Dr. Benjamin was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and moved to Florida with his family at a young age. In 2007 he attended the University of Florida for dental school. After graduation, he joined a private practice and served as clinical instructor in the oral surgery department. His pursuit to further advance his knowledge and skill set led him to complete a 2-year Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency at the Audie L. Murphy Veterans Hospital in San Antonio. It was there that he received training in a broad scope of procedures including cosmetic dentistry, full mouth reconstruction, Endodontics, periodontics, implant placement/restoration, orthodontics and IV sedation. Following his residency, he worked at the Veterans hospital serving patients’ dental needs and teaching advanced dental procedures in the residency program.
As a third-generation dentist, Dr. Benjamin has always appreciated all disciplines of dentistry. The gratification he receives from taking patients out of pain along with his detail-oriented nature led him to pursue his passion for Endodontics.
Dr. Benjamin married his high school sweetheart, Laura, who is also a dentist. Together they enjoy spending time with their two children Eli and Sloan. Other interests include exploring different cultures through traveling and cooking, running with his dog, hiking, and surfing.
