At your first appointment with Dr. William Bennett, you’ll quickly see that he loves being an orthodontist. He recognizes that each patient is unique and enjoys the challenge of designing each person’s perfect smile with the most up-to-date technologies and advances in orthodontics.
Dr. Bennett has a long history of hard work in school and on his family’s farm which prepared him well for this position. He was raised in Screven, a small town in Southeast Georgia. He is the youngest of five children and now has 15 nieces and nephews.
When Dr. Bennett is not at the office, you’ll find him active in the Rome community and many local dental organizations. He volunteers time at the Rome free dental clinic and is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, the Southern Association of Orthodontics, the American Dental Association, the Georgia Dental Association, and the Northwest District Dental Association. Dr. Bennett and his wife, Mary, have two children: Ellie Grace and Wills. In all honesty, the vast majority of their time outside the office is spent playing with toy trains and play-dough!
Dr. Bennett’s professional education began at the University of Georgia, where he earned his pharmacy degree in 1999. He worked for a few years as a pharmacist for the Indian Health Service in the Western US and Alaska – Ask him about this experience for plenty of great stories! He returned to Georgia to complete his education in both medicine (M.D.) and dentistry (D.M.D.) at the Medical College of Georgia. While finishing dental school he discovered his love for orthodontics and continued to earn his certificate in orthodontics and M.S.D. at the University of Colorado.
