Coming Home: From Highlands High School to Kramer Family Dentistry

Dr. TJ Kramer and wife Kara Kramer in front of Kramer Family Dentistry 

Dr. Troy J. Kramer (TJ) remembers many afternoon walks to the Subway on North Fort Thomas Avenue to grab a bite to eat at lunchtime when he was a student at Highlands High School. More than a decade later he has established his dental practice along that very route.

Dr. Kramer grew up in Fort Thomas and spent many evenings on the Highlands football field as a linebacker and running back. He attended Georgetown College and Louisville Dental School where he received his Doctor of Medical Dentistry (DMD).

He and his wife Kara were married this past September and live in Fort Thomas. In January of 2018 they opened the doors of Kramer Family Dentistry in the space formerly occupied by Laura Bowman, DDS. The timing could not have been more perfect.

Fort Thomas Matters spoke with Dr. Kramer recently about Kramer Family Dentistry and his time on the football field at Highlands High School.


Fort Thomas Matters (FTM): What new services will Kramer Dentistry be offering for patients at this location? 

Dr. Kramer: At Kramer Family Dentistry we treat patients of all ages. We offer a wide range of dental services including root canals, extractions, and periodontal treatment. These services previously were not offered at this office. 

FTM: How would you describe your bedside manner and the atmosphere at Kramer Family Dentistry? 

Dr. Kramer: Our staff wants all patients to feel comfortable at our office. We want to get to know our patients, have conversations with them about things other than dentistry. Our staff and I are very approachable in this way. I am very determined to bring an energetic attitude to our office in order to keep every day fun and exciting for all patients. 

FTM: What aesthetic dental services are offered at Kramer Dentistry? 

Dr. Kramer: Cosmetic dentistry including veneers, teeth whitening, and bonding. 

FTM: Tell us about your experience playing football at Highlands.

Dr. Kramer: While at Highlands High School, I was fortunate enough to have been coached by the legendary Dale Mueller. Being a member of the football team helped form me into the person I am today but having Coach Mueller as a role model taught me discipline, hard work, perseverance, accountability and a good work ethic. These attributes have carried over into my dental practice and I am a better dentist because of them.

Dr. Kramer is happy to be back in Fort Thomas both as a resident and a new business owner - his days are spent improving smiles, catching up with friends, reminiscing about growing up in the Fort and establishing himself with new patients.

Kramer Family Dentistry is accepting new patients and takes more insurance plans. In addition to general dental services they provide many previously outsourced procedures. Services include crowns, dentures, fillings, extractions and root canals.
