"I have never written a review for any place but I was so impressed with this dentists office.  I hadn't been to the dentist in about 10 years and needed some cavities filled on two front teeth.  Dr. Benke didn't need ex-rays which lowered the cost.  He opted to not use novocaine which surprised me and the drilling didn't hurt at all which also lowered the price.  He had a great sense of humor too.  I will definitely be going back if I need any future work done.  His staff was great also!"
