Benjamin Record Dental Center, formerly John M. Smith, DDS Laser Dentistry, is now open and accepting new patients. Dr. Record, a native of Clinton, has recently joined Central's growing community and looks forward continuing the excellent dental care provided by Dr. Smith for years to come.  Dr. Record obtained his DDS from LSUSD in 2003 and then completed a 2 year hospital dentistry residency (General Practice Residency) at "Big Charity" in New Orleans, learning the art of sedation dentistry, expanding his oral surgery skills, treating difficult cases both dentally and medically, and deepening his love of general dentistry on patients with all types of special needs.  Immediately after completing his residency, he was asked to take over as Director and has held that position since September 1, 2005.  During his tenure, he helped rebuild LSUSD and the GPR program during a time of multiple hurricanes, natural disasters and shrinking state budgets and leaves LSUSD with a successful GPR program having 18 residents in New Orleans and Baton Rouge.  Teaching dentistry to young dentists and treating patients within the LSU Health System requires a great deal of enthusiasm, ingenuity, creativity and patience, and you'll find Dr. Record brings that to Record Dental Center.  
Dr. Record (pictured above with his family) and his wife, Dr. Ashley Record, a practicing Dermatologist at Advanced Dermatology in Zachary have 2 children, Lillian (2 1/2) and Abram (1 month), live in Mid-City Baton Rouge but enjoy practicing in the growing cities of Central and Zachary.  When not working, spending time with their young and growing family takes center stage.  Activities involve all things outdoors, farmer's markets, water activities at Lake St. John, Spokane, LA or enjoying the country at "Breezy Hill Farms" in Clinton.  Wherever they are, Dr. Record is sure to have a camera capturing life's precious moments.  
Sarah Forbes, RDH; Heather Depew, Office Manager/Dental Assistant, and Christy Barr, Dental Assistant, have stayed on during the transition and are excited to be a part of the newest dental clinic to open in Central.  Stop by and welcome Dr. Record to the City of Central and find them on FaceBook where they are known to post updates and the occasional prize!
