Dental Expertise

Your quest for an exceptional cosmetic result depends upon your dentist’s expertise. Dr. Thomas Duffy, our highly respected leader at Peninsula Family Dentistry, boasts a wealth of experience and is recognized for his proficiency in cosmetic dentistry. Our practice’s commitment to excellence sets a solid foundation for achieving your desired aesthetic outcome, from planning to the final touches.

Dr. Duffy earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the esteemed University of Washington School of Dentistry in 2014. As part of the third class of UW’s RIDE Program, he honed his early clinical skills and developed a broader dental skill set, emphasizing the importance of serving in rural or underserved areas and collaborating with various healthcare specialties. (Rural practice often requires dentists to have a broader skill set due to fewer dental sub-specialists in many less populated regions.)  

Over the first five years of his career, Dr. Duffy further refined his expertise through mentorship in a private practice in Shelton. Since 2019, he has been the proud owner of Peninsula Family Dentistry in Gig Harbor. Dr. Duffy is dedicated to providing compassionate and comprehensive care. His philosophy revolves around viewing each patient as a whole, emphasizing that dentistry is not just a standalone specialty but an integral part of the broader field of medicine and healthcare.
