Ben Hawkins, DMD

Dentistry is a very fun and rewarding profession. The opportunity to solve patients’ healthcare problems and establish friendships with them over the years is very rewarding. It is fun being in a dental practice with my father that has been around for more than 30 years, because it allows me to see patients who I have known for many years and have been important in my life.
