Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry

Part of the dental field since she was 16, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Lynne D. Thomas, was inspired to become a dentist after working at an endodontic office. With a natural curiosity and passion for dentistry, Dr. Thomas became a dentist who specialized in cosmetics and Invisalign, and now offers various general, cosmetic, restorative, and preventative dental procedures in her Poway, CA practice, along with Dr. Juergen Langenbach. After joining the United States Air Force and being stationed in several locations, Dr. Thomas landed in Ramstein, Germany and met her husband, Dr. Langenbach. After returning to the U.S., the talented dentists opened their practice and have been working tirelessly ever since. With a long list of credentials, in 2005, Dr. Thomas became a Fellow of the esteemed Academy of General Dentistry. Dr. Thomas’ main mission is to provide every patient with outstanding dental work for superb results.


With impeccable training and a natural ability, Dr. Thomas is able to offer her patients a multitude of superior dental services. Dr. Thomas offers dental exams, cleanings, porcelain crowns, veneers, periodontal disease treatment, dental implants, root canals, sleep apnea appliances, Invisalign, and more.


Dentistry has been a part of Dr. Thomas’ life ever since she was 16 years old when she worked in an endodontic office. She saw that she loved everything, from diagnosing to patient relations, and knew that the question of her career choice had been answered. Dr. Thomas entered the University of Michigan Dental School in Ann Arbor, MI where she excelled in her studies. She graduated in 1995 and immediately joined the United States Air Force.

Dr. Thomas and Dr. Langenbach have both broadened their scope of care to include obstructive sleep apnea by becoming members of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine. This opens the possibility of an oral sleep appliance, under certain circumstances, to newly diagnosed patients, for those who are CPAP intolerant, or whose lifestyle doesn’t allow for its constant use (like campers). Through her continued education and dedication to her patients, Dr. Thomas continues to take courses in Orthodontics and is now a Preferred Invisalign Provider. Dr. Thomas is also working to become an Accredited Dentist of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD).
