Not to brag (ok, maybe a tiny bit), but we work hard to take care of every molar, bicuspid and sharp little incisor we have the honor to serve.

The people need teeth, my friends

Of course we care about teeth. We’re dentists! But it goes way deeper, all the way to the roots of who we are.

Why we're champions for teeth


Here for every tooth since 1903

We’ve been making quality care more affordable since our founder, Dr. Curtis Beauchamp, opened his first office in 1903. Like a lot of visionaries back then in Los Angeles, he did a lot more than start a practice. He opened up dentistry to the people and championed the idea that everyone should have good oral health.

He did it by delivering excellent care at affordable prices and letting his patients pay over time. Back then, they called it "Credit Dentistry." These days, it's how almost all of us afford the braces, root canals and implants we need.

By the 1930’s Dr. Beauchamp and his son, Dr. Robert F. Beauchamp were treating thousands of patients at multiple locations. Fast forward to today, and we serve over 1 Million people a year in four states.

But we still live by Dr. Beauchamp’s ideals : quality dental care for all the people. The people need teeth. We’re here to make sure they have them all life long.
