Meet The Team

Dr. Derrick L. Thompson


Derrick L. Thompson, DDS, is a cosmetic, restorative, and family dentist who practices in Beverly Grove, Los Angeles. He has more than 25 years of experience practicing dentistry.

Dr. Thompson was born in the small Louisiana town of Bogalusa. When he was two, his family moved to California so that he and his sister could get the best possible education.

Ironically, Dr. Thompson eventually returned to the South to complete his education. He completed his first two years of undergrad at the University of California, Berkeley, but he decided it was best to transfer to Grambling State University in Grambling, Louisiana. He majored in biology at Grambling and decided to pursue dentistry.

After college, Dr. Thompson attended Meharry Medical College School of Dentistry in Nashville, Tennessee. After obtaining his dentistry degree at the age of 26, he joined the United States Navy Dental Corps, where he expanded on his education, developed leadership skills, and learned how to help patients feel comfortable and relaxed even in the most challenging conditions.

Dr. Thompson is proud to provide top-quality dental care to patients of all ages throughout Los Angeles. For the finest in dentistry services, call or use the online booking tool.

Subsequently, she pursued her college studies at Arizona State University, focusing on Exercise & Wellness.

In 2016, Nia embarked on her journey in the dental industry, a field she has been dedicated to ever since. Her passion lies in the transformative nature of dentistry, where she takes pride in turning patient needs and expectations into outstanding results. Witnessing the joy and satisfaction of patients after receiving dental work is what she cherishes most about her profession.

Nia discovered her calling in dentistry when a patient shared their longstanding fear of visiting the dentist. After years of anxiety, the patient expressed how Nia’s comforting approach not only alleviated their fears but also instilled excitement about dental appointments.

Beyond her professional life, Nia is a multifaceted individual. Outside of dentistry, she owns and operates her own fashion and fitness businesses.
