Our Mankato Dentist explaining treatment options to a patient
Born and raised in the Greater Mankato area, Dr. Tom Pooley was attracted to the autonomy that dentistry provides. He worked at a local dental laboratory prior to attending dental school, but since then has flourished as a general and cosmetic dentist.

Dr. Pooley feels privileged to help patients in his local communities and enjoys helping rebuild smiles for those with deteriorating dentitions.

‘‘The best part of my job is seeing the joy people feel when they see their new smiles for the first time."

Outside of the office, Dr. Pooley enjoys many activities, some of which include water skiing, downhill skiing, softball, boating, biking, and playing cards. He lives in Mankato and is married to Hilary, with whom he has two children, Noah and Garrett.
