Dr. Bennett specializes in the care of children and adolescents and was the first pediatrician to practice in Spanish Fork, now with over 15 years of clinical experience. He was selected by professors in his residency program at Primary Children’s Medical Center as the doctor to whom they would take their own children and graduated at the top of his medical school class. He takes seriously his objective to keep you home and healthy. He works hard to educate families how to avoid problems, both physical and emotional, that may distract from optimum health and life enjoyment. He has six children of his own from age 3 to 20 years that have taught him many life and parenting lessons. As his practice has matured, he has developed a large adolescent population for whom he loves providing care.
Dr. Bennett enjoys primary care pediatrics. He manages routine ailments and does comprehensive preventive care with the objective to discover, predict and prevent problems from arising. He helps parents understand their child or adolescent’s unique temperament and development, and he believes strongly in fostering healthy parent-child attachments and utilizing that attachment to help young people reach their optimum potential.
Dr. Bennett also enjoys secondary care pediatrics or helping youth with more complicated problems such as sports medicine related conditions, asthma, allergies, seizure management, dermatological conditions such as rashes and acne, fractures, lacerations, bowel and bladder elimination problems, behavior problems, chronic abdominal pain or headaches, adolescent issues, development delay and children with special health needs, school underachievement, and mental health ailments such as ADHD, depression, mood instability and anxiety. He believes in using the simplest and least expensive remedy to recovery without medicalizing patients or making them feel over-dependent on the health care system in the use of tests, medicine or procedures. He has the experience to recognize when the severity of problems may require sub-specialist care.
