Dr. Benjamin Golik attended the University of Missouri in an expedited three-year program in which he earned his Bachelor of Science degree with Magna cum Laude, University Honors. At the same time, he also completed a joint research project in which he is published in the Journal of Experimental Biology. Dr. Golik then went on to complete his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of Missouri-Kansas City with Honors.
After Dental School, Dr. Golik was selected and finished a one-year Advanced General Practice Residency at the Lutheran Medical Center, a Level-I trauma hospital. Throughout this term he expanded his training in numerous multifaceted dental treatments including full-mouth cosmetic rehabilitation, orthodontics, oral surgery, and root canal therapies with the most cutting-edge technologies. He is a certified Invisalign provider and focused on Cosmetic Dentistry.
Personally, Dr. Golik chose Dentistry because of the natural fusion of the sciences and the arts. He has always continued to support his talent and skill with painting and has always wanted to support local artists by transforming a dental office into an art gallery. With a love of the art scene he is motivated to support it and continue to be a part of the museum, film, theater, and music world. Also, you can find him enjoying an active lifestyle with his wife, family, and friends. If there is another passion he loves it is definitely being in the outdoors as much as possible traveling and exploring.
