Jed W Taucher, DMD
Dentist in Medford, Oregon

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.

Times You Need to Replace Your Toothbrush
There are going to be multiple times where you need to change your toothbrush since it isn't sanitary for you to use the same toothbrush all the time. Toothbrushes also become frayed and less effective at cleaning your teeth if you do not replace them frequently enough. Here are some of main reasons you should replace your toothbrush:

When Cold Sores Flare Up
If you tend to get chronic cold sores, then you want to keep a lot of extra toothbrushes on hand. When you get a new flare up, you should change to a new toothbrush. This helps you avoid repeated contact with the virus when it remains on old bristles or handles, which could cause another flare up.

When You Get Sick
If you are already sick, you probably will not become reinfected by your own germs on a toothbrush, but your toothbrush is still an environment prone to carrying those germs. If you store your toothbrush close to other toothbrushes, such as your family's, your germs may be able to transfer to their toothbrush. Replacing your toothbrush is one way you can help reduce the risk of other people in your home getting sick.

After Three Months
Even if you haven't been sick or had a cold sore, if you have hit the three-month mark, you need to change out your toothbrush. It's not a good idea to use them longer than that. They won't brush your teeth as effectively, which can hurt your dental health in the long-run.
