Dr. Bolt’s Approach

I believe that health is of infinite value. My mission is to provide excellence in dentistry in a low volume, private care environment.

It is my experience that when given accurate information and the right support in a nurturing environment, people will make choices that have a positive effect on their dental health. Through exploring the needs and wants of the patient, I help to set goals for a lifetime plan. This lifetime plan cultivates an interdependent relationship, by which the patient assumes responsibility for their own health.

TJ Bolt Dentistry in Omaha, NE focuses on patient health and not just dental treatment. Our experienced team provides a wide array of professional dental services, but our core philosophy is what makes us different than 95% of other dentists!

Dr. Thomas J. Bolt, DDS

Relationship To Health

There must be a good relationship between the teeth, chewing muscles, and joints. If the relationship is out of balance, a person can suffer. We can help you get to the cause of the problem. You do not have to suffer.


Health Based Dentistry

Dental Disease is a Choice, You Don’t Have to Have it if you Don’t Want to:

All patients receive a comprehensive examination. Based on the results, we work with them on a proper diagnosis and treatment plan and review the findings with the patients. I see one patient at a time in a very private and quiet atmosphere. I work on the fact that the mouth is the pathway to the rest of the body. The mouth is also a part of a chewing system. We focus on the cosmetic aspects as well as the way the teeth relate to the joints and chewing muscles. By approaching dentistry in this manner, people will look good, they will feel well, and they will be able to chew well. This sets the foundation to create a smile that lasts for a lifetime.

Signs of Dental Disease

If you experience any of the following symptoms, it may be a sign of dental disease that could have long term effects to your systemic health.

Meet Dr. Bolt

Dr. Thomas J. (TJ) Bolt graduated from Creighton University School of Dentistry in 1984. He received his undergraduate degree in Biology from Creighton University in 1979. He opened his first dental practice in 1984. In 2002, he relocated his practice from 90th and Fort Street to its current location.

While developing his practice in Omaha he also worked as part-time clinical instructor at the Creighton University School of Dentistry until 1994. His love of knowledge and commitment to his patients, sent him on a journey of continual learning that includes completion of the continuums at the prestigious LD Pankey Institute in Key Biscayne, Florida and as well as the completion of all of the programs at The Schuster Center in Scottsdale, AZ.

Our Team & Office

Our Team

One of the greatest rewards for Dr. Bolt is the team he has surrounded himself with to provide his patients the best possible dental care Omaha has to offer. Both experience and a passion for service play key factors in the success of his team…and it shows.

Peaceful Suite

A Dental Office Designed With YOU in Mind

The goal when creating my office was comfort, safety, privacy, and tranquility for our patients. I believe that people should be treated with dignity and respect, therefore, we have doors on all of our rooms in order to honor their privacy. We also have many areas available to talk. We have a large consultation room where we meet to discuss your goals and treatment plans. We encourage you to bring family who helps you in your decision making. This room is also used for staff development as well as teaching other doctors this unique approach of health centered care.

The Reception Area is purposely small and cozy… we see one patient at a time and always strive to see you on time for your appointment.

Both Treatment Suites are designed with state-of-the-art equipment. I created a Master Treatment Suite with a table and chairs so that we have a place to answer your questions should you have any prior to beginning your treatment that we have agreed upon.
