Parkersburg Family Care Dental Welcomes Dr. Samuel D. Bever

Coplin Health Systems is pleased to welcome dentist Samuel D. Bever, DDS, to Parkersburg Family Care Dental. Dr. Bever is excited to join the dental team and provide quality oral care to patients of all ages.

“For over 30 years, I have had the privilege of helping patients with their dental needs at my private practice in Vienna,” Dr. Bever said. “Now, I’m looking forward to this transition and the opportunity to be a part of the caring and compassionate staff of Coplin Health Systems at Parkersburg Family Care Dental.”

Dr. Bever joins Dr. James Szarko and Dr. Keith Hickman at the dental clinic. The Richwood, W.Va. native earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery from West Virginia University’s School of Dentistry in 1990. He also received his Bachelor of Science degree in 1986 from West Virginia University, where he majored in Chemistry.

“As a dentist in a rural community, I always look forward to having a significant impact not just on the lives of my patients but also on the community as a whole,” Dr. Bever said. “One of my goals as a dentist is to develop relationships with my patients and their families, educating them about the importance of good dental hygiene and, ultimately, their overall health.”

Rob Dudley, CEO of Coplin Health Systems, said Dr. Bever has excellent expertise and experience in dentistry and a generous heart for his patients.

“We are honored to have Dr. Bever join Parkersburg Family Care Dental and support us in our commitment to providing quality dental patient care to the community,” Dudley said. “With Dr. Bever’s skills and compassion, we believe he will have a tremendous impact on the clinic outcomes, improving patient’s oral health.”

Dr. Darrin E. Nichols, Chief Medical Officer of Coplin Health Systems, added, “Dr. Bever’s experience and leadership are a valuable addition to the Parkersburg Family Care Dental team. His ability to create a positive treatment experience with patients will benefit the community.”
