logomark Meet Dr. Ed

“I love my work and my patients can tell. I have been fortunate to have treated ‘generations’ of families! Parents, their children and now, their grandchildren are my patients. What better way to know you have made a difference in so many lives than to have patients who feel that they can recommend my services to other family members and friends.  It is the best compliment I can receive.” ~ Dr. Ed Tobias

My practice has allowed me  the opportunity to meet new patients, families and friends. I  have built upon a broad range of dental training, continuing education plus, 25+ years in family practice. Our practice focus is “Teeth for Life”. In our office you are more a guest than a patient, more like coming home than going out for an appointment. How else can you explain the attention you receive when you are here?

Whether children or older adults, Dr. Ed Tobias has a caring and practical approach to the practice of preventive as well as corrective dentistry. He appreciates the nuances of “When is a headache, a toothache?” Or, is the course of treatment more important than the “number of visits” – given your personal, business and family situation. Or, how about having Saturday office hours because that’s what is convenient for working parents.?

What our Patients are saying



Our son had numerous problems with his teeth and gums. Dr. Tobias efficiently and effectively guided us thru several rounds of braces and mouth surgery with the least amount of pain and interruption. We can not recommend any Doctor more highly than we would recommend Dr. Tobias.
