Meet our Doctors
Dr. J Beeler
Dr. Beeler was raised in Memphis, TN. He attended college at University of Memphis where he studied Biology and earned his bachelor’s degree. He earned his D.D.S. at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis.
He was commissioned as an officer in the US Navy upon graduation from dental school and his first duty station was at Great Lakes, IL where he successfully completed a residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry.
Dr. Beeler then received a new assignment to serve as the dental department head and sole dentist on the USS NEW YORK, stationed in Norfolk, VA. During his time on the NEW YORK, Dr. Beeler received several awards and led the dental department during the ship’s maiden deployment. He concluded his time in the Navy in the largest Navy dental clinic where he provided comprehensive dental care to all branches of military service and worked shoulder to shoulder with every dental specialist.
He then resigned his commission as a dental officer and moved home to Tennessee with his wife and their four children to pursue his dream of opening his own practice. That dream became a reality in November of 2015 when Town Creek Family Dentistry began accepting new patients. Since that time the practice has grown tremendously and Dr. Beeler has become very busy seeing patients and has a large team supporting him.
Dr. Beeler is very passionate about dentistry and vigorously continues to expand his knowledge about current procedures and is always adding more. He completed his training with the Midwest Implant institute in Columbus, OH in August of 2017. This training has built his confidence and experience in placing dental implants and restoring complex cases of missing teeth. He also has attended courses focused on the restoration of full mouth treatment and cosmetic dentistry that has provided a firm foundation for treatment plans involving veneers and complex full mouth restorations. Dr. Beeler has recently embarked on a curriculum at the Spear Dental Seminars. He feels that it is his responsibility to be at the top of his profession and to provide the most up to date treatment to our patients.
Dr. Beeler is a very busy husband and father of 4 beautiful children and most days feels like he is just trying to keep up. When he has free time he likes to spend it relaxing with family, or even better – with his family on the lake.
