Premier Dental Services, Relaxed Office Setting

Belton Comprehensive Dentistry, under the careful hands of dentists Dr. Joe Paradise and Dr. Thomas Burriss, has a long history of providing the best in dental care for the citizens of our area.

When Dr. Thomas Burriss came to Belton in 1972 after he graduated from the University of South Carolina Medical School, he began to practice in the rear rooms of Dr. Ron Tysl’s practice on River Street.  Eventually, his practice grew into the new, spacious office on Pine Top in 1994.

Dr. Burriss built the building with the intent of adding new dentists to practice under his direction.  “However,” he said, “it took almost 14 years to find the right dentist who would carry on the tradition of excellence in patient care that was expected by myself and our community.”

And that person was Dr. Joseph Paradise. He also began practicing dentistry in Belton at Dr. Tysl’s  River Street office. He later joined Dr. Burriss and purchased the practice in 2008.

Dr. Paradise said, “I was looking to join a practice with a diverse population where I could really get to know the patients and provide them with the best dental care possible.”

The current practice includes 11 staff members working together to meet each patient’s needs. The team provides a variety of services including implants, routine cleanings, teeth whitening, crowns, dentures, extractions, root canals, and orthodontic treatment. Belton Comprehensive Dentistry provides patients with premier oral care.

“I am very thankful to do what I love in the great community of Belton. And I am blessed to have such a great supporting staff.  I could not ask for a better team,” said Dr. Paradise.

“Years ago, I started seeing Dr. Burriss for my dental care,” stated patient Gail Davis. “The practice had great personnel who were professional and equipped to handle all dental care that we might experience, so I wanted the same type of care for my entire family! Now, we all are patients of the practice.”

Located at 1000 Pine Top Road, the practice is open Monday through Thursday, 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM, and two Fridays a month for morning hours.   They accept checks, cash or credit cards and are the preferred in-network provider for insurance companies Delta, MetLife, Aetna, Ameritus, Assurant, and Cigna.

Lead-time from appointment scheduling to services rendered is usually two weeks.

“But we try to get patients in as quickly as possible when they are having difficulties,” said Landis Riddle, front office specialist.

“Your health and comfort are our top priorities, and we do what it takes to help every patient understand their symptoms and treatment options in a relaxed office setting,” commented Dr. Paradise.
