Thomas Backus DDS, In Vancouver WA
My name is Dr. Thomas Backus.
I take pride in being a dedicated, determined and humble person. I am very patient, and my family and friends say that I have a great sense of humor. I am a planner by nature and like to achieve the goals that I’ve set for myself. So far, so good…
I am native to the Northwest and grew up in Vancouver/Portland area. I obtained my Bachelor Degree from both Clark College and WSU-Vancouver, earning A Doctorate Of Dental Surgery from The University of Washington School of Dentistry in Seattle. I am also the recipient of both The Tutoring Award and Dental Education Mentoring.
Dental school taught me that knowledge alone is not enough to complete the procedures that are performed on each patient. It’s being able to offer each patient exceptional care, delivered with precision in a kind way, ensuring that they are happy.
I chose a career in dentistry for the intellectual challenge, opportunities for service, and the chance to make a concrete difference in each patient’s life. My hope is to use what I have learned in a way that will positively impact their health and their self-esteem for years to come.
I enjoy martial art, cooking and exploring many of the beautiful hiking trails the Northwest has to offer.
