Dr. Siny Thomas was born in India and attended school in Africa. As a youth, he enjoyed working with his hands. He became a handyman at home and school and in his neighborhood. Dr. Thomas has vivid memories of his childhood handiwork, including the time when he got into trouble opening his dad’s analog watch. As his curiosity grew, he took on more projects. And in time he developed precision and dexterity with his hands.
Dr. Thomas’s decision to use his talent in dentistry was influenced by two older cousins who were in dental school, along with a local dentist who guided him and welcomed him to spend time at his practice. Dr. Thomas attended the University of Mysore in India, where he obtained a bachelor of dental science degree. And in India, he gained extensive experience in clinical and hospital dentistry.
In 1999, Dr. Thomas moved to the U.S. and made Sugar Land his home. Soon, he was accepted to the DMD program at Tufts Dental School and relocated to Boston. After earning his degree in 2003, he moved his family back to Sugar Land and began practicing dentistry.
To develop his skills, he attended and graduated from the Kois Center, a post-graduate institute dedicated to teaching advanced levels of dentistry to highly motivated dentists. In 2021, after passing the rigorous mentorship exam, he was granted Mentor status with the center.
“Our staff loves the workweek, and we enjoy seeing patients. We are passionate about what we do, or none of us would be here. Our patients are our friends, neighbors, schoolteachers, and hospital, police, and local business staff.” – Siny Thomas, DMD
What Dr. Thomas Enjoys Most About Dentistry
Dr. Thomas enjoys seeing a smile on a patient’s face after eliminating their tooth pain or completing their cosmetic case. He enjoys cosmetic and implant dentistry, endodontics, and full-mouth reconstruction. He explains why:
- Cosmetic – “Facially generated treatment results a beautiful smile. The color, shape, and arrangement of your teeth contribute to a pleasant smile. If you smile with your lips together or with your hand over your mouth, we can help you identify the barriers and provide treatment that helps you smile with confidence.”
- Implant – “When I replace a patient’s missing teeth with dental implants, it’s rewarding to know the experience was painless and that they are happy to be able to chew again.”
- Endodontics – “A patient might arrive at our office in severe pain. But after root canal treatment, the pain is gone, and I can see how appreciative they are.”
His Treatment Philosophy
“How you feel about your smile has a large influence on your sense of well-being. Since I became a dentist, my philosophy is to treat everyone as if their teeth are mine and I’m paying for their dental care.”
Dr. Thomas’s goal is to deliver the best dental care so that it lasts a lifetime. He promotes bite and jaw health by preserving teeth whenever possible. When your teeth, muscles, and jaws work together correctly, your teeth don’t wear out, and your muscles and jaw joints are comfortable.
