Meet the Dentists

There is an incredible team of passionate individuals that make up the team at Yuma Family Dental. Take a minute to learn a little bit more about their dentists, Dr. Ben Gardner & Dr. Dustin Ruspini. 

Dr. Ben Gardner

Dr. Ben Gardner graduated from the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine in 2012. He was raised in Yuma County on his family’s farm and ranch near Eckley. Dr. Ben received his Bachelor’s Degree from Oklahoma Panhandle State University with a major in ag business and a minor in Animal Science. He spent some as a general contractor before being introduced to a career in dentistry.

Dr. Ben completed his residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry through Lutheran Medical Center in Northern Arizona. Dr. Ben is passionate about continuing to further his education in order to better serve his community. He keeps expanding his knowledge through post-graduate education at Spear Education, Dr. Edward P. Allen’s Center for Advanced Dental Education, Dental Success Network, Conscious Sedation Consultants, Sclar Center of Oral Surgery and Implant Dentistry, and Great Lakes Implant Institute. He is certified in ClearCorrect clear aligner therapy. He is a member of the ADA, CDA, Northeastern CO Dental Society, and a Spear Study Club member.

Dr. Ben met his wife, Dr. Resa, in dental school. They bought their practices and moved back to Yuma County in 2014. Dr. Resa practices at Wray Family Dental in Wray, CO. They recently had their first child, Benjamin and are attempting to navigate childhood. During Dr. Ben’s spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family as well as being active outdoors. His hobbies include going to the lake, hunting, fishing, skiing, or golfing. He also still enjoys helping out on the farm, or he can often be found working on a remodeling project.

Dr. Ben has always loved the small-town lifestyle and could not be more proud to serve the community he grew up in. He strives to offer his patients the best care available by staying current with the latest techniques and current technology.

Dr. Dustin Ruspini

Dustin Ruspini received a DDS degree from the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco, California and a B.S. from the University of Colorado in Denver. Some of his most memorable experiences in dentistry have been arranging exchange programs with dental students from Peking University in Beijing. This goes hand in hand with his experience as a member of monthly mission trips to provide free dental care for the underprivileged population in Mexico and the Philippines. 

Dustin is a huge fan of live music and in his free time can be found playing basketball, discovering new places to see/food to eat, or lounging around the house with a book in hand. Dustin will be moving to Wray with his wife Catalina in 2019, and they are both so excited to get to work and meet everyone in the area of northeastern Colorado.
