Where did it all begin?
Well, with Dr. Patricia Benca of course!
Dr. Patricia Benca began her dental career by receiving her D.D.S. from Northwestern University Dental School in 1982 followed by a Master’s of Science degree in Oral Pathology Fellowship at the University of Chicago. While in Chicago, she continued as an Assistant Professor and Director of Radiology at Loyola University Dental School.
Shorty after relocating to Washington, she became the Director of General Dentistry at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. She also served as a lecturer at the University of Washington Hospital dental program and continually updates her education in advanced dentistry at the Premier Study Group and The Kois Center in Seattle. With such an impressive background, she shares her love of dentistry with her patients by staying upbeat and passionate. They are continuously commenting about Dr. Benca’s fun yet professional bedside manner.
Professional memberships include:
- Academy of General Dentistry,
- Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry,
- American Dental Association,
- King County Dental Society.
And there’s more!
Dr. Benca is not only a Board Member of The World Health Dental Organization but she travels routinely to Kenya, Africa to provide dentistry (pro bono) to the Maasai people. She consistently strives to give back and bring her dedication to dentistry to others. Overall, it’s these values and Dr. Benca’s commitment which prompted her peers to vote her consistently as one of Seattle’s Top Dentists in Seattle Metropolitan Magazine (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015). She not only gives to others, but is a hardworking, dedicated professional who truly loves what she does! This is by what her patients and peers say about her and her practice of family dentistry.
