This is absolutely the best Dental practice that I and my family have ever encountered. Like most, we have been to multiple DDS offices and had more than a few Dentists over the years. A family member first referred us to Dr. Thomas and we have been with him ever since. This practice has always had a truly professional, friendly and considerate staff. Dr. T is gentle and explains everything clearly. They don't push unnecessary procedures and are flexible with appointment times. Cleanliness is everywhere, along with smiles.We have referred others there and will continue to do so. Yes, we are fans and happy to spread the word. There's no need to dread or delay your (quite necessary) dental care when you use these fine folks!!!

Here is my experience with Dr. Thomas. I have a very complicated mouth. Which includes jaw implants from previous jaw surgery , multiple fractured crowns, carries, and veneer implants with chronic decay. I have worked with many dentists, orthodontists, and endodontists . No one has given me the time, communication, and solid treatment plan like this man. He will take the time to explain your situation and the reality of it. He will work with you financially. There will always be optionsj. He will keep you comfortable during any procedure. He will see you for emergencies within reason . He has great hours. His facility is beautiful and his staff is great ! I could go on and on . I would absolutely recommend anyone here. Please if you have any anxiety due to the extent of your dental situation don't hesitate and go here!! Dr. Thomas and his staff will take care of you . They have taken such great care of me and I would be in a really bad place if I had not been referred here !

Professional, detailed, friendly that is what you receive when you enter the doors of Kurt R. Thomas, DDS office. I have been a patient for many years and Dr. Thomas and staff brought a calm to a white knuckle patient. Thank you all for that.

Skilled, caring, and professional staff, led by Dr. Thomas. Did things other dentists could not do, using new techniques and materials. Able to save teeth that were marginal. Excellent pain control. Tammy's prophylaxis not just a cleaning, but an education on better self-cleaning. Jan's billings and communications are for the patient's convenience and without flaw.
