I was in for some major dental work, capping all my front teeth that were crooked and discolored, some even chipped.Yesterday was a big day for me to get all my upper front teeth prepped. It was a very long visit but I never felt any pain and the dentist was very gentle and did an amazing job on my teeth. He's a perfectionist and that's what you want.The staff is super nice and friendly as well, and they make you feel at ease. Right now I am wearing my temporary crowns and it already looks awesome! I am surprised he doesn't advertise himself as a cosmetic dentist because he is, as well as a regular dentist. I have been going to him (Tim Riesz) for many years now and I would never go anywhere else.The staff and dentist fully explain all the procedures beforehand so you know what to expect.This afternoon I have to go back to get my bottom front teeth prepped and I know I won't need to feel scared, despite all the work that needs to be done.I love this dentist and all of his staff! Brian at the front desk is especially nice and fun to interact with. I highly recommend this dental facility to anyone looking for a dentist in Venice or anyone who is tired of having ugly teeth.This dentist is the best in Venice.

Davis & Beyer DDS PA
I recently needed to find a dentist/prosthodontist in the Venice area, and several people had recommended Davis & Beyer. I'm glad I made the switch! The staff and Dr. Davis are extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and you will be treated with kid gloves and state of the art equipment. You'll be glad you made the change. I know I am.

Aspen's office phoned me, turns out the whole problem is with my Insurance Company. Delta Insurance took it upon them selves to transfer me to another Doctor an hour from me, without me knowing. I have started a lot of dental work with Aspen and have been happy with what has been done so far.

Awesome! After being told that an extraction at Venetian Dental would cost over $700 with insurance, Venice Village did it for $160 the same day! Xrays, Extraction and Follow up! They were helpful and upfront about their prices! Will definitely be back!

I knew I'd found my dentist after my first appointment. I recently got some dental implants from Dr. Overbeck and everything went so well. The staff cared for me professionally and were very thorough.

Dr. Overbeck does an amazing job. Had to get an implant and was very nervous. Doctor and staff were great and alleviated the stress I had. Highly recommend them.

Very professional. I know the dentist trade and this office has it right on all accounts. The hygentists are the most through and gentle I've found.

My implant surgery was completely pain free and I felt comfortable the entire time. I would recommend this practice to anyone I know.
Tips & Advices
  • Pick Your Plan: Most people purchase three main varieties, usually through their employers.
    • An indemnity or fee-for-service plan means you'll have to pay for annual deductibles and co-insurance payments out of pocket.
    • A preferred provider organization is less costly, and you choose from a network of dentists. However, PPOs have some limitations and accompanying deductibles.
    • A dental health maintenance organization plan limits you to just a few choices of dentists, and one doctor handles all of your oral care needs. However, these HMO are usually much less costly.
  • PPO plans and dental HMOs work with only a select number of doctors. While that usually means fewer costs, it also means you have less choice in the dentist who can treat you Before purchasing the plan, you'll receive a list of dentists in each network. From there, you can then pick a plan with doctors who meet your standards and requirements.
  • When picking a plan, you need to look at just how much you'll pay for each and every service. For instance, some plans won't cover your fillings or X-rays, while others may charge more or less for a crown or tooth extraction. You don't want to be caught off-guard by unforeseen charges.
  • If you're truly comfortable with a dentist and you feel he or she can be an ally in your ongoing oral care regimen, then consider signing a plan to just keep that dentist available. That means potentially deal with costs and other insurance-related factors that you might have wanted to. If need be, you might be able to work with the dentist's office to address some of the plan-specific concerns.
  • Ask family, friends or colleagues for recommendations. They will be able to provide details about a dentist's demeanor, operating style and approach to patient care
  • Meet with any prospective dentists to ask about what treatments they perform most often, procedures they're not as familiar with, what accreditation they have or any organizations they belong to and how their offices handles insurance and payments.
  • Consider driving distance, location and office hours.
  • Check With Your State Board: The state board can outline what requirements your dentist must meet and offer information about any discrepancies in the their background and if he or she has faced any disciplinary actions.
  • Remember Your Angles - When brushing your teeth, always place the brush at a 45-degree angle..
  • Don't Forget the Tongue – Your tongue is the largest source of bacteria. Brush it front to back and don't forget the sides.
  • Floss Everyday - Each time you floss, have at least 18 inches of floss available. For optimal control, hold the floss between your thumbs and forefingers.
  • Watch What You Eat - Sugar, alcohol and coffee contain phosphorus. While some can prove beneficial, too much of this chemical can eat away at your teeth and gums.
  • Keep in Mind the Mouthwash - Mouthwash can be helpful if used to supplement proper brushing and flossing. Most mouthwash brands contain chlorine dioxide, a chemical that targets the majority of oral bacterial strains.
Yellow teeth are the result of a number of bad habits, mainly smoking, drinking too much coffee and improper nutrition. Many dentists will treat with a whitening procedure.
These painful bumps are the result of irritation to the soft tissue of your mouth. These sores can make brushing almost impossible. There are a number of different causes for sores, including anemia or a vitamin B-12 deficiency. Your doctor will have to examine the bump, find its cause and then develop a specific treatment plan, including the use of corticosteroids to reduce inflammation or antimicrobial mouthwash.
