Meet Our Dentist - Waterford, CT

Meet Dr. Arnold Benak Jr.

Dr. Arnold Benak Jr.

Dr. Arnold Benak Jr., originally from Boston, started his dental journey at Bostun University, where he obtainted his Bachelor of Science. During his college years, Dr. Benak’s family owned the Dock n’ Dine Restaurant in Old Saybrook where he also worked and developed a love for the Connecticut shoreline. He elected to take a different path from the family business and instead attended Tufts School of Dental Medicine, where he acquired his Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD). It was because of his family and his newfound love for Southeastern Connecticut that he decided to open his practice in East Lyme where he served the community for over forty years before joining Graniteville Dental Solutions in the summer of 2023.

Dr. Benak calls Waterford home and lives there with his wife Dr. Rosemary Bontempi. His years at the family restaurant learning culinary skills have not gone to waste and he continues to use those skills as the primary chef of the household.

When not helping patients with their dental needs, Dr. Benak is often found practicing on the drums, golfing and spending time with his daughter, Christina, her husband, Sean, and their son, Joseph.

We’ll care for you and your family!
