Dr. Thomas Pausma

Dr. Thomas Pausma appreciates building a relationship with each patient so he can best perform dentistry that fits their individual needs.  He enjoys using the newest technology to supply patients with options in treatment, and to ensure the patient's comfort.  Dr. Tom's favorite part of dentistry is the patient's smile at the end of treatment that says their life has been changed.

Dr. Pausma attended University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee where he got a BS in Biology as well as an Honors Degree.  He then attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts.  Dr. Tom continues to take courses in many fields of dentistry including Implant Dentistry and Invisalign.  He is on track for a fellowship designation from the Academy of General Dentistry and wishes to pursue the title of Master afterwards.

While in Boston, Dr. Tom met his fiancé Gina, who agreed to move to Wisconsin under the condition that they start their family with a French Bulldog named Bernie.  Since moving back the three have enjoyed hiking the state parks of Wisconsin, cheering on our Packers and Badgers, and--when Gina allows a mess in the kitchen--the occasional home brew.

Dr. Pausma is excited to grow his roots in the Jefferson and Watertown area and to get involved in the community.  He looks forward to meeting the new and existing patients of Area Dental Clinic and continuing the legacy of great patient care for years to come.
