Thomas Trinkner, DDS

Glenn Van As
I was born and raised in Mt. Vernon, Ohio, and graduated from the University of South Carolina Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Marine Science. I then moved on to study at the Ohio State University College of Dentistry – graduating in 1983. Two years later in 1985, I began my private practice in Columbia, and have spent the past 25 years focusing on cosmetic and complex rehabilitation cases.
In 1998, I was awarded Accredited Member status by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry for Excellence in the Art and Science of Cosmetic Dentistry. I was the first accredited member from South Carolina.
I am also a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Equilibration Society, American Dental Association, and a Fellow in the Pierre Fauchard Academy. I currently teach as an associate at the L.D. Pankey Institute for the Esthetic Programs. I was selected to serve on the editorial board of Practical Procedures in Aesthetic Dentistry, Inside Dentistry, and am a former editor of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry Journal. I continue to lecture nationally and internationally in the field of Aesthetics and Complex Restorative Dentistry.
