Meet Dr. Sean M. Thoms: Dental Anesthesiologist and Sedation Dentist

 Sean M. Thoms, DMD, MS

Dr. Sean Thoms received his Bachelor’s degree from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville in 2008, his Master’s degree (M.S.) from Barry University in 2009 and his Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) from Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine in 2013. After graduation from dental school, he continued his education by attending a three-year Dental Anesthesiology residency at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) which certifies him to provide Deep Sedation and General Anesthesia for dental procedures by the Missouri Dental Board.

Dr. Thoms has a primary focus in treating patients with special healthcare needs such as Autism, Alzheimer’s, Cerebral Palsy, and Down Syndrome. He states, “Sedation and sleep dentistry allow me to serve the special needs population who are unable to find care in the traditional dental office setting.  My focus is to provide a Dental Home for these individuals that will enable them to achieve and maintain optimal oral health.”

In his spare time, Dr. Thoms likes to run, golf, and waterski.  He also enjoys spending time with his wife, Michelle, his two daughters, Lexi and Quinn, and walking his German Shepherd, Riley.
