Meet Dr. Chuck Bauer
Dr. Charles Bauer’s journey followed a unique path to the dental profession. As a junior in high school, he discovered a hidden passion for dentistry, so he began to obtain the necessary knowledge and skills to become a dentist.
Dr. Bauer headed off to the University of Nebraska at Lincoln to pursue his goal. His academic performance was so impressive that he was accepted into the University of Nebraska College of Dentistry before he even completed his undergraduate degree.
Four years later, after countless hours of study and extensive training, he graduated from the University of Nebraska College of Dentistry, earning his doctorate degree. Dr. Bauer then moved back home to Hastings, Nebraska and took over Dr. Loren Beck’s dental practice. Dr. Robert Howard later joined the practice as a partner.
Dr. Bauer has always relied on advanced technology to provide our patients with the best possible care. In the early 1990’s, Dr. Bauer was one of the first dentists in Nebraska to computerize his office.
He’s also invested in state-of-the-art equipment, including laser dentistry, CAD-CAM crown and bridge imaging, 3D Cone-Beam X-rays, and digital full-mouth scanning. This allows Dr. Bauer and our dental teams in Hastings and Doniphan to retrieve the most accurate impressions of our patient’s mouths and utilize this information to create precise treatment plans.
For patients who are anxious about visiting the dentist, we also feature minimal oral conscious sedation.
