Dr. David Bennett
Dr. David Bennett received his doctoral degree from the prestigious State University of New York at Buffalo. He currently is serving as a captain in the United States Army Reserves where he provides dental services to those brave men and women that serve our country. Serving a church mission to Honduras allowed him to learn Spanish which he often uses to communicate comfortably with patients requesting it.
He is also inspiring the next generation of future dentists. For the past 8 years he has been a guest lecturer in the Preview to Dentistry courses at Brigham Young University. Continuing Education and staying informed about the latest developments in dentistry is essential to Dr. Dave. He will oftentimes will do 400% more courses each year than what is required by the State of Utah. This also allows him to provide his patients the best, most up-to-date care possible.
He has attended courses on cosmetic dentistry, surgical implants, root canal therapy, and dentures, among other subjects. He is trained in advanced cardiac life support and oral conscious sedation allowing him to safely provide this for the patients at Advanced Dental Care. He is now most passionate about being able to provide new smiles, oftentimes without having to remove any sensitive tooth structure through Lumineers (Ultra-thin veneers) and Snap-on-Smile. Dr. Dave is quoted saying,"To me being a dentist is not about the teeth but about the person. My patients really do become my family and their care and comfort is my top priority."
Outside the office Dr. Bennett enjoys spending time with wife Alison and is the proud father of 5 beautiful children. He is an avid golfer and has been to many of the major golf courses in America.
