Dr. Benjamin Bailey

Dr. Benjamin Bailey was born in Midland, the son of the late Dr. Eldon Bailey, DDS, and Katie Bailey (now Katie Groulx).

Dr. Ben attended Siebert Elementary School, Jefferson Middle School, and Dow High School. During high school Dr. Ben was a member of the Dow High JV and Varsity soccer teams, participated in marching and symphonic band, and was a member of the NHS. He was actively involved in Boy Scouts of America and with his local church groups. During his senior year he was a co-op at the MidMichigan Regional Medical Center’s Microbiology Lab. He graduated from Dow High in 2002 with a 4.88 GPA.

Dr. Ben attended Grand Valley State University (GVSU) from 2002-2006 where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Biomedical Sciences, graduating with a 3.69 GPA. He was on the Dean’s list every semester while at GVSU and also tutored students in Biology at the GVSU tutoring center. He was one of the founding members of the GVSU Pre-Dental Club and went on to be its president his senior year. He also worked as an admissions counselor, helping incoming students make decisions regarding their college experience.

Upon graduating from GVSU, Dr. Ben was accepted to the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. He was inducted as a member of the Omicron Kappa Epsilon National Dental Honor Society. He graduated from the University of Michigan in 2010 with a 3.6 GPA, and was ranked 19th in his class. He took the Northeast Regional Boards and scored between 96 and 100% in all clinical tests.

His dental experience started at a young age as he worked part-time at his dad’s dental office performing various cleaning, set-up, and dental material fabrication duties. When he got to GVSU, he continued to participate in dentistry by being involved with the GVSU Pre-Dental Club. His education at University of Michigan was the springboard for a commitment to serving his patients and community for years to come.

Dr. Ben loves skiing, snowboarding, wakeboarding, wake skating, mountain biking, hitting the gym, and pretty much any sport that involves the outdoors and a challenge. He is also a huge baseball and football fan. His wife, Ashly, who he met in dental school, is also a dentist. They enjoy spending time with their young sons, Christian and Bodhi, and their dogs, Clarke and Blaze.
