Dr. Daniel Snowden’s dental practice has changed hands, according to an Arkansas City Area Chamber of Commerce press release.

“Dr. Benjamin Pieper, along with his wife, Jamie, and their four children are thrilled to have made their way (back) to Kansas,” the release states.

“It is our mission at Riverstone Family Dental to provide high-quality, affordable, gentle dentistry using the latest in technology and modern convenience. We consider our patients our family. We offer payment plans, accept many insurances, offer an in-house dental plan, convenient hours Monday through Friday, and have TVs in every treatment room.”

Pieper was raised in a small ranching town in western Wyoming and is the eldest of nine children.

He grew up milking cows, raising chickens and pigs, and spending time in the mountains fishing and hunting.

Pieper spent two years as a missionary in northern Peru, where he learned Spanish, which he enjoys the opportunity to practice.

He received his doctorate of dental medicine from Midwestern University in Glendale, Ariz., and has been practicing dentistry in Oklahoma as an associate and managing clinical director.

Pieper “is excited to relocate to his wife’s home state of Kansas,” the release states.

He and his family enjoy being together, exploring, hiking, biking, running, traveling and trying anything new.

“The family is excited to be in Ark City and carry on the Snowdens’ legacy of excellence,” the release states.
