Louisville cosmetic family dentist Dr. Ronald Receveur is urging young, less educated and less affluent pregnant women to reverse a disturbing trend announced in a recent report.

According to the report, pregnant women younger than 24, black and Hispanic women, and women with low family income or low education report their teeth to be in good condition far less often than other demographics, researchers found.

People whose teeth are not in good condition are prone to gum disease, and gum disease is linked to numerous other diseases, Dr. Receveur said.

“Especially for pregnant women, gum disease is linked to premature birth and low birth weight,” Dr. Receveur said.

The report showed that women from higher family incomes and higher education were more likely to go to the dentist for preventive visits.

Dr. Receveur encouraged all women to visit the dentist when they find out they are pregnant. He said his knowledgeable and patient staff also can help those concerned about the costs find a payment solution to meet their needs, including some that are interest-free.

Dr. Receveur, who practices in New Albany, Ind., across the Ohio River from Louisville, Ky., offers Louisville cosmetic dentistry services and general dentistry such as teeth cleanings, X-rays, fillings, extractions, root canals, crowns, teeth whitening and veneers.

Dr. Receveur also has vast experience with All on 4 dental implants, All on Six dental implants, mini dental implants, One Day Smile Solution, dental implants in one hour, bone grafting and sinus lifts, all with IV sedation dentistry. He has been restoring implants with prosthetics and complex dentistry for 25 years and surgically placing implants since 2008 at his dental implant clinic.

Dr. Receveur offers a five-year warranty on all cosmetic and prosthetic work.

Dr. Receveur, a New Albany native, has been the family dentist of choice for Southern Indiana and Louisville since 1981.

Dr. Receveur was born with a partial cleft palate that left him with a missing front tooth. As a child he “wore an awful removable partial.” As a teenager, Dr. Receveur received a permanent bridge, but his dentist destroyed one of his healthy, natural teeth in the process. These dental experiences helped drive him to find better dental solutions for his patients.

Dr. Receveur graduated from Indiana University Southeast with honors in chemistry, after which he earned his doctorate in Dental Surgery from the Indiana University School of Dentistry.

Dr. Receveur has attended more than 5,000 hours of postgraduate training and even gone to Portugal to study with the best dentists in the world. He has been awarded numerous advanced certifications in Implant, Sedation, Comprehensive, Restorative and Aesthetic dentistry so he may provide the most current dental techniques to his Louisville and New Albany dental patients.

Dr. Receveur’s associate, Dr. Frederick, graduated from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry. He has received additional training in cosmetic dentistry, endodontics (root canals), orthodontics and dental implants at the Midwest Implant Institute, and has completed dental sedation training.

Dr. Frederick was a dental lab technician before receiving his DMD. That gives him unique knowledge in cosmetic dentistry elements like crowns, bridges, veneers and smile design.

Dr. Frederick is a graduate of the University of Kentucky, where he was a member of the men’s soccer team and received his Bachelor of Science in Biology. He graduated high school from St. Xavier in Louisville.
