About ABC Dental's Pediatric Dentist in Independence, MO

Dr WIlson

Benjamin G. Wilson, DDS

Dr. Benjamin Wilson is a general dentist whose career has been marked by a genuine passion for providing top-notch dental care, with a special focus on children’s dental health. Born and raised in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Dr. Ben’s journey in dentistry began at Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio.

In 2003, Dr. Ben graduated with his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree and, alongside his high school sweetheart, Michelle, moved back to the breathtaking landscapes of Colorado. For eight fulfilling years, he dedicated himself to serving as a family dentist in the charming town of Montrose, Colorado. During this time, he discovered a unique love for working with children and addressing the specific dental needs of those precious little smiles.

Dr. Wilson’s love for treating children led him to embark on a fascinating journey. He decided to open multiple dental practices, all with a clear and unwavering focus on providing care to children in Missouri and Kansas. These practices soon became known for their warm, child-friendly environments and the exceptional level of care they offered to young patients and their families.

Ben and Michelle’s love story, which began over three decades ago in their picturesque mountain hometown, has brought six amazing children and remains as strong as ever. Their hearts are firmly rooted in the Rockies, and they share a love for activities like snow skiing and boating, which they enjoy whenever they can steal a moment away from their busy lives.

Dr. Ben’s dental career has not only been professionally rewarding but has also brought an incredible amount of joy into his life. Over the years, he has had the privilege of meeting countless amazing individuals and families, all while residing in the welcoming Midwest. He cherishes the opportunity to contribute to the wellbeing of the community by caring for the precious little smiles that have crossed his path. It has always been important to Dr. Wilson to bring a blend of skill, compassion and dedication to his profession.
