Meet the Dentists

 

Dr Paul E. Beavers, D.D.S.

paul_hsDr Paul loves his family farm and the 20 years he worked there with his brothers. But at a young age, Paul decided he did not want to work the land forever; he prefers a climate controlled atmosphere. In the 8th grade Paul wrote his first paper on dentistry and says this combined with the guidance of his two dentist uncles were influences on his decision. Plus, he enjoys helping patients improve and maintain their dental health.

Paul began practicing in 1974 after receiving his B.S. and M.A in biology at Wake Forest University and his D.D.S. from the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry.

NASCAR races, snow skiing, boating, and fifth wheel camping with his wife fill Paul’s time when he’s not with patients. He and his wife Jean have a daughter, three sons, two of whom work in the family business, and twelve grandchildren– four granddaughters and eight grandsons.

 

Dr Jonathan P. Beavers, D.D.S.

jonathan_hsDr. Jonathan offers many reasons why he chose dentistry as his profession — the most important is helping and interacting with people. He says assisting patients to feel better about their experiences at the dentist is one of his favorite aspects of his work. His philosophy is to provide the highest quality dental care to each patient without discomfort in a timely manner.

Jonathan joined his father, Paul, at the family practice in 2000 after graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a B.S. in biology and earning a D.D.S from the UNC School of Dentistry.

Jonathan enjoys spending quality time with his wife, Karen and their two sons, Andrew and Owen. He also participates in many forms of exercise including golf, basketball, volleyball, and skiing.

 

Dr Leah G. Beavers, D.D.S.

leah_hs-1Dr. Leah originally hails from the small southern town of Cottonport, Louisiana. After watching her two older brothers and older sister become practicing dentists, Leah realized the profession was the right place for her as well. She attended Louisiana State University for both undergraduate and professional degrees (Geaux tigers!).

While attending dental school in New Orleans, Leah fell in love with the music, food, and culture, as well as her future husband Mark. Their family numbers six strong with four sons George, William, Luke, and Henry. Leah enjoys travelling, visiting her huge family in Louisiana (she loves being an aunt), and painting.

“I enjoy being in a field that is continually evolving and getting better. I love sharing with people the knowledge I’ve learned so they no longer need to be in the dark, and can make their own educated decisions. I believe that a beautiful, healthy smile leads to self-confidence and an increased quality of life.”

 

Dr Mark E. Beavers, D.D.S.

mark_hs1Dr. Mark enjoys talking, joking and learning about his patients. In fact, after growing up with his father, Paul, and brother, Jonathan, as dentists he knew this was right for him. He realized that being a dentist would allow him to build relationships with patients while he helped them look and feel better.

Mark joined the practice in 2004 after earning his D.D.S. at Louisiana State University School of Dentistry. He also attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he received a B.S. in biology and B.A. in history.

Mark has an interest in music as well. He plays the guitar, banjo, dobro and an assortment of other instruments. He also enjoys traveling, reading, and keeping up with his sons George, William, Luke, and Henry.
