Dr. Tom Surber is a lifelong resident of northwest Indiana. He became interested in orthodontics at a young age, thanks to his experience with his own orthodontist, Dr. Carter, in the mid-1960s. Dr. Surber obtained his baccalaureate degrees in the sciences from Indiana University Northwest and Valparaiso University. He completed his DDS degree and received his postdoctoral certificate of orthodontic specialty at the Indiana University School of Dentistry in Indianapolis, an institution recognized for its clinical dentistry and orthodontic education. He has been practicing orthodontics since 1980 and is the man behind Orthodontic Affiliates’ clinic design and decor.
Dr. Surber has different interests beyond orthodontics. He is a commercial, multi-engine, instrument-rated pilot and excels in the field of music. He plays the piano and pipe organ, was a member of the Northwest Indiana Symphony Chorus, and is currently a vocalist for a church choir. Dr. Surber is also interested in scuba diving, boating, water and snow skiing, exotic cars, auto racing, and computers.
He lives with his wife and children in Valparaiso, Indiana, where they are active members of the Immanuel Lutheran Church. He and his family support Valparaiso University’s musical arts education and the local community as a whole.
