We’ve always been dedicated to helping patients get the quality dental care they need to maintain healthy smiles.

General dentistry focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of oral health issues. It’s important that you see our general dentists every 6 months so we can monitor the health of your teeth, gums, and jaw.
Our dentists understand that lifestyle choices and family history affect oral health. For example, our dentists do frequent oral cancer screenings for someone who smokes. Likewise, we closely monitor jawbone tissue after tooth loss. Our dentists understand that oral health and overall health are connected.

Meet Your Doctor
I love that dentistry perfectly balances service & helping patients achieve stable oral and overall health.
Me At A Glance:
He was born and raised in Traverse City, MI and received an undergraduate degree in neuroscience from the University of Michigan. Dr. Ben continued his education in dentistry by attending and graduating from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry.
We asked Dr. Ben a few questions so you can get to know him a little better!
“Dentistry has a perfect balance between service and getting patients to not only stable oral health but also systemic health. Educating patients on oral and systemic health is a key aspect of dentistry that I enjoy.”
“Getting to know and understand them as people as well as work with them to solve issues to create a better quality of life!”
“I am going to have to go with either Root Canals or Crowns!”
“Lord of the Rings (series), Blade Runner (original), Star Wars (4-6)”
“Alt-J, Foo Fighters and Seven Lions.”
“Either read a book or watch a good TV show.”
I am a learner at heart and am always looking for ways to improve my craft to provide the best dental care I can for the patients I love!

“Since I can remember I have always loved the sciences and understanding how/why things work. I also have a passion for working with my hands and the dental field allowed me to do just that!”
“I am a member of the American Dental Association, Michigan Dental Association, and the Chicago Dental Society.”
“I am passionate about continual education and keeping up with the trends in dentistry. I am a learner at heart and am always looking for ways to improve my craft to provide the best dental care I can for the patients I love!”
“If I am not in the office you can find me in one of two places… first being on the golf course. There is nothing like getting out in the sun and playing a round or two! The second place you can find me would be in the kitchen. I often find myself researching new recipes to try and to improve my cooking. If I am not on the links or the kitchen, you will probably find me outside exploring all that West Michigan has to offer!”
