Dr. Benjamin Polan, DMD, FABDSM
“Some ten years ago, after practicing dentistry for many years, I was fortunate to take a course espousing the future of dentistry. Discovering its ability to change people’s lives
ignited a passion and let me take my first steps on my quest to become one of the premier dentists. My mentor has a quote he often uses, “you don’t know what you don’t know”. This
has driven my thirst for knowledge and pushed me to pursue new techniques of the highest level.
Dr. Benjamin Polan attended Connecticut College and Boston University Goldman School of Dentistry. He has been practicing on the North Shore for over 25 years, and is a graduate of the prestigious Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies. He is trained in the discipline of combining aesthetic dentistry and neuromuscular dentistry to provide both function and fashion in the treatment of temporomandibular dysfunction (TMJ). Dr. Benjamin Polan has also received extensive training at the Somnomed Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and the Allentown Pain Center, the Elite Dental Institute and The Tufts Dental School Mini Residency Program in Sleep Apnea. His education never quits, and so neither does the depth of his knowledge on treating TMJ, headache pain, sleep apnea, and more.
Based in Beverly, MA, he strives to stay on the cutting edge of technological advances in dental medicine. He has studied with some of the leading dentists and scholars in the field of Dental Sleep Medicine.
A dentist who cares
Dr. Benjamin Polan has traveled to Israel to provide pediatric dental care to the nation’s children. He has partnered with Doctors With A Heart, an international organization treating the indigent, and with the local organization Beverly Bootstraps to provide dental care to those most in need. Dentistry isn’t about dentistry for Dr. Polan, it’s about it’s ability to make a positive difference in the lives of every individual.
A dentist who loves life
“I grew up in the Metrowest area, and moved to the North Shore after graduating from dental school, where I now live with my family. My wife, Bonnie, is an educator with a Doctorate in Curriculum and Teaching. My two children have established successful careers of their own; my daughter Briana is a musician and conductor and is currently in law school, and my son Brad is a financial analyst. Our wonderful daughter in law Yvette Polan is also a dentist, specializing in Prosthodontics. At home are our two Tibetan Terriers, Bella, Brodie who allow us to occupy the house with them. My passion for precise aesthetic dentistry has led to a new hobby, creating mosaics and stained glass art.”
