Interview With Dr. John Thaler
Hi, I’m Dr. Jack Thaler, and I am a prosthodontist at By Design Dental Implant Center.
The patients who visit our office suffer from a variety of complex dental problems which result in tooth loss, including the natural aging process, traumatic facial trauma, neglect, or a medical condition such as diabetes. Whatever the issue, our team offers the best solution for replacing missing teeth – dental implant reconstruction.
When you choose to undergo the All-on-4 procedure at By Design, you will work closely with me to develop the most efficient and effective treatment plan for your personal restoration. I strongly believe in maintaining open communication throughout the entire process with my patients to ensure that they are completely satisfied with their results.
As a prosthodontist, I have completed years of specialty training focused on the restoration and replacement of missing and damaged teeth, particularly using dental implants. After receiving my dental degree from the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, University of Maryland, the world’s first dental school, I served in the United States Naval Dental Corps on active duty for over 9 years. During that time, I completed a general practice hospital residency at Portsmouth Naval Hospital, Virginia, and after 5 years of providing comprehensive dental treatment, I completed my combined prosthodontic residency training at the Naval Dental School, Bethesda, Maryland. I have served as a full-time assistant professor in the prosthodontics department at both the Southern University School of Dentistry and Temple University Dental School, and a part-time assistant clinical professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. I’ve trained students from their first year in the laboratory to their final year of their graduate prosthodontics residency. I enjoy presenting the concepts and techniques of prosthodontics using dental implants to study groups and at continuing education presentations.
The entire team at By Design is extremely dedicated to patient care in all aspects of implant dentistry, and I feel fortunate to be able to share this commitment with our patients during this truly life-changing experience. I hope to meet you in our office and look forward to working with you in achieving the wonderful smile that you deserve.
