New Albany Dentist Enrolls in IV Sedation Training

NEW ALBANY, IN--(Marketwired - March 31, 2015) - Dr. Brad Frederick, a talented New Albany dentist, is undergoing extensive training to expand his services to include IV sedation.

Dr. Frederick, Dr. Ronald Receveur's associate, is training at Duquesne University in Pittsburg, Pa., to earn his IV sedation certification. IV sedation is a heavy form of sedation dentistry used for fearful dental patients or for patients who need complex dental procedures.

"IV sedation is a total game-changer in dentistry. It lets us complete full-mouth reconstructions in one visit, and it ensures that the patient will have an anxiety-free and pain-free visit to our office," Dr. Frederick said.  

Dr. Receveur's office provides three forms of sedation: nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation and IV sedation. Nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, is a mild form of sedation that relaxes patients once they're in the dental chair. Oral conscious sedation, which is rendered in pill-form, is given to patients before their dental visits.

Dr. Receveur and Dr. Frederick have completed complex full-mouth reconstructions using oral conscious sedation, but the treatment is not as predictable as IV sedation. IV sedation works instantly and can be monitored and altered easily by the health care professional overseeing the treatment.

"Because IV sedation works instantly, we don't have to worry about the medicine wearing off in the middle of your treatment," Dr. Frederick said.

Dr. Frederick is a graduate of the University of Louisville School of Dentistry and has training in orthodontics and implant dentistry. 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.

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. He has received training in cosmetic dentistry, endodontics (root canals), orthodontics and dental implants at the Midwest Implant Institute.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. He places more than 500 dental implants every year.

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.
