CANYON RIDGE ENDODONTICS
Dr. Thomas Helvey was born and raised in Michigan where he grew up skiing, sailing, playing sports, and developing a love for travel.
He earned his undergraduate degree from Michigan State University and then graduated from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry in 1991 (he cheers for both schools!). Dr. Helvey decided to give back by going into public health dentistry and went on to provide care for underserved populations. First as a general dentist in the Four Corners region as a Lieutenant in the US Public Health Service-Indian Health Service and then the East Coast with the US Public Health Service-National Health Service. Dr. Helvey then returned out West where he worked as an associate in private practice in Spokane, Washington, and Breckenridge, Colorado before opening his own dental practice in the beautiful resort town of Sandpoint, Idaho.
Over the next 10 years, Dr. Helvey grew a successful practice focusing on cosmetic and restorative dentistry, married his wife Magdalena, and had their son Aleksander. Eventually, Dr. Helvey decided to pursue his goal of specializing as an endodontist and was accepted to the highly competitive endodontic program at the VA Long Beach Medical Center. Dr. Helvey sold his practice in Idaho and the family moved to California where he graduated with his Certificate in Endodontics in 2012. The Helvey’s then settled in Denver, Colorado where Dr. Helvey practiced as an endodontist until they moved to Arizona in the spring of 2020.
Dr. Helvey brings vast experience in dentistry in a variety of settings and is excited to have found a home with Canyon Ridge Endodontics. The shared attention to quality, integrity, and the ability to collaborate so closely with colleagues sets the practice apart. The Helvey’s are a skiing family that also loves mountain biking, hiking with their Polish Mountain Sheep Dog named Ani, traveling, and sharing in good food and drinks with family and friends.
