About Your Dentist
Dr. Ben was born in Edina, Minnesota. Growing up, his dad worked in academics for athletes for Division 1A universities, which moved them around the country. They eventually landed at Florida State in Tallahassee during his high school years where he met his wife, Shannon, and married after college. Not long after they were wed, he was accepted to Louisiana State University School of Dentistry and graduated in 2007 working in private practice since.
He and his family decided they wanted to live near the beaches, which ultimately drew them to the area. They have three, wonderful children, Jack, Paige and Barrett and enjoy spending time with them, traveling and spending time outdoors at the beach, boating, paddleboarding, biking, kayaking and snow skiing in the winter months.
He got into to dentistry because it enabled him to use creativity and artistic skills with science, engineering and problem-solving. He also cares deeply about helping others and making an impact in other’s lives. His vision is to serve his patients with humility and to provide the highest-quality care and respect that he would desire from a healthcare or service provider.
