dr-eric-200x300Dr. Eric M. Beckman
Dr. Beckman is a native to St. Paul, Minnesota.  He was inspired to pursue a career in healthcare at an early age as his father is a pediatric dentist and mother is a neonatal physician. Dr. Beckman prides himself on being a conscientious and caring periodontist.  He became a periodontist to offer assistance for patients who have been affected by gum recession, losing bone support, or losing teeth. Dr. Beckman also became a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontics in May 2013.  Completing the rigorous examinations before a panel of internationally respected peers demonstrates Dr. Beckman’s competence in his specialty.  This accomplishment is held by only a fraction of the active periodontists worldwide.
