When you talk to Dr. Jennifer Thomm about dentistry, her passion is evident. “I was always fascinated by the unique mix of health care, artistry and technology,” she explains. If you visit her office at B-1323 Michigan Avenue, you’ll see clear evidence of her passion. She proudly describes how her Cerec machine can rebuild a crown in just over an hour, working much the same way as a 3-D printer. The machine creates a beautiful, durable finished product, all while the patient waits. This machine represents an exciting new offering for her practice.
Dr. Thomm graduated from dental school at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio in 2003 and soon returned home to Sarnia. She never planned to run her own practice. “Initially I thought I’d work for someone else. However, I built such strong relationships with my patients that when the previous owner of the practice indicated he was retiring, I felt that I had to take over. I couldn’t stand the thought of leaving my patients and having to start over somewhere else,” she explains.
