I remember the exact moment that set me on the path to becoming a dentist. I’m the youngest of five boys, and I’ve always been extremely close with my brothers. When I was graduating high school, my brother James was finishing dental school. During this time, we took a fishing trip to the Teton River. While on the river, James asked me if I had given serious thought to what I wanted to do professionally. At that time, I wasn’t really sure, but was leaning towards mechanical engineering. James suggested to me that I would love dentistry and explained why he thought the career would suit me. It was one of the best decisions I’ve made, and I owe my big brother a huge thanks for giving me that initial nudge. There’s a lot to love about the field of dentistry, but one of the most rewarding aspects is being able to relieve the pain of others. When somebody enters the office with pain so severe that it’s affecting their daily life, it means a lot to be able to lend a hand. I also relish being able to improve patients’ smiles — not just cosmetically, but functionally, too. I never forget the instances when I help patients gain an improved quality of life. INTRODUCING DR. THOMASON

Outside of the office, I spend most of my time with my family. Meredith, my wife, is absolutely awesome, and I am a better individual because she’s in my life. Our relationship has been a joy from the moment I met her. She is also smokin’ hot and beautiful in every way! Even though we both grew up in Rexburg, we didn’t meet until after I graduated from dental school and moved to Boise. We were set up on a blind date and immediately hit it off. We’ve been married for eight years, and we have three beautiful children: Avy, Jett, and Max. Our youngest, Max, was born just a few weeks ago, so it’s been a thrilling time for our family. Avy and Jett are excited to have a baby brother! When I’m not trying my best to keep up with the kids, I love spending a little time outdoors. My favorite ways to unwind are motorbiking, fly-fishing, and camping. I also have a hobby that I’m not afraid to admit is a little nerdy: flying remote control planes. They can be really sophisticated machines, and flying them has always been a ton of fun for me. My greatest passions, though, are my family and career. I cannot wait to see where life’s journey takes us.


I feel so fortunate to practice at Eagle Dental Care. We have an amazing team here, and creating a fun environment for both staff and patients comes naturally when you work with people as awesome as those we have here. Don’t get me wrong: We take our work seriously, but we’re not afraid to have some laughs. We want every person who walks through our door to feel like an old friend, and we strive to make real connections with our patients.
