Most dental insurance plans force patients to ‘use it or lose it’ when it comes to their dental benefits," Dr. Ronald Receveur said.
New Albany, IN (PRWEB) November 20, 2014
Out of the mountain of tasks during the holiday season – buying gifts, shoveling snow and basting turkey – scheduling a dental appointment often doesn’t make the to-do list. But it is an important item to consider, according to a New Albany dental implants expert.
Many patients with dental insurance have benefits that will expire at the end of the year, and it’s not too late to schedule a visit before those dollars are lost for good.
“Most dental insurance plans force patients to ‘use it or lose it’ when it comes to their dental benefits. Our patients work hard to pay for their dental insurance policies, and we want to see them get every bit of benefit they deserve,” said New Albany dentist Dr. Ronald Receveur.
Dr. Receveur said many patients who have outstanding dental issues aren’t aware that they will lose unused benefits at the end of the year.
“For patients with dental work that needs to be completed, using as much of their available benefit as possible is very important,” Dr. Receveur said. “We want our patients to take full advantage of the benefits they deserve so they can maintain their oral health.”
Dr. Receveur, who provides a One Day Smile Solution, encourages patients to call and schedule their dental procedures before the end of the year. The staff at his office will work with patients to schedule dental appointments around busy holiday schedules.
Dr. Receveur, who practices in New Albany, Ind., across the Ohio River from Louisville, Ky., offers Louisville dental cosmetics 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 New Albany cosmetic dental 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 New Albany and Louisville 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.
