Becky McIntyre

As Dr. McIntyre’s wife, Becky has been around dentistry ever since they got married. However, after their youngest son started elementary school, she returned to college and earned her dental hygiene degree from VA Western Community College in 1997.

She loves dentistry because it gives her the opportunity to help our patients improve their life and become healthier and happier. Becky’s first love is her amazing husband and six wonderful children, their spouses, and of course the 19 BEST grandchildren.

She loves spending time with the family and spends most of her vacation time traveling around the country to see all of them. In her spare time, she enjoys flower gardening, reading, and working with the teenagers at her church.

Cathy was very informative about the different procedures and how they would be done. They will check with my insurance and we would discuss cost after my next appointment.

I underwent 4 hours of heavy dental work under medicated sedation due to my dental anxiety plus 2 months ago I also did the same treatment and both times went extremely well. The Drs were nice and explained everything so my anxiety would stay in check. I’ve been a patient at Smiles for Life for over 6 years and also took my mother who suffers from advanced Parkinson’s to them for full dentures and they were fabulous 💙.

Listens to every concern and is caring, professional, compassionate, and understanding of every concern or situation that you have. Evaluating the entire oral structure and creating a plan and long term plan to preserve dental and overall health and peace of mind. Up to date procedures and equipment to review the entire structure and provide options to restore, preserve and have a healthy life and proper ability to eat and chew properly and to be healthy and digest a healthy diet. And to preserve teeth and avoid infections in the mouth and body . An investment, not a contined expense, which you use every day for the rest of your life. Smiles for life, and where you get life to smile.

Cathy is delightful and skilled hygienist that I’ve counted on for nearly 20 years. Wouldn’t still be traveling nearly an hour from my new home to this dentist office if I didn’t have full confidence in Cathy.

When I embarked on my journey to find the right dental implant service, I initially gravitated towards the two prominent national brands in the field. However, my search took an unexpected and incredibly satisfying turn when I decided to explore the offerings of a local implant provider. Little did I know that this local gem would redefine my expectations of what a top-notch implant service should be like. Here's why my experience with them was nothing short of extraordinary: Meticulous Charting of Teeth and Gums: ★★★★★ One of the first things that set this local provider apart from the national giants was their unwavering commitment to precision and detail. While the big names seemed more focused on the implant procedure itself, this local gem took the time to meticulously chart the condition of my teeth and gums. This attention to detail ensured that my implant procedure was tailored to my specific needs and challenges. It was clear that they understood the importance of a solid foundation for the success of the implants. Infection Prevention Education: ★★★★★ Implant surgery is not without its risks, and one of the key concerns is the possibility of infection. What truly impressed me was the depth of information and guidance this local provider offered regarding infection prevention. They didn't just gloss over this critical aspect; they took the time to discuss the infection possibilities associated with dental implants and, more importantly, outlined a comprehensive plan to combat and mitigate such conditions. Their proactive approach to ensuring patient safety was truly reassuring. First-Year Implant Supervision: ★★★★★ Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of my experience with this local implant provider was their commitment to the long-term success of my dental implants. While the national brands seemed content with the implant procedure itself, this local provider went above and beyond by offering required supervision for the first year following the implant surgery. This level of aftercare and ongoing support was simply unparalleled and gave me peace of mind knowing that my oral health was in capable hands. In conclusion, my exploration journey for dental implants took an unexpected turn when I discovered this exceptional local implant provider. Their dedication to detail, infection prevention, and post-surgery care were nothing short of outstanding. They not only surpassed the standards set by the national brands but also redefined my expectations of what a truly exceptional implant service should encompass. If you're in search of dental implants and want an experience that goes above and beyond, I wholeheartedly recommend giving this local gem a visit. They've certainly earned my trust and gratitude.
