Biography

Dr. Benjamin Walline was inspired to pursue a dental career by his father, who was a dentist, and his mother, who suggested he follow in his father's footsteps. It was easy for Dr. Walline to choose oral and maxillofacial surgery once he attended dental school because he was attracted to all aspects of the specialty, including corrective jaw surgery and wisdom teeth removal. After working with Dr. Kupferman at Kaiser, he decided to switch to private practice because he liked the idea of being able to perform both office-based and hospital-based procedures. Dr. Walline's favorite thing about being an oral surgeon is the effect he can have on patients' lives. More specifically, he loves how much he can help jaw patients who may not feel comfortable with their appearance. He can get to know patients and pay careful attention to their goals and then provide them with optimal results, giving them a reason to smile and feel more confident in themselves.
