Meet Dr. Bennett
Best Oral Surgeon in Mishawaka, South Bend, and Granger
Edison Lakes Oral Surgery welcomes Dr. Sonia Bennett to the Michiana region. Dr. Bennett grew up in central Virginia where she completed her undergraduate education at the Virginia Commonwealth University, attaining degrees in Biology, Environmental Studies, and Chemistry. Her dental pursuits brought her to the Hoosier state where she earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree in 2014 from the Indiana University School of Dentistry and was awarded for special achievements in oral surgery and dental implants. Following dental school, Dr. Bennett and her family relocated to the Bay Area in California for her residency training in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of the Pacific and Highland Hospital / Kaiser Oakland medical centers. Dr. Bennett was fortunate to receive surgical training and mentorship from a number of preeminent oral and maxillofacial surgeons, with a particular interest in dentoalveolar surgery, orthognathic surgery, oral rehabilitation with dental implants, reconstructive surgery, and pediatric care. During residency, Dr. Bennett represented her specialty as the District Representative of the Resident Organization of the Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, and as the Chief Resident, she was selected to join a team of specialists providing remote care to children with cleft lip and palate in Puebla, Mexico.
Dr. Bennett is a Diplomat of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons and is licensed to provide IV sedation and general anesthesia to her patients. When Dr. Bennett is not operating, she loves exploring the outdoors with her husband and children, experiencing local food and art, and riding horses on her farm.
