What Our Patients Say About Us
My family and I have gone to Dr. Bender for years.
“The entire staff is fantastic, they make the whole experience stress free. Scheduling is simple and accurate (after going to doctors whose staff don’t seem to understand that my time is important too, this is the highest praise I can give – Dr. Bender and his staff run on time and estimate how long something will take accurately). I never feel rushed through the office, but I don’t feel like I ever wait either.
But aside from the amazing staff running his office, Dr. Bender himself is wonderful. He takes the time with every patient to make sure everything is done correctly. And as I don’t like Novocain he’s willing to try without it (and patient enough to use it I if I change my mind). I’ve recommended Dr. Bender to friends and relatives.”
My family has been going here since I was a child.
“Very friendly, very clean facility, and never any complaints. I just got a cleaning by PEGGY who was extremely courteous and professional!”
He and his staff are top notch!
“Been going to Dr. Bender for years. I have no reason to even consider another dentist as long as he is in practice. Highly recommended!”
Extremely professional staff!
“Very informative and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Dr. Bender’s office for any and all dental hygiene concerns! Ben is an extremely friendly member of his staff and enlightened me the entire time I was getting my cleaning. Great experience!”
I have been going to Dr. Bender for a little over a year now and I could not be happier.
“His staff is always welcoming and Dr. Bender truly cares about his patients. I originally went in with a cracked tooth and some very old fillings that needed to be replaced and I now go for my 6 monthly cleanings and preventative care. Brandy is one of the dental hygienists and she is great. She makes a somewhat unenjoyable experience much more tolerable! She is so personable and always makes me feel comfortable. My husband is now going to Dr. Bender and our kids will soon be seeing him as well.”
Dr. Bender has been my dentist for over 25 years.
“He does a great job and I trust him completely. My family will continue to go to Dr Bender.”
Dr Bender is excellent!
“He always makes me feel comfortable when I need to have work done any the hygienists are both great too!!! They get me in and out in a reasonable time and work with me to get appoint times that are convenient for me.”
I actually enjoy going to the dentist.
“Dr. Bender and his staff make me feel at home. The attention to detail given to cleaning teeth, as well as, complex dental work are second to none. I moved out of the area several years ago and still travel over an hour for my dental appointments. Love having a healthy mouth!”
Just had my teeth cleaned and I honestly have to say I love this place!!
“They are very good in explaining everything in detailed!!! The staff here is amazing!!! Definitely coming back!!!”

Pediatric dentists are dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years. They have the experience and qualifications to care for a child’s teeth, gums, and mouth throughout the various stages of childhood. Children are not just small adults. They are not always able to be patient and cooperative during a dental exam. Pediatric dentists know how to examine and treat children.
