Dr. Chase Thompson


Chase Thompson, D.D.S. joined the American Dental Arts team as an associate general dentist in 2018. Like Dr. Faridnia, he is an alum of New York University’s College of Dentistry and shares her passion for problem-solving, patient-centered care, and clinical excellence. A native of Arizona, Dr. Thompson was first a student of music, receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Arizona before relocating to New York City to begin a career as a manager for opera singers, stage directors, instrumentalists and conductors. He operated the US division of a London-based agency for a time, before feeling the call to reinvest and reinvent himself as a clinician and oral healthcare provider. Dr. Thompson has felt truly rewarded by the years of patient care which followed and has come to feel especially drawn and committed to the idea of restoration -- whether it is renovating his NYC apartment, rehabbing a vintage flea market find, or rebuilding his patients’ dentition, his core belief is that each has the right to be restored to look and function at its best. Holding certification with Invisalign© and special training with Cerec© and iTero© 3D-digital imaging, Dr. Thompson has embraced the contributions technology and digital innovation have made to the field of dentistry, while daily refining the handmade craftsmanship and artistry that has always a part of the profession. He is so pleased to be a part of this practice and looks forward to seeing you at your next visit!
