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.

What Your Teeth Get from You Eating Protein
When you eat protein, it helps your body in many different ways. It can help you build up muscle, and it helps rebuild many different tissues within your body. Your teeth also benefit from you eating protein. Not only do you get healthier gums when you eat protein, you also get stronger teeth and an overall healthier mouth simply by making sure to eat enough protein throughout the day. Here are a few things you can do to increase your protein intake.

How to Get Enough Protein

One thing you can do to get enough protein is to eat protein bars or drink protein shakes as your snacks throughout the day. This fills you up, provides a good boost of protein, and helps your body use the nutrients in those items where it needs. This can be done to replace a meal as well. However, you need to make sure that you are still getting a healthy balance of foods, not just protein.

Another thing you can do to increase your protein is to eat lean meats. Avoiding fattier foods and carbs allows you to fill your diet with more protein than before. If you prepare most of your own meals, make sure to cut off any excess fat from the meats that you choose to eat. That way you get the most protein possible, without the parts that are not as healthy for your teeth, or the rest of your body.

By eating protein, you can help strengthen your gums, teeth, and the rest of your body. If you want to find out how much protein you should be eating, give us a call. We can help you figure out the right amount for your specific needs.
