South Bend Dentist Expands Dental Team

SOUTH BEND, IN--(Marketwired - March 31, 2016) - Dr. Nicole Hurcomb, a trained restorative dentist who operates Tulip Tree Dental Care, has added a new front office employee to assist her growing dental practice. Patty recently joined the dental team as the new business assistant. As the business assistant, Patty will answer phones, help patients schedule dental appointments and work with insurance companies to give patients affordable dental care.

"Patty is such a great addition to our dental team," Dr. Hurcomb said. "She has great experience and a warm personality that makes our patients feel comfortable during their dental visits."

Dr. Hurcomb said Patty has prior experience working in a dental office and understands the needs and concerns of dental patients. She added that Patty already has become a fixture of the office and has helped many patients expedite their dental care.

"She's made a smooth transition into our office," Dr. Hurcomb said. "Our patients appreciate seeing her cheerful, smiling face when they walk into the office."

Tulip Tree Dental Care is a family-friendly dental office that offers treatments in general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry and short-term orthodontic solutions. Dr. Hurcomb has received additional training in restoring dental implants and offers Invisalign, which uses clear aligners to gradually move teeth into a more appropriate position.

Tulip Tree Dental Care can also straighten teeth without braces using Ortho-Tain, a removable oral appliance for children. The appliance, which looks similar to a mouthguard, helps guide the permanent teeth into place as they erupt and aligns the jaw in a more appropriate position. Dr. Hurcomb uses Ortho-Tain for children as early as 3, and in many cases, the children can forego expensive orthodontic treatment later in their life. Studies also show that Ortho-Tain can improve children's breathing habits, help children sleep through the night and reduce bedwetting. Dr. Hurcomb was born and raised in Crown Point and is a third-generation dentist. She started working in her father's dental office when she was 13 years old, learning about dentistry and how to manage a dental practice. She attended Indiana University Bloomington for her undergraduate studies and then earned her dental degree from Indiana University School of Dentistry. She worked at her father's dental practice for one year before moving to South Bend, Indiana in 2008. She purchased Tulip Tree Dental Care in 2014.

Dr. Hurcomb completes several hours in continuing education courses every year and has taken Bell Leadership courses. She has training in laser dentistry and is a certified provider of Ortho-Tain and Invisalign.
