Dr. Terry Thomas

With sad news, we regret to say that Dr Thomas has passed away. For over 35 years Dr Thomas loved caring for his patients dental needs. He went well beyond that however, as he took a great interest in getting to know them on a personal level as well. They became "family" throughout the years. He believed in really getting to know his patients and enjoyed improving their oral health in addition to educating them on how to maintain it at home.  He considered that to be a very important part of his practice philosophy. Dr. Thomas was a well respected dentist in his field.

Dr Thomas attended dental school at Loma Linda University: School of Dentistry. He graduated in 1981 and opened his practice in Rancho Bernardo in 1983. Southern California has always been his home, which is where he met his wife of 35 years. They are very proud of their son and daughter, who both graduated from college and are undertaking graduate school.

He always said: “I’ve been blessed here at Plaza Dentistry with the most amazing patients and look forward to coming to work each day and continuing to build an even stronger dentist-patient relationship". Dr. Thomas considered it an honor to be working in a beautiful office in Rancho Bernardo with a caring staff and wonderful patients, many of which were with him for many, many years! He will be missed by patients and staff alike!
