Our Story 

The Story of Nebraska Family Dentistry

In the last 12 years, the Nebraska Family Dentistry group has grown to include several locations. This is due to our team being passionate about dentistry, creating positive experiences for each patient, and providing excellent care.

Our Passion at Nebraska Family Dentistry

At Nebraska Family Dentistry, our dental professionals are dedicated to the relationship between oral health and overall health. Our vision is to improve the overall health of every patient by improving their oral health and collaborating with the appropriate healthcare professional(s). As a result of providing positive experiences to our patients, they enjoy seeing the dentist. Because they enjoy seeing the dentist, we are able to help them improve their overall health and well-being.

We are passionate about helping patients with dental anxiety overcome their fears in order to become healthier and improve their overall wellness. We aim to provide a positive experience for our patients by creating a relaxing and inviting environment at each and every one of our offices. Whether you are looking for someone to help you with routine dental cleanings or you are in need of a complete smile makeover, search for us. You might be able to find us under our Lincoln Journal Star award name, “Lincoln’s best dentist,” “Lincoln’s best dentist near me,”or “dentist near me.” Chances are, that we offer the service(s) you are looking for. Pair that with affordable dentistry and one of our phenomenal, compassionate dentists and you will most definitely leave looking and feeling great.

Our Promise to Patients

We can’t claim we are the best dentists in Lincoln, NE, but we have worked and continue to work, very hard to carry the title “Lincoln’s Best Dentist.”

In the past, the Lincoln Journal Star awarded us the title for “Lincoln’s Best Dentist” and for this, we are extremely proud. We are thankful to the community of Lincoln for this opportunity and this title. To earn this title, everyone on our team is trained to deliver three promises to every patient at any of our family dental offices.

ada code of ethics

At Nebraska Family Dentistry, we believe that overall health of patients is tightly connected to dental health. Beyond simply talking about specific dental treatment needs, our team members educate patients about overall health and recommend making lifestyle changes for the overall health of our patients.

As our organization grows, we are looking to unite more frequently with medical professionals. By collaborating with experts in the medical field, we would like to work on closing the gap between the fields of dentistry and medicine by bringing them closer together for the overall wellness of our patients.
