NORTHBOROUGH – Family Dental Group of Northborough brings family-forward, quality dentistry to Central Massachusetts.
The practice, which began in Paxton in 2006, was founded by husband-and-wife dentist duo Nikhil and Archana Lavana. The couple began to expand their practice — opening an office in Gardner — before heading to Northborough. The construction started in 2018, and in 2020, just months before COVID-19 hit, the practice officially opened.
“I’m a people person, so I get to talk to a lot of people,” Archana Lavana told the Community Advocate. “I realized I get to change a lot of lives too — especially people who have bad oral hygiene and cavities that want to go out into the world… People have become very aware of their looks, and I like giving people back their smile.”
The practice seeks to be the “one-stop shop” for any dental problems. Family Dental Group of Northborough’s wide array of services includes dental implants, crowns, root canals, teeth whitening, fillings, laser dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and much more. The practice has an in-house periodontist (Dr. Mohamed Hassan), and helps people with Invisalign, which Lavana noted has become more popular recently.
Family Dental Group of Northborough’s wide variety of services are available quickly. The practice seeks to minimize patients’ wait time, guaranteeing fast service — especially in the case of emergencies. The practice’s three offices help the company have an experienced dentist available whenever patients may need them, said Lavana.
“We take people as soon as possible. Some things need to be worked on right away,” Lavana explained.
And the practice’s excellent customer service helps people feel better — even if they’re in the midst of a dental emergency.
“We try to help the patient as much as possible. Our staff is very kind and caring. People who come to dental offices may be in discomfort, so you have to be nice,” Lavana said.
Recently, the practice’s commitment to serving patients has expanded; after hiring a bilingual staff member able to help translate, Family Dental Group of Northborough now welcomes Spanish-speaking patients.
And the practice is comfortable with patients of all ages —it’s the Family Dental Group of Northborough, after all!
“All of us are concerned about our children’s health. Generally, the child comes in and then the mom and dad follow. We have experience working with families — dealing with children — and our hygienists work well with children and make them comfortable,” Lavana said, noting that all the dentists have experience with every different age group.
Family Dental Group of Northborough is located at 318 Main Street. For more information on the practice — including details about the business’s two other locations in Gardner and Paxton — please visit https://www.lavanafamilydental.com/.
