Grand Junction Dentist Discusses Dental Implants on Popular TV Healthcare Program

GRAND JUNCTION, CO--(Marketwired - October 28, 2014) - Dr. Eric Benefield, who offers affordable dental implants at his practice Grand Dental, recently recorded a 30-minute interview for "The Wellness Hour," a popular television program that regularly features leaders in healthcare.

In the segment hosted by The Wellness Hour Inc. CEO Randy Alvarez, Dr. Benefield discusses the benefits of dental implants for patients who are living with uncomfortable removable dentures. The show segment is entitled, "No More Dentures."

"The Wellness Hour" has hosted some the biggest names in healthcare and even New York Times bestselling authors.

Dr. Benefield explains in the segment the cosmetic and health benefits of switching from slippery removable dentures to implant-supported dentures. At Grand Dental, Dr. Benefield can provide patients with permanent, non-removable teeth by placing All On Four dental implants or convert traditional dentures to implant-supported dentures.

"This program answers a lot questions about the different types of dental implants and dentures," said Dr. Benefield, who offers Grand Junction teeth in a day. "I've always been amazed by how people in our community are living with uncomfortable dentures. Our goal is to provide solutions that can improve the patient's quality of life and to restore their chewing ability so they can enjoy the foods they love."
