Every patient is treated like family by Dr. Thomas and his staff. He considers that to be a very important part of his practice philosophy.

He is trained in many aspects of dentistry including cosmetic dentistry; such as crowns, bridges, veneers, bonding, composite restorations (tooth colored fillings), teeth whitening, etc. He also performs root canals, extractions, implant restorations, dentures, partials, flippers, sealants and much more. His objective is to do all of these procedures in the most gentle, pain free, kindest way possible for each patient, young and old alike.He is a true family dentist who cares greatly for his patients and the smiles he helped create!

Dr Thomas attended dental school at Loma Linda University: School of Dentistry. He graduated in 1981 and opened his practice here in Rancho Bernardo in 1983. Southern California has always been his home, which is where he met his wife of 32 years. They have one son and one daughter, both graduated from college, that they are very proud of.

“I’ve been blessed here at Plaza Dentistry with the most amazing patients and look forward to coming to work each day to care for their dental needs and get to know them even better on a personal level while continuing to build an even stronger dentist-patient relationship". Dr. Thomas considers it an honor to be working in a beautiful office in Rancho Bernardo with a caring staff and wonderful patients, many of which have been with him for many, many years!
