Meet Our Elk Grove Children's Dentists - Elk Grove Kids Dentist & Orthodontics 

Bradley Thompson, DDS

I was born and raised in Playa Del Rey, California. I left Southern California for my undergraduate studies at Brigham Young University. During this time I went on a dental mission trip to the Galapagos Islands and discovered my passion for dentistry. I soon returned to study dentistry at the University of Southern California and earned my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. During my time at USC, I was able to learn all aspects of dentistry. I especially loved working at the USC mobile clinic with kids.  Children's dentistry has been my passion ever since.

In my spare time I love to travel, play soccer and volleyball, watch sports and spend time with my wife and son. We travel to Brazil every year and I speak fluent Portuguese. I aim to provide the highest quality care to all of my patients.

Sam Suliman, DDS, MDS

Dr. Sam Suliman is a native of Stockton. He completed his Associate Degree at San Joaquin Delta College.Through his hard work, effort, and unconditional love and service to the Stockton community, he was awarded the Community Involvement Program (CIP) full ride scholarship to the University of the Pacific (Go Tigers!). This once in a life time opportunity fueled Dr. Suliman’s ambition and in 2003 he received his Bachelors degree in Chemistry-Biology.

Dr. Suliman's career was just beginning. The year following his graduation from college, he was accepted to the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco and received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree in 2007. Dr. Suliman took his love for service to another level and commissioned into the United States Navy. He practiced dentistry for several years as a Navy dentist and he had the honor and privilege of serving with a Marine unit in Japan. He then returned home to complete his orthodontic residency training at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis. He received his Masters of Dental Science degree and a certificate in the specialty of Orthodontics. 

Dr. Suliman continues to serve as a Navy reserve dentist. The decision to return home and serve his community first as a citizen and second as an orthodontist was rather simple. Dr. Suliman is happily married to his beautiful wife Suzanne. They are blessed with a beautiful daughter named Layalina. In his spare time, Dr. Suliman enjoys spending time with family, skiing, travelling, and playing the mandolin. 

Dr. Suliman welcomes you and he looks forward to bringing beautiful smiles to the very community that shone a smile on his life and career.
