Our Dental Patients Love Us

"I have never been a Dentist fan until today. The staff from entry to exit are awesome, everyone was friendly and helpful. I had been dreading going to the dentist and now I’m looking forward to going back. They explained everything with clear understanding of what my options were. I will recommend them to everyone I know!"

James P., Weatherford, TX

"September was the first dental visit I’ve had in about 13 years. I was nervous but knew I needed to go. Dr. Novak and Jana made me feel very at home. Now, I look forward to those visits because Jana has become a friend and we laugh the entire time I’m in her chair. We get each other and I love it. Today was no exception! I will never visit another dentist, they have my heart (and teeth lol )!!!"

Angie G., Weatherford, TX

"Very thorough. And— the dentist always, always does a cancer swipe which is so important! My teeth are always cleaned so well that I’ve not had a cavity, or needed any other dental work for literally years. BEST DENTAL TEAM EVER!"

Get Enlightened By Our FAQs

We understand if you want to address any questions or concerns you may have about our practice before you finalize an appointment. That’s why, for your convenience, we have included a handful of the most common questions we hear from those learning about Beacon Dentistry for the very first time! Detailed answers from our dentists can be found below, so feel free to take a look or call us directly to get more information.

How do I find the best place to get dental work done?

We recommend that you first confirm what your specific dental needs are and whether or not that practice can effectively meet them. Do you want to prioritize your budget or find a dentist that’s close by? Are there certain services you know you want outside of your routine checkups and cleanings? Do you want cosmetic work or dental implants to be an available option at your go-to practice? We encourage you to give us a call so you can visit the office in-person as well. Feel free to read our many patient reviews and doctor bios to get additional insight!

What is the best way to find a dentist who does dental implants?

Assuming the dentists you’re looking at provides dental implants, you’ll want to do your homework on their background before you set up an appointment. For one, many dentists only do one phase of treatment (the restorative phase) rather than the entire treatment in one place (which includes implant placement as well). Dr. Johannsen, our dedicated dental implant expert, has advanced training in implant dentistry and restorative dentistry, making him the perfect fit for someone looking to replace teeth. No matter how complex your needs are, he’s got the clinical experience to make your smile complete!

What do you do if you can't afford a dentist?

Beacon Dentistry always makes prevention a priority, meaning we work to ensure patients get the routine preventive care they need to avoid dental problems in the first place. Not only does this work to avoid unnecessary stress and discomfort, but it helps you save money as well. With that said, we understand if you have a tight budget. Even if you don’t have dental insurance to use, we offer other financing options in-house. This includes our Beacon Dentistry Savings Plan, which helps you complete your most important dental services at an affordable rate.

How can I book an appointment online with a dentist?

If you don’t have time to call our office to set up an appointment, that’s okay! Our online appointment tool makes this process incredibly easy, whether you’re a brand-new patient or visiting us for your routine checkup. Just look for the “Request an Appointment” button in the top-righthand corner of our website, click the button, and provide a little information about your dental needs. Once you schedule, a team member will call you at least 24 hours in advance of your visit to confirm your appointment.
