Meet Dr. Chamberlain
Dr. Tom Chamberlain
I was born in Reno, NV, and moved to Provo, UT, when I was a teenager. I graduated from Brigham Young University (BYU) with a BS in Psychology and a minor in musical theater. I loved my college experience in Utah.
I took some time during my studies to travel to Eastern Europe and Russia as well as much of the United States in a performing group. I met my wife (Tamara Marshall) in college. She is from Merced, CA. We soon moved to Portland, OR where I attended Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU) Dental School. Although dental school was challenging, I truly enjoyed my time in Portland and I made great and lasting relationships. My wife and I decided to settle in Arizona due to its warm climate, outdoor opportunities and proximity to family. We have loved our last few years here in the valley. We have four children, Kohler, Kelsey, Spencer and Hailey. In my free time I enjoy playing with my kids and coaching their soccer teams. I also continue to have a love for music and the arts.
My wife is a fantastic pianist and we perform periodically around the valley. Another of my favorite pastimes is snow skiing. I love to get up to the mountains in Utah and glide through the powder.
I was introduced to orthodontics during my dental school tenure. I had a friend in our apartment who was a resident in the orthodontic program at OHSU and he invited me to observe in the clinic when I was a sophomore. It was there that I felt I had found what I wanted to do with my career. I have loved working with both kids and adults in helping them improve their smiles. That is my primary reason for being in this wonderful profession: to be able to associate with so many extraordinary people.
They say orthodontics is a thinking person’s profession. I tend to agree. At work I begin with meeting the patient and assessing their orthodontics condition. I diagnose their case and provide a treatment plan to correct what’s wrong. During the treatment I see each patient and confirm that the case is progressing and make any necessary adjustments to help it move along as quickly as possible. It’s quite fulfilling to plan out a treatment and see it come to fruition.
I’ll be one of the first people you meet during your treatment. You’ll see me at almost every appointment.
