Dental Practice in Columbia and Proud of It

Serving Friends & Neighbors Since 1975

Our team loves being a member of the Columbia community and getting to know local people and businesses. This mentality has been with us since Dr. Ben Batson started our practice over 40 years ago. And, it is important to his son and our current dentist — Dr. Philip Batson — that our caring team spends time helping those less fortunate. This involves participating in Missouri Mission of Mercy to provide free essential dentistry to patients in need, as well as King’s Daughters. We’re always ready to make a difference!

What Our Dental Patients Are Saying

"A really friendly and professional office. Dr. Batson took the time to explain my gum condition and WHY I should actually change some of my habits. It's nice to not just be scornfully told you should floss more, but instead have your dentist actually talk you through the science of oral health without being judgmental. I have to go to a dentist anyway, so I want to go to one that I like and that seems to care about me. Dr. Batson is the best!" Erik S.Ashland, MO

"Thorough, quality, state of the art, professional dental care in a friendly and welcoming environment. You can trust Dr. Batson to take good care of your healthy smile!" Becky B.Shaw, MO

"Dr. Batson is a really great dentist. I used to be really afraid of going to the dentist, but not anymore. He's such a down to earth guy and you can tell he really cares about you and what he does. It is rare to find these days... a doctor that truly cares. He does a superb job, as well. I get my teeth cleaned here regularly, but have also had to undergo a couple restorative procedures. Results were great. Thanks, Dr. Batson!" Bill Z.Harg, MO
