Dr. Thomas Overmeyer was born in Ft. Wayne, Indiana and lived there until age 6. He moved to Defiance, Ohio, a small town just south of Toledo, and lived there until graduating from high school in 1974. He attended Ohio State University and graduated cum laude in three years with a Bachelor of Science in microbiology. The same year, he was accepted to dental school at Ohio State University and graduated with honors three years later in 1980.
Following graduation, Dr. Tom attended a prestigious one-year general practice residency program at the Medical College of Ohio at Toledo, where he did extensive study in many areas of general dentistry. Dr. Tom then had the desire to leave the cold north and head to Orlando, Florida. He landed in Orlando in September 1981 and began his career as an associate dentist with a local Spanish-speaking practitioner, Dr. Antonio Sanchez. Ninety percent of his patients only spoke Spanish, and he performed work with a bilingual assistant.
Seven months later, Dr. Tom purchased the practice of a dentist who was returning to specialty school. He officially took ownership in June 1982. Dr. Tom believed that it was the natural thing to do to progress from dental school to being an associate and then to being a practice owner. Dr. Tom and a group of other dentists decided to move to their current location at 3221 S. Conway Rd., where he has been practicing since February 1984.
Over the past 30 years, Dr. Tom has taken numerous continuing education courses and enjoys the many facets of dental treatment. He loves meeting and helping his many patients and creating awesome smiles that make them feel proud.
Dr. Tom is married with two daughters and one granddaughter. His daughter, Jessica, followed in his footsteps and became a dentist, and she currently works with him at his practice. Dr. Tom enjoys traveling, bowling, and watching college football.
