78504 Dentist sydney

Sydney Benavides, RDH

Dentist McAllen

I was born and raised in McAllen, but left to College Station to complete my Bachelor’s Degree in Biomedical Science from Texas A&M University. Whoop! I graduated in 2010 and moved back to the valley to complete my Associates of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene in 2014. For nearly a decade, I’ve been striving to provide quality care and comfort for my patients. I love building new relationships and my goal has always been to keep everyone smiling! 

When I’m not in the office I enjoy golfing, and mountain biking with my husband Sam. I love to cook and will try any and every recipe and technique I can get my hands on. I enjoy aquariums and fish-keeping, and I’m a huge animal-lover!

We're Here for You!
