New Albany Dental Implant Clinic Participates in Children's Dental Health Awareness Month

NEW ALBANY, IN--(Marketwired - March 31, 2015) - A dental hygienist from Dr. Ronald Receveur's New Albany dental practice visited local elementary schools in February to teach students about good oral hygiene.

The New Albany dental office reached out to the area schools as part of National Children's Dental Health Month. Crystal, a staff dental hygienist, gave short presentations at the schools on oral health, healthy eating habits and provided fun activities to show students the importance of keeping their teeth clean and healthy.

Crystal has been a dental hygienist at Dr. Receveur's dental implant clinic for more than three years. She takes a special interest in educating patients about the connection between their oral and overall health.

Tooth decay is the leading chronic disease in children. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that parents bring their children to the dentist as soon as the first tooth appears -- or by the age of 2 years old. It's estimated that 17 million children in America go without dental care every year. The intent of National Children's Dental Health Month is to teach children proper oral health care so they can avoid major dental issues in the future. Dr. Receveur's practice, 819 Mount Tabor Road, provides preventive treatments that can help children and adults keep their teeth healthy for a lifetime.

"We're always excited whenever we can teach children about the importance of oral health care. By getting children into a good routine as young as possible, we can hopefully save them the trouble of having to have major dental work down the road," Dr. Receveur said.

Dr. Receveur, who practices in New Albany, Ind., across the Ohio River from Louisville, Ky., offers 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, 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.

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.
