Dr. Thomas Gensbigler was born and raised right here in Hampden Township. He is the son of Dr. Joseph Gensbigler who started the practice nearly 50 years ago. He started his educational path at Cumberland Valley High School. After high school, he attended college at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, PA, and then went on to dental school at the University of Pittsburgh. At dental school, he was among the top students and was awarded an Air Force scholarship. After dental school, he joined the United States Air Force and was accepted into the Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency program at Travis AFB in California. This residency program established a strong foundation in all aspects of dental care. In his remaining two years in the Air Force, he was a staff dentist at Hurlburt Field, Florida. At this location, he perfected his oral surgery skills as he extracted a large number of 3rd molars for the clinic. After three years, he joined his father's practice in September of 2000 as an associate and eventually became a partner at West Shore Family Dentistry. During these years of practice, he has continued his education by taking many courses and lectures. Thomas eventually earned his Fellowship In the Academy of General Dentistry, an award given to those who have earned over 500 hours of CE and pass a difficult, written test. He is also an active member in the Pennsylvania Academy of General Dentistry, the Harrisburg Area Dental Society, the Pennsylvania Dental Society, and the American Dental Society. Dr. Gensbigler also has numerous other interests and activities. First and foremost is his family. He has a wife and three boys. Most of his free time is involved participating and helping in their many activities. He is also an avid tennis player and plays on a 4.5 USTA team during the summer. His other interests include fishing, jogging, traveling, hiking, and biking. Dr. Gensbigler is an active outdoorsman and enjoys any chance he gets to participate in these activities.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gensbigler "The people at West Shore Family Dentistry are committed to providing the best dental care for our patients. We start with our doctors who are continually taking advanced courses in dentistry to improve their skills and knowledge. Because of this knowledge, you do not have to be referred out for most of the specialty care, rather, our doctors can perform root canals, extractions to include wisdom teeth, dentures and partials, implants, crown and bridge, periodontics, snoring and sleep apnea dental appliances,limited orthodontics, pediatric care, and TMJ disorders. They are also compassionate and understanding and will help make your dental experience as enjoyable as possible. Our staff likewise is committed to providing that same enjoyable experience. Their professional, friendly nature will help you feel at ease. Because we are a family dentist, we treat all ages and can be the dentist for the entire family. We treat children from 3 years of age and will work with the child to complete most dental procedures. Because we do not put children asleep, we refer out those children with extensive work or who are extremely apprehensive. Prevention for children is our strength. Our skilled dental hygienist will educate the children on brushing, flossing, and food chokes. This education started at an early age with consistent 6 month recall will help prevent a lifetime of possible tooth decay and dental problems. This same emphasis on prevention is seen on all our patients. If we find patients starting to develop cavities, we attempt to figure out why and correct any diet or brushing concerns. We want to develop a lifelong relationship with our patients and their families. Our last mission is our commitment to you the patient. We pledge to be there when you need us most: a dental emergency or toothache. We are open 5 days a week and have a dentist on call every evening and weekend to provide that peace of mind. If an emergency occurs, we will address the concerns immediately and schedule the required treatment. Thus, our office will work hard to provide you with a great dental experience using the latest technology, the most competent and caring staff, and highly skilled and professional dentists."
