About

Bio

For more than 35 years, Dr. Dale Behner has provided superior dental care to residents of central Indiana. In 2000, he began practicing at his current location in Fishers, Ind., where he offers the most advanced oral-health technology and techniques, including the Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™, dental implants, and sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry focuses on creating a relaxing and pain-free environment for patients fearful of dental visits. Dr. Behner received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the Indiana University School of Dentistry in 1984. As a general practice resident at Indiana University Medical Center from 1984-1985, Dr. Behner introduced conscious sedation techniques, both intravenous and oral, to the program, and then continued to teach these methods as an assistant
