Meet the Doctor

Dr. Benjamin Ricketts

Dr. Ricketts received his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from Indiana University School of Dentistry in 2007. He completed a one year hospital residency at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center in San Antonio where he received a General Practice Residency (GPR) certificate. Following his residency, he completed his two year endodontic specialty training at Indiana University School of Dentistry and the Richard L. Roudebush Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center both located in Indianapolis, Indiana. While in Indianapolis, he also received his Masters of Science in Dentistry (MSD) degree from Indiana University School of Dentistry. Dr. Ricketts has concentrated on management of the medically compromised patient, IV sedation, implant placement, and operating room dentistry.

In 2010, Dr. Ricketts moved to Colorado to be closer to family. He began working full time with Endodontic Specialists of Colorado in Colorado Springs and later moved to the Denver-Metro area to open his own practice in 2012 which is located in Aurora.

Dr. Ricketts is committed to organized dentistry and continuing education. He is currently a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), the Colorado Dental Association (CDA), the American Association of Endodontists (AAE), and the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD).  Dr. Ricketts has also had the privilege of acting as a member and vice chair for the New Dentist Commitee (NDC) of the CDA, in which he will take over as chair this year (2013). He is also the Endodontic lead of the Colorado Mission of Mercy (COMOM) task force. Dr. Ricketts is currently working on the final phase of application to the American Board of Endodontics (ABE). In fact, he recently passed the ABE oral examination in pursuit of board certification, a honor that less than a quarter of endodontists have received.

On a more personal note, Dr. Ricketts enjoys many sports including running, cycling, skiing, scuba diving and tennis.

He has interest in music, computers, history, travelling, and learning about different cultures.  His contagious smile and unforgettable personality are comforting to people of all walks of life.
