KEN BANKS, DDSDr. Ken Banks

Dr. Ken Banks is the founder and Chief Tea Designer of Dr. B’s Beverages, which was established in 2010. A family owned and operated business Dr. B’s operates with one primary focus, healthy beverages made by health professionals.

Graduating from the West Virginia University School of Dentistry was just the beginning of Dr. Banks education and desire to make a difference. He became the first dentist in the state of West Virginia to become accredited with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. He served in the WV Air National Guard for 29 years and retired as a Lt. Colonel. He is currently on the Board of Director with Farmers and Mechanics Ins. Co. and is active with non-profit groups in his local area. Ken believes we need to roll our sleeves up, do our best always, live with integrity and touch people’s lives along the way.

Having a shared vision and passion for health and healthy products with his family is the greatest company benefit. Ken’s daughter Sarah Langford, a dental hygienist, and his son Christopher, the younger Dr. B, collaborate and set the direction for Doc’s Tea. It is the right beverage at the right time, “It’s Just What the Doctor Ordered”.
