Thomas Capsey D.M.D.
Dr. Capsey has lived in Medford since the age of one. His father moved to Medford to start his dental practice and Tom followed in his footsteps. He attended University of Oregon and graduated from Oregon Health Science University School of Dentistry in Portland. He enjoys all aspects of dentistry from the simplest procedure to the most complex cases that make you think hard to achieve the best results possible. Dr. Capsey takes pleasure in treating multi generations from the little ones to their grandparents. He enjoys getting to know his patients and appreciates the feeling of community that our valley offers.
Since graduation from dental school, Dr. Capsey has continued his professional education by participating in numerous study clubs and continuing education courses. His particular areas of interest are the latest preventative techniques, newer tooth colored restorative materials, techniques for replacing teeth with dental implants, crown and bridge, as well as enhanced digital x-rays. Of most importance in Dr. Capsey's practice is the preventable nature of dental disease especially as it pertains to children. Good oral health is based on a foundation of prevention.
Dr. Capsey understands that not everyone has access to affordable dental care so he has served on the board and donates time treating children at the Children's Dental Clinic of Jackson County. He was also chairman of Southern Oregon Children's Dental Health Month for over 10 years. For the last two years, Dr. Capsey has participated in the Oregon Dental Association's Mission of Mercy (MOM) Clinic. This last year Dr. Capsey was involved in helping plan the MOM clinic for Southern Oregon. He was Chairman of the Dental Triage Department. It was a resounding success as over 1200 patients were treated and over $742,000 worth of dental care was donated free of charge.
Dr. Capsey is a member of the American Dental Association, Oregon Dental Association and Southern Oregon Dental Association. He has also served on the Southern Oregon Dental Society Board for numerous years.
Dr. Capsey and his wife Glenda have two sons; Scott and Brian. When not practicing dentistry Dr. Capsey enjoys outdoor activities including vegetable gardening, camping, fishing, hiking, and hunting. Traveling and technical gadgets are favorite indulgences.
