Careers

ABOUT me

Hi.  My name is Benjamin Hsu.  I am a second-generation dentist with nine years of experience.  I absolutely love dentistry.  Really.  Throughout various stages of my career I have been lucky to be an employee, manager, and owner in the dental practice.  Having been at all levels of the organization, I believe this makes me a unique leader as having seen, from multiple perspectives, many things go wrong and a few things go right.  At each stage and each day I distill a bit more of what makes a better team and thriving culture.  This will be my only office, but ultimately my third venture.  I cannot express how excited I am to start this journey with an amazing team at my side for our amazing patients.  I hope that you can join the team!
