Andy Thompson has lived in Cookeville since he was fifteen years old. He has traveled a lot and he thinks that there is no better place in the world to live than Cookeville, Tennessee! There are four beautiful seasons here with lots of outdoor opportunities and we get to share it with some of the best folks in the country.


Andy attended high school in Cookeville and attained an engineering degree at TTU prior to serving two years in the army as a combat engineer. After a short stint as an industrial engineer, he attended dental school at the University of Tennessee and immediately started his dental practice in Cookeville.


When he’s not in the office, you will find he and his wonderful wife Gail at the lake or traveling to see the grandkids. Andy enjoys almost anything outdoors.


Andy was very honored to be voted “Dentist of the Year” for 2017 by the Herald Citizen readers. He thinks that Hometown Family Dentistry absolutely has the best patients around. “Many of them have been with the practice since it was started in 1979. They are truly like family and it is a joy to serve them”.


Finding quality men like John Wesley and Matthew to work with him has been a huge blessing in Andy’s life. They all share the same family values and desire to deliver the best dentistry possible.


In addition to wonderful patients and dentists, there is an awesome ,well trained, caring staff that rounds out the team. Quality dentistry and a well run office would not be possible without these amazing ladies.
