Meet Dr. Angela Thomas
Born and raised in London, Ontario, Dr. Angela Thomas attended the University of Western Ontario where she completed an honours degree in Microbiology and Immunology. She then moved to Winnipeg for her dental education. She graduated from the faculty of dentistry in 2001 and completed a year-long pediatric residency program at Children’s Hospital in 2002. She has been at Corydon Dental Center since 2003, where she says she was blessed to find such an amazing mentor and colleague in Dr. White.
Dr. Thomas has spent some time teaching dental students in the clinic at the university in the areas of pediatric dentistry and in the periodontal department. She also spent a year on staff at the head and neck cancer clinic as the dental specialist on the head and neck cancer team, where she filled in for a colleague’s year-long sabbatical. She is currently serving on the dental review committee for Manitoba Health and Family Services and is serving as a mentor for students in the dental program at the University of Manitoba.
Dr. Thomas has a unique ability to treat the most difficult of children and put them at ease. She completed an implant mini-residency program in 2008 and enjoys performing implant placement procedures, simple periodontal surgeries, and complicated tooth extractions. The part she loves most about her profession is transforming the most nervous of patients into someone who is no longer afraid of going to the dentist. She also takes pride in providing a fun and relaxing environment for little patients in hopes of establishing a lifelong positive attitude about going to the dentist. Dr. Thomas has also implemented a program to help bring dental care to families in need here in our city and did a mission trip to Cambodia in the spring of 2016.
Dr. Thomas is the proud mom to Sawyer and Lauren and loves watching them at the hockey rink or gymnastics center. She is also an avid reader, loves to cook and travel, and wishes she liked to workout more! She also has a keen eye for interior design, which she has had the opportunity to express in the development and design of our new office.
