Often, patients ask Dr. Courtney Beussink why she wanted to be a dentist. Her interest in the profession actually sparked from a cheerleading accident she endured in high school. Little did she know the same office who fixed her smile back then, would later become the practice she would own!
Dr. Beussink attended Southeast Missouri State University and later graduated from UMKC School of Dentistry in 2010. After obtaining her doctorate degree, she and her husband, Matt, immediately moved back to Bollinger County, where she was born and raised. In 2014, Dr. Beussink had the opportunity to buy a well-known dental practice in Marble Hill from the dentist who mentored her: Dr. Milde. She feels very fortunate Dr. Milde and his staff at First Street Smiles were committed to working alongside her and providing the same compassionate family dentistry the patients had come to expect.
First Street Smiles provides complete dental care for the whole family. The 13-member staff offers the routine maintenance cleanings to complete smile makeovers. Dr. Beussink has implemented digital x-rays with panoramic views and in-office, same-day permanent porcelain crowns. She feels very proud to offer small, hometown service with the latest in dental technology in a practice just three miles away from where she grew up.
