As a boy scout, Dr. Smith earned his dentistry merit badge thanks to an influential leader; that is when he knew he wanted to be a dentist.
He earned a degree in medical biology from the University of Utah and attended the University of Louisville for dental school. Since then, he has earned a moderate sedation permit for class three anesthesia. He was also certified for wisdom tooth removal through Western Surgical & Sedation. He is a current faculty member there and does wisdom tooth extractions on Thursdays and Fridays with The Wisdom Teeth Guys. He is also a member of the Academy of General Dentistry and the American Dental Association®.
Dr. Smith sees dentistry as both a hobby and a profession. He especially loves transforming smiles to give patients the confidence to smile. His patients know him to be caring; in particular, he sees many patients who have severe dental anxiety and helps them to feel at ease.
Dr. Smith is married and has four children and a Golden Retriever. His family loves bowling, going to the movies, and watching soccer games and dance recitals.
Dr. Chase Benson grew up in Temecula, California, and he has always been drawn to the medical field because he looked up to his grandfather who was a family doctor.
Dr. Benson did his undergraduate work in biology at BYU, then graduated from the Roseman University School of Dentistry. He is qualified for implant placement and root canal therapy, along with general dentistry. He loves helping patients have a more laid-back dental experience.
Dr. Benson loves family time. In his spare time, he likes to be with his wife outdoors fishing, hiking or snowboarding.
