National Dentist Day is March 6th – this year and every year!

It’s a great time to think not only about dental health, but about the people who’ve helped you do the important work of protecting your teeth and gums. Although we all perform dental hygiene every day, most of us can’t keep our teeth in peak health alone.

For most, the family dentist is our trusted partner in keeping teeth healthy.

At Landmark Dental Group, we strive to provide patients with a respectful, relaxing, and reliable atmosphere for all their dental needs. We know that when you have a dentist you truly trust, you’re much more likely to get the dental care you need – and the health results you want.

On this National Dentist Day, we’re proud to honor someone who’s been integral to that mission: Dr. Thomas Young, a long-time part of the Landmark Dental Group family.

Dr. Thomas Young Personifies What it Means to Be a Trusted Family Dentist

Dr. Young has been a part of the Landmark Dental Group story since the very beginning. In fact, he was already successful in his practice when Landmark launched. As an independent startup, the Landmark team moved into the office space of Dr. Young, sharing the same space but as two separate practices.

Over the years, Dr. Young has provided invaluable support and guidance to many members of the Landmark Dental Group team. In 2016, Landmark was proud to acquire Dr. Young’s practice and formally welcome him as an associate dentist who works with Dr. Weston and Dr. Tran. Dr. Young has enjoyed the chance to set management duties aside and focus exclusively on dentistry.

Dr. Young’s Accomplished History – Inside the Dental Office and Out

Dr. Young graduated from dental school at the University of Michigan and has practiced for more than 40 years – getting started in 1974. He loves connecting with his patients, building strong relationships with them, and helping them improve their quality of life through dentistry.

He remains very active in both the profession and his community, including advisory roles in a number of dental groups, including the Dientes Community Clinic here in Santa Cruz. He contributes to the Monterey Bay Dental Society, is a member of the Academy of Cosmetic and Adhesive Dentistry, and is a devoted supporter of CASA – the organization of Court Appointed Special Advocates for abused or neglected children.

Outside of the office, you can often find Dr. Young sailing and enjoying the magnificent Santa Cruz environment. He loves sharing his outdoor adventures with his extended family: He raised two daughters and has four fantastic grandchildren!

Dr. Thomas Young has been a huge part of making our practice what it is today. He now works at the office two days a week, but his presence is felt even when he is not around. From all of us at Landmark Dental Group, thank you, Dr. Young! We are honored to have you as a colleague and friend!
