As a diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, her work allows her patients to enjoy a higher quality of life through improvements in both appearance and function. Dr. Bennett carefully develops treatment plans that work for each patient as an individual, whether addressing impacted or missing teeth, skeletal facial deformities, surgical defects, or other conditions that require surgical treatment and the implementation of safe and effective anesthesia.

Dr. Bennett earned her D.D.S. from Indiana University School of Dentistry, where she graduated at the top of her class. She then completed her residency in oral and maxillofacial surgery in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she operated in one of the busiest trauma hospitals and the highest volume orthognathic centers in the country. She has operated on over 300 skeletofacial deformity cases in residency, becoming one of the most experienced orthognathic surgeons in the country. Her residency included heavy rotations in trauma, cleft lip and palate, TMJ surgery, and anesthesia, as well as dentoalveolar surgery. She went on to be recognized for surgical excellence as the chief resident of Children’s Hospital Oakland and was selected to join a team of specialists providing care to children with cleft lip and palate in Puebla, Mexico.

Upon graduation, Dr. Sonia Bennett moved to the Midwest, where she has been providing care ever since. She has been the primary surgeon for ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers in Chicago and Indianapolis for the past five years. During that time, she has operated on over 1,000 full-arch cases, making her one of the most experienced dental implant surgeons in all of Northwest Indiana. 

“Dr. Bennett did filler and Botox treatments for me. It was my first time getting filler and she did a great job of listening to what I wanted. I was having a hard time getting anything to help with my under-eye area especially, I was very pleased with how instantly I could see the difference it made, taking years off my appearance.  I’d recommend Dr. Bennett to anyone looking to turn back the clock while still looking natural and like the best version of themselves.”
