Dr Ben Cosson
Lead Dentist | BOHDSc, GradDip Dentistry (QLD)
Born in Canberra and moved to Queensland in 2006, in search of sunnier pastures. Ben’s philosophy is to treat patients as he would like to be treated, ensuring everyone has a gentle experience, and to promote understanding of dental disease and how to resolve it. Ben is most passionate in preventing future issues, as he understands that no one has time for a toothache.
Ben is a graduate of Griffith University (Gold Coast) in 2011, receiving Academic Awards for each year of study. After graduation, he worked for the Royal Australian Air Force for three years and was the Senior Dental Officer in Townsville. Since leaving the RAAF he has worked in Victoria and Queensland, and most recently appointed the Lead Dentist for NDC Springfield Central. Ben can perform all general and emergency dental treatment and strives to help both children and adults overcome their dental fears.
In his personal time, Ben has been busy with his first baby girl, but loves to play guitar in his spare time. He also likes to play squash and represented the Air Force squash team two years running. He is a Springfield Lakes local and will be happy to help you with anything.

Dentist | BDSc
After graduating from the University of Otago in 2001 with a Bachelor of Dental Science, I set out on a great adventure, experiencing both work and life in New Zealand and areas of Australia. In 2006, I relocated to Sydney and started my own dental practice in the Sydney CBD. I enjoyed my years there, building strong relationships with my patients, however the demands of my young family saw us relocating to Brisbane to find a better work/life balance. I have since then enjoyed being a Brisbane local, and have loved being a part of National Dental Care’s growing family of caring and passionate clinicians.
I enjoy all aspects of dental care, from simple fillings to ceramic fillings and crowns, endodontics treatment and restoration of implants. I am continually humbled and grateful that I am able to do what I love every day. My passion for helping people gain/re-gain control of their own health seems to grow with every patient interaction!

“I called Malaysia home till one day, my family and I decided to live the “Australian Dream”, and so we packed our bags and arrived here in the “Lucky Country”. We have called Springfield Lakes our home for the last 10 years.
After leaving dental school, I worked for Queensland Health before landing here at NDC Springfield Central. This is a great opportunity for me to share my passion for dentistry with other members of the community.
My professional mantra is “Prevention is better than cure”. For me personally, being a Dentist is about listening to, caring for and guiding a friend to take complete charge of their oral health. It is a team effort to achieve the common goal of patient satisfaction.
Outside of work, I love to cook and spend time with my wife and daughter.”
