About Your Dentist

Joyce Thomas, DMD

“What I enjoy most about dentistry is building relationships with my patients and the opportunity to provide them with immediate and long term care that improves their physical and emotional well being and appearance. I find it particularly rewarding to treat children so that I can help them develop a positive attitude about dental care and understand the importance of a lifelong commitment to maintaining their oral health as a part of their overall health.”

My Mission

The subtleties in life are similar to the intricacies of the oral cavity. A warm smile, a strong handshake, and a hand to hold all present simple ways of comfort and a calming presence. A confident smile and a healthy mouth provide a strong foundation for success and positivity in life. My goal is to ensure that every patient leaves our office satisfied with their treatment so that they can enjoy the many benefits of excellent oral health.
