Dr. Brad Durham
Founded by Dr. Brad Durham of Savannah, originally as Durham Dental, Dr. Durham had a vision of a dental office that was “beyond.” He wanted to go beyond what the insurance companies said that patients deserved. After training at various post-doctoral dental training centers, Dr. Durham learned that dental school did not teach him everything that was possible, and he started going beyond what other dentists thought was possible.
He developed a new approach to cosmetic dentistry that created amazing results while also improving the patient’s function, often resolving TMJ disorder symptoms. He and the team at the office adopted this as our new standard of care.
Dr. Durham presented this high level of treatment with an in-office patient experience that was unlike anything anyone had seen. The results were astounding, leading to the new tagline, “Beyond exceptional dentistry.” It attracted patients like Paula Deen, and many other pillars of the Savannah community.
After decades of beyond exceptional dental care, Dr. Durham retired, as Dr. Rod Strickland and Dr. Ryan Reeves took over the office’s ownership. At that time the office’s tagline became the new office name, Beyond Exceptional Dentistry.
Dr. Rod Strickland
When Dr. Strickland came to Savannah to work with Dr. Durham, the office’s beyond exceptional transformation was already well underway, but there was one segment of the patient base that needed the beyond treatment: dentures. Dissatisfied with the limitations of conventional dentures, which often led to ill-fitting and uncomfortable patient solutions, Dr. Strickland embarked on a mission to combine the principles of aesthetic and neuromuscular dentistry to design a denture that improved function, smile aesthetics, comfort, and even provided a youthful transformation of the patient’s overall appearance. Using this new approach, Dr. Strickland brought dentures to new heights. He eventually trademarked the process with the name Denture Fountain of Youth® or FOY® Dentures.
People came to Beyond Exceptional Dentistry from several states away to get the new, innovative dentures that transformed their appearance and how they felt. Dr. Strickland even began training other dentists on the new FOY® Dentures technique, again expanding the Beyond Exceptional Dentistry influence well beyond the borders of Georgia.
After two decades of unparalleled service at Beyond Exceptional Dentistry, Dr. Rod Strickland left the practice to embark on a new journey.
