Dr. Thomas was raised in Russellville, Arkansas, at the time, a small town in the Northwest area of the Natural State, where he graduated high school. He enjoyed music, biking and hiking in the many great State Park trails around the area hills and mountains. He started his college education in Chemistry in Arkansas. He transferred after his Sophomore year to Oral Roberts University where he obtained a B.S. in Biomedical Chemistry.
During his junior year of college, he applied and was accepted to dental school via the early acceptance program for the Class of 1986. As part of his dental education, Dr. Thomas completed a U.S. Public Health Service dental clinic rotation at the Claremore Indian Hospital, which influenced him to begin his dental career in public health. Dr. Thomas received a commission as a Lieutenant and spent the next five years working for the USPHS being first assigned to the Indian Health Service clinics in Oklahoma and then as a Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Coast Guard.
In 1991, Dr Thomas married his fellow classmate, Sherri, a medical doctor, and returned to Broken Arrow, where he bought an existing practice from a retiring dentist. After practicing for about 12 years in the original site, Dr. Thomas built a new, larger, state of the art dental office in 2003. His commitment to the community was evident when Dr. Thomas founded the popular “A Minute For Your Mouth” radio show as a means of elevating the community’s dental awareness. With over 25 years of dental experience, Dr. Thomas has additional continuing education in areas including orthodontics, cosmetic dentistry, and oral medicine.
