Dr. Young's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Young "Dr. Benjamin Young first started practicing periodontics in 1988 while serving in the U.S. Air Force and began private practice in San Antonio in 1997. He is driven by the philosophy of providing his patients the best in minimally invasive periodontal treatment, using the most advanced technology in a caring and friendly environment. He is also an accomplished educator and trainer for fellow practitioners. Dr. Young ensures his patients receive the highest standard of care by keeping abreast of technical developments through extensive continuing education. “If there are better ways to treat patients, then I want to find out about them and put them to use,” he says. On this basis he has implemented advanced laser gum disease treatment, 3D imaging and computer-guided implant placement as major elements of his treatment procedures. These state-of-the-art advancements make his gum disease and implant treatments minimally invasive and thus more comfortable for patients."

Patient Testimonials

This content was provided by Dr. Young "Dr. Benjamin and his staff are always extremely kind and are always willing to spend time to explain everything very thoroughly. Dr. Benjamin is always readily available to answer questions or help at any time."

"Dr. Young takes his time, pin-points the diagnoses and prescribes a step-by-step plan that he explains fully to the patient. He is a periodontist that I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Young is unique in that he uses a laser surgically as the patient undergoes the treatment. This is less invasive and the normal pain that one would experience is minimal, if not nonexistent."

"Dr. Young took the time to explain everything. Nothing felt rushed. I always had healthy teeth with no cavities and did not understand periodontal issues. I needed an education which he was happy to provide in terms I could understand."

Care Philosophy

"Dr. Young is known for his kind and friendly approach to patients. Patients remark how he takes the time to thoroughly educate them on his findings and their treatment options, so they are well-informed and can feel at ease. He is also frequently complimented for his steady hand and gentle chairside manner.

“I am humbled when I think people give me permission to work inside their mouths,” he says, “and I hope I am able to do it in ways that enable them to overcome their fears and obtain the things they wish to have.”"

I was told prior to Dr. Young, i had no choice except extraction. Dr. Young listen to my concern, and was able to control the infection and 6 months later, no extractions needed. I'm back to great oral health and has explained a better care for my teeth. Thank you
