Dr. Benjamin Pham

PEDIATRIC DENTIST

Dr. Benjamin Pham or “Dr. Ben” enjoys seeing the kids with a smile on their face, even at the dentist! He hopes to provide an environment where the kid’s feel relaxed and safe. He understands that every child is different and will try to make them as comfortable as possible.

Dr. Ben is originally from the SF Bay, where he learned how to walk, read comic books and build robots. After the fun years he went on to obtain his BS in Human Biology from University of California, San Diego. It was there that his road in dentistry began – working as a student manager of a Free Dental Clinic for the underserved of San Diego. He completed his Dental Degree (DMD) in Bahston, coming down to thaw in Brooklyn while working as a Resident in a Trauma 1 center. (This is where he met Dr. Kristen) While working in the hospital he realized that the key to good oral health starts at a young age and wanted to focus on educating his patients about how Oral Health is just like all health – it starts with habits in childhood with the educated help of those who raise these children.

Albus

As a big kid at heart he completed his Pediatric Dentistry Residency at New York University, where the focus is on an educational training in preventative and restorative dentistry on children, adolescents and patients with special health needs. Finally he completed his two-step Board Certification with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Throughout Dr. Ben has made time to continue serving the underserved overseas through dental mission trips. Not only are these trips rewarding but Dr. Ben can also experience life abroad. He has enjoyed visiting Mexico, Honduras, Grenada and the South Pacific Islands and hopes to be able to work in other underserved countries in the future.

In his free time Dr. Ben likes to snuggle with his little pal, Albus! Or you can find him obsessing about golf, watching comic book movies, or going out to drive something fast.
