Recently, Thomas L. Phillips, owner of Thomas L. Phillips DDS in Fort Worth, Texas joined us for an interview. During our interview, Dr. Phillips told us how his father and grandfather influenced his career.
Why did you decide to start your own business?
Thomas L. Phillips: I knew early on growing up in a family of dentists, what I wanted to do. I saw my father and grandfather do dentistry and how well they cared for friends and patients. My family has a compassion for people, friends, and patients that was contagious so it was an easy decision to follow in their footsteps. I wanted to carry on that quality care and attention. I have seen first-hand how patients want to be treated and what it takes to earn their trust.
Can you describe your business to us?
Thomas L. Phillips: We’re a friendly, professional staff dedicated to comfort and dental health for our patients.
What services do you provide?
Thomas L. Phillips: We have a dental hygiene program along with gum disease treatment, cancer screening and cavities detection. We place and restore dental implants, do surgical extractions, use clear ortho retainers, along with many facets of general dentistry. For the dental phobic or apprehensive patient, I use laughing gas or bring in a sedation dentist.
What is the best part about running your own dental practice?
Thomas L. Phillips: As a third generation dentist, I still care for some of the original families, their children and their grandchildren, that started with my grandfather, Leo E. Phillips. Even though I have long-standing patients, I love welcoming new patients to my practice.
Sounds like you love your work. Do you have any challenges?
Thomas L. Phillips: Keeping up with the technology and improvements in dental products is always challenging but I and my staff are constantly learning new techniques and implementing state of the art technology. We are dedicated to helping our patients get that happy, healthy smile!
