West River Dental in Detroit Lakes has a new dentist.

Dr. Ben Buntrock joined the staff in May after recently graduating from Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona.

A Driscoll, N.D. native, Buntrock is obtained his undergraduate degree from North Dakota State University.

He is a general dentist and says he's excited to be working at West River Dental.

"I really enjoy all of the technology that Dr. Jordan has here -- I really like working with all that," said Buntrock, who met Jordon while in college at NDSU.

"I worked at Scheels at the time, and I sold him a bow," laughed Buntrock, adding that he loves the hunting and fishing in this area.

Buntrock says he's spent a lot of time in the area, as his parents have a cabin on upper Cormorant Lake.

He now lives in Detroit Lakes.
