Thomas Tipton, DMD I love being an orthodontist! I learn so much from all the people I treat and come into contact with on a daily basis, and everyone has an interesting story to tell. I believe that everyone deserves to have a beautiful, healthy, functional smile and I am honored that my patients place their trust in me. Education and Experience I feel that because of my education and training I am able to provide my patients with a higher level of orthodontic care. A quality education and a commitment to continuing education provide me with the skills necessary to help my patients achieve a healthy, beautiful smile. Bachelor of Science in Zoology – Brigham Young University Doctorate of Dental Medicine – Washington University, St. Louis Master of Dental Science in Orthodontics – University of Pittsburgh I am president of Arizona Orthodontic Study Group, the longest continuing orthodontic study group in the nation. This participation helps me stay involved with my peers and allows us all to learn from each other’s clinical experiences. It also gives me an opportunity to keep up-to-date on the newest techniques and technologies. My Team I have the most experienced team members who all care so much about our patients. They are as committed as I am to educating you and helping you optimize your time in braces. They enjoy working with patients, and they will make every effort to make your time with us special and enjoyable. Outside the Office I am a native of Springville, Utah, and have lived in Mesa for the past 22 years. I love spending time with my son and three daughters. Since fitness is important to me, I run, bike, hike and scuba dive. I have coached many Little League teams and have been a Boy Scout leader for the past 20 years.

"Please note that Dr Tipton is offering gift cards for reviews. Therefore, you are not getting a true idea of Dr Tipton or the quality of care he provides. Unfortunately, I have trusted these positive reviews and choose him for my orthodontic treatment. Prior to signing the contract, I was told that the fee includes everything, including retainers. However, when there were negative outcomes caused by poor quality of orthodontic work, I was asked to pay for costly follow-up treatments. Despite paying extra on top the initially presented fee, the orthodontic work has been below par - to day the least. He even messed up my teeth when doing a standard orthodontic work such as removing the residual adhesive to restore a smooth and aesthetic surface. Now all my teeth have visible scratches and marks on the enamel. Don’t make the same mistake I did. Ask family and friends for referral before choosing an orthodontist. UPDATE: Dr Tipton responded to my review in an attempt to try to blame his ...
bad orthodontic work being cased by my alleged dental issues. He also downplayed the deep scratches and marks caused while removing the braces. The polish to remove these scratches made it even worse, as the scratches were so deep that he almost thinned the teeth. As mentioned in one of his patient’s review, when you try to change to a different orthodontist due to his poor work, he refuses to refund the pro-rata amount. Dr Tipton and the staff give you the impression that they care, but when they almost max out your insurance coverage, which they accomplish in a short time due to unnecessary work, the care and treatment is reduced to the bare minimum. As the other patient review mentioned, Dr Tipton will not even have time for a 15 minute appointment to address concerns. "

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
