Meet Your Corpus Christi, TX Dentist
John T. Thompson, DDS
Dr. Thompson has proudly offered high-quality dental care for Corpus Christi residents since earning his doctorate of dental surgery from the Baylor College of Dentistry in 1985. Prior to that, he received a BA in Biology from the University of Texas at Austin. He is passionate about caring for patients, and takes time to understand their unique dental needs and goals. Never one for the “hard sell,” Dr. Thompson works as a partner with his patients to help them achieve and maintain their healthy smiles. However, our practice isn’t like every other dentists’ office you’ve visited. We love to see our patients smile, and we laugh and joke with them to make them feel like part of the family.
Each year, Dr. Thompson and his team complete numerous hours of continuing education in order to stay abreast of all the advances in the field of dentistry to ensure we offer our patients the highest quality care. He was awarded Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry, which places him in the top 7% percent of all dentists. Additionally, Dr. Thompson is active in a local dental study club, and he maintains memberships in the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Academy of Dental Practice, and the Texas Dental Association. He was also voted by his peers as a Fellow in the International College of dentists. Dr. Thompson has served as President of the Nueces Valley District Dental Society, The Corpus Christi Dental Study Club, the South Texas Academy of General Dentistry and has been proud to serve on the Texas Dental Association's Board of Directors. He was among the nominees for Texas AGD Dentist of the Year 2016, and has once again been honored by Texas Monthly magazine as Texas Super Dentist for 2022.
In his spare time, Dr. Thompson enjoys hunting, fishing, diving, cattle ranching, and playing guitar. He is happily married to his wife, Caroline, and enjoys spending time with family.
