Dr. Tom Charapata
Dr. Tom grew up in Cudahy, Wisconsin and graduated with honors from Cudahy High School in 1976. He received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee in 1980 before earning his Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) from Marquette University School of Dentistry in 1984. Dr. Tom immediately went into practice with his older brother, Frank, who passed away in 1998.
Dr. Tom is an active member of the Wisconsin Dental Association (WDA) and the American Dental Association (ADA). He is a founding member of the Trinity Study Club and the Milwaukee Chapter of the Seattle Study Club - both cutting edge continuing education programs for dental professionals.
Dr. Tom and his wife Chris have three children and live in Franklin. They like to spend time at their cabin in Rhinelander as often as they can; you'll see a few lake photos around the office. Dr. Tom stays active by playing racquetball in several weekly leagues, golfing, hunting and fishing. He was active in high school and college swimming and he coached age-group swim for over 12 years. He enjoys helping out at his church festival and monthly fish frys.
The friendly and sincere relationship that Dr. Tom has with his patients is felt the moment you enter our office.
