Meet Dr. Benjamin Hite


I really enjoy being a dentist. I like getting to know my patients and creating a caring relationship with them. It’s important to me that my patients are comfortable with me and my staff, and enjoy coming here for their visits.

I listen to my patients, and make sure I understand their needs and concerns. It’s always my goal to exceed my patients’ expectations.

For Dr. Wally Osika’s Former Patients

I am looking forward to meeting each of you. I know you all will miss Dr. Osika now that he has retired. Dr. Osika cared deeply for his patients and would never have sold his practice to anyone he didn’t completely trust to provide you with the best possible care.

Dr. Osika and I have become good friends in this transition and have discussed our philosophies on patient care. He is excited about the new dental technologies I have brought to the practice to improve your experience and care. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please call or discuss with me on your next visit. I sincerely look forward to being your dentist.

Personal & Family

I live in the Edwardsville/Glen Carbon community with my wife, Beth, and our three kids, Nolan, Brynna, and Braelyn. Beth has an Orthodontic practice in Edwardsville, BauerHite Orthodontics. We love this community and enjoy being a part of it.
