Justin Bethel, DDS
Owner Dr. Justin Bethel is from Benton, Arkansas. As an Arkansas native he is extremely proud of Arkansas Dentistry & Braces’ mission of providing affordable, quality dental care to all residents. Dr. Bethel graduated with Bachelor of Business degree from the University of Arkansas and is a true Razorback fan! Dr. Bethel worked in a few different professions before applying to dental school. He attended the University of Tennessee Dental School and graduated in 2000. After graduation, he started a practice in his hometown of Benton, AR. Dr. Bethel treated each patient like family and focused on providing excellent care. Word spread about Dr. Bethel’s care and professionalism and his practice quickly became a successful startup within one year, which is almost unheard of in the dental industry. Dr. Bethel and his team expanded their services into more locations in the following years, and in 2014, he formed Arkansas Dentistry & Braces along with Dr. Ben Burris. Dr. Bethel enjoys spending time with his two children Jack (15) and Anna Kate (8) and spending his weekends outdoors playing golf, hunting and skiing.
