Meet Ashley, Treatment Coordinator for Periodontal Associates – The Dental Implant Team

What made you want to work in the dental field?
I started as a receptionist, so being in the dental field fell in my lap. Over the past 14 years I have grown to love helping people. It is very satisfying to comfort apprehensive patients so their dental needs are met.

When did you start working at Periodontal Associates? What’s your favorite part about working here?
I started working here 3 years ago. I love our dental team and the family atmosphere here.

What’s the best part of seeing someone through their treatment here (start to finish)?
I love creating relationships with each patient. I love seeing their confidence and happiness with their new smile.

What doctor do you usually work with? What is your favorite part about working with them?
I am the treatment coordinator for Dr. Versman and Dr. Beckman. Dr. Versman is extremely caring and he takes the time to relate to every patient. Dr. Beckman is great with every patient and his dental team. He is a very patient and talented surgeon.

What do you think makes Periodontal Associates stand out from other Periodontal offices?
Our dental team strives to make each and every patient feel like a part of our office family. We provide exceptional care the first to the final visit.

Meet our Team: Dr. Eric Beckman

beckie and wifeWhat made you want to become a dentist?
It is a perfect combination of my passions: art, science, engineering, and interaction with people every day.

What made you want to specialize in Periodontics?
The rehabilitation of peoples’ smiles. I liked that I could give patients a second chance to have their smile and confidence back.

What’s your favorite part of being a Periodontist?
Giving people their lives back again. This “life” includes their self confidence through a new smile (no more missing or crooked teeth), their health, and their ability to eat the foods they want.

Are you originally from Colorado and what’s your favorite part about living here?
I am from Minnesota, and really do miss parts of the Midwest, BUT there are so many things about Colorado that I love: four seasons can be had in one week, access to a great city as well as the mountain life where I love to ski and fly fish. I have appreciated the welcoming and inviting atmosphere of Coloradans.

What do you think makes Periodontal Associates stand out from other Periodontal offices?
I chose to work with Drs. Versman and Heller because of the great reputations in the dental community and their conscientious dental care. The way that they and all of the dental team at Periodontal Associates focus on patients having a great and comfortable experience is what inspired me to join the practice.
