Meet Dr. B. Lawrence (Larry) Bennett

Dr Lawrence Bennett, Holistic DentistDr. B. Lawrence (Larry) Bennett graduated from the University of Nebraska College of Dentistry in 1980. Larry practiced in Wyoming for 20 years and in Colorado Springs for 16 years. Presently, he has satellite dental practices in South Dakota and Wyoming.

Throughout Larry's professional career, he has studied neuromuscular dentistry, myofascial pain and dysfunction, TMJ, and completed thousands of hours in the study of occlusion.  He also practices biomimetic dentistry in his practice. 

Currently Dr. B. Lawrence Bennett is a faculty member for Orognathic Bioesthetics International, the nation’s leading training body for bioesthetic dentistry specializing in the diagnosis and correction of the chewing system disorders (TMJ).

He is a member of IAOMT, Orognathic Bioesthetics International, and The Academy of Biomimetic Dentistry. Dr. Bennett is engaged in on-going study, examination, and research of holistic and biologic dentistry.

Commitment to Mercury Free Dentistry

In dental school, Dr. Bennett learned that mercury in silver fillings was stable and safe.  But after practicing for ten years he began to recognize that mercury may leach out of the filling and expose the patient to the potential health hazards of chronic mercury exposure.  After thorough research, he has concluded that there is a health hazard associated with mercury in silver fillings. His dental practice has been mercury free for over 25 years. Dr. Bennett takes pride in protecting the patient and staff from unnecessary exposure to mercury.

Commitment to Optimum Health

Dr. Bennett views the mouth as the window to the rest of the body.  Precursors to disease like chronic inflammation, connective tissue breakdown, acid stress and oxidative stress, all have signs that can be seen in the mouth. We know that if these signs are present in the mouth, they may also be present in other areas of the body. They may indicate a potential change in body chemistry which can eventually lead to disease.

Because Dr. Bennett understands the important connection between dental health and the overall health of the body, he offers a holistic, nutritional approach to dental health which benefits all of his patients. 

Dr. Bennett and his wife, Carol have two wonderful grown children, Kelly and Rex. 

Holistic Dentistry

The term holistic is controversial and conjures up a variety of responses depending on personal experience. Since experiential learning forms our belief systems, each of us will relate differently to the term holistic.

In my view, holistic dentistry means dental health and systemic health, or the health of the whole body, are interrelated. Therefore, the health of the body can affect the health of the mouth, and the health of the mouth can also affect health in the rest of the body.
