Hello and welcome to Dallas Orthodontics! Dr. Benitez is a native North Texan and attended Texas Christian University where he earned his Bachelor of Science in Biology. He graduated from TCU summa cum laude and is a proud alumnus. After TCU, Dr. Benitez went to Baylor College of Dentistry (now a part of TAMU's Health Science Center) and graduated in the top 10 of his class. After practicing as a family dentist for 2 years, Dr. Benitez received his certificate in orthodontics and his Master of Science in Dentistry at the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine.
After graduation from Colorado, Dr. Benitez joined Dr. Greg Greenberg's Lake Highlands and Frisco practices. He worked alongside Dr. Greenberg for 3 years and purchased Dr. Greenberg's Dallas practice. He is now proud to be owner of Dallas Orthodontics and is looking forward to serving Dallas and the surrounding cities for many years to come.
Dr. Benitez views his practice as an extension of his own family and is committed to providing personable, quality care. Dr. Benitez’s treatment philosophy integrates state-of-the-art technology with evidence-based scientific knowledge. He is dedicated to serving his patients with a hard-work ethic, commitment to excellence, and passion for being an integral part of the community.
Dr. Benitez and his wife, Avery, are proud residents of the Lake Highlands community in Dallas. They live with their daughter, Caroline, and their son, Philip. They also have a cat named Holly who reminds them every day just how good life is for cats. They are both members of Northwest Bible Church and involved with Children's Ministry. In his spare time, Dr. Benitez enjoys working out (don't be shy if you see him at the LA Fitness in Lake Highlands), watching sports, skiing, and spending time with family and friends.
