  • Dr.
    Preston Beck

    Dr. Preston M. Beck has been at Atascadero Hills Dental since August of 2021. A passion for dentistry was sparked during a dental humanitarian trip that he took with his brother, Dr. Nathan Beck to the islands of Tonga in 2010. Since then, they have had the goal to work alongside each other as dentists in a family-owned practice. At Atascadero Hills Dental, he also loves working with his wife, Rachael, a dental hygienist as well as his father, Maril, the business manager. Dr. Beck graduated from the USC School of Dentistry (Fight On!) and then joined the United States Navy to help pay for dental school & continued to develop as a dental professional. 

    When he is not a dentist, he loves coaching his 5 children in local sports leagues and exploring the beautiful Central Coast. He is a tennis fanatic & still tries to find several hours a month to feed his competitive spirit. His passion for providing excellent dental care to his patients has caused him to earn a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Implant Dentistry through the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. He strives to provide a positive and personalized experience to each one of his patients.
