Dentistry is a way to uniquely serve others and create healthier, happier people and communities. It is touching when the treatment rendered is life-changing and so significant it impacts the patients and their loved ones.
I love helping others lead fuller, healthier lives. There is great joy in knowing that not only am I creating beautifully healthy smiles, but also I am saving lives with the dental sleep medicine side of my practice.
It is professionally and personally fulfilling to get to know each person I treat, as they become part of our dental family. Each person is unique and their teeth all tell a story: I love stories! In knowing a person’s health, and learning their lifestyle, experiences, and circumstances, I can tailor a dental plan that provides effective solutions to his or her short- and long-term needs.
I hope the encouragement I give to patients has as much an impact on them as the treatment because that is where good habits are formed and healthy choices made create lasting, positive changes in their lives.
-Sylvia Beeman, DDS
Staying abreast of developments in dentistry is a life-long commitment Dr. Beeman made when she finished dental school. She believes that staying stagnant is to keep one’s head buried in the sand and is detrimental to the health of her patients and her profession.
Instead, Dr. Beeman seeks out a range of continuing dental education opportunities, learning from the leading researchers and practitioners in the dental field. This ensures she is providing the highest-quality dentistry, lasting results, and using advanced, proven techniques, technologies, and materials.

Beyond the Practice
A San Gabriel native, Dr. Beeman and her family have lived in Monrovia for almost 20 years. Dr. Beeman and her husband have three children, two daughters-in-law, and a grandson with another on the way: son Joshua and his wife Rachel; son Mark, serving in the Air Force, and his wife Gabrielle; and daughter Felicia, attending medical school at the University of Arkansas.
Dr. Beeman also has a large extended family and treasures time with them. She helps care for her aging parents and an auntie, as well.
When she’s not seeing patients, Dr. Beeman is often on the go. She can be found in the early morning hours at Foothill Gym, where she works out with the Boot Camp ladies, or hiking the local mountains on Saturdays.
Around the house, she enjoys tending her garden of veggies and flowers, along with birds and bees. An avid home cook, Dr. Beeman enjoys creating new recipes and loves giving cooking lessons, via the phone, to her children, who are becoming accomplished cooks themselves.
