Dr. Benjamin is dedicated to the needs of her patients and delivers superior results by developing each treatment plan in detail, based on the unique oral health needs and treatment objectives of every patient. She also believes strongly in open communication, providing patients with information about their condition, care and treatment and answering every patient’s questions and concerns so they can feel confident and secure in their care and their results.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

There are many amazing and talented practitioners around the area; each with their own special and unique qualities. And just like those practitioners, I believe my office is one of these amazing practices who not only provides excellent dental care, but also tries to provide the best care for our patients. With each visit, my team and I work hard to make sure each and every patient has a great experience – starting from the minute they walk through our door to the minute they leave. In our office, we have written mission and vision statements that my team and I value and hold each other accountable for each day. We have always prided ourselves with providing each patient with the right amount of personal care, high technology and continuing education. What this means is that, not only am I learning new techniques and technologies to better my care for my patients, but so is my support staff. While also learning new technologies and advancements in dental care, I am also equipping the office with the best technologies and materials. I have a state-of-the-art facility that is not only safe but also comfortable for each of my patients and staff members. Lastly, it is the utmost importance to me to always inform and educate our patients so they can make informed decisions on their care and treatment.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

The top treatments that I have been focusing on lately are: cosmetic makeovers. Cosmetic makeovers include veneers, implants, ceramic crowns and bonding. Another treatment I am passionate about helping my patients with is sleep apnea or sleep related breathing disorders. I enjoy being able to work with each patient on a solution to not only help them understand why this is happening but also to find a better solution than just a CPAP machine. I am blessed to be able to be a practice that has the ability to screen out patients with a take home sleep test which then gets read by a sleep specialist physician. Being able to work with a sleep physician allows me to help properly diagnose and treat my patients who have sleep related breathing disorders.

What are you proud of in your practice?

In my practice, I am most proud of my amazing team. Each ‘tooth-fairy’ team member is incredibly smart, caring, and passionate about helping our patients as well as their role within our team. They are each hand selected to not only provide the best work but to also make sure that we all work well together. Most importantly, they are all a blast to work with.

    From beginning to end it was a wonderful experience. I brought my 4month old baby and everyone was taking care of her while I had to get my teeth cleaned, get x-rays, etc. I am so glad I found this place. All the staff where friendly and nice. Thank you all for the great experience :)

    The best dentist I've ever been to. They were attentive, helpful and kind. The office feels so luxurious while you wait, plus loads of free beverages! Friendly staff helped to explain everything to me in a way I understood. I returned a few days after my cleaning and received a filling I needed. They were quick with scheduling and were able to get me in for 2 appointments in a week.

    I had a wonderful experience at Marina Tooth Fairy! Sandy did an amazing job with my examination and cleaning. She was so gentle and careful, I felt no pain! Dr. Hibret Hailu Benjamin was also very thorough with going over all the findings from my exam. Would highly recommend this place to others!
