Dr. Dirk Thompson, NW Calgary Dentist

Get to Know Dr. Dirk Thompson, General NW Calgary Dentist in the Heart of Kensington, Hillhurst, & Sunnyside

What does the dentist of the year get?  A little plaque!

If you’ve ever met Dr. Dirk Thompson, you’ve probably heard this or another one (or many!) of his jokes. Although Dr. Thompson’s humour may seem a little on the corny side, it’s his relaxed and friendly style that exemplifies his approach to dentistry. Dr. Dirk Thompson believes that every patient should have a comfortable, positive and enjoyable (yes enjoyable!) experience at their dental appointment and that fear of the dental office should never stop anyone from having the healthy, happy smile they deserve. Dr. Thompson has a passion for dentistry and always strives to treat every patient as if they were family.  It’s Dr. Thompson’s goal to always go the extra mile for his patients while prioritizing patient comfort, efficiency and quality care.


Dr. Dirk Thompson, D.D.S., earned his Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Alberta in 1990. In 1995, Dr. Thompson graduated from the University of Alberta's Faculty of Dentistry as a general dentist.


Dr. Dirk Thompson, D.D.S. has been practicing general dentistry for over 26 years, 21 of which have been in the beautiful community of Kensington (Hillhurst / Sunnyside) in NW Calgary.


When not pursuing his passion for dentistry, our Calgary dentist, Dr. Dirk Thompson, loves biking, exploring Alberta’s beautiful mountains, gardening and keeping active with his wife of 29 years, Elaine, and their three sons, Jacob, Joshua and Jax.
