About Dr. Tomaro

Dr. Arthur (Tony) Tomaro is a recognized academician and clinician, an accomplished author, and lectures nationally and internationally. His lectures emphasize the same concepts he practices: comprehensive dental health exams, diagnosis, and treatment plans; conservative esthetic dentistry and materials; smile design; evaluation, diagnosis, and restoration of worn dentition; and financial success (learned skills growing up in a family business). As a speaker for Catapult Education, Dr. Tomaro lectures on aesthetic dentistry and his unique process for natural smile design. He has dedicated his entire career to the advancement of dental education.

Dr. Tomaro received his DDS in 1980 from The University of Michigan and previously his BS and MS in Biology and Histology there. He enjoyed 26 years of private practice in Grand Rapids, MI. He then relocated to Las Vegas to become the Director of Clinics at the Las Vegas Institute and opened a private practice there in 2008.

Dr. Tomaro has completed extensive dental and other academic training, and is considered an expert restorative and esthetic dentist. His extensive and comprehensive knowledge of TMJ and his ability to understand complex occlusion has prompted dentists to not only refer patients to him but to seek him for their own personal treatment. There is a difference in cosmetic dentists. Dr. Tomaro is particularly famous for his style of veneers-smile design. Using facial landmarks to dictate tooth position can both enhance esthetics and conserve tooth structure. Each porcelain veneer is handmade by Dr. Tomaro’s personal ceramist who custom-blends the porcelain according to the patient’s desire and Dr. Tomaro’s direction for a natural-looking finish. No two patients will have the same smile. Thus, many Las Vegas celebrities and performers have sought Dr. Tomaro to create their new smile.

Dr. Tomaro serves on the editorial board of national dental publications and is an independent consultant and clinical researcher for many dental manufacturers and laboratories. Dr. Tomaro was awarded an ADA lifetime membership, was past Chairman of the Nevada Dental Association, is a present member of the Illinois State Dental Society, and the Chicago Dental Society.

In his free time, Dr. Tomaro enjoys spending time with his wife, Cheryl, and their four children. He also likes fishing, biking, and anything outdoors and of course, loves the vineyards.
