Dr. Thomas A. Schopler was raised in Hollywood, Florida. He attended local schools, including Little Flower Catholic School, Olsen Middle School. He also attended South Broward High School where he excelled at varsity basketball and earned an athletic scholarship to Loyola University, in New Orleans. Dr. Schopler studied at Loyola University for two years before transferring to Florida State University and later the University of Maryland in Baltimore. The University of Maryland is routinely ranked as one of the top dental schools in the country, and most recently was ranked # 1. He graduated from dental school in 1972 and went into private practice in Florida shortly thereafter.


Dr. Schopler began his implant education at the University of Miami’s Oral/Maxiofacial Surgery Mini Residency Implant Program, an intense year of implant education. The implant education Dr. Schopler has received over the years is second to none. He has been trained at over 12 U.S. Dental Schools in implantology, including the prestigious Misch Implant Institute at the University of Pittsburgh and the second ranked dental school in the US, Harvard University, School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Schopler is constantly improving and updating his implant knowledge. Most recently, in 2011, he attended an implant course hosted by the Massachusetts General Hospital, which is associated with the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. In addition to all of Dr. Schopler’s world class implant training, he was assisted and personally trained by Dr. Ken Whitson, a board-certified oral surgeon, in implant surgery for over 15 years.


Dr. Schopler likes to play golf, swim, reading, computers, and technology piques his interest besides dental implants; he likes to travel taking continuing education courses in all phases of dentistry. Dr. Schopler is also an avid model train enthusiast, especially American Flyer trains. He has done as a hobby redoing homes, which entails detailing carpentry work. He also enjoys caring for his elderly mother (94). Dr. Schopler has also been married to his wife, Theresa Schopler for over 38 years.
