another doctor's office before meeting Dr. Richard Mariani in Auburn. I purchased his office in 2003 and we worked together for the next 3 1/2 years. We have retained 100% of the staff which is a very good indicator of an office's stability and maturity. Our patients and staff tell me they are very happy Dr. Mariani was so careful in picking his successor.
My wife and I have two beautiful boys, now 7 and 9 years old. They pretty much consume all of our free time...which is the way it should be. I used to have a few hobbies, like auto racing at Pacific Raceways, that I have had to put on hold while we raise our little guys. When not following the kids around, I tend to keep myself busy with photography, computers, sports, music, home remodeling projects and fishing/crabbing/shrimping. I am always open to new experiences and love sharing experiences with my patients.
Choosing the right dentist for you and your family is a very important and, unfortunately, sometimes frustrating decision. A quick scan of the yellow pages can be overwhelming at times. I am a very honest, ethical and hardworking person. I feel I am very approachable and always open to suggestions and general discussion. I have invested heavily in the latest proven technologies so I can offer you the best dentistry currently has to offer. Our digital x-rays reduce radiation exposure by up to 70%. Our Cerec system allows us to create cosmetic crowns in a single visit without the need for impressions or temporaries. If you are looking for a high-quality dental office where you can feel comfortable and want a little more personal attention then I know you will feel at home with us!
