Digital Radiography (X-rays)

Digital Radiography (X-rays)

Our digital radiographic system (both panoramic and individual intra-oral x-rays) are taken without conventional radiographic film. Instead, the images are captured like conventional radiographs, but in a digital format. An added bonus is digital radiography uses as little as 10% of the radiation of conventional films. We also offer 3D Cone Beam radiographs. The 3D Cone Beam Scanner creates virtually limitless views of the face, neck and teeth, for more accurate and complete treatment planning and execution.

Debbie Dye

She is one of New Mexico’s leading dental administrative consultants, having trained offices in the use of the practice management software, Dentrix and best practices for office administrators.

Paul Holt

Paul Holt

Administrative Assistant

Dr. Beers has named Paul his chief information officer, this is due to the fact that Paul can act as Google without the typing or Siri with a more snarky answer. Paul is the guy that helps you understand the investment you will make in keeping your teeth healthy. He also gives the insurance companies a hard time if they don’t pay their fair share.

Paul also serves as pastor of First Baptist Church of Magdalena and records a podcast that mixes the two things you should never talk about in polite company, religion and politics. He served 5 years in the US Air Force working on the avionics system of the F-16 just because he likes odd numbers.

If you need help getting financing for your dentistry, if you need help understanding your dentistry or if you need help finding out what your dental insurance might pay on your dentistry on the only blue moon this decade, ask Paul. Oh, and he isn’t so bad at using Photoshop either.

Dr. Beers and his staff are careful and thorough. They always take a thoughtful approach to any problem, and take into account medical issues that might relate to dental procedures. I trust Dr. Beers and his staff to do the right things and take the appropriate precautions. I have been going to him for 20 years and feel he deserves “customer loyalty”.

Carol Pittman

Top notch dentistry and amazingly nice hygienists who take care of my special needs. Even if Dr. recommends another specialist, he’s sending you to THE best in the state. He consults with those specialists to make sure you’re getting the best of care. Please don’t shy away due to cost. Your dental work is costly here but you’ll not have to return for shoddy work or post-op problems. Trust me. Twenty years later and my fillings, crowns and other work are still in top notch shape!

Wendi Carrillo

I have known Dr Beers for more than 15 years. He has replaced four of my crowns and a bridge as well as fixed some fillings. All of this works and looks great taking at least 10 years off my age. He is very professional, reliable and responsible doctor taking pride in his work. He would not stop trying until the results are perfect. I did not have any complications. Dr Beers is simply the best dentist I have ever known. He and his staff provide an excellent service to our community. I recommend him highly.

Ivan Avramidi

Giving Back

IMG_3582Dr. Beers believes that giving back should be an important part of any business. That is why he is involved in local and international programs to help those that need a hand up to overcome some of the obstacles and challenges they have been given. The vision Dr. Beers champions is that we can all give according to what we have received. From the widow’s mite to the billionaire’s checkbook, we are all capable of making a difference.

The pictures we share are of the people that Dr. Beers and his staff had the privilege to serve both near and far. Please consider how you can be a blessing to people in New Mexico or around the world as you choose to go yourself or work though a charity you deem worthy.

In New Mexico, Dr. Beers works with the New Mexico Dental Foundation. The Donated Dental Services coordinates dentists and laboratories to assist those who cannot afford the dentistry they need.  The New Mexico Dental Foundation also coordinates the Mission of Mercy Event. This event is held in different parts of the state of New Mexico and dentists from around the state are invited to donate their time and services to help anyone who asks regardless of their financial situation.

Around the world, there are people who have never seen a dentist much less have access to one. That is why Dr. Beers works with two Christian organizations that believe showing love to our neighbors involves using the gifts, training and knowledge we’ve been given to make a difference. He works with Global Health Outreach, part of the Christian Medical and Dental Association and HealthCare Ministries, part of the Assemblies of God church.
