During its October 2013 meeting, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry announced that Impression Dental’s Dr. Tye Thompson had been named an Associate Fellow of the Academy. This honor identifies Dr. Thompson as “one of the leading experts in implant care.” Since oral implants fuse with the jawbones to which they are attached, it is of the utmost importance to work with a dental professional who anticipates problems during a procedure before the need for extensive repairs is necessary. 

Prior to receiving his recognition, Dr. Thompson had to undergo at least 300 hours of implant dentistry training at the post-doctoral level. Concurrently, he was required to remain active in providing implant care to his patients at Impressions Dental, and he had to pass the examination the Academy presents to its applicants. The goal of these rigorous requirements is the selection of only the most proficient dental implant specialists to achieve this high honor. 

Implant dentistry is a discipline that serves patients of all ages. Although it is part of Impression Dental’s cosmetic dentistry services, implants are frequently viewed as a necessity for a patient’s physical as well as mental well-being. Whether it is a student athlete who suffered a broken tooth during a rigorous game practice or a young woman whose car accident left her with a noticeable gap of three teeth in front, the implants create a natural-looking solution to a problem that would otherwise mar the patient’s appearance, ability to chew and overall positive body image. 


Dr Tye Thompson practices at Impressions Dental in Chandler, AZ. He is a leader in restorative and cosmetic dentistry and specializes in IV sedation dentistry. In addition to being the Chandler cosmetic dentist patients seek out on a regular basis, Thompson partners with Dr Brigham Baker to provide comprehensive preventative care to adults and children.
