Dr. Shelby is such a sweet and considered man who understands that sometimes you don’t have the money to do a lot of work and will work with you. Love his assistant Darlene, she is so nice and gentle with you and is always asking about your family. You can call any time a d they will try to accommodate with getting you in ASAP.


I am someone that experiences a high level of dental anxiety and this has caused me to refuse to go to the dentist for at least 9 years. Today was my first visit with Dr. Ben and this was the best dental experience that I have ever had. He and his staff were very patient, caring and most of all, gentle. I left feeling better about my smile and scheduling my next appointment. Thank you Dr. Ben!


I have been going to Dr. Thompson for over 20 years and he and all his staff are awesome. So glad Dr. Ben will be taking over the family business and continue to provide quality care to all their patients. Whenever I have a dental emergency Anita will always get me in as quick as possible to be treated. Love them!!


My family has been going here for ages, but I’ve gone for about 15 years and have always had quality work. I always hear horror stories from other people and their dentists, and I’ve had just about every operation with no complications at all. The entire office is a great team who are all very helpful. Highly recommend!


My children and I all go to Dr. Thompson and would highly recommend him. He and his staff are very knowledgeable, kind and very personable. Both of my children felt very comfortable with their firsts visits to the dentist and always look forward to going back.


I’ve been with Dr. Shelby for years. It’s great to have Dr. Ben in the office now to help keep my teeth healthy! The office staff is awesome! Never want to have to go anywhere else!


Excellent dentist! We’ve been with the office for 10-15 years and have had nothing but positive experiences. They treat you like family. Highly recommended.


Wonderful dentist! Great office staff! Highly recommend him and his dental practice.


Ben is very friendly and professional. He helps patients feel comfortable and takes the time to listen and answer questions. He is very knowledgeable and practices a conservative approach to dentistry without pushing for unnecessary care. I’ll be returning twice a year!


Dr Thompson is wonderful. He and Darlene made me and my 11 year old daughter feel comfortable and at ease. They explained in detail each procedure that was taking place. We now have a new family dentist!


The staff and doctors here are amazing. They understand their patients have real concerns and are willing to help. The doctors are always checking to see if your ok while working with their patients. I highly recommend this office to everyone who needs any dental work.


Being a nervous patient, I need a dentist that understands me and knows how to put me at ease. Dr. Thompson’s office is staffed with kind and compassionate employees, especially Darlene, who at times actually held my hand and helped me through the procedure. Highly competent and professional, I strongly recommend this dental office to everyone needing a great dentist.


I’ve been a patient at Dr. Thompson’s for over 10 years. They are a wonderful office! They are professional and so very pleasant! The hygienists are thorough, but not too rough. My daughters (aged 7 & 8) also go to the office and they are great with them; my oldest even had to have a cavity filled and did will.

I’d highly recommend this office to anyone looking for a dentist!


I have been a patient at this office for almost 40 years. The staff is always friendly and very knowledgeable. The transition from Dr Shelby Thompson to Dr Ben Thompson has been smooth. I am excited about the continued care my husband, two sons and myself will receive in the future. I highly recommend this office.

Root Canals

When you’re in serious dental pain, you may have an infection in a tooth’s root canal, which is the space that holds the nerves and tissue inside each tooth. With an efficient root canal treatment, Dr. Thompson can clean the infection out, fill in the root canal area, and restore the strength and function of the tooth, relieving your pain quickly and restoring your oral health!
