“Family is important” – A message from Dr. Eric Benefield

My life revolves around my beautiful wife, Aimee and our six kids! Our four daughters, each born in different states, are growing up to be beautiful young women just like their mom! Our first son is named Hinckley. He is named after one of the most influential men in both my life and my wife’s, Gordon B. Hinckley. We were blessed with one final addition, our son Thomas. He is named after another hero of ours, Thomas S. Monson.

Coming home to Grand Junction, CO in October 2011 was one of the big highlights in my life. It is so fun to be raising my children right here where I was raised. Their love for the outdoors and the western slope continues to grow! It’s great to be home, providing dental care in this area of the world that means so much to me!
