Comprehensive Grand Junction Dental Clinic Adds Dentist

GRAND JUNCTION, CO--(Marketwired - September 30, 2014) - Dr. Eric Benefield, who offers Grand Junction dental cosmetics, preventive care and endodontics, recently hired a second dentist at his growing dental practice and added Friday and Saturday office hours.

Dr. Jonathan Benefield, Dr. Eric Benefield's brother, has joined the practice, allowing the office to open its doors on the weekend while continuing to focus on emergency and comprehensive dental care. Dr. Jonathan Benefield is a 2013 graduate of the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry and began working at the clinic Aug. 21.

"Adding my brother, Dr. Jonathan Benefield, allows our clinic to expand its high-level of oral care to more patients," said Dr. Eric Benefield, who provides Grand Junction with one day dental implants.

Grand Dental is a comprehensive dental clinic that offers periodontal therapy, crowns and bridges, dental implant placement and restoration, fillings, extractions, wisdom teeth extractions, root canals, periodontal surgeries, cosmetic dentistry, sedation dentistry, professional teeth whitening, full-mouth reconstructions, Diagnodent, Invisalign, dentures and bone grafts. The clinic also provides safe amalgam removal and CEREC, a same-day porcelain restoration treatment.

By adding Friday and Saturday hours, both 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Grand Dental is now open six days a week. The change has increased appointment options for working families unable to take off work for their dental checkups or procedures.

"You rarely find dental offices with weekend hours in the Grand Junction area, but we see it as an additional service for the community, especially for our hard-working families with minimal free time on the weekdays," Dr. Eric Benefield said.

The comfortable Grand Junction office features electronic patient chairs, a soft-tissue laser, digital pano, intraoral cameras and electric handpieces.

Dr. Eric Benefield is a Grand Junction native who attended Scenic Elementary, Orchard Mesa Middle School and Fruita Monument High School. He completed his undergraduate studies at Utah Valley University and then graduated valedictorian in 2003 at University of the Pacific School of Dentistry, receiving the Garrett M. Guess Valedictorian Award and then the Alpha Omega Award for highest overall grade-point average. He also received the Herbert K. Yee Award and M. Roscoe Mcdowell Award for academic achievement and was member of the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society, Tao Kappa Omega Honor Society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honor Society.

After graduating dental school, Dr. Eric Benefield served as a dentist in the U.S. Army for three years at Fort Polk, La. The service gave him experience in dental surgeries such as root canals and he was able to train with oral surgeons, periodontists and endodontists. After the military, Dr. Eric Benefield owned a dental office in Phoenix, Az., for several years. For the past 10 years, he has taken continuing education courses in order to expand his services in areas such as sedation dentistry, dentures, mini dental implants, dental implants, cosmetic dental work and Invisalign.

In addition to his dental service, Dr. Eric Benefield believes in supporting his community, which is why the practice gives 5 percent of it profits to the Grand Junction school district, School District 51, and sponsors the community through the local Rotary Club.
