Dr. Thompson

Derrick was born in a small town called Bogalusa in Louisiana. At the age of two his family decided to move to California so that he and his older sister could have a good education. Ironically after two years at UC Berkeley, he and his Mom thought it would be of his best interest to return to the south to finish his education. The decision was made to continue his education at Grambling State University, where he majored in Biology. It was then he decided to go into the field of Dentistry. He was recruited by Meharry Medical College in Nashville, TN. It was here he attended their prestigious School of Dentistry, where he obtained his DDS at the age of 26. He continued his growth in leadership and education as an Officer in the US Navy Dental Corp.
