Benjamin A Baptist, DDS – Implant Dentist in Chicago, IL 60655
At University of llinois my clinical training integrated all forms of dentistry including pediatrics, advanced restorative procedures and dental implant therapy. I was a teaching assistant for both the Pediatric Dentistry Course and the Implant Dentistry Course. I continue to be involved with Dental Education, having taught at the University of Illinois as a clinical instructor before moving over to Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine as a clinical instructor.
I combined my love of traveling and cultures with expanded clinical experiences. Selected for an externship with the Indian Health Service, I traveled to the North Slope of Alaska and provided dental care to native Alaskans. One of the most memorable experiences was becoming a certified member of the Polar Bear Club.
My wife Diana, daughter Alexandra, son David and I enjoy traveling, dancing, and playing with our two dogs. My hobbies also include carpentry, photography, and auto mechanics. Working with my father David and brother Brian has been a long-time goal. I look forward to helping the people who trust their care to Baptist Family Dental achieve their goals of optimal dental health and aesthetics.
