In his dentistry as in the rest of his life, Dr. Todd Resek always tries to be better today than yesterday and better tomorrow than today. After receiving a degree in biology from Grove City College, he earned his DMD from the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine. A dentist in the Alle-Kiski area for 25-plus years, he was awarded a fellowship from the Academy of General Dentistry, an honor granted to only 6 percent of general dentists.
One of the requirements for an AGD fellowship is taking hundreds of hours of continuing education, something Dr. Resek does gladly so he can stay up-to-date on the latest dental techniques. Another honor came from his peer dentists, who voted him as one of Pittsburgh’s Top Dentists for nine years. His professional memberships include the Pennsylvania Dental Association, the American Dental Association, and AK Dental Society.
Dr. Resek uses the latest dental technology so he can offer his patients the highest standard of care. One example is CEREC CAD/CAM dentistry. He is certified as a CEREC mentor at the prestigious Scottsdale Center for Dentistry. He has shared his expertise with area dentists, teaching them this innovative method for creating same-day dental restorations.
Dr. Resek met his wife, Jessica, when she was a dental hygiene student at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine. One of his proudest accomplishments was convincing her to work at the dental office where he planned to practice. Married since 1999, the Reseks are parents to three sons: Todd, Jack, and Sam. Jessica is now a gifted teacher at O’Hara Elementary in the Fox Chapel school district. Their eldest son, Todd Jr., is now attending Temple University.
An enthusiastic outdoorsman, Dr. Resek especially enjoys hunting with his boys and teaching them about wildlife. He stays in shape by playing baseball with them and has coached all of them at different times in their lives. Todd and Jack both played varsity baseball for the Fox Chapel school district.
