Our Story

Our practice was founded by Dr. Charles Robert Helsabeck in 1940. Our office was located where the Rural Hall Post Office is today. In 1960 we moved to our current location. There have been several renovations to the office, and we currently have seven treatment rooms.

Dr. Jim Helsabeck began practicing with his father in 1972 and they worked together for 16 years. Dr. Robert retired in 1988 and several associate dentists have worked alongside Dr. Jim since that time.

In October 2018, Dr. Vann purchased the practice from Dr. Helsabeck.  He continues to practice, working one day per week.  This transition has been seamless, as Dr. Vann has practiced in Rural Hall for over a decade. 

Dr. Jim and Dr. Vann complement each other well and use each other as valuable sources of information. They discuss cases routinely and collaborate on challenging restorative cases.
