Dr. Andrew Benson and his business Loup City Dental was selected as the August business of the month by a drawing made by the Loup City Chamber of Commerce.
He wrote: Thanks for selecting us! Nellie our hygienist and I started working here in July of 2012. At that time it was owned by Family First Dental a company based in Norfolk. On January 1 of 2016 I took over ownership of the Loup City and Saint Paul dental offices. They were renamed their respective town names “Loup City Dental” and “Saint Paul Dental.” The two offices work as an extension of one another and the staff works at both locations. We are able to coordinate appointments/care between the two.
My great Loup City staff include:
Nellie Campbell, our hygienist who has been with me since the beginning and everyone seems to know. Nellie does a great job of getting to know and developing relationships with her patients.
Valerie McDonald, one of our dental assistants who has been working here for five years. Val has become very versatile and is capable of handling any situation. She is especially good at working with children.
Deanna Baker, our front office coordinator who I have worked with from the beginning in Grand Island. She has worked in Loup City in the past and has since returned. Deanna has the hardest job navigating the world of dental insurance.
Kinley Krzycki, our newest team member a dental assistant, she is a familiar face to many of you and has learned quickly how to do a great job.
Our office hours are Mondays and Thursdays from 8AM-5PM. We are also available on the other days in St Paul should the need arise.
We are a dental office that provides comprehensive family dentistry. We see patients of all ages 1-100+. We provide the broad range of services that include preventative/hygiene, restorative, oral surgery, root canals, crowns, dentures among others.
There are busy seasons in a dental office too. The busy season usually starts when the weather warms up in March and runs through September.
COVID update, we did have a shutdown from March 20th through May 4th. We opened back up and have slowly gotten back up to speed. There have been some additional infection control measures added to our office. I have noticed that people lately have been eager to get back on their dental schedule.
Dr. Benson earned his undergraduate degree is from Wayne State College and his dental degree is from UNMC College of Dentistry. He is from Worms. His wife is Kristin and they have children-William 7, Hannah 5, Kate 3 and the newest member born August 3, Grace Louise.
Working in Loup City for the people here and the surrounding area has really been my honor. We have been received warmly from the beginning and it continues now. We have developed very friendly relationships with our patients where it is really just great to see them. I should also mention this would not be possible without the people I work with. I have such a great staff and I am really excited about the future.
