The Dental Assistants

FDA’s dental assistants have all been certified as Expanded Duty Dental Assistants. This means they have completed a vigorous training regime and examination which allows them to do many tasks that ordinary dental assistants cannot, similar to a physician’s assistant in a medical office. They are an invaluable part of our team. We are proud to have these wonderfully talented EDDAs on our team!

They are experts in all aspects of the business of dentistry. They are an invaluable part of our team. We are proud to have these wonderfully talented business assistants on our team!


Kelly Ann Horsley

Kelly has been a personal friend of Dr. Greg and Terri Benanti for over 10 years. She has served as their Office Manager during that time at 3 different locations. One of the things she values most in this position is watching the transformation in a patient. Many times, patients will come to the dental office and they don't smile, they don't laugh, and they have high anxiety. Dr. Benanti and Dr. Herrick then begin to listen to the patient's story. The doctors learn what is important to the patient and they begin the process of changing the patient's smile. It's a great feeling to see a patient finish their treatment smiling, laughing, and their anxiety is gone. The end result of happiness for our patients is the best part of Kelly's job.


June Atherton

June joined the FDA team in 2012 and has 25 years of experience. She has a passion for helping people find their best smile!


Brooke Armstrong

Brooke joined the FDA team in early 2015. She graduated from Western Kentucky University in 2013.

Our History

Family Dental Associates (“FDA”) was founded over 50 years ago by Dr. Bill Penny, DMD, a dental visionary and community legend (they named our street after him!).

Dr. S. Gregory Benanti, DMD (“Dr. B”) assumed leadership of the practice in 1999 and has continued Bill’s vision: “Wowing” our patients so that they enjoy their time with us so much, they will not only come back, but they will tell their family and friends to come too.

As a result, Family Dental Associates (“FDA”) is the leading dental practice in the Louisville metro area. With 13 treatment rooms and over 12,000 patient records, we are known as the place to go for excellent dental care.

FDA offers the latest techniques in dental care including teeth whitening, tooth-colored fillings and crowns, porcelain veneers, non-surgical treatment of gum disease, Lumineers, implants, smile makeovers, and snap-on smiles.

At Family Dental Associates, we treat our patients like family. You will receive the utmost care and consideration in every phase of treatment.

When it comes to your oral health, you can count on Family Dental Associates to brighten your day and smile.
