He has presented internationally at major dental meetings, universities, workshops, study clubs, and user meetings and has authored more than 200 articles, textbook chapters, and ADA-ANSI Technical Reports on topics ranging from Oral Cancer and enhanced diagnostic modalities to computerization, lasers, and other advanced dental technologies.  Dr. Benjamin is presently the Technology Section Editor for The Compendium of Continuing Education in Dentistry, and was the Technology Editor of The Journal of Practical Hygiene, and the Section Editor of Advanced Technologies for The Journal of Practical Procedures & Aesthetic Dentistry, and is currently on the editorial board of Inside Dentistry and, Dentistry Today.

As the only practicing dentist that serves on both standards committees Dr. Benjamin also is the co-chairman of the Joint Working Group of both the ADA-SCDP and ADA-SCDI that acts as the liaison that connects the two standards committees together especially in the areas of CAD-CAM dentistry and terminology.  He is a past member of the National Dental Electronic Data Interchange Council (NDEDIC) Board of Trustees. He is also the Immediate Past-President of the Academy of Laser Dentistry (ALD), a member of ANSI Sub-committee Z-136 on Laser Safety, and President of the Tri-County Dental Society and is a past President of the Sixth District Dental Society of the New York State Dental Association. He has served as the Scientific Program Chairman for the Academy of Laser Dentistry in 2007 and again in 2010. In 2014 Dr. Benjamin was honored by the ADA as “The Outstanding Volunteer” for his dedication to dentistry, especially as it relates to his efforts in the development of the ADA/ANSI Standards.

 

Dr. Benjamin has a faculty appointment at several universities and dental schools and was a participant at the World Health Organizations (WHO) Collaborating Centre for Oral Cancer and Precancer 2005 Closed Session Working Group on “Potentially Malignant Oral Mucosal Lesions and Conditions Terminology; Classification; Diagnosis and Prognosis”.

 

Dr. Benjamin’s interest in technology and advancing its proper utilization in dentistry began with his first computerized practice management system, in the early 1980’s, and was instrumental in the development and implementation of electronic communication and insurance submittals, in the mid 1980’s and is continuing to assist in the progression of digital communication, electronic patient records, and advanced technologies of many types into mainstream dentistry.

His interest continues today on a much broader scale with his involvement in the development of dental lasers, clinical screening, diagnostic, and treatment modalities and incorporating the appropriate utilization of advanced technologies into the everyday clinical dental practice.  Dr. Benjamin is a consultant and advisor for many dental practices and several dental technology companies utilizing his expertise in clinical dentistry and oral health, oral cancer, lasers, digital radiography, imaging, practice management, dental computerization, diagnostics, ergonomics, and workflow.
