Ronald J. Tosch, DDSWhen patients meet Dr. Tosch for the first time, we usually hear the same thing, “He’s not at all what I expected!”
This is probably because Dr. Tosch could have just as easily wound up on a football field as in a dental office. Fresh out of High School, he was presented with a very difficult choice: 2 completely different College scholarships. Should he attend the University of Miami and utilize his athletic skill as a Linebacker, or concentrate more on his studies with a full Academic Scholarship to University of Central Michigan? Due to a lifelong dream of working in the health professions, he chose an academic route.
After spending his first 3 out of 4 years at the top of his class, caring for his wife Cindy, as she went through a very difficult pregnancy, took priority over class rankings. Ultimately, Dr. Tosch graduated 2nd in his class at Detroit-Mercy Dental School.
Over the last 25 years, there hasn’t been a single day that he hasn’t enjoyed coming to work. He enjoys meeting new people, catching up with others and working with a staff that feels more like family. We hope you will enjoy our office as much as we do!
Cindy ToschWithout Cindy, Tosch Dental would not be what it is today. She is the foundation behind the business. Every aspect of this practice has been finely tuned by her charisma, dedication and hard work. In the early years, she helped start the practice by running a dental lab utilized by many different dentists in the area. Today, she’s the one making sure we are all happy here at Tosch Dental. She has hand-picked each and every team member in hopes of creating a cohesive team—a family.
Annette DouniasWhen you call…Annette will answer! She has been the voice of Tosch Dental since 2001. Working tirelessly for our patients, she is happy to help in almost any situation. Whether its questions regarding treatment, appointment times or insurance benefits—Annette will find an answer. Over the years, Annette has become an essential part of our team and a complete joy to work with. Her kind heart and enduring patience makes her not only a great coworker, but an awesome friend.
Diane Barber, RDHAs many people in the community know, Diane has been a hygienist at Dr. Tosch’s for many years—since 1998 to be exact. She has a way about her that makes her patients feel more like old friends. With a truly kind and warm disposition, Diane represents our mission at Tosch Dental. We want you to feel “at home—even in the dental chair”. Diane has mastered this by just being herself. She is a true joy to work with, filling the office with a warmth that her coworkers couldn’t live without.
Michelle Tosch-Appiano, RDHMichelle likes to get to know her patients. She likes the fact that she gets to see each and every one of them 2 to 3 times a year. The best part of her job is the opportunity to help people in her community to smile just a little bit bigger—and hopefully more often! What’s still to come? After working with her dad for the past year (and many, many more to come), she’s currently in the process of putting together an Oral Hygiene Education Program for Preschool- and Elementary-age children.
Gina Saunders, RDAShortly after completing the Dental Assisting program at Carrington College, Gina came to our office as an intern in early 2010. Needless to say, with her positive attitude, enduring work ethic and easy smile, we could not let her leave. She was offered a permanent position as one of Dr. Tosch's assistants. Not only does Gina help ensure that the treatment of our patients runs smoothly, she has an incredible ability to put those around her at ease-a quality that is all too important in the dental setting.
Jessica CambronWhile Jess may be the newest member of the Tosch Dental team, she is by no means new to the Tosch family. Raised in Benicia, she has been a dear friend of the Doctor's daughter Michelle for many years. She has become an invaluable asset to the office in that she has an amazing ability to multitask. You may find her at the front desk answering questions, scheduling appointments and checking insurance benefits or chair-side assisting Doctor with treating patients, taking x-rays or sterilizing instruments. We feel lucky to have her as a part of our team.
