Meet Our Newest General Dentist, Dr. Ben-Ezra!
Quince Orchard Dental Care has added a new member to their team, and she has done nothing but add to the excellence that our practice already is. This charismatic and detail-oriented dentist is none other than Dr. Samantha Ben-Ezra. Samantha contributes her compassionate touch when dealing with each patient. If you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting her yet, take a look at this article and get to know her.
As a young girl in middle school, Dr. Ben-Ezra was determined to avoid working a desk job knowing it would limit her opportunities to utilize her hands and artistic skills. She attributes her career choice to her father, who is a chiropractor and manages his own chiropractic practice. She reminisced about seeing her dad’s patients gravitate to his warmth and kindness, while feeling comfortable enough to execute chiropractic procedures. This was something Dr. Ben-Ezra always aspired to achieve with her patients when she became a dentist. She is always eager to help people, regardless of their age and couldn’t pass up the opportunity to interact with people every day.
Dr. Ben-Ezra’s dental journey began at Penn State University where she gained her Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. She jumped directly into dental school at Rutgers School of Dental Medicine in Newark, New Jersey. She continued diligently into a one-year residency at Hackensack Meridian Jersey Shore University Medical Center - Neptune, New Jersey. During her academic exploits, she participated in extracurricular programs and gained leadership experience, certifications and awards.
Moving from New Jersey to Maryland and being away from family has many downsides but locating new restaurants and exploring new sites keeps her occupied. She enjoys a good sweat during her workout sessions when she is not rendering her services to her patients. You can also find Dr. Ben-Ezra hunting for new recipes to introduce to her family’s taste buds while entertaining them for an evening of fun. Dr. Ben-Ezra even created a recipe catalog of all the scrumptious meals she has ever made. As far as values and principles go, Dr. Ben-Ezra is compassionate and is always thrilled to meet new people with her outgoing personality.
Dr. Ben-Ezra knew she made the right choice by choosing Quince Orchard Dental Care. It was refreshing to know that her values of being patient-centric aligned perfectly with ours. We are excited to have her as part of our dental team and look forward to all the wonderful things ahead. The next time you visit our practice, be sure to say hello to Dr. Ben-Ezra.
