I needed an implant on one of my rear molars, and Dr. Thousand and his team did the implant work at the Aurora office. I had to do the procedure with minimal sedation due to the fact that I had to drive myself back to work after the procedure. Despite this, there was minimal pain and discomfort, and everyone did an incredible job. He's very good about telling you what he's doing and is very detail-oriented. He is never dismissive and always takes time to answer questions.
After everything healed up I went to my regular dentist to have the crown installed. After the crown placement I had a terrible headache and toothache for a week before my regular dentist would see me again to adjust the crown. However, even after she made some adjustments I was still in pain the next day.
I didn’t know what else to do so I reached back out to Dr. Thousand for help even though he wasn’t responsible for the crown. Knowing that I was in acute pain they were able to get me in the same day at the Littleton office. Turns out there were some major defects on the crown that my dentist had overlooked that contributed to the acute pain, and would have likely resulted in infection down the road. Dr. Thousand spent almost an hour working with me and modifying the crown for temporary use so that I could have it placed back over the implant while a new crown is made.
He didn’t need to do this since this wasn’t a mistake attributable to his office, but he and his team went above and beyond, and didn’t even charge me for the work. I had been in so much pain I could barely focus, and so this help meant so much to me because I could now function again. This was at the end of their day so I’m sure it meant a later day for everyone, but I can’t thank you all enough for giving me that relief. We’ll certainly be coming here for future dental issues, and referring Dr. Thousand and his team to friends.Read More
We have been going to Periodontal Associates for 27+ years. We see Dr. Heller and he is great. I have had bone replacement surgery and continue to see the practice for check ups every six months. Great caring group of staff, and hygienists as well. Wouldn't go anywhere else.Read More

Dr. Thousand is pure genius! He fixed a failing implant & placed a new 1 as well. I will never go anywhere else. That man preforms miracles!Read More
Dr. Doug Heller is one of three of the doctors that make up the driving force in my efforts to save my teeth and my overall health. What started out as one broken tooth led to the possibility of my losing all of my teeth to gum disease. Panicked, I reached for a second opinion and found Dr. Heller, along with my regular Dentist & Orthodontist. I am now the proud owner of only 5 implants, as opposed to full upper and lower implants OR full dentures. Though dental procedures are hardly fun, Dr. Heller and his staff have made it a smooth process, from financial to face-changing....I couldn't be happier. 😁 You be the judge. My profile pic, there on the left, is a fine example of their handiwork.
Double Bonus: Doorbell just rang. Beautiful plant has just arrived to cheer me in my recovery....Thank you, Dr. Heller and your wonderful Staff!
I was sent to Dr. Beckman on a referral from my dentist because of a slightly loose tooth. Dr. Beckman evaluated the situation and recommended a gum graft and bite adjustment. It is now six weeks since the procedure, and while the recovery was not painless, it was pretty much exactly as he said it would be. Upon evaluation earlier this week it was clear that the procedure was successful.
Dr. Beckman and the staff were very nice, supportive and professional and I would highly recommend this practice to anyone needing this kind of help.Read More
Dr Beckman performed a gum graft. I was nervous, but he explained everything clearly and thoroughly. The staff were very accommodating when I had to reschedule and they keep the schedule flowing on time so I was not sitting and waiting beyond the appointment time. The only downside was having to ask multiple times about the cost and what my calculated out of pocket would be. Would definitely recommend.Read More
5 stars! Dr. Beckman and the entire office staff provide superior customer service and care. I recently had a gum graft performed and from the very first meeting I felt at ease. Dr. Beckman took his time explaining the procedure and patiently answered any questions I had. On the day of the procedure they go the extra mile to make sure you are comfortable- they use top of the line medical treatment for an effective procedure and speedy recovery. The team was very supportive and available through the entire process and even calls to check on you post procedure. I highly recommend Dr. Beckman and his team!Read More
I needed to get some implants and Dr. Heller was recommended. Thankfully, he was absolutely wonderful. I wasn't sure what to expect, but he explained everything that needed be done and the procedure began. Now it's not an over night process, but the weeks after each step was a piece of cake. I am so happy with my implants. I had to have a tooth pulled a few weeks ago, and I don't know how he does it, but I had zero pain, no complications and I needed no pain Meds. The staff is so friendly and I highly recommend them.Read More

Extremely happy with the outcome!
I had a great experience with Dr. Heller and his staff! I was dreading the procedure because I had heard so many scary stories from others who had had gum grafts done in the past (by other periodontal dentists). However, the procedure was quick, my recovery was easy, and my gums look fantastic! Thank you to Dr. Heller and his staff for an amazing (and much less scary than I had expected) experience. If you are putting off this kind of procedure, don't wait any longer - it really is not bad at all!Read More
I put off seeing the periodontist because seriously, who puts this at the top of their to-do list? I finally decided it was now or never and went in to have a gingival graft. Dr. Heller and his staff were informative, careful and dare I say, fun! The procedure took around 30 minutes and pain was minimal. Recovery was easy and quicker than I expected. Follow-up appointments were fast and Dr. Heller expressed how pleased he was with his work and that's exactly what you want hear!
I highly recommend Dr. Heller and Periodontal Associates for your periodontal needs!Read More
We only refer to the best! Thank you so much for quality care!Read More
In July of 2014, I discovered I was going to need a dental implant. For me, just the thought of dental surgery caused major angst. Thankfully, my anxiety was quickly eliminated through the professional and caring hands of my dental implant team, led by Dr. Eric Beckman with Periodontal Associates.
To begin with, Dr. Beckman's office personnel were kind, flexible and accommodating to me. The staff contributed immensely to a positive experience for me.
Next, Dr. Beckman did an excellent job of completing the implant surgery and follow up. I always felt Dr. Beckman was constantly monitoring my comfort and questions during my appointments. His sense of humor and true compassion definitely helped to reduce my anxiety.
I do not have a moment of hesitation in highly recommending the services of Dr. Eric Beckman. His expertise, skilled hands and gentile spirit combine for an OUTSTANDING periodontist.!
This was the best experience I've ever had in regards to dental work!! The staff is amazing and make you feel like you are going into a wonderful home! Pleasant, warm and very caring! Dr. Beckman did an amazing job on my issues and I would not hesitate to go back, if I have to! He was pleasant, caring and really listened to my issues. He made me feel relaxed and calm, as if I was going to a best friends home and hanging out for a day of fun.Read More
