Dr. Joseph H. Thompson has been shaping smiles for over 28 years. Dr. Thompson attended Marshall University in the early 1980s as a chemistry major and was accepted to West Virginia University’s School of Dentistry in 1981 following his undergraduate work. He graduated from WVU’s dental school ranked fifth out of 52 students and left with his Doctorate in Dental Surgery. After a year in the pediatric department at WVU’s dental school, he started orthodontic graduate training at WVU in 1986 before graduating and purchasing the practice from Dr. Jennings.
After running a thriving practice in Huntington for over 25 years, Dr. Thompson opened his current office at Teays Valley 3 years ago. Aside from the obvious physical benefits that come with a straight, clean smile, the confidence is something which builds self-esteem for future years; well after the procedure or repairs have been invested in. Dr. Thompson loves what he does as well as loves to re-invest in the community that has given him the career that has shaped the smiles in the Tri-State for over 28 years.
In addition to the work he has done locally, Dr. Thompson has also taken his practice to an international level through the use of social interaction on the Internet by starting a website. There, anyone in the world can ask questions on any range of topics that they may be concerned about or wanting some information on.
