Benjamin C. Shepperd, DMD
Dr. Benjamin Shepperd’s father is a dentist as well. His time at his father’s practice as a child inspired a love for the profession.

A Focus on Advanced Technology For the Very Best Patient Results

Dr. Shepperd knows how important it is for dentists to stay on the cutting edge of care. Here are a few of his favorite tools for providing a truly exceptional dental experience.

Digital X-Rays and 3D Imaging

Dr. Shepperd and the rest of our dentists have done away with messy, unpleasant putty impressions. We can capture hyper-accurate images of your teeth, jaws, and oral structures with all-digital imaging instead.

The Wand Single Tooth Anesthesia System

Thanks to The Wand®, you’ll never have to worry about painful numbing injections again. This computer-aided anesthetic delivery device allows Dr. Shepperd and his team to control the flow of numbing medication to far more specific areas of the mouth, resulting in easier and pain-free visits.

Laser Dentistry

The prospect of scalpels and sutures can be scary for patients pursuing gum disease therapy or cosmetic gum reshaping, so Dr. Shepperd and his fellow Atlanta West dentists use modern dental lasers instead. Laser dentistry results in more precise care, a much more comfortable treatment experience, and easier recovery periods.

Advanced dental technologies

In His Free Time


When he’s not working with patients at our Marietta, GA, dental office, you can find Dr. Shepperd running, hiking, out on the water, and spending time with his friends and loved ones.

My husband went in for a root canal with Dr. Shepherd. My husband could not stop talking about his great manners and technique. He is ready to go back. He has had so many bad experiences. I knew this office would be a blessing to him.
