Dr. Thomas Olinger established his dental practice in La Mesa thirty years ago. In 1995, he built a state of the art facility next door to the La Mesa Historical Society, where he practices today. Here, he provides superior customer service, building patient trust as his first priority. He demonstrates a unique ability to insure that each patient feels special and comfortable. Graduating with honors, he received his bachelor's degree in biology from Bowling Green State University and his doctor of dental surgery degree from The Ohio State College of Dentistry. He then joined the Navy, which brought him to San Diego. Dr. Olinger has great respect and admiration for the military and is still serving as Captain in the United States Navy Reserve.
