Dr. Wes Thomson was born and raised in the small community of Frontier, Saskatchewan. He completed High School there and enrolled at the University of Saskatchewan in the College of Arts and Sciences. After one year of study, Dr. Thomson was accepted to the College of Dentistry and graduated in 1986. He completed a record number of clinical treatment requirements while in the College, an accomplishment which still stands to this day.
He then was ‘Alberta Bound’ and joined a dental practice as an Associate in Medicine Hat. His future wife, Gayleen, was practicing physiotherapy at the Regional Hospital, but they returned to Saskatchewan in June 1987. This was a very rare relocation at that time. Wes joined with Drs. Michel and Rod Taillon to create Wheatland Dental Centre in Assiniboia. The Practice was purchased by Aspire Dental of Oakville, Ontario in May 2017. Dr. Wes remains practicing full time as an Associate Dentist.
Dr. Thomson prides himself in providing a full spectrum of Dental services to his patients. This includes endodontics, implants, and cosmetic dentistry on occasion. Wes was elected by his peers to the College of Dental Surgeons of Saskatchewan Council in 2015 to which he continues to serve. He was very active with Assiniboia Kinsmen and served on the Board of Directors for the Saskatchewan Hockey Association for multiple terms.
Wes and Gayleen are the very proud parents of four adult children, all of whom reside in Saskatchewan: Paul, Blaine, Jillian and Matthew. The ‘kids’ keep them broke and busy. His interests include sports of all sorts, reading and keeping up with the many activities of their very large extended family.
