Best dentist ever!!! James Thomas always provides the best service for my family and I. His staff is top notch and there is nowhere else I’d go for routine service and the bigger issues that arise.

This dental office combines a high level of professional care with the right personal touch. It is consistently demonstrated by the dentist, hygienists, assistants and office management. I would suggest more feedback from the dentist even when things are not problematic. I would like to know what else to be aware of as an aging patient in how to be more preventative and proactive in addition to brushing and flossing.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Thomas for about 8+ years now. Everyone from the front office staff, the hygienist, and Dr. Thomas have been wonderful without exception. I’ve recommended and will continue to recommend his practice.
