About Us

It is all about the patient at BayCove. If you are looking for personalized care, we are here for you. If you are looking for high quality care, we are here for you. You will feel at home with Dr. Benderson and the staff at BayCove.

We cater to adults, kids and cowards!

High quality dentistry is my craft. It is what I strive for each and every day. The biggest compliment I can receive is a patient’s referral of friends, family and neighbors. It means that a great deal of trust has been placed in both me and my staff.
