General Dentist in Benson, NC.

Hi! I’m Dr. Chris Walker, owner and general dentist at Benson Dentistry. Every patient deserves to have a dental home, and I hope you will find yours at our office.

I’m a dentist who believes in educating patients to take charge of their own oral health. The mouth is the gateway to the body, and our team at Benson Dentistry is committed to inspiring you to take care of not just your teeth, but your overall health. We want to provide you with the preventative tools needed to keep your teeth and gums healthy, natural and functioning. We also want you to be happy enough with your smile that you share it with the world!

North Carolina has always been home for me. I am from Eastern North Carolina, and I am deeply committed to our state’s people and everything that it has to offer – from the mountains to the coast. Our office in Benson is a part of the rapidly growing Johnston County area, just outside of Raleigh, our capital city. You can find our office in downtown Benson, on Market Street just across from the Post Office. We are always accepting new patients. When the front door is open, feel free to come on in!

  • I love playing outside! Fresh air, sunshine and a little sweat keeps me mentally and physically healthy
