5015 Scotts Valley Dr Suite A, Scotts Valley, CA 95066 o (831) 440-9214
A family dentist for Scotts Valley, Santa Cruz and Los Gatos, Dr. Benedict has been practicing for more than 35 years.
Until the Second World War, dental students where I went to school used to spend the first two weeks of school at the foundry making their own dental instruments. My class came along a generation later so we didn't have to learn how to be blacksmiths in dental school but dentistry hadn't changed much for the previous 100 years. Happily, high technology and materials science at last have come to dentistry.
Dr. Benedict is a family dentist about to start her 36th year of
practice in the Silicon Valley area.
She is past President of the Monterey Bay Dental Society and graduated
from the UCSF School of Dentistry in 1977. Before she and her husband
their family, Dr. Benedict did volunteer
dentistry in Mexico with Los Amigos
and Flying Doctors.
Children frighten much more easily than adults. They are very aware of the words you choose (even if they don't always act like it when you ask them to do something!). We try to avoid words that scare children or that are associated with previous unpleasant experiences. You can help us by trying to use different words around the house other than those used to describe negative dental experiences.
