Nicole L. Hurcomb, DDS
Nicole L. Hurcomb, DDS grew up in northwest Indiana and has lived and practiced dentistry in the Michiana area for the majority of her career.
She is the oldest of five children and is a third-generation dentist. Dr. Hurcomb started working in her dad’s office when she was just 13 years old and spent every summer there until she went to dental school. She learned how to run and manage the front office and also how to assist the doctor in caring for patients. This valuable experience helped her grow her love for dentistry.
Dr. Hurcomb graduated from the Indiana University School of Dentistry and then went on to practice with her father for a year before moving to South Bend, IN. Here, she practiced at two locations for seven years before starting her own practice, Tulip Tree Dental Care, in 2014.
Dr. Hurcomb is dedicated to keeping up with the latest advancements in dentistry and has completed several hundred hours of continuing education. She has even completed courses at the prestigious Bell Institute.
Another way Dr. Hurcomb stays ahead of the curve is through membership in several professional organizations, including:
- The American Dental Association
- The Indiana Dental Association
- The North Central Dental Society
- The Academy of General Dentistry
- Chicago Dental Society
3rd Coast Study Club (a branch of the Seattle Study Club)
When she is not in the office, Dr. Hurcomb spends most of her time with her husband, children, other family members, and friends. She enjoys watching college and professional football and sharing recipes.
She loves baking so much that she often shares the fruits of her labor with her patients and dental team. The professional team and happy patients at Tulip Tree Dental Care even make jokes about her second job as a baker!
