Dr. Ben grew up in Seattle while his Dad served in the Navy. Dr. Ben is a Brigham Young University - Idaho graduate and a graduate of The Ohio State University College of Dentistry. After serving as dental school Student Body Vice President and President, he served the rural community of southeastern Missouri for 5 years. These 5 years were formative in the way Dr. Ben practices dentistry. Serving a rural community allowed him to learn all aspects of advanced dentistry because of the lack of specialists nearby. Taking multiple advanced dental implant, oral surgery, endodontic, and periodontal CE courses, Dr. Ben has gained a comprehensive approach in treating patients.
With a beautiful wife, 5 bio daughters, and 1 foster daughter, life at home is never dull. Their family enjoys the outdoors, skiing, mountain biking, paddle boarding, cycling, running, basketball, rock climbing, etc. all together. Dr. Bassett still claims one of his joyful moments was seeing all their kids ski together without his or his wife's help. A task 12 years in the making!
Dr. Ben looks forward to making a lifelong dental relationship in caring for your and your family's dental needs.
