Meet Our Director

Dean Thompson, PT, DPT, DAC


Dean Thompson has been very active and involved in sports for as long as he can remember. During his college years, he began to learn more about fitness, wellness, and the field of physical therapy. As he learned more, Dean became serious about pursuing physical therapy as a profession because he aligned with its sustainable approach to healthcare and using movement as a tool to improve people’s quality of life. He was educated at The College of New Jersey, where he graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Biopsychology in 2013, and then went on to Rutgers University, where he earned a Doctor of Physical Therapy in 2018.

Dean started working for Twin Boro Physical Therapy in March 2019 as a staff physical therapist at the Parlin location. He then became the assistant director at the Red Bank office in August 2021 and the clinical director of the Holmdel clinic in April 2023. Prior to joining Twin Boro, Dean worked at a chiropractic and physical therapy outpatient clinic.

Dean has taken several orthopedic-based continuing education courses throughout his career. Most notably, he completed a Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) Level 1 certification, a Direct Access Certification (DAC), and a Nxt Gen Institute orthopedic residency. Dean specializes in outpatient orthopedics and believes that great treatment starts with a thorough examination and evaluation. He then uses the information gathered to determine a patient-specific treatment plan that respects the patient’s current level of irritability and functioning while also representing their personal goals.

With each patient under his care, Dean utilizes Twin Boro’s One2FourTM Care Model. This unique approach looks at the entire continuum of care for the patient or athlete and helps them progress from a relatively low level of function after injury or surgery all the way through to peak performance after completing treatment. According to Dean, this model allows him and the patient to share a visual representation of where the patient currently stands on this scale and the steps needed to help them ultimately reach their goals.


Outside of work, Dean loves spending time with my wife, son, and their dog. He stays active by surfing, skiing, playing paddle tennis, and working out.

I had such a wonderful experience here. Felt like a retreat. Jaceline was amazing! She explains everything from start of treatment to the end. Been going for 3 months and this is probably best I’ve felt with no pain. Office staff is very friendly and attentive to all clients. Very professional and inviting place. Thank you all for helping me with my recovery.

Excellent place for PT. Kristen improved my tendonitis significantly. Very helpful and caring staff. Wouldn't hesitate to call on them again.
Margaret Senn (OT, CHT) at Twin Boro Physical Therapy in Westfield was personally recommended to me by my orthopedic surgeon for occupational therapy. I had a very bad fall and had multiple fractures in my elbow. After my surgery, I was so afraid to start my therapy sessions, but having Margaret as my therapist made it a very positive experience for me. Margaret sat down with me for my initial evaluation and I was immediately comfortable with her. She is very intelligent and knowledgeable and her work ethic is impressive. She goes above and beyond for every single patient she has and she gives each and every one of them her time and attention no matter how overwhelming her schedule is. I watched her several times interacting with her patients and she genuinely cares about their treatment and well being. Some of her patients were a bit challenging and she handled them in a courteous, respectful, considerate manner. After seeing her in action several times, I knew I was in the right place with the right therapist. I honestly feel blessed to have met her, as she was a pleasure to treat with and she really is an absolute treasure. A true master at her craft, she literally made my hand and elbow great again!!!
