About Your Dentist

Brandi Thompson, DDS

Why Dentistry?

My daughter recently asked me why I became a dentist. I tried to explain to her that most of us have a genuine hope of finding a career that provides meaning and fulfillment in our own lives and the lives of others. I am fortunate that my chosen field of dentistry offers me these elusive qualities we all hope to find. Working in close concert with my incredible patients to identify a goal, whether it be maintaining health or improving smile aesthetics, provides that meaning and fulfillment that makes my professional life incredibly satisfying. It is with sincere joy that I arrive to work every morning to greet my team and patients, and for that I have much gratitude.

My Mission


It is my goal as a dentist to maintain health and restore smiles and confidence. Regardless of the procedure, it is inherently important for me to understand my patients in order to provide compassionate and connected care during their visit to Tulsa Hills Dental.

Melissa French, DDS

Why Dentistry?

An integral part of being human is experiencing meaningful connections with each other. Often, our smiles are at the center of these connections, a catalyst for joy and laughter with friends and loved ones. The field of dentistry allows me to support these moments of connection for my patients, as I am privileged to provide the education, resources and care to promote health and confidence for their smiles.


My Mission

I cannot emphasize enough the importance of interpersonal connection in my practice. It is my goal that each of my patients, from the youngest to most seasoned, feels that they have been treated with the same level of quality and attention to detail as my own dear family. Further, my goal is to exceed rather than merely meet my patients’ expectations. I believe this should be the standard for health and dental care in our community.
