James Beard, DDS, MS, Periodontist

Webster Dental Care, Hoffman Estates & Lakeview


My mission in dentistry is to be the ultimate problem solver. With over 30 years experience, my diverse training and clinical background have given me a comprehensive skill set encompassing not just periodontics but all aspects of dental practice.

I strive for excellence and ultimate attention to detail in all of the services I provide. The services I provide transcend traditional periodontal practice by providing comprehensive and innovative solutions for your particular oral health concerns.

Personal care is of utmost importance. I will always offer what I believe to be the best plan for your particular needs yet have the flexibility to customize that plan to meet your desires, resources, and time availability. I promise to answer all of your questions, address all of your concerns and provide an optimal solution that you can easily understand. In short, I listen to those that I am privileged to serve.

My practice emphasizes dental health and personal integrity. I do not suggest unnecessary treatment and do not employ unproven or trendy methodologies. I am devoted to preserving and enhancing your oral health by working side by side with your primary dentist. Together we can formulate the most suitable plan and coordinate that treatment to achieve the most favorable outcome.

You can be assured that as my patient you will be supported with kindness and respect. I expect to maintain a long term relationship with you as preventive care after treatment is the key to long term well being.

On a personal note, I thoroughly enjoy my three dogs and an occasional trip to the Rockies.
