Edgewood Dentist Earns Prestigious Distinction in Dental Association

EDGEWOOD, KY--(Marketwired - May 27, 2015) - Dr. Kevin McMahon, an Edgewood, Ky., dental implant dentist, will receive the highest member status of an alumni association focused on dental implant continuing education and training.

Dr. McMahon, who practices at Edgewood Dental Care, will be named a Diplomate of the renowned International Dental Implant Association in July. This coveted honor is awarded to clinicians who have dedicated hundreds of hours to continuing education.

“This honor is exciting because it’s the most prestigious status members can achieve with the International Dental Implant Association,” Dr. McMahon said. “A recognition like this is also great for our practice because it shows the high level of training we all seek out in order to provide the most modern, up-to-date care.”

The International Dental Implant Association was founded in 2008 and has more than 2,500 active members from across the world. The alumni organization develops and facilitates continuing education programs on dental implants and works to educate the public about the benefits of dental implants.

The International Dental Implant Association has four different recognition levels: Member, Fellowship, Mastership and Diplomate. Diplomates of the International Dental Implant Association complete a minimum of 350 hours in continuing education and then another 150 hours in live-patient training.

Dr. McMahon uses dental implants in his practice to replace missing teeth or to stabilize dentures. He also provides bone grafting for patients who have had their jawbone deteriorate with the loss of their teeth.

“We’ve seen dental implants absolutely change people’s lives,” Dr. McMahon said. “Using dental implants, we can restore a mouth ravaged by decay or gum disease to give the patient a healthy and beautiful smile.”

Edgewood Dental Care offers general dentistry as well as sedation dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, gum disease treatment, dental implants, wisdom tooth removal, root canals and full orthodontics -- including traditional braces and Invisalign.

The practice uses cone beam computer tomography to take 3D images of patients’ mouths, oral cavity, jawbone and neck; intraoral cameras to take high-resolution images of patient’s teeth for education and diagnosis; CEREC technology to provide patients same-day crowns; LANAP laser technology to treat gum disease; IV sedation to treat fearful patients or patients in need of multiple dental treatments in one visit; and The Wand to deliver pain-free injections.

Edgewood Dental Care provides free coffee, drinks and healthy snacks to its patients and has amenities that will help keep patients comfortable during treatment.

Dr. McMahon earned his undergraduate and dental degree from the University of Kentucky and began Edgewood Dental Care in 1986. Dr. McMahon takes more than 100 hours of continuing education every year to offer his patients the highest quality of dentistry. Dr. McMahon runs Edgewood Dental Care alongside Drs. Daryl Peak, D.G. Gutman and Troy Kramer.
