Thompson Family Dentistry first opened its doors in 1975 in the small city of Franklin, Virginia. It began with Dr. Harper Thompson's father, Dr. Harvey K. Thompson. Since 1975, Franklin and the surrounding areas have gone through many changes. One most notable change was in September 1999 when Hurricaine Floyd struck the east coast. Our building was soaked with 4+ feet of water. However, just like the resiliency of the people of Franklin/Southampton, Dr. Harvey K. Thompson rebuilt, remodeled, and expanded. This allowed him to update his technology and continue to provide the quality of dental care he always strived to deliver.
After 41 years of caring for his patients, Dr. Harvey K. Thompson decided to "hang up the drill" in June 2016. His son, Dr. Harper A. Thompson, proudly stepped in to continue the legacy.
Thompson Family Dentistry is a family operated dental practice. Dr. Harper Thompson's wife, Annie, is an excellent registred dental hygienist, and both his sisters, Elizabeth and Amy, orchestrate the scheduling, insurance, and billing. Long time assistants, Betty and Debi, have been with the practice for over 19 years and are vital in making sure our patients are as comfortable as possible.
We would love to be your dental care providers!
