Dr. Tomsic is originally and proudly from “The Land” (Cleveland, OH). She completed undergraduate studies at John Carroll University in University Heights, OH where she graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry and a minor in Biology. She then attended the Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine in Boston, MA graduating cum laude and earning her Doctor of Dental Medicine doctorate. After graduation, she moved to Charlotte, NC to work at Carolinas Medical Center as a general practice resident, with a strong focus on oral surgery and oral medicine. Realizing that the hospital was the place she found most enjoyment, she pursued oral and maxillofacial surgery.
Dr. Tomsic completed her oral and maxillofacial surgery training at the Detroit Medical Center in Detroit, MI, working at Level I trauma centers Detroit Receiving Hospital, Henry Ford Hospital and St. John’s Medical Center. Training also involved rotations through Harper University Hospital and the Children’s Hospital of Michigan, encompassing a broad range of patients and cases.
While in the “D” she attended the Wayne State University School of Medicine, receiving her medical degree from the largest single campus medical school in the country. She then completed her PGY1 general surgery internship with the Department of Surgery at the Detroit Medical Center before completing her chief year of OMF surgery.
Dr. Tomsic then chose to further her training by moving to the nation’s capital to join the Posnick Center for Facial Plastic Surgery, completing a one-year fellowship in jaw reconstruction, orthognathic surgery, facial plastic surgery and sleep apnea surgery at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, DC under the direction of Dr. Jeffrey Posnick. During her fellowship she completed over 100 cases treating complex craniofacial deformities requiring orthognathic surgical repositioning, maxillo-mandibular advancement surgery and facial cosmetic surgery, becoming an expert in the treatment from start to finish. She decided to stay in the DC area a second year, where she worked at Washington Hospital Center, DC’s largest and busiest Level One trauma center, completing her PGY2 year as a general surgery resident, strengthening her surgical and medical background.
Finally, Dr. Tomsic relocated to the Saint Louis area to complete a one-year fellowship with the Oral Facial Surgery Institute and Mercy Hospital, focusing her concentration on facial cosmetic surgery and TMJ surgery. She then chose to stay with that group. During her tenure at Mercy she proudly obtained Fellowship in the American College of Surgeons in 2017.
She recently relocated back to her hometown of Cleveland, where she is now excited to give back and be a part of the community she holds so dear. Her main clinical interests include facial cosmetic surgery and facial rejuvenation procedures, orthognathic surgery, trauma, pathology, third molar and implant surgery.
