Jed W Taucher, DMD
Dentist in Medford, Oregon

office@drtaucher.com

I was born and raised in Central Point, OR. I've wanted to be a dentist from a very young age and I have always had a passion for the practice and art of dentistry. I feel incredibly privileged that I am able to use my education to contribute to the oral health of my hometown. I enjoy being able to provide quality care for my patients in a welcoming, comfortable environment.

Education and Continuing Education


I studied Biology at Oregon State University and graduated with my Bachelor's degree in 2008. I continued on to the Oregon Health & Science University School of Dentistry where I earned my Doctorate of Dental Medicine in 2012. I then completed a one year General Practice Residency at The Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawai'i before returning home to the Rogue Valley.

I am a member of the Southern Oregon Dental Society, the Oregon Dental Association, the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Public Health Dentistry. I participate in all of these organizations to ensure that my patients always receive the highest quality care possible using the latest knowledge, techniques and materials available.

Family Life


In my free time I enjoy running in many events (including Tough Mudder, Warrior Dash, The Rogue Run and the Rogue Valley Relay Challenge), playing golf, stand-up paddle boarding, going to the movies and spending time with my family and friends.

Great Snacks for Healthy Gums
Having healthy gums takes work. It doesn't just miraculously happen simply because you want it to. The way you take care of your mouth and what you eat have a significant impact on just how healthy, or unhealthy, your gums really are. If you are carefully maintaining your gum health with thorough brushing and flossing, then it is important you eat the right foods to make sure you are doing everything possible to keep your gums really healthy.

Snack Items to Regularly Consume for Healthy Gums

Produce should be your go-to snack if you want to have healthy gums. While it may not always taste as good as the sweet or starchy snacks and treats, it is far better for your body. Fruits are a great alternative if you are looking for a sweet snack, especially if you buy fruits that are in season. Also, don't forget about adding more vegetables into your diet since eating raw leafy greens and celery will help your gums stay healthy.

Ideally, you want to eat your produce with the skin on since the skin contains fiber that is beneficial to your overall health. This skin is what pushes on your gums, stimulating them to hold tight to your teeth. Plus, it scrubs off the tartar on your teeth with each bite you take.

Planning out your snacks ahead of time can help you get the healthiest mouth possible. Taking care of your gums and teeth can also help you keep your body healthier overall. To learn more about taking care of your gums, ask us at your next appointment!
