Learn More about Our Practice

I’m Dr. Halberstadt, and I’d like to personally invite you to explore what makes our practice unique and special.


We are a full service family practice treating patients of all ages. We are proud to serve Frankston and the surrounding areas and strive for compassion and understanding in all aspects of care. We offer all general dentistry needs, but we also understand that a healthy and confident smile involves more than just the teeth. Treatments for facial esthetics are also available! Be sure to ask us if you have any concerns about fine lines and wrinkles of the face, loss of volume in the lips or cheeks, concerns about sun damaged skin, and many other common complaints.  We can treat these issues with Botox, radiofrequency, lasers, dermal fillers, or any combination of these modalities.

Our patients say.

"I've been reluctant to change my dental Dr from West TX back to East TX. Just because I'm comfortable with the dentist I've had for the last 13 years. But work schedule and time off are always an issue. I had my first experience this morning with Dr. H in Frankston with two cavities and 2 extractions. He did a super job, didn't even feel the shots for deadening! As well as doing all this in one hour! Fast and efficient! I highly recommend this Dr!"

Paul S.

"From A to Z, everything was done in a superb professional manner. Then to Dr. Halberstadt himself. He was caring, compassionate, thorough and extremely informative. When I headed to my visits, I did not get that dental anxiety At ALL. THANK YOU, DR. HALBERSTADT AND YOUR ENTIRE STAFF! I appreciate each and every one of you!"

Julie S.

"Warm and welcoming environment. Painless tooth removal, and excellent care. Everything was explained in detail, conversation was pleasant and I didn't feel shunned by the issues I have with my teeth. He even set up quotes for me to have additional work done that's desperately needed, and it's within a good price range. This is a dentist that truly cares about his patients. My family will be using Frankston dental from this point on."
