WHAT TO EXPECT
Welcome to Bedford Dental Care! We appreciate the opportunity to show you how we are different.
When you come to see us, we will LISTEN! Many seek us out with pressing needs – broken or decayed teeth that are causing pain, missing teeth that are causing trouble chewing, a smile that causes embarrassment, etc. Others wish to maintain their teeth and smile just the way they are. What’s important to you is important to us! – we are here to help you meet your goals, whatever they may be.
If it’s been a while, or if you’re embarrassed by your teeth – don’t worry! We won’t “shame” you or give long winded lectures. We want to help, and we are excited that you are giving us an opportunity to do so. Our team is designed to be able to handle nearly any situation under one roof. Even if you feel embarrassed or like your mouth is hopeless, we can help!
Most of our new patients see the dentist for their first appointment (and schedule with the hygienist after that). This allows us the ability to personalize your care. After a dental assistant takes the necessary records (digital x-rays, digital photographs), the dentist will discuss your goals and take a look at your mouth. When we look at the mouth, we aren’t just looking for cavities. We believe it is important to do a comprehensive examination of every aspect of your oral health: teeth, gums and bone, bite, esthetic appearance, muscles and TMJ, and an oral cancer screening.
After the exam, your dentist will speak with you about their findings. If there are concerns, your dentist will explain why it is a concern – and then work with you to find a plan that meets your goals for your oral health and smile.
We will also establish an appropriate plan with the hygienist to ensure your gums and bone provide a healthy foundation for your teeth.
In terms of fees – we strive to be entirely up front and transparent in our financial arrangements. We know how frustrating it can be when bills are unclear! Our treatment coordinators are experts in helping you understand your financial commitments, maximizing any insurance benefits you may have, how to utilize HSA/FSA accounts, etc. We understand that everyone has a different financial situation and we work hard to find a way to help everyone afford the dentistry they desire and deserve. We even offer monthly payments!
We look forward to meeting you and are ready to show you how we are different!

- DR. SAM GEORGIADIS
Hello everyone! It feels awesome to return to the Granite State to join this awesome practice and team. I am a New Hampshire native and was born and raised in the Queen City. I attended the University of New Hampshire where I studied Biochemistry, joined a chemistry fraternity (yes, it’s as nerdy as it sounds), and decided I wanted to be a dentist. I would often return to Manchester during my undergraduate years to shadow local dentists and get to see what goes on behind the scenes. It’s during this time that I fell in love with the profession when I was able to watch so many people get amazing and transformative care.
- DR. DUSTIN HOANG
Originally from Austin, Texas, I have made the journey to the beautiful landscapes of New Hampshire. I attended Texas University, where I studied Biomedical Sciences, and then to the Baylor-Texas College of Dentistry, where I honed my dental skills over four rewarding years. I had been practicing dentistry in the bustling city of Dallas for the past three years, but felt the pull of adventure and the call of the outdoors that brought me to Bedford Dental Care. I knew it was time for me to change out my running shoes and cowboy boots for some ski shoes and hiking boots.
