Word Spreads about Dr. Eric Wagar and the Excellent Customer Service at Benson Hill Smiles
At Benson Hill Smiles, when new patients come to our office, they often tell us about the high praise they heard regarding the quality of care that our dentist provides. We love hearing about our patients’ amazing experiences and we want you to know the reason Benson Hill Smiles is known for that level of patient care. Dr. Eric Wagar’s unflinching commitment to excellence shines through in every service. His dedication can be traced back to his early dental training.
Dr. Wagar completed his Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry at the University of Redlands in southern California. He then attended Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland where he earned his Doctorate of Dental Medicine. While his degrees made him eligible to be a dentist, Dr. Wagar continued his education with postdoctoral course work. It is that additional training that makes him stand out. Even now, he frequently completes more than twice the required continuing education hours needed to maintain his license to practice dentistry. Over the years, Dr. Wagar has completed training for Invisalign® orthodontics, periodontics, and cosmetic dentistry. He works hard to stay on the leading edge of the latest research so that he can bring the highest quality services to his dental practice.
Dr. Wagar has a specific interest in dental implant technology. Following the completion of advanced training in the field, he earned fellowship status with the International Congress of Oral Implantology. This distinction is not given to everyone. It is reserved for those dentists who demonstrate a commitment to learning advanced skills for the successful placement of dental implants while also showing a high level of judgment in making complicated decisions during the implant procedure. If you need an implant, this is the level of expertise that you want your dentist to have.
Dr. Wagar extends his passion and expertise for dentistry to our community where he volunteers at the Seattle Union Gospel Mission’s dentistry clinic and the Give Kids a Smile Program. Outside of the community, Dr. Wagar serves on a dental team that travels to northern Haiti to treat those in need. His unwavering desire to give to others is just one part of what makes our dentist so special.
When you visit our clinic, you’ll find that we make every effort to make your treatment stress-free. Pandora music is available to help you relax and drown out noises that make many patients uncomfortable. Pillows are provided so that you can get comfortable in the chair during treatments. We’ll even wrap you in a warm blanket while you get your teeth cleaned if you’d like. Our comfort services also include options for conscious sedation and nitrous oxide so that you experience the easiest appointments possible during your time with us.
Our team looks forward to treating every patient that enters our clinic, and we also look forward to working with Dr. Eric Wagar each day. His cheerful personality puts our patients at ease, and they appreciate the time that he spends during each visit getting to know them and their dental needs. It is a pleasure to show our patients that dentistry doesn’t have to be uncomfortable. We’ve made Benson Hill Smiles a cozy retreat where patients receive expert dental care in a friendly, relaxing environment. We look forward to seeing you soon!
