Dr. Ben Bushnell has been proudly practicing in Lakeside since 2005. He places great importance on developing and growing lasting relationships with his patients. He believes strongly in using the best dental technology available and continually educating himself in the field’s best science and practice. His goal is to provide quality dentistry in a comfortable setting – creating a positive dental experience.
Dr. Bushnell grew up and attended college in Nebraska (and is, without a doubt, a Cornhusker). He earned a degree in journalism and minor in biology from Creighton University in 1998. He then graduated from the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry in 2003. He developed a love of Northwest Montana during childhood visits and later an externship in Browning. He didn’t argue when his wife wanted to move to Kalispell to live closer to family.
Since starting his Lakeside practice, Dr. Bushnell has actively pursued continuing education. His pursuit of knowledge has taken him to study groups and educational courses across the United States. He is currently a member of The Montana Study Club.
When he’s not working, Dr. Bushnell devotes his time to family. He is the proud father of three: Miller, Camas, and Sylvie; and husband of Lindsey. His love of the outdoors – hiking, biking, and skiing – is, in part, why he originally came to Montana. And, he now shares this love with his family.
It’s exactly how a 21st century small town dental office should feel: old fashioned in its neighborliness yet modern in its science and equipment. Come find out why patients keep coming back and walking away smiling.
