Your child deserves the best care. Being able to understand kids and listen to parents is what a pediatrician does best and can make a difference in a child's life. Dr. Bennett always wanted to become a pediatrician. Her love of babies and children allows her to treat patients like family. Your kids are like one of her own.  Over the years she has built an unparalleled confidence and trust with her little patients and their families. Her families in NJ still miss her loving touch and we are happy to her here in the White Mountains.

After graduating from UMDNJ Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in 1991, Dr. Bennett built a practice in New Jersey for many years. She fell in love with the White Mountains and relocated here with her family four years ago to resume her excellent care of the local children where she felt she would be needed most.

Dr. Bennett became very involved with local community activities from the start. She is passionate about helping othersand has given her time freely for causes big and small.
