Meet Your Tacoma Dentists


Dr. Leslie Whalen

Dr. Whalen was raised in Gig Harbor, WA and is pleased to be practicing dentistry back in her community. She completed her undergraduate studies at Western Washington University and earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Marquette University School of Dentistry. 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.

‘Helping others has always been a passion of mine. Nothing makes me feel better than a client saying "thank you" as they leave with a smile on their face. Every year I spend countless hours attending various continuing education courses so that our office can continue to provide the most advanced and up-to-date patient care possible.

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.


Dr. Winskill and his dental dream team are ready to take care of your dental health.  Dr. Winskill graduated from University Of Washington in 1983. He has 2 boys, Christopher who has been on life support since he was 3 months old and is now 29 and Matthew who is 20. Dr. Winskill and his wife Jan have been very involved in the community and have started a charity called TOYS For KIDS of Intensive Care Families.  They provide Christmas toys for ill children and their siblings.  Please see the TOYS FOR KIDS page of the website for more information.  Dr. Winskill received the Washington State Dental Associations CITIZEN OF THE YEAR 2008 for his work with TFK and providing dentistry for those in need in our community.  He also received the PLU Alumni Community Service award 2008 for his service as well. Dr. Winskill and his team are committed to providing quality dental care with personalized attention to your total dental health as well as helping those in our community in need.

We look forward to meeting you.

Tops as the best dental office I have been to in my life...The dental team is super attentive and friendly. From firsthand experience, the front office staff will put in a great deal of effort to make sure you are seen as promptly as possible if you're experiencing pain or discomfort. Great people

He’s the best in the Northwest! I hated going to the dentist because of childhood trauma associated with dental visits. I was referred by a friend that he was great and I can testify that he is great. He’s entire crew is! No judgement all remarks or unnecessary treatments, just what you need. If you don’t want to take out your wisdom teeth and they are healthy, you don’t have to be pressured to take them out unless you have to. Love love love you Dr Winskill 🤗

Years ago I used a dentist that basically did horrible work and as a result most of what he did has been redone. I've been going to Dr Winskill for the last 11 years. His work is second to none. As a result, I have sent him several referrals and they continue to be his patients. One of his hygienists, Elaine, is very skilled and does a great job cleaning my teeth. I highly recommend Dr Winskill and his staff.
