Meet Dr. Thomas Roberts
On Being a Dentist
I am very proud of my practice on Lower Queen Anne. We are a close family, both my team and our patients. My team members perform the highest quality of dental care in a fun and relaxing environment, where the patients’ needs always come first. The work we do not only supports our patients to keep their teeth healthy and smiles attractive, it has also helped create an overseas institute, in Nepal, that allows children in an otherwise hopeless situation to enjoy a far better life. — Dr. Thomas Roberts
Education and Continuing Education
Dr. Roberts is a visiting faculty member with the prestigious Spear Institute of Advanced Dental Education. Continuing education is critical to staying current with breaking developments in technologies and treatments. The courses he takes ensure Dr. Roberts is able to provide his patients with the best care, and care experience, possible.
Dr. Roberts was awarded his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Washington, where he was ranked sixth in a class of 100 graduates. A lifelong learner, Dr. Roberts pursues continuing education at every opportunity, and far exceeds the state-mandated minimum of class hours each year. He is particularly excited about the options to treat sleep apnea patients with dental devices now — a potentially life-saving care option.

Originally from Kent, WA, apart from a short stint in Indiana for his undergraduate studies, Dr. Roberts has happily lived in the Seattle area for most of his life. When not caring for his patients or reading about a new approach to a complex dental issue, he enjoys mountain biking and teaching high-performance driving. Thanks to his overseas travels, Dr. Roberts loves Bollywood movies!
Dr. Roberts believes that part of being a healthcare professional is using one’s knowledge and abilities to help others. He coordinates annual trips to Nepal in order to offer dental care to low-income individuals.
Dr. Tom, as they call him in Nepal, was the main sponsor in the construction of a Tibetan monastery in Pokhara, Nepal. This facility takes in very low-income boys and provides them with an education, food, and housing, and gives them a brighter future. He’s honored to have been part of this project and glad to have the opportunity to help in this manner.
