Dr. Thomas Salinas, DDS
Dr. Thomas Salinas was born in Texas and studied biology at Austin College in Sherman, TX. He started working in his dentist's office in 1994. A love of travel and service led him to the U.S. Peace Corps in Cameroon, West Africa, for several years, but he knew he would train to be a dentist before joining the Peace Corps.
He brought this service-minded mentality to his time at the University of Texas Dental School, where he graduated with academic, clinical, and research honors. Next, Dr. Salinas increased his skills through the University of Florida's Advanced General Dentistry program in St. Petersburg. Continuing education is a large part of his professional life, and he has traveled extensively, seeking further knowledge.
One thing he enjoys about being a dentist is the challenge of diagnosis and treatment planning. He is exceptionally skilled in creating a set of solutions tailored to each patient, and he is delighted to see a case come together as planned.
In his limited free time, Dr. Salinas enjoys traveling and fishing with his wife, Boy Scouting and camping with his son, and learning the latest social media trends with his daughter.
