Orlando Dentists Attend Training Seminar to Improve Patient Care

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - February 25, 2015) - Drs. Thomas and Jessica Overmeyer, of Overmeyer Family Dental, have attended their second communication seminar in St. Petersburg, Fla.

The doctors attended training for three days in both January and February and will attend another training session in March. The seminar teaches helpful mechanics of communication and how to strengthen interpersonal relationships with dental patients.

"Just by improving on our communication skills, we can find out more about the dental needs and wants of our patients," said Dr. Thomas Overmeyer, owner of Overmeyer Family Dental. "Sometimes patients are embarrassed to tell us about their dental problems, so I want to make sure my staff has the skills to make our patients feel as comfortable as possible."

Dr. Thomas Overmeyer has taken the training back to his staff. The Orlando dental practice serves patients of all ages and has staff members fluent in Spanish.

"I'm not only dedicated to providing the best care for our patients, I want their entire experience at our office to be incredible," Dr. Thomas Overmeyer said.

Overmeyer Family Dental provides preventive dentistry, affordable cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry for patients 3 years old to 103 years old. Individual services include fillings, extractions, wisdom teeth extractions, root canals, partial dentures, full dentures, mini and standard implants, porcelain veneers, Six Month Smiles, Invisalign, sleep apnea treatments and general dental procedures. The practice provides mouthguards for patients who grind or clench their teeth, as well as the "Silent Nite" anti-snore device.

Dr. Thomas Overmeyer was born in Fort Wayne, Ind., and graduated high school in Ohio in 1974. In 1977, he graduated cum laude from Ohio State University, receiving his bachelor's of science degree in microbiology in just three years. He then graduated from The Ohio State University School of Dentistry in 1980 and attended a general practice residency program at the Medical College of Ohio at Toledo. After dental school and his residency program, Dr. Thomas Overmeyer moved to Florida and spent seven months as a dental associate before buying his own practice. Dr. Thomas Overmeyer has advanced training in mini and standard implants, Six Month Smiles, Invisalign and LANAP laser gum treatment.

Dr. Jessica Overmeyer, a Florida native, received her bachelor's of science degree in biology from the University of Florida, where she also minored in business and Spanish. She also attended The Ohio State University School of Dentistry, graduating in 2014. She joined her father's practice last year. Dr. Jessica Overmeyer holds certifications in mini dental implants, Invisalign and Six Month Smiles.

Dr. Thomas Overmeyer bought the Orlando dental office that is now Overmeyer Family Dental in June 1982. Overmeyer Family Dental moved to a new office building in February 1984. The 1,500-square-foot facility was recently remodeled and includes six treatment rooms and state-of-the-art dental equipment. Dr. Thomas Overmeyer uses the PerioLase laser to treat periodontal disease, a method that he has found to be more effective than traditional gum surgery. He also uses digital X-rays to diagnose and educate patients about oral health issues.
