Dr. Tristan Thompson

Dr. Tristan P. Thompson grew up in Owensboro, KY and attended Kentucky Wesleyan College where he played NCAA Division II baseball and majored in biochemistry. He enrolled at The University of Kentucky College of Dentistry and graduated with his Doctorate of Dental Medicine (DMD). Dr. Thompson then attended a hospital based residency program in North Carolina where he focused on obtaining credentials for IV sedation, dental implant surgery and prosthodontics, and treating medically compromised patients. He has practiced at Justice Dental since 2013 and became a part owner with Dr. Laura Justice in 2017.

Dr. Thompson has continually been very involved in attending continuing education courses and seminars dealing with dental implant therapy. He graduated from the 2013 MAXI implant course, which entailed over 250 hours of intense training over 10 months. He spent 2014 and 2015 enrolled in the Atlanta Advanced Dental Implant training group. In 2017, he became an associate fellow of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. The process required over 500 hours of implant specific training, passing of written and oral board exams, and presentation, as well as defense, of personally completed implant cases in front of a board of examiners. In 2018 he attended the Pikos Implant Institute to learn about digitally enhancing full mouth placement and restorations of dental implants.

Giving back at both a local and national level is of major importance. He has traveled to Haiti twice for mission work and plans to continue his involvement to helping those in need. He is married to his wife, Meg Phillips-Thompson, and they have one son, Henry.
