Dr. Ben Thomas and his staff are professional, thorough, and caring. With each appointment, I have appreciated their attention to detail, expertise, and kindness. Trust is so important – and I know I can rely on Ben and his team to give me the highest quality care that’s driven by current best practice. I think what stands out the most is feeling cared for at this practice. That, coupled with exceptional results, is a winning combination! I highly recommend Dr. Ben and his team at Eugene Family Dental.

Dr. Ben was a referral from a friend when I moved from Denver last year and I feel like I won the lottery. I am a senior, and thus have had many dentists in my lifetime, including some very bad experiences. Dr. Ben and the people who work with him are the top of the line, in my opinion. They always fit me in if it’s a bit of an emergency, and more than capable to handle most situations in a professional, pleasant manner. I would definitely recommend them highly.

I had my first visit with Ben Thomas’s office recently and it was really good experience. I had gone to a franchised dental office locally, lured by free exams and was given a very bad dental health report and quoted $9000, of work needed. They said my gums were so bad it would cost about $800.  out of pocket. I went to Dr. Thomas for a second opinion and was told my gums were fine and I just needed a cleaning. Not only were they friendly and honest, they used a copy of my x-rays from the previous place but they gave me a couple more for free and discounted an exam. Then I got my teeth cleaned, was told I needed a couple cavities fixed and made me feel welcomed and appreciated as a client. I highly recommend this dentist.

Dr. Ben and his staff make my twice yearly dental visits comfortable and quick. They are consistently on time and friendly. The front desk ladies are cheerful and efficient. Dr Ben recommends procedures that would protect or improve my oral health but he leaves the decision to me. And the up to date equipment speeds procedures. Dr. Ben will be my dentist until he retires.

The staff is wonderful, helpful and kind. As someone who has had some previously bad experiences with dentists, I can honestly say Ben is a great dentist! He is gentle, straightforward and has patience (all pretty important in my opinion!). Our whole family spanning from ages 5 to 68 have been coming to Eugene Family Dental for many years and feel very comfortable anytime we come in for an appointment.

I am very impressed with Dr. Ben Thomas, the Technicians, and the Office Staff.  We were visiting from out of state and my five year old son fell and knocked his front two teeth loose about 45 minutes away from their office. This was a pretty traumatic experience for my son and myself and Dr. Thomas and his staff all stayed late for us to arrive and treat my son. They all seemed to genuinely care about making everyone feel comfortable and at ease. They were so good at talking with my son, accommodating him to help him feeling comfortable, and giving us choices.  I feel like it was the best experience and care we could have been given considering the circumstances.  They could have turned us away, but they didn’t.  They welcomed us and helped us. I highly recommend this practice.  Thank you to Dr. Ben Thomas and all the Staff that work with him.

Dr. Thomas and his staff are amazing. You are greeted with a smile and the waiting room is very appealing. From my very first visit with Dr. Ben Thomas, I was made to feel welcome and comfortable both by the friendly competence of the staff and the pleasant environment of the office itself. He is easy to talk to, he is understanding, listens to your concerns, answers your questions and is truly genuine. He also takes the time to explain your options and procedures. AND…..I hope he never leaves his practice and stays here in our beautiful “evergreen state”. SLK

I have been a patient with Dr Thomas’ office for almost 2 years, mostly for cleanings and routine care. I recently broke a tooth and called for an urgent appointment (there is a answering service number for a dental emergency, which I choose not to use). Stephanie returned my call and got me scheduled for the initial look at the tooth the next day. After a comprehensive look at my mouth, Dr Thomas reviewed all of my options to repair the tooth. He was informative, thorough and attentive to my questions and concerns. An appointment was set for the following week to start the work for a new crown, working within my pending travel schedule. To my pleasant surprise, I was texted the next morning offering an appointment later that day due to a cancellation. I was able to adjust my schedule and take the appointment. The initial work for my new crown has been done, and I have a trustworthy temporary in place for my trip. I will have the finished crown set upon my return. Every member of Dr Thomas’ staff, from Stephanie at the front desk, Clarissa and Annie the dental assistants, and Celestine the hygienist, have been attentive, knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. My mouth is in very good hands at Dr Thomas’ office.

When my long-term dentist of over 30 years retired (Richard Gabriel), my dental care has now been handled by Dr. Ben. I knew he’d be good when Richard decided he would become Dr. Ben’s patient, too. I’ve been very pleased with the staff, Dr. Ben, and how they help me maintain my dental health. I love the remodeled office, and the new to me fluoride varnish to help protect my teeth!!! Thanks so much! —Kris Ward

Dr. Thomas has been our dentist now for many years. We have had our 3 boys seen by Dr. Thomas. Unlike most kids, they don’t dread going to the dentist. They love how shiny their teeth look after a cleaning. They all have had sealants done and xrays, and Dr. Thomas and staff are always so patient and never push us to have something done that we are not ready for. We have sensed moved, but continue to travel every 6 months back to Eugene from Seattle to get dental work done. It’s difficult to find a dentist that you can trust these days. Dr. Thomas has a kind gentle voice that calms you even with a sharp tool in your mouth.

Dear Dr. Robertson: “I wanted to tell you how grateful I am with Dr. Thomas in your retirement. He is fabulous – absolutely wonderful. He was so personable, kind, thorough, explanatory, calm – just all the good qualities you chose and considered as you retired. Thank you, Dr. Robertson, for turning the reins to such a terrific doctor.” Cheryl W.

As a relatively new patient, I am super impressed with Dr. Thomas and the staff.  My most recent experience, I had an old crown break, they were able to get me in early the next morning, and start the replacement process.  The office is super clean and neat, they have the latest technology and processes and the staff is great.  I highly recommend Dr. Thomas’ practice.

Ben Thomas is a great dentist. He and the entire staff make taking care of your teeth a pleasure.The office feels light and open and at the same time you have total privacy. I never feel that Dr. Ben is in a rush or that he is looking for things to do with my teeth. If a concern comes up it is addressed and options are discussed for ways to approach it. Celestine has been my hygienist for many years and she is terrific. I have also had Jill take care of my teeth as well as Karrisa. They all work as a team to give their people the best dental care. If you are looking for a practice to become a part of for your dental care I believe you will find it with Ben Thomas and his entire staff.

I love my dentist! Dr. Ben Thomas and his staff are excellent, highly professional and thorough. I actually enjoy going to the dentist and they do everything to support preventative health and ensuring your teeth and gums are healthy for the long haul. I highly recommend Eugene Family Dental for your dental needs. Thanks Dr. Thomas and staff!

Dr. Thomas is an excellent dentist and I recommend him highly. He has a very calm friendly demeanor and is very thorough and clear in explaining issues and procedures. His work is excellent and he operates very efficiently. My dental work has always been comfortable and much less than my personal fears because of Dr. Thomas’ skill. The support staff at EFD is also great, from Dental Assistants to Dental Hygenists to the Office Staff. They provide a very personable welcoming atmosphere. I am completely satisfied with my care by Dr. Thomas and his staff and expect to continue to visit Eugene Family Dental for my regular cleanings, check ups and dental work for many more years.

I appreciate Dr. Ben Thomas and his entire staff. Ben is kind, professional and patient. I was with my previous dentist for decades before he retired, so Dr. Thomas is new to me, and from the onset he has been top notch. And, in addition to his and his staff’s professionalism and expertise in dentistry, they are just incredibly kind and generous people. After my last appointment, I had car trouble. Stephanie, Ben, and Sandy all came outside (in a rain storm) to help me figure out what was going on…I think that says a lot about the kind of place Eugene Family Dental is!

Craig L. from Eugene, OR (Source: Yelp)


I love my hygienist Jill. She is thorough and will do what it takes to make you comfortable. She cares about your oral health and can help you improve the care of your teeth and gums. Ben, the dentist in this small, friendly practice with a personal touch, bought this practice from Eugene legend David Sarett about 4 years ago. I wish all health care was this personal and caring. Many family and friends go here and are happy with care.

After my previous dentist retired I went to a few others including Dave Matthew’s (which was ok but spendy) and gentle dentle (awful). After a coworker spoke highly of Ben Thomas I went there and never looked back. Very friendly staff, have loved every hygentist I’ve had. Dr. Ben is honest, takes all the time needed to answer any questions, fully explains options/ details, and is very gentle and kind. Highly recommend!!!

As a longtime patient, I continue to be impressed with the professionalism combined with the personal touch of all the staff. It’s a welcoming environment that fosters to my specific dental health needs. From what I see, they continue to implement the newest standards in dental science and it shows in their practice. A special shout-out to Celestine.

I am a long time patient at Eugene Family Dental, and I’m writing now to inform others who are looking for a new dental office that will serve well for the long term. Every practitioner at Eugene Family Dental is both competent and friendly. They think first of the needs and personal experience of the patient. They work gently and with the utmost integrity and up to date knowledge. My whole family has healthy teeth thanks to their care. I highly recommend Eugene Family Dental.

Dr. Thomas is attentive, focused, professional and genuinely a nice guy. His assistant’s are awesome as well. Lets not forget those wonderful ladies behind the desk out front with the texts, emails and phone calls to remind the forgetful folks like myself. The shots are painless and he has no issues getting you good and numb. Its the best dental experience I’ve had in a decade.

I am always reluctant to go to the dentist. Not because of any fear of the dentist, but I have fabulous teeth and I don’t want to be bothered with this task. When I go, I realise it’s never a bother to be there, it’s enjoyable! He is patient with me and I’m grateful that he does such an exceptional job. I know I’m well taken care of and I honestly have nothing to worry about when I go in. The entire staff is happy, upbeat and very knowledgeable. I’m very happy to have such wonderful professionals taking care of me!! Zoe Brady
