Dr. Skoumal

Thomas Skoumal, DDS, PC

Dr. Thomas Skoumal, or Dr. Tom as his patients call him, grew up in West Des Moines before earning his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at Creighton University.

While still in dental school, Dr. Tom spent a month in the Dominican Republic providing free dentistry for families in the village of Guanabano. He also volunteered in an after hours dental clinic for a number of years while in Omaha, Nebraska.

Starting in 2012, Dr. Tom worked for a practice in Freeport, Il. He has taken over 200 hours of continuing education on various topics such as: Invisalign, dental implants, braces, root canal therapies, occlusal rehabilitation, and many other advanced areas of dentistry. Dr. Tom transitioned into Dr. Charles Kallstrom's practice in Geneva in 2014 and then into Dr. Harry Krauspe's practice in Elburn in 2017. He constantly reinvests in his education and believes the first step in dentistry is to listen to the patient.

Dr. Tom has volunteered his time at the in St. Charles where he provided free dental care for the underserved. Dr. Tom has been active in the Boy Scouts of America community (he is an Eagle Scout with Gold Palms) and is a merit badge counselor for various merit badges, including dentistry. If scouts from any troop have an interest in the dentistry merit badge, he will be more than willing to work with them.

Registered Dental Hygienist

Bridget has worked with Dr. Tom since 2018, mostly in the Elburn office, although you will also find her in Geneva on occasion. Bridget graduated from College of DuPage in 2015. Her passion is patient education, and she takes pride in providing a thorough and gentle cleaning every time. Fun fact, Bridget is left-handed, so Elburn patients, if that hygiene room looks different it’s because the chair has been turned to accommodate a left-handed practitioner!

The youngest of 6 children, Bridget has 9 nieces and 3 nephews, and a lot of her free time is spent with her large family. Other than that, she can be found chilling at home with her black cat, Kobe.

Trisha team photo


Office Manager, Elburn

Trisha began her dental career as a chairside assistant when she was a junior in high school. After several years of working chairside she moved to the front desk in the 90’s and has been keeping the office running smoothly ever since. Trisha was excited to join Dr. Duke Krauspe when he opened his solo practice in Elburn in 1995-and Dr. Tom inherited her when he purchased the practice in 2017. You will find her at her desk in Elburn most days, and once a week or so helping out in the Geneva office as well. Her favorite part of the job is by far the relationship with the patients-some of whom she met as children, who now bring their own kids into the office. Trisha and her husband have three amazing grown daughters of their own, and they are still getting used to the quiet of being empty nesters. But the dog and the cats do their best to keep things interesting!
