The History of Our Practice

Founded by Dr. Charles Robert Helsabeck in 1940, our office was originally 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. While in high school, Dr. Vann would observe Dr. Jim and spent several summers at the office watching and learning the dental field as she prepared for a career in dentistry. Dr. Jim and Dr. Vann complement each other well, using each other as valuable sources of information. They discuss cases routinely and collaborate on challenging restorative cases. After working together for 12 years, Dr. Jim decided to sell the practice to Dr. Vann in October 2018. Because of Dr. Vann’s longevity with the practice, this transition has been seamless. Dr. Jim is now semi-retired, seeing patients one day per week.
