“I love practicing dentistry as it is extremely rewarding being able to build trust with your patients and helping them achieve the smile of their dreams. Knowing how much a smile can impact someone’s confidence, it brings me great joy to help patients become comfortable in the dental chair and build their confidence from the inside out as we help guide and improve their oral health.”
Dr. Gray Thomas was born and raised in Greer, SC and knew he wanted to be a dentist from age 12 due to the impact his pediatric dentist and orthodontist made on him. He graduated from Clemson University with a degree in Health Science and a minor in Business Administration. After Clemson, Dr. Gray received his Doctor of Dental Medicine from the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, SC. During his time in dental school, Dr. Gray had the opportunity to serve on the Dental Student Alumni Council and was involved in organizations such as Delta Sigma Delta, Dental Community Fellowship, The Night to Shine through the Tim Tebow Foundation, and served as the Class of 2021 Social Chairman. Due to his diligence both in the classroom and in the clinical setting, Dr. Gray was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society. Upon graduation from MUSC, Dr. Gray went on to pursue a General Practice Residency at the Prisma Richland Hospital in Columbia, SC. It was during this program that he was able to expand his education and experience in General Dentistry, Oral Surgery, Oral and IV Conscious Sedation, Removable Prosthodontics, Endodontics, as well as treating Medically Complex and Special Needs Patients. Dr. Gray is a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, and American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
Outside of dentistry, Dr. Gray loves being able to travel and spend time with his fiancé, Ellie, a Richmond native, and their chocolate lab, Mocha. He also loves all things related to Clemson sports, as well as spending time outdoors whether it be at the lake or beach, fishing, hunting, or golf.
