Meet Dr. Benkovich

Even though I have been doing this for a while, I continue to be amazed at how people change by having their smiles improved. Great smiles lead to happy and confident people! Helping them get there is very rewarding.” — Dr. Benkovich

Dr. John A. Benkovich loves creating beautiful smiles, and he has been doing so since 1993! Dr. Benkovich, our award-winning orthodontist in Annapolis and Chester, appreciates his patients and their families, and his orthodontic offices are run in a very patient-focused way.

Here are just a few of his beliefs upon which his orthodontic practice is built:

  • He feels that your valuable time should never be spent waiting in his office.
  • He believes that each patient is an individual and should be treated with individualized care.
  • He believes that your orthodontic experience should be completed on time.
  • He believes that you and/or your child should have fun while in his office.

Dr. Benkovich enjoys an active lifestyle outside the office. He and his wife Maureen love to travel and stay fit. Dr. Benkovich is a member of a U.S. Masters swimming and swims on the U.S. Naval Academy Masters Swim Program.


Dr. Benkovich earned a Bachelor of Science from Pennsylvania State University. After graduating magna cum laude from the University of Maryland Dental School, he pursued an orthodontic residency at the University of Louisville. In addition to being certified in the dental specialty of orthodontics, he conducted original research in digital radiology for which he earned a master’s degree in oral biology. He is a lifelong student who attends numerous continuing education courses each year, which helps him stay on top while providing the latest in orthodontic care.

Dr. Benkovich accepted an invitation to serve as an advisor to the Triple Crown Seattle Study Club, a prestigious dental study club that helps dentists around the world work through complex dental problems.
