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.

Effects of Not Brushing Your Tongue
You probably already are aware that brushing your teeth is vital to good dental health. But have you ever considered the importance of brushing your tongue? Brushing your tongue can help remove any food particles or bacteria and prevent any negative effects that result.

Struggles with Bad Breath

Nobody wants to have bad breath. However, if you are not brushing your tongue, you are setting yourself up for issues here. Remember that the surface of your tongue is anything but smooth: on the contrary, it is covered with bumps, crevices, and pits where all sorts of odor-causing bacteria can hide.

If you do not brush your tongue, bacteria can collect in these areas. As a byproduct of their biological processes, the bacteria release compounds that contribute to bad breath. Meaning, if you are not brushing your tongue, you are setting yourself up for more issues with this embarrassing problem.

Health Issues

Of course, as embarrassing as bad breath can be, it is not the most dire outcome of not brushing your tongue. All those nasty bacteria that can hide in the pits and wrinkles on your tongue could do some real damage to your health.

Keep in mind, the bacteria procreate very quickly, meaning that they will raise the overall level of bacteria in your mouth—which lead to other oral health issues. For this reason, failing to brush your tongue can contribute to health problems down the road.
Next time you are brushing your teeth don't forget to brush your tongue. Your mouth will thank you for it.
