Dr. Beyer grew up just outside Buffalo, New York and attended Penn State University for his B.S. degree in Physiology. After earning his DDS degree (Magna Cum Laude) in 1995 from the VCU School of Dentistry, he enrolled in the Orthodontic residency program at VCU and completed his training in 1997. He remained at VCU for an additional two years in the Department of Orthodontics as a full-time Assistant Professor where he directed the dental student orthodontic clinic, maintained a private practice, and trained the orthodontic residents.
In 1999, Dr. Beyer founded Commonwealth Orthodontics and maintains a full-time private practice in Midlothian and Colonial Heights. He was one of the very first Orthodontists to be trained in Invisalign and offer it in a private practice back in 1999, and he maintains active professional memberships in the American, Southern and Virginia Associations of Orthodontists and the American Dental Association (ADA). Dr. Beyer also had the honor and privilege of serving as President of the Medical College of Virginia Orthodontic Education and Research Foundation in 2005.
Outside of the office, you won’t find Dr. Beyer around town much, as he and his family enjoy traveling around the United States in their RV. If you are ever looking for advice as to where to travel, chances are he has been there (or at least somewhere close!). He also enjoys collecting pinball machines and arcade games — and he even has machines from his collection in both offices for patients to enjoy.
