Meet Dentist Benjamin Grooters, DDS

A Q&A with your neighborly Doctor of Dental Surgery.


For the first 10 years of Dr. Benjamin Grooters’ profession, he focused on learning to treat patients, perfecting his dental procedures and acquiring the skills of owning a business.

His years of investing time, knowledge and quality have paid off in the form of his very own practice.

He recently purchased the practice of Dr. Stephen Myers, who retired after 37 years of dentistry.

Now, Grooters aspires to grow the practice to serve more patients in the area and surrounding communities, expand the services offered and provide dental care to underserved populations. 

1. What services do you provide?

We are a comprehensive dental office providing preventative and restorative procedures, including regular and periodontal cleanings, fillings, crowns, bridges, implant restorations, root canals, surgical extractions and cosmetic dental services.

We also have scheduled times to see same-day dental emergencies.

We are a family practice and accept most dental insurance plans. 

2. How, when and why did you get into this profession?

After having some fairly extensive dental treatment myself for a tooth I knocked out as a teen, it sparked my interest in the dental profession.

I spent time observing dentists work, and they all seemed to love their job.

I had parents in the medical field, and I knew I enjoyed health care, science and helping others.

I love that I get to help patients relieve pain and gain confidence after giving them a healthier smile.

I enjoy the business side of owning my own practice.

This field allows me to provide a great service to my patients and an opportunity to manage a business.

3. What sets your business apart? 

I know that many people don’t like coming to the dentist.

I want to provide each patient with the highest quality dental care at the most affordable price I can provide.

I want them to be comfortable in my chair and know that I aim to take care of them, like they are family. I hope everyone leaves my office saying that was the best dental visit they’ve ever had.

4. What impact do you hope to make on the community?

In addition to providing quality dental care, I want to be involved in the community.

I want people to know who I am personally. I love the entrepreneur aspect of dentistry, so I would love to be involved in the big picture ideas that help bolster and draw people to our community.

I want to provide opportunities for the underserved to get quality, free dental care and I want to help others in regions outside of our community by doing mission trips to countries where dental services are needed.
