Dr. Thames is enthusiastic about being a collaborative and evidence-based endodontist focused on high-quality and compassionate patient care. Practicing general dentistry lead to his passion of performing root canal therapy. Growing up in in Junction City, Oregon on a Christmas tree farm, Wilmington, Dr. Thames loves being outside and working hard. He has always desired to help people and enjoys working with his hands. Dentistry provided the perfect balance of both and opened up many opportunities to travel to underserved countries to provide dental care. Dr. Thames graduated from Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) for Dental school. He moved to Augusta, GA for his residency at the Dental College of Georgia. Outside of caring for patients, Dr. Thames is passionate about family, faith, and being active outdoors. He especially enjoys being part of dental mission trips to serve patients that have no access to dental care.
