Ben Thomas, DMD
Ben Thomas is originally from Corona, CA and lived there through high school. He received his bachelor’s degree in business marketing at Brigham Young University and then moved with his wife, Sarah, to Portland, Oregon.
Growing up in a dental care family, Ben was no stranger to the dental field. With his dentist father and hygienist sister, it didn’t take long for Ben to realize that he wanted to follow in their footsteps. After 6 years of undergraduate work at Brigham Young University and Portland State University, Ben entered Oregon Health & Science University – one of the top dental schools in the country – in 2004. He graduated in 2008 and starting practicing dentistry.
Ben started off in a corporate group practice in the Portland area until he and his family moved to the Eugene area in 2011. Not satisfied with the restrictions being in a large, commercially run practice, he decided three years of working for someone else was enough. He soon fulfilled his goal of becoming his own boss so that he could provide care that was in the best interest of his patients, not his group’s business decisions. Ben thoroughly enjoys being able to make great care decisions by working directly with his patients and learning each of their individual needs.
Honesty, quality care, and kindness are Ben’s hallmarks as a dentist, and he has worked hard to create an environment of compassion, family-friendliness, and comfort at Eugene Family Dental. By making his office feel comfortable and homey, Ben has created a place where patients feel welcomed, not put off by stark, bland, and clinical care.
Ben is a member in good standing with the American Dental Association, the Oregon Dental Association, and the Lane County Dental Association.
Ben has dedicated his career to providing you with the best that dentistry has to offer. He is continually educating himself and his staff on the newest techniques and approaches in order to provide you with state-of-the-art, antiseptic, and comfortable dental care.
Outside the office, Ben enjoys spending time with his family. Ben and Sarah have 3 children – William, Gwen, and Andrew. When he isn’t busily caring for patients or spending time with his family, Ben loves basketball, tennis, golf, or pretty much anything that keeps him active and moving! He also enjoys playing guitar and pencil sketching.
