Meet Our Dentist

Thomas Brickey, DMD

Thomas Brickey, DMD

Thomas Brickey, DMD is the founding Salt Lake City dentist of Natural Smiles Dentistry. Tom and his incredible staff have been treating adults and children of all ages for over 20 years. He is a Utah native, and graduate of Highland High School and the University of Utah with a BS in Communication.

Tom graduated from the Oregon Health Sciences University School of Dentistry and spent time working in various public health dental clinics, while beginning his private practice in the Cottonwood Heights area with the help of his uncle and mentor, Roger Russell, DDS. Four years later he moved to his current location in the Canyon Rim area. His Salt Lake City dental office promotes a philosophy of healthy living through optimal oral health, which begins and ends with oral hygiene. Prevention of dental disease has never been easier, and all we need to do is spread the word! Natural Smiles Dentistry always incorporates the latest in CAD-CAM computer assisted dentistry in providing timely, beautiful, and biologically sensitive solutions to your dental needs. He is one of THE FEW dentists in the state of Utah to be trained and qualified to perform the LANAP® laser periodontal treatment for people with gum disease. His high tech dental practice boasts an amazing view of Mt. Olympus too!

Thomas loves his patients like they are his family. He likes to remind kids and patients of all ages that cavity bugs like to poop on your teeth and that soft drinks, energy drinks alike along with our highly processed American diet are the primary villains of all tooth evil. He would much rather talk about the feeling one gets while carving less-than-perfect S turns through perfect Utah powder, or the thrill of climbing any one of Utah’s many crags, than the horrors of root canal due to poor oral hygiene.

Dr. Brickey loves to read, watch his beautiful adult children grow, spending time outdoors with family and friends, and traveling the globe. He is dedicated to improving the lives of his patients and to the service of others through Dentistry. A proud supporter of the LGBTQ Community, creating a Dental Space for all people.
