Our Philosophy

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.

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.
