Meet Dr. Benjamin Scherr ("Dr. Ben")
Dr. Ben is known for his caring nature and light-hearted tone, which make even the most nervous patients comfortable. His love for dentistry started early. In elementary school he broke his front tooth ice skating; what could have been a traumatic experience turned out to be a great one. The care and treatment he received from his childhood dentist was so positive, he immediately knew that he wanted to become a dentist someday and give that same experience to others.
Today he has achieved that goal. Dr. Ben helps his patients in all areas of dentistry: from emergencies to prevention... from crowns and dentures to more complex forms of restorative care – all with a positive demeanor and kind nature. Dr. Ben is passionate about providing exceptional care to his patients and ensuring they have the same positive experience that sparked his love of dentistry many years ago.
Education and Experience
Dr. Ben has a love for learning! Anyone who knows him knows he is passionate about continuing his education and scope of knowledge, both professionally and personally. He is constantly learning and staying up to date on all of the latest techniques and technologies dentistry has to offer.
Dr. Ben earned his Bachelors of Science degree in Evolutionary Anthropology at the University of Michigan. He then went on to attend Tulane University where he earned his Masters Degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology. Rounding out his formal education, Dr. Ben attended University of Maryland School of Dentistry where he made his lifelong dream of becoming a dentist a reality.
While practicing in Washington, DC, Dr. Ben furthered his education with classes from the prestigious Spear Education Institute. In his quest to provide exceptional levels of dentistry, Dr. Ben was introduced to a course titled “Implementing the Comprehensive Exam” that was taught by none other than Dr. Mike and Dr. Dave.
When one of his mentors told him that Monokian Dentistry was looking for exceptional dentists to meet the needs of its ever-expanding patient base, Dr. Ben jumped at the opportunity! With no doubts in his mind, Dr. Ben moved to the NJ area to join a practice perfectly aligned with his philosophy of high-quality dental care and proving patients that truly exceptional experience Monokian Dentistry prides itself on.
