San Antonio Dental Patients Save Big With New In-House Dental Plan

SAN ANTONIO, TX —(Marketwired – February 29, 2016) – Tired of paying high dental insurance premiums? Advanced Dental Associates, a San Antonio dental practice, is in the first year of a new membership plan that has no deductibles, no maximums per year and allows patients to bypass dental insurance companies.

The Advanced Dental Associates In House Membership Plan covers a broad spectrum of services with one flat discount and is available to any patient. The idea of the plan is to give patients without dental insurance access to affordable dental care.

“With the introduction of Advanced Dental Associates In House Membership Plan, we're experiencing that more patients are accepting the dental care they need. And by accepting the dental care they need, we are improving patients overall health,” said Dr. Edwards, who operates Advanced Dental Associates. “It's been a great service for patients who would have otherwise neglected dental procedures or had to pay the full price out of pocket.”

Patients can sign up for Advanced Dental Associates' new in–house dental plan without delay and need no pre–authorization. There are no limitations for pre–existing conditions, and the staff provides free consultations.

Those involved in Advanced Dental Associates In House Membership Plan receive a 15 percent discount on preventive care, diagnostics, restorative care, oral surgery and periodontal treatment. All–on–4 dental implants and teeth–whitening are not covered in the plan.

Dr. Edwards said the practice's case acceptance has increased since adding the new plan in May 2015.

“Patients appreciate that we have eliminated the hassle of dealing with insurance companies. With our plan, patients know exactly what they need to pay,” Dr. Edwards said.

Advanced Dental Associates, 16131 Nacogdoches Rd., has served the San Antonio community for more than 35 years through general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, oral and IV sedation, tooth extractions, TMJ treatment, sleep apnea appliances and dental implants. Advanced Dental Associates places dental implants to replace missing teeth or to stabilize dentures. Using the revolutionary All–on–4 dental implant procedure, Advanced Dental Associates can provide quality solutions for patients struggling with uncomfortable removable dentures. Patients with missing teeth often fail to receive proper nutrition because removable dentures do not have the biting force of dental implants or natural teeth. By placing dental implants, Advanced Dental Associates can restore a patient's chewing force and preserve the jawbone.

Dr. Edwards, a San Antonio native, earned his undergraduate degree from Baylor University in 1981 and then his dental degree from the University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston in 1986. Before purchasing Advanced Dental Associates in 2001, Dr. Edwards owned two other private practices.

Dr. Edwards practices with Dr. Lauren Malitz and Dr. Roberto Villarreal. The practice also added Dr. Craig Long in May 2015.

Chapel Hill Dentist Expands Practice by Opening New Location

CHAPEL HILL, NC—(Marketwired – February 29, 2016) –  Dr. Dinah Vice, a longtime dentist in Chapel Hill, has opened another Sunrise Dental location in Cary with weekend hours and comprehensive dental care.

Sunrise's Dental new location, 1223 Parkside Main St., officially opened December 2015 and has convenient weekday and weekend hours. The office offers complete dental care, including general dentistry, teeth whitening services, veneers, dental implants, Invisalign treatment and even sleep apnea treatments.

“Over the years, we've had so many of our patients come from Cary, so we're happy to have a location that is both modern and convenient,” said Dr. Vice, who operates Sunrise Dental. “Our patients can expect the excellence and high quality of care they've come to enjoy at any other Sunrise Dental location.”

The new Sunrise Dental location is open until 7 p.m. from Monday through Thursday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Cary office is the only Sunrise Dental location that is open on Saturdays.

Dr. Laura Azzu and Dr. James Jorge are the two dentists practicing full–time at Sunrise Dental in Cary. Drs. Azzu and Jorge are trained in all aspects of general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry.

“The new location is a full–service dental office that welcomes patients of all ages and dental needs,” Dr. Vice said. “The office is state–of–the–art and includes comfortable amenities and operatories for our patients.”

Sunrise Dental locations are in Chapel Hill, Cary, Raleigh and Durham and each office has at least two doctors who provide timely, comprehensive care to patients of all ages. Dr. Vice started Sunrise Dental in 1985 and has eight associates. The dental team at Sunrise Dental is trained in preventive dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, sedation dentistry, restorative dentistry, root canal therapy, gum disease treatment, Invisalign, dental implants, TMJ and headache relief and sleep apnea treatments.

The staff of Sunrise Dental is focused on using technology to achieve precise and aesthetic results. The practice uses a cone beam computed tomography scanner to diagnose dental problems and to plan out restorative and cosmetic treatments. The scanner provides 3–D images of the teeth, jawbone and oral cavity, and even exposes the tiny vessels and nerves.

One of the biggest advantages of the CBCT is that it can be used in planning and placing dental implants. Dental implants and mini dental implants nearly mimic the power of natural teeth and can be restored with individual crowns or dentures.

Dr. Vice has worked in dentistry for more than 30 years. She got interested in dentistry because she struggled with crooked teeth as a child. She entered the dental hygiene program at Ohio State University in 1970 and started working professionally in 1972. She later earned her dental degree from the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry in 1984. After dental school, Dr. Vice decided to stay in Chapel Hill and opened up the first Sunrise Dental location in 1985.

Two of Dr. Vice's children, Dr. Dirk Vice and Dr. Esther Vice–Hanson, are associates at Sunrise Dental.

To sign up as a new patient with Sunrise Dental or to view a smile gallery of the practice's dental creations, visit the website at www.dinahvice–sunrisedental.com or call the Cary office today at 919–902–5121.

Lexington Dental Practice Adds New General Dentist

LEXINGTON, KY —(Marketwired – February 29, 2016) – Beaumont Family Dentistry, a leading Lexington family dental office, has added a new dentist trained in all aspects of general dentistry.

Dr. Kyle Ashley Golibersuch, a Lexington native, recently received her dental license after graduating from the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry. Before dental school, Dr. Golibersuch attended Clemson University and graduated from University of Kentucky's College of Agriculture.

“I'm excited and eager to have joined one of the best dental teams in the Lexington area that offers patients such comprehensive care,” Dr. Golibersuch said. “It's very rewarding to help a patient get out of pain or to give someone a smile they never thought they could have.” Dr. Golibersuch is trained to render both preventive and restorative treatments for patients of all ages. In addition to continuing her dental training, she is interested in pediatric dental care, assisting patients with special needs and endodontics — a special branch of dentistry that deals with tooth root problems.

Dr. Golibersuch is part of a dental team that offers pain–free fillings using the special tool DIAGNOdent. She spends time with each patient to discuss best oral health practices and to develop strategic and personalized oral health plans.

“As a dentist, I see my role as both a physician and a teacher,” Dr. Golibersuch said. “As much as I love treating patients, I'm just as happy discussing ways patients can maintain their smile with great at–home care.”

Beaumont Family Dentistry's three locations offer comprehensive care in general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, implant dentistry, orthodontics, laser dentistry, pediatric dentistry, periodontics, endodontics and sleep apnea treatment. Individual services include cleanings and exams, oral cancer screenings, crowns, bridges, veneers, Lumineers, full–mouth reconstructions, oral and IV sedation, dentures, sleep apnea appliances, Invisalign, Fastbraces, CEREC same–day crowns and dental implants.

Beaumont Family Dentistry has provided quality dentistry to Lexington residents for more than 30 years. The large Lexington dental team of 50 staff members consists of extensively trained doctors, hygienists, assistants and front office staff, many of whom have been with the practice for more than 15 years.

Each of Beaumont Family Dentistry's three locations is equipped with CEREC same–day crown technology. Using CEREC, Beaumont Family Dentistry dentists can prepare and restore teeth with natural–looking porcelain crowns in just one day.

Dr. Takacs credits her grandfather, who was a dentist, for influencing her career path. She attended West Virginia University and was accepted into dental school after her junior year. She went on to graduate from the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry with high honors in 1983. Before attending dental school, she worked in a dental office in Vienna and Williamstown, WV.

Dr. Takacs is a Master Affiliate for Fastbraces. The short–term orthodontic treatment Fastbraces is designed to reduce orthodontic treatment time from two to three years to three months to a year. Invisalign uses clear aligners that gradually straighten teeth. The treatment is virtually invisible, and the aligners can be easily removed for eating and cleaning.

Dr. Takacs has advanced training from the Spear Learning Continuum and has completed a mini residency in sleep medicine at Tufts University. She holds memberships with the American Dental Association, Kentucky Dental Association, American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, American Academy of Craniofacial Pain, Bluegrass Dental Society, Dental Organization of Conscious Sedation, Academy of Computerized Dentistry, Academy of Gp Orthodontics and Academy of Laser Dentistry.

Monroe Dentist Celebrates Children's Dental Health Awareness

MONROE, LA —(Marketwired – February 29, 2016) – The dental hygiene department of Bayou Dental Group visited several local elementary schools in February to teach children about the importance of home oral health care.

February is National Children's Dental Health Month, and this year's program is called “Sugar Wars.” Bayou Dental Group met with local students to discuss best oral health practices, provide toothbrushes and dental floss and share facts about the dangers of cavity–causing foods. “Our staff loves getting out in the community, especially when it means getting involved with children's dental health,” said Dr. David Finley, who operates Bayou Dental Group. “A healthy smile means a healthier life, and we're very adamant about educating the children in this community and offering state–of–the–art preventive care.”

Tooth decay is the number one chronic disease in children, and about 25 percent of children from the ages of 2 to 5 have untreated cavities. Dr. Finley is a certified pediatric dentist who recommends that parents bring in their young ones for visits by the age of 1 — or six months after the first tooth pops in.

During a child's first dental visit, Dr. Finley will provide a thorough examination of the teeth, gums and mouth. When the child gets older, Bayou Dental Group will provide light cleanings and polishings. Dr. Finley said bringing children to the dentist early in their life reduces the risk of dental fear or extensive dental treatments in the future.

“We love seeing children in our office because we can coordinate their dental health from an early age,” Dr. Finley said. “When young kids are in the dental office, they also feel more comfortable with the dentist later in their life.”

Bayou Dental Group offers preventive dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, pediatrics, endodontics, sedation dentistry and dental implant surgery. The dental practice provides some of the best cosmetic dentistry in the Monroe area, as well as root canals and state–of–the–art dental implants. Dr. Finley uses cone beam imaging technology for implant placement.

Dr. Finley has taken hundreds of hours in continuing education and is the 61st Fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry. There are fewer than 30 dentists in the world who hold both fellowships. He has been voted as one of America's Top Dentists by the Consumer Research Council of America every year since 2003.

Dr. Finley's connection to Monroe and the surrounding community stretches back to his years growing up there. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Northeast Louisiana University and then graduated from the Louisiana State University School of Dentistry in 1985. He is one of the first dentists in Louisiana to be certified in laser treatment by the World Clinical Laser Institute.

Dr. Finley views dentistry as an art and is the only dentist to have earned medals five years in a row at the annual American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry smile gallery competition. He has published cases in the Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry and has written articles for the Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry and for the publication of the Louisiana Academy of General Dentistry.

The National Children's Dental Health Month is held every February and focuses on educating children about the importance of proper oral hygiene and the dangers of cavities. Tooth decay is the leading chronic disease in children around the world. This year's slogan is “Sugar Wars.”

“We are spending the entire month educating children about the adverse effects sugar can have on their teeth,” said Dr. Britly Barton of Shorewood Family Dental Care. “This is a great month for us because we get to see children outside of the office to remind them about the importance of at–home oral hygiene.”

Throughout the month of February, Dr. Barton has visited local schools to educate children about proper brushing and flossing. The doctor and staff of Shorewood Family Dental Care handed out toothbrushes and floss.

Dr. Barton said the staff uses the annual program to share information about oral health but also to spend some time with youngsters outside of the dental office.

“By getting out in the community and showing these children a different side of us, we're hoping to make them more comfortable with the dentist,” Dr. Barton said. “While home care is of the highest importance, we still need patients, young and old, to maintain regular dental visits to ensure their mouth is healthy.”

Belleville Dentist Hires New Front Desk Employee

BELLEVILLE, IL—(Marketwired – February 29, 2016) –  Dr. Thomas Feder, a leading provider of dental implants, has added a new front office employee with years of experience scheduling treatments and working with dental insurance companies.

The new staff member, Maria, recently joined Dr. Feder's practice earlier this month. She has extensive experience working in dental offices and will help patients with insurance and scheduling questions. Dr. Feder said Maria fits in well with the dental staff at Thomas Feder, DDS and puts the patients' needs first.

“We were excited to start working with Maria from nearly the moment we met her. She immediately fit in with our office attitude, family and culture,” Dr. Feder said. “It's important for us to have the most knowledgeable and helpful staff, and we feel Maria more than meets that criteria.”

Dr. Feder said that one of Maria's greatest strengths is her experience working with dental insurance companies and helping patients get the most out of their dental coverage.

“Dealing with insurance companies can be a real headache for patients, so we're proud to have someone like Maria on staff who understands how to follow through on dental claims and help patients use the most of their dental benefits,” Dr. Feder said. “It helps us give the patient the affordable dental care they deserve.”

Dr. Feder's Belleville dental practice, at 16 N. Jackson St., has seven dental chairs, digital X–rays and TVs in each room for patient comfort.

Dr. Feder has been in practice for more than 40 years, providing general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry. He was inspired to become a dentist by his father and great uncle, both of whom were Illinois dentists.

Dr. Feder's office offers cleanings, exams, fillings, teeth whitening, crowns, bridges, root canals, extractions, dentures and dental implant restorations. He uses a revolutionary tool called the Vibraject to give pain–free injections to patients. The Vibraject sends out vibrations to distract the brain from feeling pain in the area of the injection. The vibration also allows for the anesthesia to take effect quickly.

Dr. Feder graduated from the St. Louis University School of Dentistry in 1970. He served three years with the U.S. Public Health Service, two of which he was assigned to the U.S. Coast Guard. He has been in private practice since 1973.

Phoenix Dentist Offering New Noninvasive Technique for Gum Recession

PHOENIX, AZ—(Marketwired – February 29, 2016) –  Are your gums getting smaller and smaller? Dr. Thomas Mattern, a dentist trained in placing dental implants, has undergone training to provide a new technique to repair gum recession with virtually no post–operative discomfort.

The new training, known as The Chao Pinhole™ Surgical Technique, is a method dentists use to move the gums into a position that covers more of the tooth's crown. The technique has become a welcomed alternative to traditional gum surgery, as it does not require the use of scalpels and sutures.

“We're excited for this new technique to begin aiding patients in pain reduction and faster surgery time,” Dr. Mattern said. “This can benefit any patient, from kids after completing their ortho treatments to elderly patients who are dealing with gum recession.”

Dr. Mattern recently attended training in Alhambra, California, with Dr. John Chao, an internationally known dentist who developed his own pinhole surgery method. The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique puts a small pinhole in the gum tissue and gradually moves the gums into a more appropriate position. Once the gums are in place, the doctor places collagen strips to stabilize the gums.

Gum recession can be caused by gum disease, hormonal changes in the body or even hard brushing. When the gums recede, the root of the tooth becomes exposed to harmful bacteria and cavities, increasing the risk of tooth loss.

Traditional gum recession surgery uses gum grafts and then stabilizes the gums with sutures. Dr. Mattern said patients who receive the pinhole technique experience little to no post–treatment sensitivity.

“It's amazing to have a technique that simplifies a treatment that historically has been extremely invasive,” Dr. Mattern said. “By increasing the comfort of the treatment, we can encourage more patients to address their gum recession problems before the issue causes irreparable damage.”

Desert Dentistry is a multi–office practice that offers general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, dental implants, mini dental implants, short–term orthodontics, sleep apnea treatment, same–day emergency services and TMJ treatment.

Dr. Mattern is a 1988 graduate of Creighton University School of Dentistry and has taken hours of continuing education to provide his patients quality, state–of–the–art care. Dr. Mattern completed the Las Vegas Institute of Cosmetology program and holds a Fellowship with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. Dr. Mattern also has been voted the Best Dentist in East Valley and the Best Dentist in Ahwatukee.

He holds memberships with the Academy of General Dentistry, American Dental Association, International Dental Implant Association and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. Dr. Mattern takes pride in contributing to his community in many ways by working with St. Vincent de Paul's dental clinic every month, working with Give Kids A Smile and flying to Atoyac, Mexico, to work in the Latin World Ministries dental clinic for the less fortunate.

Desert Dentistry's four convenient locations offer patients free dental exams and X–rays during initial visits and provide affordable care options.
