Dr. Betham and his staff at smart choice are the most amazing, wonderful caring people I have ever had the pleasure to meet. I came to the office in desperate need. My face was swollen and my mouth was in so much pain. I was so nervous and embarrassed by the state of my mouth. Fear from previous past experiences and cost always kept me away from any dentist. But the day I found Dr. Bentham that all changed. I’m sure I was shaking I was so nervous, upon arrival. All the staff set me at ease, never making me feel ashamed or embarrassed of how bad my mouth actually was because it was extremely bad I know. The first visit he was able to extract a tooth that needed gone and we discussed other work needed and the costs that would come with that. Which was just to much no matter how bad I needed the work. Then the most wonderful amazing thing happened. Dr. Bentham and his staff saw that I couldn’t afford to get the dental work done and made a decision to help me regardless. I was so excited, happy, shocked, you name it I was speechless. I now have my confidence back, I’m not hiding my smile in fact I think my face hurts from smiling too much!!!! Dr. Bentham and his staff are angels plain and simple! I will never be able to thank them enough for what they have done for me. hands down the most caring and one hell of a good dentist!! I can’t say enough good things about everyone in this office!!
My inherent fear of dentists as a kid quickly diminished when my mother took me to our new dentist Dr. Bentham, in 1969. He was just starting out, and quickly gained my confidence. It was always obvious he took his tasks at hand dead seriously, and cared for the comfort of his patient, even calling at end of day to make sure everything felt good. I’ve continued as his patient for my whole life, always appreciating his professionalism, and his drive to obtain perfect results. I have a mouthful of healthy teeth, which I attribute to his skill to do things right! His staff always more than welcoming.
My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Bentham for over 30 years. In all that time we have found his work to be exceptional on all levels. In short, he is an outstanding dentist. Not only is Dr. Bentham able to offer his patients a wide variety of dental procedures which he performs with great skill and efficiency, he and his staff have regularly attended conferences and training to keep current on the latest dental innovations. The office itself is always meticulously organized and sterilized. It was no surprise to us that during the COVID-19 crisis, he surpassed all safety precautions and purchased extra equipment to keep his staff and patients feeling reassured and safe. His staff is outstanding in their professionalism, courtesy and friendliness. For thirty years, we have both observed Dr. Bentham’s interest and dedication and never-waning passion for his chosen profession.
