Dr. Jacob Fimple, an Omaha native, is proud to be part of the Omaha community. He greatly enjoys nature and strives to maintain fitness as an integral part of his life. Outside of the office, most of his time is spent with family.
Through endodontic therapy, Dr. Fimple expresses his desire to provide care to people on a daily basis. In particular, Dr. Fimple finds it most rewarding to offer comfort and relief to patients in pain and to preserve teeth that would otherwise be lost. Seeing patients resume their normal life after an infection or serious tooth-ache is very satisfying. Dr. Fimple possesses a natural ability to empathize with patients and he understands the patient’s need for comfort and attention.
This exciting field of dentistry has been blessed with a vast number of recent advances. “I believe it is my duty to incorporate available technology that is proven safe, in an effort to offer the most comfortable and effective treatment to my patients.”
Our office employs digital radiography, which has been shown to reduce the radiation exposure to patients by as much as 90%. Additionally, images are displayed instantly and the need for toxic chemicals is eliminated. What’s more, we have dental operating microscopes which allow for extreme magnification inside the tooth to look for extra canals, cracks, and other factors that could affect the prognosis of the treatment.
Dr. Fimple enjoyed the great experience of serving patients in a private practice setting for three years in the Boston area. Additionally, instructing students at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine as well as currently at Creighton University’s Dental School. This has offered Dr. Fimple the opportunity to contribute knowledge and experience to our future dentists.
