Dr. Benjamin Marine was exposed to dentistry at a young age, since his father is an orthodontist, and his family enjoyed spending time with many of the dentists in the community. This exposure “planted the seed” of how rewarding a career in dentistry could be. Dr. Marine feels that his small-town upbringing and lifelong interest in dentistry have shaped his philosophy of listening to his patients’ concerns and placing their well-being above all else.
Dr. Marine received his Bachelor of Arts in biology and business management from Augustana College in 2010 and went on to obtain his dental degree at Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine. He is an active member of the American Dental Association, Illinois State Dental Society, and Rock Island County Dental Society.
Dr. Marine was born and raised in the Quad City area and now resides in Moline. He is married to Lora, the love of his life and an orthodontist, which furthers the family commitment to dentistry! In his free time, Dr. Marine enjoys any outdoor activity, cooking, traveling, and spending time with friends and family.
