Dr. Benassi’s passion for dentistry flourished from a young age, growing up with a dentist for a father. It wasn’t until he volunteered to go on a dental mission trip as a teenager that he realized this was his chosen path in life.
Seeing firsthand just how much of an impact dentistry can make on others’ lives and well-being, Dr. Benassi knew this was the type of meaningful work he wanted to get involved in. As a family man and someone who’s always been drawn toward children, he acted as a camp counselor while serving as a general dentist for many years.
Being surrounded by children and putting smiles on their little faces made him realize he wanted to earn a specialization in pediatric dentistry. Many years later, here he is, with his own pediatric dental practice, where kids can come to a judgment-free zone and feel comfortable that they’re going to receive high-quality care from someone they can trust. If you’re looking for a Board Certified pediatric dentist in the Verona area, contact us today to schedule an dentistry appointment for your child.
At Campfire Pediatric Dentistry, we want our Verona patients to feel relaxed, comfortable, and at home when they come to our office. That’s why we’ve taken the time to put a lot of love into our office atmosphere and amenities.
We’ve named ourselves after a campfire because we want to recreate the connection and warmth that a campfire represents. Your little one will enjoy our relaxing office which is filled with natural light and plants.
We have a child’s play area, where your child can play with toys and video games, or they can watch their favorite shows. All of our treatment rooms have TVs so your child can watch Disney+ or Netflix during their appointment. We also provide noise-canceling headphones if your child has sensory issues or would prefer to listen to some music to relax.
Cleanings & Exams - Your child’s oral health is so important because their teeth help them chew, speak, and smile. Without the health of their gum tissues and teeth, they could need invasive and costly treatment or even lose their teeth, which causes serious consequences.
By attending regular cleanings and exams, we can catch warning signs of tooth decay and gum disease early on and we can ward off cavities by routinely removing plaque and tartar buildup. We offer many preventive treatments to promote oral health reduce your child’s risk for cavities, including fluoride treatments and dental sealants.
Restorative Dentistry - As a pediatric dentist, Dr. Benassi is specially trained in the best dental techniques to treat your little one’s teeth. Children’s teeth are structured differently than adult teeth and shouldn’t be treated the same way.
Only at a pediatric dental office will you find treatments like space maintainers, pulpotomies, frenectomies, and pediatric crowns. These restorative treatments will prevent complications of tooth decay, tooth loss, and tongue and lip ties so that we can get your child’s oral health on the right track.
Sedation Dentistry - If your child has dental anxiety, we provide several forms of sedation to help them feel relaxed and at ease during their appointment. Sedation offers the added benefit of reducing pain sensation, reducing sensitive gag reflexes, reducing restlessness, improving cooperation, and helping your child sit for longer appointments.
