Care Philosophy

I believe in providing each of my patients with the highest level of quality care. I strive to create a personalized experience by helping my patients to feel comfortable, confident, and informed. I want every patient to know that I will provide them with the same level of care and compassion as I would a member of my own family.

Biography

Dr. Benson is originally from Montana but moved to South Dakota in 1972 when his father opened Benson Dental. As a child, he used to visit his father at his dental office and enjoyed helping with X-rays in the developing room. Growing up around a dental office spurred his interest in dentistry and inspired him to pursue a dental career. It was an easy decision to return to the family practice after finishing school. The atmosphere at the office is extremely welcoming and family-oriented, and Dr. Benson loves working in such a tight-knit practice and community. He finds it incredibly rewarding to work in a field that allows him to provide patients with high-quality care and the best results. Hearing recognition from his patients after they visit the office affirms that he chose the right career.

I have been a patient of Dr. Bruce for years! I love his chair side manner and the staff he has are AMAZING ! They have no turn over and has had the same girls working for him for years! He does excellent dental work. Everyone makes you feel so comfortable. His new office remodel looks stunning. Thank you for always being so good to me.

He's been good since I started seeing him in 2001; this past year however, I needed 3 fillings completed in Sept 2015. Today they called to move my appt again but this time it's due to a remodel of office. I viewed them as family as always treated very well. But it's May 2016 & I still can't get the fillings done. I think he forgot his manners that he's always showed. I was fine moving them due to family illness, but because you need an office update?? Who got you to this point? Your client

Dr. Benson says...

Dr. Benson attended Mancado State University — now called Minnesota State University Mancado — for his undergraduate degree. After earning a Bachelor of Science in biology in 1984, he initially joined the Marine Corps to become an aviator. However, he decided he was more interested in dental school, so he chose to attend Washington University School of Dental Medicine in St. Louis. In 1989, he completed his Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry (DMD) degree and went on to train in a residency program in Denver. After completing his training, he chose to move home to South Dakota to join his father's practice. After working together for almost 20 years, Dr. Benson's father retired, and he took over the family practice.
