Poor dental health is a silent epidemic in the U.S. and a trigger for serious health problems

Dental insurance is quickly becoming obsolete among American households. Numerous factors account for this including decreased wages, employee benefits disappearing, and insurance premiums on the rise. This, in essence, means that trips to dentist are in decline as well. This poses a serious risk to the oral hygiene in many American families which could lead to greater health risks in the future.

In 2013, Dr. Benefield will be continuing “My Personal Dentist,” a membership program that gives patients all their dental care for only $900/year, equal to $75/month. Dr. Benefield is looking forward to providing exceptional oral health care for those making healthy new years resolutions. ”My Personal Dentist” includes all appropriate dental hygiene services and all dental treatment/procedures, with the exception of orthodontics, dental implants, and cosmetic dentistry. Patients will be limited to 6 major procedures a year. It simply includes Everything Else! One crown is one major procedure. A bridge that spans three teeth equals three major procedures. Each patient's treatment plan is unique and will be based entirely on their personal needs.

“Poor dental health is a silent epidemic in the U.S. and a trigger for serious health problems," says Professor David Neal, Professor of Psychology at the University of Southern California (From Empirica Research).

While some dentists may hope for the best, Dr. Eric Benefield is taking a completely new approach to dental care for his patients. Dr. Benefield has been providing amazing dental service to his patients for more than 10 years now. His work speaks for itself and his patients will attest to his professionalism and quality. Dr. Benefield has seen a decline of individuals pursuing good oral health in this community and is taking drastic measures to ensure that everyone has access to affordable dental health care.

For those with insurance, “My Personal Dentist” is fully compatible with most PPO insurance plans. This program is specifically designed for those that want affordable dental healthcare throughout the year.
