  • Dr. Thomas Frankfurth

    Dr. Frankfurth graduated from The Ohio State University College of Dentistry in 1988. Prior to studying at dental school, he attended Washington & Lee University in Lexington, Virginia. Dr. Frankfurth has been practicing in New Tampa, Florida, for more than 20 years and has been in the new state-of-the-art building since 2003. Since he began practicing dentistry, Dr. Frankfurth has kept up-to-date on many continuing educational classes, ensuring that his patients receive the most comprehensive and advanced dental care.

    Dr. Frankfurth is a past president of the Hillsborough County Dental Research Clinic and a member of the American Dental Association, the West Coast Dental Association, the Hillsborough County Dental Association, and a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD).

    Earning Fellowship takes dedication to dental continuing education (CE) beyond graduation. Only about 6 percent of general dentists in the U.S. and Canada are AGD Fellows. When you see a dentist with FAGD after their name, you can rest assured that they care about knowing the latest techniques and best practices in dentistry. AGD Fellows practice these techniques in a classroom setting multiple times a year — not every dentist does this.

     To become an AGD Fellow, a dentist must:

     * Complete over 500 credit hours of CE
     * Earn over 350 of those 500 credits in live courses
     * Pass an exam equal in difficulty to board certification exam.s

    Dr. Frankfurth and his family are very involved in the New Tampa area through St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church and Hunters Green.
