Meet the Doctor

Thomas M. Sims, DDS


Through many various continuing education programs he has attended over the years, Dr. Sims has become well versed in many varieties of restorative dentistry including cosmetic and complicated dental procedures like full mouth rehabilitation and hybrid dentures incorporating the use of implants. He has always kept up with the new technologies that has created an easier and more comfortable means to deliver care to his patients.

Dr. Sims has always had the drive to continue to learn. One area that has always evaded him as well as the majority of other practicing dentists is understanding the world of TMD (temporomandibular joint disorders) and it's associated cranial facial pain. Through his tireless search he feels he has found the answer and is excited about the new protocols he follows. He feels so strongly about this newly acquired body of knowledge that he has elected to open a practice treating these disorders . He joins a group of 67(and growing) centers throughout the world following these same protocols. The approach he uses is innovative yet it is very holistic and practical. Dr. Sims believes that within time all dental and medical students will understand the concepts he currently employs. Because these disorders often overlap into the medical community the opportunity to once again develop a bridge between the medical and dental community has emerged.

As Doctor Sims has worked within the arena of craniofacial pain, it has become very clear that these problems can consume the patient's life. From the time they rise until the time they retire for bed many of their thoughts and emotions revolve around where they hurt and more pointedly how can they move beyond their pain. In many instances a person's poor sleep can influence the daytime problems they are experiencing. Doctor Sims looks forward with much anticipation to meet individuals with these concerns to discuss their needs. He knows he can bring relief to a problem that generally has been present for many years. He describes how satisfying it is to see his patients experience a literal change in their lives as they rid themselves of pain that they have had for many years and enjoy a good nights sleep. It is clear that as his patients progress through the care provided they once again can gain more control of their health putting them in charge of their body and not allowing pain to direct them.

He also devotes his time to the service of his community. He has often said "service is the juice of life!" One area he has participated in for the past 16 years is volunteering his time to provide free dental work for under privileged children. Dr. Sims is truly an asset to the community. Upon meeting Dr. Sims, you will find yourself immediately comforted by his welcoming smile, his compassion for his patients and his commitment to providing them with the highest quality of care.
