Todd S. Resek, DMD, FAGD
Oakmont, PA Dentist Has a Prestigious Fellowship From Academy of General DentistryMeet Doctor Todd Resek Read Transcript
I have wanted to be a dentist my entire life. I got interested in it at around the age of 12. My former partner, Doctor Nader, was my dentist for about 47 years, and I went to school with some of his kids and grew up around him, and I just always found his work fascinating, working with people, working with my hands, and I was just drawn to it. It was never like a lightning strike, where I had to be a dentist, just an interest that I always had, and stuck with it, and am fortunate to realize that dream.
Grew up, City College graduate, and went on to University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine. Fantastic experience for me and a great dental school. I have done 1,300 hours' worth of continuing education after dental school. My motto is, “I want to be better tomorrow than I was today,”
and that revolves around learning more. The more you learn, the more you can help patients, the more you can offer them. They have requests of things they'd like me to do, and always interested in being a lifelong student. Keeps the profession very interesting for me.
The dentistry becomes second nature, but just the relationships that I've formed with my patients and my staff, over the years, has been super rewarding. I love taking somebody. I have a review recently. For a couple years, we've been treating sleep apnea. I have sleep apnea. I had a guy write me a review and tell me that I saved his life, literally.
We got him tested for sleep apnea and he had significant apnea and was being treated. Those relationships are invaluable to me.
In both his personal and professional life, Dr. Todd Resek strives to be better today than yesterday and better tomorrow than today. After earning a degree in biology from Grove City College and his DMD from the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Resek has been practicing dentistry for 25-plus years.
Dr. Resek is honored to have received a prestigious fellowship from the Academy of General Dentistry. This particular fellowship is not granted to many dentists and is a great achievement. He was also voted as one of Pittsburgh’s Top Dentists in 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018. Dr. Resek continues to take about a hundred hours of continuing education every year. He is also a member of the American Dental Association, Pennsylvania Dental Association, and AK Dental Society.
He is committed to using the latest dental technology to offer his patients the best standard of care. Thanks to his mastery of CEREC and CAD/CAM dentistry, he is a certified mentor at the Scottsdale Center for Dentistry, teaching other dentists how to use the innovative method for same-day dental restorations.
After Dr. Resek was diagnosed with sleep apnea, he wanted to help others suffering from this uncomfortable – and sometimes dangerous – condition. He learned to treat apnea and became a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, which educates its members on the most up-to-date methods for treating this sleep disorder.
Away from the office, Dr. Resek enjoys hunting in Allegheny County, PA and watching his three sons play baseball with his wife, Jessica.
