Dr. Thames Jr' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Thames Jr "Originally from Hattiesburg, MS, I attended Peal River Junior College, and then proceeded to the University of Southern Mississippi, where I graduated in 1981. I am an Eagle fan and try to make it to as many of their football games as I can! Southern Miss, To The Top!! I attended the University of Mississippi Medical Center School of Dentistry and obtained my dental license in 1985. At that point, I started a practice in Nettleton, MS. In 2005, I decided to expand to Olive Branch, MS, then to Collierville, TN in 2012. I am no longer practicing in Olive Branch but encourage our Olive Branch patients to visit our Collierville location. Practicing dentistry is my passion, and with the vast changes in the field, I try to stay on the cutting edge with all of the latest in dental equipment, which is reflected in the practices. I attend numerous continuing education classes each year, and go above and beyond the requirements, so that I may be able to provide my patients with the very best, up-to- date dental care. I am a member of the Mississippi Dental Association, Tennessee Dental Association, American Dental Association, and am an Invisalign Premiere Preferred Provider. I am pleased to offer family and cosmetic dentistry services for the entire family."
