A Legacy of Creating

Beautiful Smiles

Helping people love their smile
for more than 50 years

Your smile. An outward expression of your inner self.

We all yearn to have a smile we can feel good about. Even before your first baby teeth pushed their way into your gums, your smile has captivated others and expressed who you are at your most engaging moments. Life, with all its unpredictable events, can get in the way and leave us feeling self conscious about our smile. Working toward giving you a smile you can be proud of is what Dr. Ronald Bentham has been passionate about for more than 50 years.

Outstanding professionalism and friendliness

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Bentham for over 30 years. In all that time we have found his work to be exceptional on all levels. He is an outstanding dentist. Not only is Dr. Bentham able to offer a wide variety of dental procedures, which he performs with great skill and efficiency, he and his staff regularly train to keep current on the latest dental innovations. The office is meticulously organized and sterilized. It was no surprise to us that during the COVID-19 crisis, he surpassed all safety precautions and purchased extra equipment to keep his staff and patients feeling reassured and safe. His staff is outstanding in their professionalism, courtesy and friendliness.
