Dr. Tom Fellman (Retired)

A longtime dentist at South University Dental, Dr. Tom Fellman has recently retired after more than 40 years of practicing dentistry. His exemplary leadership, tireless work ethic, relational personality and exceptional dental skills are missed by patients and co-workers alike at South University Dental Associates.

As a dentist who truly cared for his patients and loved his daily work, his decision to move onto the next chapter of his life was difficult. Dr. Fellman looks forward to exciting and active years of retirement ahead with his wife Kathy, four children (Jill, Julie, John, Jeff), and ten grandchildren. He anticipates spending abundant time at the lake, Costa Rica, and of course, following the NDSU Bison.

While Dr. Fellman no longer practices at South University Dental Associates , each of his patients can expect the same quality treatment, care and intentionality they have come to appreciate over the years. The majority of Dr. Fellman’s patients will be seen by Dr. Walter Samuel moving forward. Samuel is a five-year veteran of the practice at South University Dental.

We at South University Dental Associates are thankful for the years of excellence Dr. Fellman brought to our team and patients every day. We wish him well in his retirement, while appreciating and recognizing his consummate professionalism during his years at the practice.

Great people and service! Everyone here is so friendly and helpful! It makes a dental appointment so much easier! Thank you for the great service!
I have awful teeth and an awful fear of going to the dentist. That's not a good combination! But everybody at South University Dental is so extremely kind! Truly amazingly nice. They put me at ease and fixed my teeth so well it has been nothing short of life changing.
It has to be uncommon to look forward to going to the dentist, but I always enjoy my appointments with Dr. DeBates and my wonderful hygienist, Deb. I am lucky to be a patient of theirs.
Deb does an awesome job. Always a wonderful experience. I enjoy coming to the dentist!
Professional and friendly. They don't push me into procedures that are not necessary. They give me choices in my care. I wouldn't consider going anywhere else.
Great people! Everyone is very friendly. The Hygienists do a great job and Dr. Samuel is AWESOME!!!
It was amazing time, every minute of it from the moment I came in to when I left, the staff was very polite, they all wore pretty smiles. The dental assistants, dental nurses and doctors were very professional and it was vey fun. Fantastic Time
