What Our Clients Say About Us

    I am not an easy patient, but Dr. Bendush and his staff have always taken great care of me. I have been a patient for 20+ years now and I hope anyone looking for a dentist in Indy will consider trying this wonderful practice!

    Philip V.

    As the "new owner" of 12 crowns, I commend Dr. Bendush and his entire staff for their professionalism and commitment to exceptional dental care. His work is excellent!

    Kathleen F.

    I have been seeing Dr. Bendush for a few years now. For me, that is amazing. I have a long history of seeing a dentist once and never going back. I am phobic, but I am now a regular patient! He is great and so are the people who work with him.

    Sherri E.

    Have plaque problems with several teeth and needed deep cleaning to remove plaque. The hygienist worked on my teeth, she is always very gentle, numbs my gums to stop any pain. Highly recommend Dr. Bendush, and all his staff! I'm in Noblesville now and still drive 20 miles each way to see Dr. Bendush.
