Meet Our Doctors

Dr. Jim Tomassetti loves practicing orthodontics in the Fox Valley. “I love watching children and adults alike as they see their new smile for the first time. Some patients are insecure and timid in part because of their crooked teeth. To see them transform to confident individuals with higher self-esteem because of their smile is so rewarding. It is something I will never get tired of.”

A native of Altoona, Pennsylvania, Dr. Tomassetti and his family moved to Appleton after serving in the US Army Dental Corps. “Appleton (and the Fox Valley) is such a family friendly area and a great place to raise my children. That means a lot to me. I’m comfortable here and I want my patients to be just as comfortable. I want to treat everyone the way I want my family treated.”

Dr. Tomassetti completed his pre-dental requirements, majoring in Biology, at Juniata College in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. He then attended The University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, earning his Doctorate of Medical Dentistry (DMD) degree in 1993.
