Meet the Doctors
Dr. Ron Thompson
Life moves in a circle and no matter what your skills are as a dentist, your efforts to continue to improve each day will make your practice thrive. Practice seems an odd word to describe the day to day life in dentistry, but your efforts should be shared with great staff. I have enjoyed the surprises and challenges that the last 40 years of practice have brought.
Dr. Thompson likes to balance his life with family, friends and sports. A great day for him would be to snowboard in the morning, play golf in the afternoon, and join friends and family for dinner.
