Meet Dr. James Thomas

Dr. Thomas

“I find gratification in providing my patients with friendly, compassionate, quality care. My goal is to spend time with every patient, diagnose conservatively, and deliver indicated endodontic therapy in a gentle, comfortable manner to save natural teeth and alleviate pain.”

Dr. Thomas is a second generation dentist raised right here in Metro Detroit. He attended Michigan State University for both Bachelor and Master of Science degrees in biology, graduating Magna Cum Laude. During his time spent at MSU, he had the opportunity to work in the botany greenhouses, conduct veterinary and invertebrate research, and enjoyed his position as a teaching assistant for numerous science courses prior to entering dental school.

Upon completion of a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree with distinction from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry, Dr. Thomas joined his father in private dental practice. Here, he grew clinically, enjoyed many terrific patient relationships, earned a Fellowship Award in the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), and developed his passion for endodontics. He also had the privilege of serving both Michigan Dental Association (MDA) and AGD as a delegate, board member, speaker host, and member of continuing education committees.

With increased focus on endodontics, Dr. Thomas returned to the University of Detroit Mercy for an endodontic residency in 2017, earning a Master of Science degree and Certificate in endodontics. Dr. Thomas is an Alpha Sigma Nu National Honor Society inductee and Ellison Award Recipient. He contributed to scientific literature in the Journal of Endodontics in 2020, and is American Board of Endodontics board eligible. Dr. Thomas is an active member of the American Association of Endodontists, Michigan Association of Endodontists, American Dental Association, and MDA.

Dr. Thomas spends his free time with his wife, two children, and dog. They enjoy hiking, snowboarding, cooking, traveling, and attending their children’s varied activities.
