Dr. Tom Peirick

Hello, my name is Tom Peirick. I grew up in Watertown, Wisconsin where I attended St. Henry’s Catholic School throughout grade school. I went to Watertown High School where I played soccer, basketball and track & field which kept me busy throughout each year. I attended Marquette University for undergrad studies where I graduated with a major in Chemistry. Here, I enjoyed being outside with friends, heading down to the beach in the summer, attending Brewers and Bucks games and played numerous intramural sports. I decided to stay in Milwaukee to attend Marquette University School of Dentistry. I enjoyed calling Milwaukee home for 8 years, but look forward to what the future holds for me as I start my new journey as an associate dentist at Valders Dental Associates.
