Dr. Thomas is from Lexington, SC, where he graduated from Lexington High School in 2004. He then took his talents to play baseball at the University of South Carolina, where he graduated with a degree in Biology and a minor in Spanish. After two shoulder surgeries, the sports path was diverted, and he attended the College of Dental Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina. He graduated in 2013, but it is here where he developed his passion to serve the community. He volunteered at multiple free clinics in the surrounding Charleston area to provide care to the underserved. He also participated in mission trips to Ecuador in South America and Burundi in Africa during his time at MUSC. Upon graduation from dental school, Dr. Thomas carried on his desire to serve not only the community but his country. He was commissioned in the United States Navy as an officer in 2013 and continued his military service until separation in 2018.
During dental school, the Thomases fell in love with the Charleston area and knew they would be back. Once the Navy obligation was fulfilled, the opportunity to become owner of Carolina Avenue Dental Care was on the table, and this was exactly where Dr. Thomas wanted to be. This is a hard-working, loyal, and honest community and one that Dr. Thomas clearly relates to. He has always said, “I have been blessed with a certain skill set, and it is my duty to use that to help as many people as possible.”
All of his accomplishments and attributes are minimal in comparison to his relationship with his family, which will always come first and foremost. He has had the support of his amazing wife of 8 years, Danielle, all around the world and now back here in SC. They have a four year old daughter, Campbell, and a three year old son, Levi, who both continue to be their greatest gift. The “first born son,” Jackson, is their eleven year old boxer and Dr. Thomas’s wing man. They all love travelling and simply spending time together outside whether it be hiking, at the beach, or by the pool. Sports will always be a love of this very athletic family, so you can always find them rooting for their favorite teams, depending on the time of year.
Carolina Avenue Dental Care is all about “making memories through your smiles.” This will be our motto, and Dr. Thomas wants everyone in the community to know that they are already a part of the “family.”
Dr. Thomas is pleased to work with a staff of friendly and highly experienced individuals.
