Dr. Bemis & Staff
Meet Dr. Bemis and his experienced and friendly staff who make Bemis Family Dental the leading provider of oral hygiene and personalized dental services in Fort Worth.
Dr. Nathaniel Bemis
Dr. Nathaniel Bemis grew up in the rainy weather of the Pacific Northwest. He has been enjoying sunny skies in Fort Worth since 2011. He attended Brigham Young University, graduating in 2007 and attended Oregon Health Sciences University Dental School, graduating in 2011. He has been practicing in Fort Worth and Hurst since moving to Texas and is excited to be part of the Lake Worth community.
Dr. Bemis is proficient in cosmetics, restorative, implant, and removable appliances, as well as oral surgery and endodontic procedures. He also is an orthodontic provider for Clear Correct, an invisible aligner alternative to traditional braces.
Dr. Bemis purchased Dr. Dwayne Beeler’s practice in April of 2018. Dr. Beeler had decided to retire and spend more time with family, especially his grandchildren. After interviewing multiple dentists, Dr. Beeler selected Dr. Bemis to be his successor and continue his tradition of excellent dental care for his patients in Lake Worth.
Dr. Bemis named the practice Bemis Family Dental with the intent of helping patients know his commitment to being part of the community. “Our dental office takes pride in spending the time to build trust with patients. We do that by spending time getting to know people, finding out their expectations, and helping them understand their oral health. Bemis Family Dental is a place where you are going to be treated by Dr. Bemis, and we are going to treat you the way that we treat our friends and family.”
Dr. Bemis and his wife Courtney met in 2006 and were married a little more than a year later. They live in the Lake Worth area with their three sons. “I love spending time with my family playing sports, watching Star Wars movies, grilling amazing food, swimming and hiking.” Dr. Bemis still enjoys trying to play basketball, volleyball, soccer, running, and weightlifting. He is a fan of the Brigham Young University Cougars sports teams, the Portland Trailblazers, and wishes success for the Dallas Cowboys and Mavericks. Dr. Bemis is also a huge Star Wars fan.
Jennifer Sellers, Registered Dental Assistant
Jennifer enjoys watching the transformation a patient goes through from not smiling at all, to not being able to stop smiling. She is caring and gentle with patients who are in pain or have a higher anxiety level when coming to the dentist.
Jennifer has been part of the team since 1989. Jennifer attended ATI dental assisting school in 1987. Dr. Beeler was her dentist since she was a young child and was thrilled when she was able to begin working side by side with him. Now working with Dr. Bemis, she continues to help patients feel as comfortable as possible and making them feel at home. Jennifer has been married to her husband, Kenny, since 1984.
Kristen Mitchell, Dental Hygienist

She stays busy with kids’ soccer, gymnastics, and dance class. Kristen has been married to her husband, Joey, since 2004.
Sarah Hicks, Front Desk Specialist
Sarah has been in the dental field since 2009. Although she enjoys the clinical side, her true passion is for the administrative area of dentistry. She has devoted time to learning and improving her knowledge of dental insurance and how to help patients utilize their benefits. She truly believes that the success of the practice directly reflects the talent and culture of the team members as well as the doctor they have put their trust in. She believes in the care that Dr. Bemis provides his patients and feels blessed to be apart of such a great team!
Sarah joined our dental family in 2018. She was managing a larger practice in Plano, but was looking to relocate to Fort Worth. After meeting everyone she knew our office was exactly what she had been looking for. Along with her teenage daughter Alyssa she made the move to Fort Worth. When she is not conquering the art of raising a teen-aged girl, she enjoys watching movies, playing PC games, and going to Renaissance festivals with her boyfriend Sam.
