Deidra - Registered Dental Hygienist
Hello, my name is Deidra! I have worked for Thomas Family Dentistry since 2005 and have worked in the dental field since 2003. I really enjoy working at our practice because we have a great team of professionals who all want to give our patients a great experience. It’s rewarding to help patients feel comfortable and achieve their dental goals. In my spare time, I love to spend time with my husband and family. We are very active in our church and I also enjoy reading, gardening, working out, and keeping up with our two wonderful daughters!
Karla - Registered Dental Hygienist
Hi there and welcome! My name is Karla and I have been with Thomas Family Dentistry since 2001. Every member of our practice is dedicated to helping you achieve a healthy beautiful smile. It is a wonderful blessing working with the patients and the staff here. After hours, I enjoy spending time with my husband, friends, and family. I also love to cook, quilt, my Shelties, Darcy and Ellie, travel and think up ways my husband can improve our home! I look forward to meeting you and your family!
Connie - Registered Dental Hygienist
Hello, I'm Connie. I graduated from TCC with my Dental Hygiene degree and have been practicing for 20 years in the Tulsa/Broken Arrow area. I enjoy working for Thomas Family Dentistry and started here in 2015. It is a real pleasure working with such a great team. I like Dr. Thomas' conservative dentistry approach and would recommend him to any friend or family member. When I am not working, I love nature, which is my hobby! If it is a nice outdoor kind of day, I'm there!
Kathy - Front Desk
Welcome! I'm Kathy and I have been with Thomas Family Dentistry since 1998. I’m one of the first friendly smiles you’ll see when you come into our office. I love connecting with our patients on a personal level and I like to think of many of them as friends. I enjoy spending my free time with my two daughters, two sons-in-law, and five grandchildren. I am also an Oklahoma State alumnus and love to follow OSU sports, but my Boston terrier, Carly Sue, really is the light of my life!
Veronica - Office Manager
Hello, I am Veronica and I am the office manager for Thomas Family Dentistry. I began working for Dr. Thomas in August of 1995. I enjoy the pleasant work atmosphere in our office. The entire staff works so well as a team and treats each other with courtesy and respect. One of my favorite aspects of working in the dental office is the patients. It is truly a pleasure to get to know so many of them. My husband, Rick, and I are originally from Arkansas and moved to the Tulsa area in 1984. Our three children, Britni, Erin, and Grant, have all grown up here. We love this area and the many wonderful churches in Tulsa. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, walking, and spending time with my family.
Debby - Registered Dental Assistant
Hello, I'm Debby. I am a Broken Arrow native and it's hard to believe that I have been working in the field of dentistry for over 20 years. Time truly flies by! My dental education was completed at Tulsa Tech, where I earned certificates as a dental lab technician as well as a certified dental assistant. From appliance fabrication in the lab to interacting chairside with each of our great patients, I really enjoy all of the various aspects of our profession! Outside of the office I love being a wife of 18 years, a mother to our son and daughter, and a grandmother to our four wonderful grandchildren -three grandaughters and one grandson. Besides spending time with my family, I enjoy the outdoors, hiking, vacations in Mexico and being involved with our church!
Jennifer - Registered Dental Assistant
Hi, I'm Jennifer. I am one of the dental assistants and although I have been working for Thomas Family Dentistry since 2015, I have been involved in the dental field since 2005! Besides getting to work with so many different kinds of dental gagets and materials, I really like having a job that allows me the opportunity to meet so many interesting and different people. Outside of the office, I have a passon for my dog breeding business - Great danes and English bulldogs! I also enjoy traveling with my family to any destination that includes Fun and Sun!
Lolly - Registered Dental Assistant
Hi, I'm Lolly. I too am from Broken Arrow, where I've grown up and spent my entire life. I graduated from Broken Arrow High School and completed my dental assisting education at Tulsa Tech, where I earned my dental assisting certificate. Spanish is my first language and it should be of no surprise that I love homemade mexican food! I really enjoy the field of dentistry, but when I am not at work, I also like camping and hanging out with my friends and family.
