Roanoke dentist Dr. Ben McDonald, DDS

Ben McDonald, DDS

A native of Daleville, VA, Dr. Ben McDonald earned his BS from the College of William and Mary, majoring in kinesiology and health sciences and minoring in biochemistry. Seeking a career that would allow him the opportunity to work with his hands and solve problems, he went on to earn his DDS from the VCU School of Dentistry.

To further his knowledge and stay on top of developments in dental technology and techniques, he holds memberships in the American Dental Association, the Virginia Dental Association, the Roanoke Valley Dental Society, and the Christian Medical and Dental Association.

When enjoying his free time, Dr. Ben can often be found outside on the golf course, tennis court, or hiking trail.

“I love getting the chance to wake up every day and help people have a healthier smile. I enjoy getting to know each patient and tailoring their treatment according to their needs and goals. Everyone is different, and we all have different ideas of what our ideal smile is.” – Dr. Ben McDonald

Roanoke Dentis Dr. Kate McDonald, DDS

Kate McDonald, DDS

Dr. Kate McDonald was born in Illinois in the suburbs of Chicago before moving to Apex, NC, where she was raised. She attended Virginia Tech, earning a BS in biological sciences, a Minor in Music, and was a member of the band, the Marching Virginians. Dentistry called to her with its opportunities for patient interaction, relationship building, and artistry, leading her to earn her DDS from the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry.

Continuing education is important to Dr. Kate, and her professional memberships help her deliver up-to-date dentistry to the people in her care. These memberships include the American Dental Association, the Virginia Dental Association, the Roanoke Valley Dental Society, and the Christian Medical and Dental Association.

Outside of the office, Dr. Kate enjoys hiking, biking, sewing, cooking, and relaxing with her cat, Zoey. She is also learning how to golf and makes trips to Blacksburg for Hokie football games with her family and friends.

“I love the interactions and relationships I get to form with my patients every day. I also enjoy helping people achieve healthy smiles and educating them about their dental health.” Dr. Kate McDonald

A Healthy smile is just a click away.
