Born and raised in Dubuque, Iowa, Dr. Thomas McCoy graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from the College of St. Thomas at St. Paul in 1987. He returned to Iowa, where he earned his DDS from the University of Iowa, College of Dentistry in 1991, then moved to St. Louis, Missouri, to complete a General Practice Residency at St. John’s Mercy Medical Center. Dr. McCoy entered private practice in 1995 and owned two dental offices; one in Dubuque and one in Manchester.

After 17 successful years in private practice, Dr. McCoy joined together with his Equity and Operating Partners to make a shared vision a reality and founded AppleWhite Dental Partners. That vision created a company that responds to the needs of modern dental patients by providing 21st Century dentistry. By allowing dentists to enjoy the value of their practice without losing income, and providing a path for young doctors to enter their chosen profession through mentorship, AppleWhite Dental Partners’ dental practices are able to focus completely on offering great dental care to patients in Iowa and surrounding regions. Dr. McCoy maintains professional memberships in the American Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentistry. In his free time, he enjoys golf, reading, and spending time with family.
