Great Smiles Transform Lives

I cannot say say enough good things about Dr. Thompson and his wonderful team. If you’re looking for a place to go that cares about you as much as you care about yourself, I recommend Thompson dentistry. His sincere caring attitude goes above and beyond any dentist that I’ve experienced here in New Mexico.

The moment I walked into his office for the first time I felt comfortable. unlike other dentist offices, his office was very laid back and elegant. His staff is amazing! they made me feel right at home. very respectful and sweet.

Real dental patient MeganMegan P., Hobbs, NM

I’ve been going here for years and I’ve always had a good experience. The hygienists do a pretty good job during cleanings and Dr. Thompson did a really good job on my front tooth which is mostly composite.
