Of all the dental hygienist that I have had in my life. I have experienced the most talented, gentle young lady, who did my deep cleaning very painlessly. I like everybody in there. They are so kind and professional. They take you very personable, and that means a lot to me. That shows I’m in good hands. The absolute best so far in my life.

Dr. Thompson and staff are always amazing! I have had a lot of complicated work done over the years due to an old injury and I was feeling very defeated about the way things were going, until Dr. Thompson came on. Not to mention the previous staff was messing up my bill so bad. Trying to double charge me again and again. He and his staff got everything straightened out for me and in a very timely manner. I truly appreciate how he has gone above and beyond to help me and make me feel comfortable with his work. Thank you!

I have had the same dentist for over 25 years. Finding a new dentist, made me nervous. I am so happy I found Columbia Smiles! Michelle was great, my teeth look and feel great. First time meeting Dr. Thompson and I was very pleased about his confidence and compliments about my previous dental work. This made me feel comfortable. This team cares about their patients! Thank you, and so glad I found you!

It was my first cleaning at Columbia Smiles Dental. I couldn’t be more pleased; from the welcoming and helpful front desk staff to the hygienist who gave me a deep careful cleaning, to the dentist who gave me a careful examination and answered all my questions. I left the office feeling really good about the care and patient services.

Dr. Fred Thompson, DMD

Dr. Thompson grew up traveling across the country while his father served the United States Navy. At age 12 his family moved to Utah after his father’s retirement. Dr. Thompson followed in his fathers footsteps and joined the Navy reserves after graduating from West Jordan High School. 

His experiences in the Navy had a great impact on what would one day become his career. He began serving as a Navy Hospital Corpsman, and eventually was activated from the reserves to work at Oakland Navel Hospitals Emergency Room.  During his 7 years in the reserves and his experiences during Desert Storm, his passion for woking with people in the medical field cemented his future life path.

Upon returning home after Desert Storm Dr. Thompson attended the University of Utah for his undergraduate courses.

When considering which dental school to attend, Dr. Thompson was inspired by his time living next to the ocean in his early childhood, so the Pacific Northwest seemed to be the only choice. He began dental school at Oregon Health and Sciences University in 1993.

When he is not rebuilding patients’ smiles, he enjoys spending time with his wife and 4 children, as well as their Greater Swiss Mountain dog. He loves taking his family on camping trips, and he can often be found riding his dirt bike through the mountain trails. When he is not in the great outdoors, he is at home woodworking and making delicious BBQ meals for his family and friends.

Dr. Fred Thompson, DMD

One of the greatest gifts of being a dentist is the community of colleagues, peers, and mentors. He has felt such gratitude for mentors that he has built a relationship with, whom have shared their passion and expertise with him along his career.


While practicing dentistry for the past 25 years, the knowledge and skills gained through continued education and help from his mentors has allowed Dr. Thompson to expend his practice into many areas including cosmetic dentistry, TMD treatment, sleep dentistry, dental implants, and dental surgery.


His love of dentistry and dedication to gaining more expertise, inspired his passion for teaching across the county and internationally. Over the course of 20 years, Dr. Thompson has taught dental courses in dental implant oral surgery and cosmetic dentistry.


Dr. Thompson joined Smiles Dental almost 6 years ago. Practicing in a large group practice had challenges mixed with amazing benefits. Working side by side with 220 amazing colleagues over the past 6 years is the main driving force behind taking on this new role. Being able to share the passion of his coworkers and at the same to work to eliminate the challenges, is what motivated him to take on the position of CEO.


Dr. Thompson is focused on building a culture where all employees can experience the benefits that are associated with being in a large group practice, while at the same time when they walk into their office each morning, they feel the experience of an individual practice.


Dr. Thompson lives in Brush Prairie Washington with his wife Jennifer Thompson. They have 4 children and 6 grandchildren. They both share many passions together including photography, travel, and Scuba diving.
