I’m a Georgia Peach, being born and raised here in Georgia and currently living in Woodstock. I enjoy spending time with family and friends and going on beach vacations.

LeeAnn Benson- Assistant

I feel very blessed to be a part of Apex Endodontics since January 2013. As a dental assistant, it is my goal to make your experience here great. I started in the dental field 22 years ago. I feel it is my ability to talk to people that helps our patient feel relaxed while they are here. I am married and a mom of three daughters that keep my very busy in competition cheerleading. I love spending time with my family and friends and having cookouts and going on trips.
