Meet Dr. Gilbert Dr. Thomas Gilbert feels very lucky to be able to practice in the city where he grew up as a child. A strong sense of community was instilled in him as he grew up in Royal Oak, where he played every sport under the sun with his neighborhood friends, and enjoyed movies at the old Royal Oak drive-in. Dr. Gilbert’s passion for dentistry and excellence in treatment started early on. Both of his parents were teachers and administrators at Detroit Country Day School, where he excelled in academics, soccer and lacrosse. He majored in biology and psychology at Albion College, where he also continued to play varsity soccer and lacrosse. He received his Doctorate of Dentistry from the University of Detroit Dental School in 1985. His love of learning continues both in his professional and personal life. An avid reader who loves mysteries and suspense, Dr. Gilbert averages two to three books at a time for pleasure, as well as dental journals and current research papers to provide the most innovative and comfortable treatment for his patients. Dr. Gilbert is a firm believer in continuing education. One such class that he has taken is Invisible Braces by Invisalign, where his patients have ranged from early teens to 80 year olds. He has also learned how to place and restore implants, which has opened up a whole new option of treatment for his patients. Dr. Gilbert was also one of the first to complete the specialized course in Lumineers. Family is one of Dr. Gilbert’s top priorities. He and his staff at Royal Oak Dental treat their patients as if they were family. Dr. Gilbert met his wife in 10th grade and married her 10 years later. Together they have four children, a dog and two cats. In his spare time he enjoys swimming, fitness at the gym, target practice, movies, musical theater, and the Red Wings (ask to see his autograph collection!). His motto in life is, "Mens sana in corpis sana" which translates to "A sound mind in a sound body." Dr. Gilbert’s focus is to provide the most professional level of treatment and comfort to his patients. As Dr. Gilbert will tell you himself, he has had a lot of treatment done on his own teeth and he knows what his patients go through. People have asked, “But you are a dentist! How can you have so much done to you?" He tells them, "When I was growing up, I wanted to be a cowboy."

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.
