“We are a prevention-oriented dental practice that strives to maintain optimal dental health through comprehensive, quality dental care. Because of our commitment to excellence, we promise to treat our patients’ needs with the highest level of care. Our standard of care is nothing less than what we expect for ourselves.” — Dr. Gerkin
Dr. Ben Gerkin graduated with honors from the University of Oklahoma in 1999 with a health and sport sciences degree. In 2004, he graduated from the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry. After graduating, Dr. Gerkin immediately went into the dental field, eventually purchasing this practice in August 2008.
Understanding the importance of continuing education, he has been trained and certified in Invisalign® and ClearCorrect treatments. He also received advanced training in CEREC restorations, implant dentistry and cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Gerkin also holds professional memberships and titles with the American Dental Association®, the Oklahoma Dental Association, the Tulsa County Dental Society and the Academy of General Dentistry.
Dr. Gerkin’s practice philosophy centers around prevention and comprehensive care. He and his team are dedicated to maintaining a safe and healthy environment for both our patients and employees. They are also dedicated to the overall dental needs of their patients through education, thorough diagnosis, treatment, prevention and maintenance. His goal is to provide patients with the finest dental care while building trust and confidence for a lifetime.
For Dr. Gerkin, there are many rewarding aspects to dentistry, including giving patients a reason to smile again and changing a patient’s perception of dentistry. It is priceless when his patients mention to him that they are now eating foods they have not eaten in decades, smiling in pictures again, or living with a new sense of confidence because of the dentistry he has provided for them.
Dr. Gerkin is married to his high school sweetheart. They have twin daughters and a son. He enjoys spending time with his family, golfing, running, playing tennis, being on the lake and grilling.
