Jonathan Thomas, DDS
Dr. Thomas and his wife, Krista, have two beautiful little girls, Oaklee, and Brookes, and a handsome little man, Tave. In his free time, Dr. Thomas can be found exploring Maui with his camera, enjoying family beach days, reading princess stories to his little girls, wrestling his boy, and wooing his wife with his impressive grilling skills.
Dr. Thomas has been practicing in Kihei for the past two and a half years. He joined us from the Big Island where he practiced as an associate for four years. In his search to find a practice to call his own, Dr. Thomas was fortunate to connect with Dr. Shimokawa. After spending time with the Shimokawas, Dr. Thomas knew it was a great fit and felt honored that Dr. Shimokawa felt the same.
Dr. Thomas earned his dental degree from the University of Maryland after earning his bachelor’s degree in Visual Art from Brigham Young University. His training in the arts complements his artistic and discerning eye to create beautiful smiles. Dr. Thomas furthered his training by completing a general practice residency at the University Medical Center in Fresno, California. Dr. Thomas attends numerous postgraduate education courses each year. Dr. Thomas believes in the value of being current with the latest research, technology and procedures in order to provide the highest quality care possible.
Dr. Thomas has received advanced training in placing implants. He offers the latest in digital dental radiographs or 3D Imaging (CBCT) in his office. This allows him to perform virtual surgery before placing the actual implant. The 3D imaging technology ensures placement accuracy, and bone readiness in his patients. Hands down, this is the gold standard for implant placement among all dental professionals.
Dr. Thomas has also had advanced laser training, allowing him to practice minimally invasive dentistry and save as much tooth structure as possible. Laser dentistry is gaining popularity among all patients, particularly with children, since in many instances, no anesthetic is needed. Dr. Thomas has recently attended courses on dental treatment via ozone therapy. He is very impressed with the ozone therapy, and has recently started utilizing it in his practice.
Dr. Thomas is passionate about creating beautiful smiles, and values his relationships with his patients. He has a unique ability to make his patients feel relaxed and comfortable in the dental chair. For the Thomas Ohana, family time is prized time. From beach days to family strolls, family moments are the best part of life.
