Dr. Gregory Pearce Thurston

Hello! I have found that people have the best experience in my practice when we get to know their situation by listening. When we take the time to understand others it builds the depth and richness of our community. I have been fortunate to live in San Luis Obispo for almost 3 decades and have been practicing dentistry since 2012.

Journey: I went to SLO high and then to UC Davis for engineering school leading to a career launching satellites into orbit with Boeing Space Systems. I decided to combine my passion for solving engineering problems with the art of creating beautiful smiles and entered UCLA in 2008 to study dentistry. There my attention to detail, love for science, and mind for creativity all came together.

Philosophy: I think it’s important to stay active and maintain a good work/life balance. When I’m not in the office I enjoy making sculpture and cooking and anything outdoors- especially swimming and taking hikes with my dog Harrison. I am passionate about digital dental technology; coupled with minimally invasive techniques this is an exciting time to be in the dental world. Read more about my practice vision here.
