Benjamin Freed, DDS
Dr. Benjamin Freed is no stranger to Santa Monica - he was born and raised less than a mile from our office! He is thrilled to have the opportunity to now connect with and serve as a general dentist in the community he loves. His goal is to provide high quality and professional care while considering the needs of his patients.
Dr. Freed holds a bachelor of science in statistics from UC Davis where he graduated with honors and used this degree to spend time working in public health research prior to commencing dental school. He graduated from the UCLA School of Dentistry, where he was a recipient of the Dean’s scholarship. He went on to complete a general practice residency at the West LA Veterans Hospital, where he received advanced training in all aspects of general dentistry, management of medically-compromised patients, as well as training in oral surgery and the placement and restorations of implants. Dr. Freed is listed as co-author on published articles in many esteemed journals, including the Journal of the American Dental Association.
Having spent the last few years as the dental director for a public health clinic in the city of San Fernando, he is excited to have joined the group at Santa Monica Bay Dental. He shares the commitment to excellent patient care and continued learning, and appreciates the close relationships with the providers in the practice. Since joining the group, he has completed comprehensive training in CEREC CAD/CAM dentistry, and recognizes this technology will continue to grow and expand within the dental field. Dr. Freed also joins the other doctors in their continuing education pursuits through Spear Education seminars and workshops designed to help dentists pursue and achieve the best patient care.
When Dr. Freed is not working hard to help others maintain optimal oral health, you might see him around town on his bicycle as he is an avid cyclist. He also enjoys playing soccer and working on do-it-yourself projects in his free time.
