Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Tompkins "Dr. Tompkins grew up in the orthodontic profession and saw the love that his father had for his practice and patients. Dr. Tompkins knew from an early age that orthodontics was what he wanted to do. His dad was an extremely skilled orthodontist and Dr. Tompkins is fortunate to have inherited some of his traits. When asked what is so special about orthodontics, Dr. Tompkins is quick to tell you that he can truly say that he enjoys going to work every day because of his patients. Dr. Tompkins embarked on his career in orthodontics in the fall of 1988. Instead of beginning from scratch with no patients, he joined his fathers orthodontic practice that was established in the 1960s. His fathers legacy for exemplary orthodontic treatment and his warm chairside manner will always be remembered, and it is a great tribute to him that we continue to see many of his former patients children in our practice today. Dr. Tompkins has been in practice for over 20 years, and he is always excited to see his patients! Without them, we would not be here. Dr. Tompkins and his staff always have smiles on their faces because they love what they do and are here for the patient. As a dental professional, Dr. Tompkins is always looking for ways to improve his skills. Although his formal orthodontic education is complete, he is always searching for new methods that will provide his patients with a more comfortable and efficient orthodontic treatment. As a part of his continuing education, he is an active member of the following professional organizations: Greater Columbia Dental Association Past President South Carolina Dental Association American Dental Association South Carolina Association of Orthodontists Past President Southern Association of Orthodontists American Association of Orthodontists American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine"
