Dental Services Now Available

January 6th, 2016
We are pleased to announce starting January 5th we will start offering affordable dental services to our patients. We have contracted with Wrightsville Family Dental where Dr. Stuart Beardsley, DMD will be treating our patients. The office has been open for about 8 months so everything is new. Dr. Beardsley served as a dentist in the US Air Force for 24 years. In 2009 he retired from the Air Force and went into private practice. He has worked at Dental Associates of Warner Robins, Gray Dental Associates and served as an instructor for the Dental Hygiene Program at Middle Georgia Technical College. He has a great chair side manner and we’re certain patients will love him. The dental clinic will be available on the first and third Tuesday of every month until we have a better sense of the patient demand. Our goal is to be open every Tuesday. The dental services are available to ALL of our patients if they’re willing to drive to Wrightsville. This includes insured, underinsured and uninsured.
For now we offer the following services to adults and children:
X-Rays
Cleanings
Filings
Extractions
Sealants
Emergency visits (triage and limited procedures)
*Services such as crowns, root canals, dentures will be referred out. We are working to develop special rates with these specialists.
