Dr. Tatum Schad
Dr. Tatum Schad is happy to be making his dental home here at Dental Elements. Originally from North Platte, Nebraska (just down the road from Dr. Heubner’s hometown), Dr. Schad graduated from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln in 2014 with his Bachelor of Arts in Classics and Religious Studies. He then attended school at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) College of Dentistry, graduating in 2018.
He and his wife Rachel then moved to New York City, where Dr. Schad completed his Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency at New York University/Langone Hospital in Manhattan. His time at NYU focused on treating patients from all walks of life and from all around the world with an easygoing attitude learned from growing up in a small town. After residency, Dr. Schad worked in private practice in Brooklyn before they decided they missed the open spaces of the Midwest, and moved closer to home.
Through his experiences in a wide range of dental clinics, including a week-long mission trip treating patients in Treasure Beach, Jamaica, Dr. Schad has put an emphasis on ensuring all patient’s needs and concerns are met. He has worked with a wide range of dental materials and technology to provide patients with the most current treatment.
Outside the office, Dr. Schad enjoys spending time with his cattle dog mix pup and buying way too many books at thrift stores. He is an avid reader, and always welcomes a new book recommendation! He also spends time writing, hiking, golfing, traveling, and devoting all fall Saturdays to Husker Football
