Meet Dr. Yvette Thompson

Dr. Yvette Thompson was born and raised in the Bay Area of California. She completed dental school at the Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco in 2008. She quickly realized her passion was working with children and after practicing general dentistry for three years she began further training to specialize in children. She completed her residency training at the Oregon Health and Science University in Portland Oregon in 2013.

Dr. Yvette achieved board certification from the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry in 2015.  She is an adjunct assistant professor in Pediatric Dentistry at UNC-Chapel Hill School of Dentistry. 

It is Dr. Yvette’s mission to treat children with gentleness, compassion and respect while making dentistry fun so that they can grow to be healthy adults without fear of dentistry.  She is bilingual in English and Spanish. 

Dr Yvette lives in Chapel Hill with Dr. Eric Thompson, a pediatric neurosurgeon at Duke Children’s hospital.  When they are not treating pediatric patients, they spend their quality time with their two adorable sons, Joaquin and Javier.
