Meet the Doctor


Dr. Thomas J. Thacker

Dr. Thacker was born in Washington, D.C., but raised in Key Biscayne, Florida. He attended Florida State University for his undergraduate studies and graduated with the Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. After brief stints in the U.S. Army Dental Corps and as an associate dentist in Ft. Lauderdale, he and his family settled in Tallahassee. Dr. Thacker is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Dental Association, the Florida Dental Association, and the Leon County Dental Association. He is also a graduate of Leadership Tallahassee and has been a member of the Tallahassee Kiwanis Club for many years.

For Dr. Thacker, one of the joys of dentistry is getting to know his patients and taking the time to get acquainted with their concerns. Since his practice focuses on restorative and cosmetic dentistry, creating a new smile for his patients brings a smile to his face. Helping his patients overcome their dental anxiety is another rewarding aspect of his practice.

It is Dr. Thacker’s belief that learning should never stop and that dentistry is always changing. With that in mind, he is actively involved in postgraduate dental education and has attended numerous continuing education meetings and seminars throughout the years. As an example, Dr. Thacker has taken over 350 hours of courses at the prestigious Pankey Institute, a leader in postgraduate excellence in dental education. He is also currently involved with a Spear Education dental study club here in Tallahassee.

Dr. Thacker and his wife are actively involved in their church (Four Oaks Community Church), where he serves as an elder and also leads a home study group. When not spending time with his two children, their spouses, and five granddaughters, he enjoys fishing, boating, and FSU sports.
