You can trust your dental needs are in great hands with the Dr. Davies team By Jillian Chandler
“We always loved the mountains and even had a home near Yosemite,” says Dr. Tom Davies. “We found that Sandpoint was the most beautiful place we have ever visited and offered an endless opportunity for outdoor activities.”
After 35 years practicing dentistry in California, Dr. Tom Davies and his wife Lisa decided to relocate north in 2011. The following year, Dr. Davies opened Tom Davies Family Dentistry here in Sandpoint, where he has been devoted to serving the community and beyond when it comes to their dental needs since 2012.
Supporting his wife is very important to him, as much as his commitment to practice dentistry for many more years! As in all the couple’s adventures, they take them head on—together. Twenty-five years into his dental career, Lisa decided to start her own business in real estate, and Dr. Davies has never wavered in his support of her passion. “Real estate fits her outgoing and caring personality,” he affirms.
Dr. Tom Davies and his amazing team of Donna, Barbie and Jessie practice in Downtown Sandpoint. Their dental office can be found in the Sandpoint Urgent Care Building on the corner of First Avenue and Superior Street. With decades of experience, Dr. Davies finds joy and a sense of accomplishment from practicing the art and science of dentistry.
Providing general and cosmetic dentistry at Tom Davies Family Dentistry, services include everything from dental cleanings, extractions, whitening, fillings and sealants to dentures and partials, mini denture implants, bridges, root canals, veneers, suction cup relines, laser-assisted periodontal therapy, nightguards and mouthguards.
Dr. Davies has wanted to be a dentist since elementary school. When asked what inspired him to get into the dental field, Dr. Davies recalls: “When I was 8 years old, I thought my dentist seemed to enjoy what he was doing. I asked my dad if being a dentist was a good job, and he encouraged me to do that.” He attended UCLA undergrad and USC Dental (Go Trojans!), becoming a dentist at 24 years old. Many people ask, “Dr. Davies, when are you going to retire?” His usual answer is, “Nobody ever asked Beethoven when he was going to retire.”
At Tom Davies Family Dentistry, the team enjoys getting to know the patients—and their families. The team’s goal is to deliver the highest quality dentistry in the most comfortable and caring environment. “Together, our team promise is to make your next visit the best experience possible,” Dr. Davies affirms.
As one recent patient can attest: "I would recommend Dr. Davies and his staff to anyone! I felt very welcomed and at home during my first visit for a cleaning and exam. Dr. Davies is so knowledgeable, takes the time to explain and is the gentlest dentist I have ever had. His staff is amazing and so kind with 5 Star Service! Hands down, Dr. Davies is the best dentist in Sandpoint!"
At the end of the day, it is the relationships with their patients who become lifelong friends that Tom Davies and his team find truly rewarding.
When not in the office, you can find the Dr. Davies team dedicating their time in their local churches, Canine Companions (support dogs) and Community Assistance League. Dr. Davies and his staff look forward to helping the community with their dental needs. They invite you to stop by the office and meet the Family Dentistry team any time. You can rest assured that your dental needs are in good hands thanks to their compassionate and experienced team of professionals.
