Dentistry the way it should be, Where the Patient Comes First, In the Comfort of a Hometown Family Practice.

Dentist Foxboro, MA - Eugene B. Nichols, DMD

Looking for comfortable, confident and convenient care from dentists in Foxboro? You've come to the right place. From the minute you walk into our office you will notice a difference. We know every person's dental needs are unique. That's why we offer a comprehensive selection of treatment options in a comfortable, convenient atmosphere. We're confident we can provide superior dental care that no other dentist in Foxboro can offer.

At Nichols Family Dentistry, we believe that the patient’s needs should come first. We try to find the very best solution for each patient and try to keep the cost of that treatment down where we can. It’s not about what insurance wants to cover, it’s about what’s best for the patient. We want our patients to feel like they are visiting family when they come to the office. A hometown family practice philosophy is a thing of the past in most of today’s healthcare, but not in our practice.

We specialize in improving smiles. You can learn more about our smile-enhancing services on our website, including:

Our Philosophy

Preventive dentistry is our goal for every patient.  It involves the daily care, good nutrition, at least one check-up a year,  at least 2 cleanings per year, bite-wing x-rays once a year and full mouth x-rays every 3 years.  This schedule is what helps  maintain good dental health.  Preventive dentistry may not be where we start with every patient, but it's where we like to finish. 

Restorative dentistry is basic repair of the mouth.  We mend broken or leaking fillings, build crowns and bridges, fit partial and full dentures, realign your bite.  Where necessary, gum disease is treated, or root canal therapy recommended.  The prevailing goal behind restorative dentistry is a simple one: keep all your teeth for all your life.

Cosmetic dentistry is coming of age with new materials and procedures that make a beautiful smile accessible to everyone.  Because our preventive and restorative programs have been so successful, we now have the luxury of considering cosmetic treatment for gaps, chips, and otherwise less-than-perfect smiles.  Veneers, implants and bleaching are some of the common of these services in today's practice.

What to expect at your first visit

Welcome to Nichols Family Dentistry.  It will be a pleasure to show you our facility. Under the New Patient Tab, you will find all the paperwork you will need to fill out prior to your first appointment.   Included are the Patient Registration, Patient Liability, Medical History, HIPPA Notice, HIPPA Authorization and Transfer of Records Request.  Feel free to send the records request right away to your previous dentist so we have your records when you come in.

Your first visit with us will take approximately 1 to 1 ½ hour.  This time is reserved for you so that we may focus on a complete dental work up.  This will include recording all present conditions, fillings, crown, etc.  Next we will take x-rays if needed, do a complete cleaning and oral examination.   We also do a periodontal exam, which checks the health of your gums.   All of this is done to make sure we have a base line on which to start the best oral care for each patient.
