Jeffrey Thaller DMD

General Dentist
Took over practice October 1989. I was born in Brooklyn NY but always consider myself a New Jerseyan thru and thru.I have lived in Edison,East Brunswick,Marlboro and now reside in Monroe Township.From an early age, I wanted to become a dentist.Being a patient who needed a lot of dental care , in a era when dentists were not the best at performing pain free treatment, I knew I wanted to do better .I have always been a people person and enjoy working with my hands so dentistry was and is the perfect profession for me .I attended Hofstra undergraduate and UMDNJ Dental School (Rutgers).I found the perfect practice in Westfield where I have been practicing for over 30 years in the same building.I have always strived to run my office as a family dental practice where each patient is treated with respect while providing top quality care and treating everyone as if they were members of my immediate family. If you are looking for a boutique dental office in a warm inviting atmosphere, look no further and give us a call.

Joanne Tumblety

Office Manager
Part of our dental family since November 1989. I started working for Dr. Thaller over thirty years ago as a dental assistant. Since then, I have learned so many things about the dental profession, but the most important thing I’ve learned is how a positive relationship with a patient could make their experience that much better. Becoming office manager is something I am very proud of and I love greeting each and every patient as they walk through the door. I try to make every person feel like they are being taken care of. When I’m not at work I love spending time with my husband, two kids, and the rest of my family and friends. Luckily for me, the staff at Dr. Thaller’s has become my family too!

Registered Dental Hygienist
Joined our dental family October 2003. Many patients ask “Why are you a hygienist?”My reply is “Because, I hate going to the dentist. I understand COMPLETELY how unnerving it can be as you walk through our door. I strive to make your visit as pleasant and comfortable of an experience as possible. The highlight of my day is seeing people smile! When I am not in the office you can find me enjoying the outdoors, in the company of my family and menagerie of animals.
