Dr. Michael Beckerman has acquired the practice of Dr. Steve Woodall in Villa Rica, GA.

Dr. Steve Woodall grew up in Villa Rica, GA. He graduated from West Georgia University with a BS in Biology then he attended Emory University School of Dentistry, graduating in 1974. He set up his practice in a lovely historic home in Villa Rica just one year later. With almost 45 years of dentistry under his belt, it was time to find his successor. His son had gone to dental school, but after spending a few years working as a general dentist, decided to go back to school and become an orthodontist. He now has a thriving practice down the road from Dr. Woodall. Dr. Woodall’s two daughters were very successful in each of their respective fields and his beautiful wife was ready to go on more trips.

Dr. Michael Beckerman grew up in Georgia. He attended college at the University of Georgia in Athens and received his Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the Medical College of Georgia in 2011. After practicing in Atlanta for 7 years, he decided it was time to buy his own practice. He was getting married and wanted to find his forever practice and settle down with his new bride.

After some unsuccessful suitors, when Dr. Beckerman met with Dr. Woodall, they instantly knew it would be a wonderful transition. With similar practice philosophies and personalities, it was easy to see that the patients would welcome Dr. Beckerman into the practice and Dr. Woodall would feel good leaving them in his hands. Dr. Woodall is excited to stay on part-time to help with the transition and continue doing what he loves but at a slower pace. Dr. Beckerman is anxious to learn what he can from the years of experience that Dr. Woodall has, but is also ready to make his own mark on the practice and try out some new things.

We wish everyone the best of luck!
