Tigger, my 18 y/o cat had trouble eating and pawed at his mouth. Dr. Beckman and staff treated him with excellent care and knowledge of his certain problem. Tigger is now content and eating and will live now painless and in peace. I will feel confident taking any of my cats to Dr. Beckman in the future.

My golden retriever loves to chew! Sadly, she cracked her tooth from chewing on a hard bone. Dr. Beckman, Annie, and the rest of the staff were great! Sadie now has a crown and no longer chews the wrong bones! I am very grateful for the wonderful care delivered with compassion that she received. I highly recommend Dr. Beckman and his staff!

My 13 year old Maltese was diagnosed with chronic leukemia. Her vet noticed several of her teeth were in bad shape and strongly suggested I take her to AVD. I first spoke with Annie who is amazing! Her empathy for my fuzzy childs health and my anxiety was so appreciated. The morning of the procedure, Dr. Beckman reassured me with x-rays and a procedure plan. Phoebe was handled with kid gloves. Lisa kept tabs on the procedure and gave me updates. The after care was hands on as well, including phone calls from Annie weeks after the surgery. All staff members showed sincere concern for my dog, me and my mother who came for support. AVD offers payment plans through CareCredit which was also very helpful. While I hope never to have to endure the hesitancy and anxiety of this type of experience again, I know that if I had to do it over, I wouldn't hesitate to call AVD. Big thanks to Dr. Beckman and his amazing staff! Phoebe is doing just great and now has the energy and stamina of a puppy! I'm SO glad we got rid of all those rotten teeth!

This guy is a friendly and a caring doc who loves what we love most, our companions. He's not in Atlanta every day, but he's worth making an appointment with for our loved companions. Kermit, our Italian Greyhound, had ajor tooth problems but it was all done as the good Doc said it would be.

I've been taking my Pomeranian, Cody, to Dr. Beckman for the past 2 years - he is absolutely wonderful, and I wouldn't take my dog to anyone else for his dental care. Dr. Beckman took time to carefully evaluate Cody before undertaking some significant dental surgery. Now we follow up for regular cleanings to maintain Cody's teeth the best we can. I wouldn't trust anyone else to care for Cody's mouth - Dr. Beckman is extremely talented and no one knows Vet Dental medicine better. If you want the best dental care for your pet I would definitely recommend Dr. Beckman. You will get excellent care for your dollar, and both you and your pet will be happy you went to see him.

When my vet referred my little Shih Tzu to Dr. Beckman, I was surprised to learn the extent of her peridontal disease. Dr. Beckman was so gentle with her during the exam, and he explained everything in detail in terms I could understand. In spite of losing 15 teeth, Dr. Beckman was able to save some teeth that were in danger. And the bone grafts were a success. Within a couple of weeks, I was so happy to see my 9-year old Shih Tzu feeling like new again and running around with the energy of a puppy!

Dr. Beckman is one of the top veterinary dental specialist in the country and certainly the best in Atlanta. Being a referring veterinarian, I have great confidence in his abilities and level of care. I also have taken two of my own dogs to him and was extremely pleased with the care he and his professional staff provided. If your pet needs specialized dental care, Dr. Beckman should be your first choice.

I had a young cat diagnosed with feline stomatitis. The cat was in agony. Each treatment option we tried failed. The next option was a full tooth extraction. I was a little worried. My local vet referred me to Dr Beckman. I did a little research and We hit the jackpot for veterinary dentistry. Dr Beckman is the expert in the field. We had a consultation and he performed the tooth extraction the same day. Our little cat is growing and thriving and doesn't even know he has no teeth. Dr Beckman and his staff saved our little guy.

I recently referred a special case to Dr. Beckman and his wonderful crew. They did a great job in all areas from owner care and information to patient care. I also felt informed as the veterinarian. If your faithful friend needs dental work, and you want that special touch...you could not do better than Atlanta Veterinary Dentistry!

I wrote this initial review 3/2010: I learned of Dr. Beckman through my routine vet. Dr. Beckman added Atlanta to his practice a few years ago. Two years perhaps? We have been going to Dr. Beckman since he came to Atlanta at the Sandy Springs address. Two of my dogs have periodontal disease and have had terrible experiences with dentals and extractions UNTIL I went to Dr. Beckman. My experience with him and his staff has always been extremely positive. Now my dogs have all their dentals provided by Dr. Beckman. Dr. Beckman can save teeth that other vets would just pull. My dog's mouths are so much healthier and this can be seen in their overall health. I am very happy with the practice and Dr. Beckman is wonderful. He explains everything and I believe I leave my dogs in very loving, capable, knowledgeable hands. He is very easy to contact and always returns phone calls and/or emails very promptly. The only negative thing I have to say is: why didn't he come to Atlanta sooner!!!!???? Update 11/2011: My opinion has not changed since my last review in 2010. I still feel extremely positive about this practice. Dr. Beckman is top notch in veterinary dentistry. You will be very happy with this practice, as I have been. Since 2010, we added a third dog (puppy) to our household. He was a rescue and had a severe overbite. Dr. Beckman was able to correct this without extensive surgery or orthodontics.

Having a board certified dentist in the area, saved my dog from losing all his teeth. Dr. Beckman explained in detail the problem, and treatment began immediately. You can always get it touch with him if there are any questions. I highly recomend his office.
