Ben Gardner, RDH
Ben is unique as a hygienist. He has a pre-med background and nearly eight years of heavy bio-science studies, but he truly has a passion for what he does. He feels that health care must be about making the difference and not simply a career. Because of this conviction, he takes time to explain and answer questions far beyond what is commonly found in a world that increasingly emphasizes rush and hustle over true care. Although he has a varied list of interests, he has a particular love for the beauty of North Idaho. Ben enjoys spending time with his family and finding new places to photograph and explore with them.
Samantha, Dental Assistant
Samantha enjoys being a Dental Assistant for the variety. Not one mouth is identical to another! Samantha believes that working with people is a fulfilling experience and she loves to make every patient happy. She knows being at the dentist can be unsettling so she takes pride in making patients feel at ease. She graduated in 2011 from UEI located in Southern California before moving to North Idaho in 2016. When she's not working she enjoys cooking and spending time with her boyfriend.
