Ralph (Tom) Dinges

Dr. Tom Dinges joined Dardenne Dental Arts in the summer of 2020. He graduated from Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine as well as Illinois Wesleyan University with BA in Biology.

Dr. Tom’s mission is not to only treat his patients’ dental needs, but to educate them on proper, preventative oral hygiene practices.  He utilizes his training in the most current dental techniques in order to achieve that mission daily.  His goal is to foster an environment where each patient he meets feels safe, comfortable, and knowledgeable as they work together to achieve oral health.

Outside of the office, Dr. T spends most of his time with his dog Bexlee. He likes watching  many different types of TV shows and movies, as well as spending time outdoors on walks and fishing . Being from Illinois, he was raised cheering on Chicago Sports teams, which brings him mostly pain and suffering. Still, Bear down, and go Cubbies.
