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.
Hi, my name is Mercedes, and I am an orthodontic assistant at Dallas Orthodontics. Since I joined the team in 2012, I have learned so much, and I owe it all to Dr. Benitez. He is a fantastic orthodontist and an even better person. I really enjoy talking with patients and bringing confidence to their lives with a beautiful smile. I have two wonderful children and a loving husband. We enjoy spending time with our family and friends.
Welcome! I’m Ashley, I am responsible for understanding your orthodontic concerns and conveying them to Dr. Benitez, explaining financial options for treatment, and assisting patients and parents with any treatment questions. I love talking to our patients and hearing their stories. Seeing their progress while in treatment is amazing! Dr. Benitez is a delight to work with. He is a laid-back, fun person. I don’t think any of us could have asked for a better doctor.
I love my family. My husband and I are high school sweethearts and are 10+ years strong. I have two beautiful children who are my world. I love baseball, having cute nails, shopping, crafting, and going to the beach.
