Dr. Thomas Skoumal, or Dr. Tom as his patients call him, grew up in West Des Moines before earning his doctorate of dental surgery at Creighton University. While still in dental school, Dr. Tom spent a month in the Dominican Republic providing free dentistry for families in the village of Guanabano. He also volunteered in an after hours dental clinic for a number of years while in Omaha, Nebraska. Starting in 2012, Dr. Tom worked for a practice in Freeport, Il. He has taken over 200 hours of continuing education on various topics such as: Invisalign, implants, braces, root canal therapies, occlusal rehabilitation, and many other advanced areas of dentistry. Dr. Tom transitioned into Dr. Charles Kallstrom's practice in 2014. He constantly reinvests in his education and believes the first step in dentistry is to listen to the patient.
