Meet Dr. Toolson


dr toolson and familyDr. Toolson is a native San Diegan who has enjoyed living and working in Encinitas since 1990. He and his wife Janette are blessed to be the parents of six wonderful children.  When he is not in the office he enjoys spending time with his family, water skiing, snow skiing, cycling and playing tennis.

Dr. Toolson attended Brigham Young University where he studied and prepared for dental school.  He attended Loyola University School of Dentistry, the same dental school where both his father and grandfather received their DDS degrees.  Dr. Toolson graduated at the top of his class with honors from Loyola University and then began his orthodontic residency at the University of Illinois at Chicago.  The orthodontic program at the University of Illinois was the first university affiliated orthodontic program where many of the pioneers of modern orthodontics were trained.  At the University of Illinois Dr. Toolson completed an original research project on a Temporomandibular Joint related subject for which he earned a Masters of Science Degree in Orthodontics.

Dr. Toolson is often asked, "Would you do it all over again?" In other words, would he go through all the years of school, exams, expenses, etc in order to become an orthodontist?  The answer is, YES!  He loves what he does and feels very fortunate to work with so many wonderful people to help create beautiful smiles.
