Meet Dr. Nishano Thomas
Nishano Thomas, DMD
I have been a dentist most of my adult life and can’t imagine doing anything else. I get great satisfaction from knowing that I’ve helped a patient’s overall health and well-being and made a positive difference in their life. Each day, I gain something from my patients, whether they’re sharing with me their interests and a warm smile, or expressing gratitude when telling me how dentistry has changed their life, or hearing a simple “thank you". My patients are what make my career so enjoyable and I thank them for giving me the best job I could ever ask for!
It has always been my focus to make each patient feel at home when they come to me for treatment. I work hard to give my patients the attention they deserve.
Education and Continuing Education
For as long as I can remember, I have loved helping people. From improving their appearance, and their overall dental health, or simply relieving their pain, I know that what I’m doing is helping them live a better life. Without the education and training I received in school, I wouldn’t be able to serve my patients in this way. I received my Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the University of Pennsylvania, an Ivy League School, where I graduated at the top of my class, with honors.
Dental techniques, materials, and products are rapidly changing, and it is my goal to offer my patients the best care available. I continue my education by participating in courses and seminars throughout the year, focusing on the most effective treatments that are being developed.
An important aspect of keeping up-to-date with current technology is being involved in the greater dental community. I am an active member of numerous professional organizations, including:
- The American Dental Association
- The Texas Dental Association
- The Greater Houston Dental Society
- The International Congress of Oral Implantologists
- The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
In the Office
You will always hear laughter in my office. My team loves what they do and aren't afraid to let it show! We have a variety of characters and personalities from different backgrounds that work as a cohesive unit to give our patients a truly phenomenal experience. Everyone on my team has a real passion for dentistry and strives to make each appointment excellent for every patient.
As an office, we are also very dedicated to the community. We donate our services to many local charities and fundraisers and donate a portion of our profits to charities such as the American Red Cross, the Susan B. Komen Foundation, and the American Cancer Society.
I am a native of South Africa and live in Houston with my wonderful husband, Mark, and our beautiful daughter, Angelina. When I’m not spending quality time with my family, I enjoy walking in Memorial Park, swimming, and playing tennis.
