Introducing Dr.Benito Benitez, Orthodontist for Adults, Teens and Children
Hello all! I am a native North Texan and attended Texas Christian University where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Biology. I graduated from TCU Summa Cum Laude and am a proud alumnus. After TCU, I went to Baylor College of Dentistry and graduated in the Top 10 students of my class. After practicing as a family dentist for 2 years, I moved to Denver to pursue my passion for orthodontics. After a 30 month residency program, I received my certificate in orthodontics and my Master of Science in Dentistry at the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine.
I view my practice as an extension of my own family and am committed to providing personable and quality orthodontic care. My treatment philosophy integrates state-of-the-art technologies with evidence-based scientific knowledge. I am dedicated to serving my patients with a hard-work ethic, commitment to excellence, and a passion for being an integral part of the community.
My wife, Avery, and I are proud residents of the Lake Highlands community in Dallas. We have four children who keep us busy: Caroline, Philip, and twins Natalie and Afton. We are both members of Northwest Bible Church and involved with the Children’s Ministry. In my spare time, I enjoy working out (don’t be shy if you see me at the LA Fitness in Lake Highlands), watching sports, skiing, and spending time with family and friends.
Dr. Benitez is a member of many professional organizations including:
Greater Dallas Association of Orthodontists
American Association of Orthodontists
American Dental Association
Texas Dental Association
Dallas County Dental Society
Exchange Club Of Lake Highlands

I handle front office tasks, insurance and billing inquiries, and any other questions for our patients and referring doctors. At home I have two boys and a big puppy. We stay busy being involved with school, soccer, and gymnastics. When we have free time we like to read, watch movies, and travel.
Ashley is here to get you started on your journey to straight teeth, from discussing your specific treatment plan to explaining your insurance and financial contract. She is able to answer any questions you might have regarding your recommended treatment. Ashley has worked with Dr Benitez since 2013. She loves helping people find a way to make getting braces affordable and watching their confidence grow throughout their orthodontic treatment.
Away from the office, Ashley enjoys spending time with her husband, children and friends, as well as, traveling, being a dance and baseball mom, and crafting.
