Meet Your Tacoma Dentists

She completed advanced training in general dentistry through the Northwest Dental Residency in Yakima, WA.
Outside of dentistry, Dr. Whalen enjoys playing tennis, hiking, cooking and spending time with family and friends.
DR. Christopher tobler
I grew up primarily in Southern California, spending most of my time at the beach. I loved to paint and draw and worked as a graphic designer both in high school and then in college at BYU in Utah. Eventually, I changed course and pursued dentistry, which took me to Indiana University to get my DDS degree.
After working for several years as a graphic designer, I realized that dentistry was a better fit. I love the people I get to associate with every day. That includes both my patients and incredible team!
I’m married to the love of my life, and we have two boys. I still enjoy spending time at the beach or in the ocean, but I equally love spending time in the mountains and on trails. I play the guitar and the piano and adore just about any kind of music.
