I grew up in Scranton, PA. Yes, that Scranton from, The Office! After graduating from The University of Scranton in 2001 with a BS in Biology, I moved to Philadelphia to attend Temple University School of Dentistry. I graduated in 2005 earning my DMD. Upon graduation, I joined the US Army as a Captain and was stationed in Landstuhl, Germany. During my time in Germany, I deployed to 2 different theaters of operation, serving local nationals and military members of Afghanistan, Benin, and Iraq.
After completing my tour in 2012, I obtained my German Dental Approbation License and opened a private practice in Wiesbaden, Germany, which serviced military family members, US Consulate staff and Expats alike. I enjoy all aspects of General Dentistry, with a focus on Oral surgery and Implantology. While in Germany, I was trained and became a Nobel Biocare Certified provider. I pride myself in converting the most dental-phobic patients to dentist-loving ones with a great chair side comedy, bad singing, and somewhat “OK” dentistry! (See the comedy there already?!?)
I am the inventor of LinguaGuard. A dental suction device that is used to aide the dental assistant in suction and cheek/tongue retraction with the use of only one hand. Check out the website here: www.linguaguard.com I also have recently been appointed as a Board Member with the Washington State Department of Health.
I moved to San Antonio, TX in March 2017 and worked in private practice with my now wife Jackie for 2 years before returning to her hometown of Gig Harbor. I have 4 beautiful children; Madison, Sawyer, Ellie, and Torsten. We all enjoy the outdoors, water-sports and some family fun time! I am an avid sports fan and Classic rock enthusiast as well.
I am super excited to bring my talents to Silverdale Dental Center and look forward to working with everyone soon!
As of May 19th we are open for full-service, non-urgent dental treatment.
Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
You will be notified via text, email or a phone call in regard to your upcoming visit and our new check-in procedures.
Our office will communicate with you to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office. We will also take your forehead temperature when you arrive at our office.
We ask that you please wear a mask covering your nose and mouth when you arrive.
We want to minimize the number of patients in our waiting room and operatories, so unless necessary, please have accompanying people wait in the car during your appointment.
We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at (360)692-9560.
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
Dr. Jason Niemeyer, Dr. Jeffrey Phillips and the rest of the SDC team
