Dr. Tom Laster has become a trusted name in Corvallis for delivering high quality, cutting edge dentistry. With 40+ hours of continuing education each year, he is constantly engaged in researching new techniques and alternative approaches. Dr. Laster is an active member in the Southern Willamette Dental Society and the Kiwanis Sunrisers of Corvallis.
Taking hurting patients out of pain and calming the fears of anxious patients are two of Dr. Laster’s greatest joys in dentistry. He believes that a patient may never know how much careful work he puts into their dental work, but they will always know how much careful attention he gave to know them as people.
Tom taught high school physics in Texas before becoming a dentist, but fell in love with the Pacific Northwest and decided he simply couldn’t live anywhere else.
