When he’s not crowing, err, “cheering,” on the office team as they arrive and depart, you can find him inspecting the parking lot for cleanliness, supervising the operatories through the rear entrance, or eating snacks with Dr. T, Mr. Stewart, and Bonnie. He is also quite the early riser, retiring to his tree at 6 PM in preparation for the next work day. Recently taking on the role of New Patient Recruitment, he’s begun stopping bikers and passersby, making sure they crow about a good dentist when they see one.

Speaking of a good dentist, one patient had this to say: “I simply love my dentist. I have been a patient for almost 30 years. Dr. Tomlinson was always very knowledgeable about my dental needs. I also have my two son’s dental needs taken care of here since they were 3 years old. We are like family to this office….Best dentist office one could ever hope for.”
