William J. Bennett DDS

Dr. Bennett is a 1975 graduate of the University of Maryland School of Dentistry. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in 1971 from Wake Forest University. After receiving his Doctor of Dental Science degree, Dr. Bennett continued his clinical training at Medical College of Virginia Dental School and Children’s Hospital in a General Practice Residency. He then served as an Associate Professor on the faculty of MCV Dental School. Following his faculty position he began general practice in Williamsburg and is the founder of the Williamsburg Dental Group. He continued his affiliation with the dental school as an adjunct faculty member. He is very proud to be a student of the Pankey Institute, one of the world’s most respected post graduate learning institutions.

Away from the practice, Dr. Bennett enjoys flying small aircraft and is one of Virginia’s few seaplane pilots. In the past he was the Williamsburg area’s best seaplane pilot. That is possibly because he was the only one! He also enjoys photography and fishing.
