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 is maintaining health or improving smile aesthetics, provides the meaning and fulfillment that makes my professional life incredibly satisfying. It is with sincere joy that I arrive at the office every morning to greet my team and patients, and for that, I am profoundly grateful.”

My Mission

“It is my goal as a dentist to maintain health and restore bright, confident smiles. Regardless of the procedure, it is vitally important for me to understand my patients in order to provide compassionate and empathetic 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, a smile is at the center of these connections; a catalyst for joy and laughter with friends and loved ones. The dental profession offers me the unique opportunity to help make these moments possible for my patients. I consider it a privilege to provide the education, resources, and treatment for ensuring my patients enjoy healthy, beautiful smiles.”

My Mission

“I cannot overemphasize the importance of interpersonal connections in my practice. I am dedicated to making sure that each patient, regardless of age, feels they have been treated with the same quality and attention to detail as a member of my own family. To this end, my goal is to meet the individual needs of every patient and deliver treatment that exceeds their expectations. Every member of our dental team is dedicated to upholding this standard of care for our community.”
