Dr. Chuck Bauer
Dr. Chuck Bauer is a Hastings native and life-long Nebraska resident. He is a graduate of The University of Nebraska at Lincoln and earned his Doctor of Dentistry from the University of Nebraska, College of Dentistry in 1977.
Following Dental College, he moved back to Hastings, purchased Dr. Loren Becks’ dental practice, and became partners with Dr. Robert Howard. Dr. Jeff Howard joined the practice in 1982 and together they established, “Howard, Bauer and Howard Dental Practice.”
Dr. Bauer has always been diligent in staying current with cutting-edge dental technology and procedures. In fact, Dr. Bauer is often the first dental professional in the state to introduce the most advanced dental technologies.
In the early 1990’s, he was one of the first dentists in Nebraska to computerize his office and also brought in Laser Dentistry, CAD CAM Crown and Bridge, minimal oral conscious sedation for anxious patients, and more recently, 3-D Cone-Beam X-rays, and digital full mouth scanning.

Over the course of his tenure as a dentist, Dr. Howard has served on various boards and committees in his church and within the Hastings community.
“Since the death of my father (Dr. Robert Howard), it has been a pleasure and inspiration working alongside an innovator like Dr. Bauer. Keeping pace with the ever-changing field of dentistry is challenging and exciting at the same time.”
