Operating as usual

[12/15/17]   When you’re a patient of Dr. Phelan Thomas, he’s not just a person who cleans your teeth… he’s your friend. He wants to be an integral part of your family’s healthcare team, and the professional you turn to who has the confidence and skill to take care of any and all of your dental needs.

Dr. Thomas graduated from the Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry, and since then, has participated in numerous advanced dental courses and seminars, including graduating from the Postgraduate Course in Esthetic Dentistry at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry.

Your First Choice for a Healthy & Beautiful Smile

Dr. Thomas holds the prestigious honor of being the first African American dentist in the United States and abroad to have achieved Accreditation status by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. In addition, he is one of only three dentists in the entire state of Iowa Accredited by the AACD, a credential considered to be the highest level of competence in cosmetic dentistry in which less than four hundred of the more than 8,000 members of the academy have achieved.

Dr. Thomas is also a Diplomate of the American Board of Esthetic Dentistry and a member in good standing of The Academy of General Dentistry. While he thrives on continually learning and bettering his craft, he equally enjoys sharing his expertise with peers in the dental field and has been asked to present at dental seminars across the country. His most recent work centers around the topic of smile design and the use of photography in the dental office.

Being in West Des Moines allows him to offer a Midwestern, small-town, friendly atmosphere while still being able to leverage “big city” technology. In the twenty-three years Dr. Thomas has been in private practice, the area has grown and prospered and he is grateful for the many opportunities he has had to serve his community. He was honored to be chosen as the featured cosmetic dentist for a Des Moines local news station who helped two deserving individuals change not only their lives, but their smiles.

[12/11/17]   Welcome to the Iowa Center for Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, the West Des Moines dental practice of Dr. Phelan Thomas.

Dr. Thomas and his staff enjoy the fact that their patients see them not just as their dental service provider, but as friends. And because friends should be treated like family, you can be assured that when you step in his office, you’ll feel at home and will be well taken care of. Dr. Thomas not only takes the time to thoroughly explain treatment options, but he listens, gets to know you and wants to personally understand the goals you have for your oral health and the appearance of your smile.

Des Moines’ Only Accredited Cosmetic Dentist

Dr. Thomas has many years of experience in the dental profession and has received extensive advanced education. As the only accredited cosmetic dentist in the Des Moines area, he uses the latest technology and materials known for their strength, durability, and natural appearance. He also works with a dental lab that is rated as one of the best in the world.

What does this mean for you? Simply put, you’ll get the world-class dental treatment you’d expect to find in cities like Los Angeles, Chicago or New York, but with service, values and friendliness you’ll only find in Iowa. When you leave his office you will be completely satisfied with restorations that fit well, are extremely durable and a smile that makes you look and feel fantastic.

Whether you are looking for routine dental care and cleanings for your entire family or you want to completely transform your smile, read through our website and you’ll understand why patients in Des Moines and the surrounding area are choosing Dr. Thomas and his staff for all their cosmetic and general dentistry needs.
