Dr. Benjamin A. Baptist D.D.S.

I believe in delivering the highest level of care, quality, and consideration to all of my patients.  My goal is to meet your expectations and to be your partner in your dental health.  I will take the time to give you a complete evaluation, inform you of your treatment needs, and provide you with the information you need to make a decision in your treatment.

In order to meet these goals, I have completed hundreds of hours of continuing education beyond my initial dental training.  My areas of focus in implant dentistry, removable prosthetics, and cosmetic dentistry have been of particular interest to me, as I have seen a growing need for these services for my patients.  I also have extensive experience in treating children and enjoy working with the whole family.

While not treating patients in the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Diana, and our two dogs.  My hobbies include carpentry, auto mechanics, photography, and travel.
