A Brighter, Whiter Smile Doesn't Have to Be A Pain In The Mouth

If you talk to a lot of people who have elected to professionally whiten their teeth, many of them may tell you that it is extremely painful. With Glo Science Whitening kits, this doesn't to be the case. Between the fact that the whitening peroxide concentrate can open pores in your teeth that can lead to nerve pain, the gel can also cause rawness of the gums. Glo Science has virtually eliminated these problems because they listen to their customers and have formulated a whitening system that is pain free and effective.

Developed by a Dentist

Designed and invented by Dr. Jonathan Levine, one of New York City's top aesthetic dentists, Glo Science is backed by an actual dental professional who holds over 20 patents for products that help you to look and feel your best about your smile. Dr. Levine is a sought after public speaker, author, and inventor who has dedicated his entire career to helping his customers feel more beautiful and confident. Dr. Levine and Glo Science donate 10% of their annual profits to providing free, life-changing dental procedures to more than 4000 smiles and counting.

Backed By Acadiana Locals

Before we began selling Glo Science products, our own staff tried the products out on themselves. There is not only a professional in-office whitening kit, but a take home DIY kit as well. Our staff loved the ease of the applicator, the viscosity of the gel (which keeps it from dissolving prematurely), and most of all, the painless whitening that the products provided with maximum results and minimum sensitivity. Our patients have consistently returned to buy more Glo Science whitening gel from us because of its efficacy and ease of use.

To learn more about this product, you can visit the Glo website and listen to Dr. Levine talk about the development of this revolutionary whitening system. Bendel Family Dentistry has kits in stock, and you can just swing by our convenient Oil center location to pick yours up without an appointment.

One of the most common questions our potential patients ask us is "What do I have to do to switch from my current dentist to your office?" The short answer is simple. You don't have to do anything. Most dentists offices are going to start from scratch with their own file for you, so they will want to do a new set of x-rays, an examination, and if needed, a cleaning. Unlike a primary physician, we don't need to get your file from your previous dentist in most cases. 

Why Would You Switch Dentists?

There are several reasons why you may want to switch to a new dentist. One of the most obvious reasons would be if you have recently moved here from another city and need all new service providers. Another common reason for switching dentists is due to scheduling conflicts. Bendel Family Dentistry is one of a few Acadiana dental offices that are open for half days on Fridays, allowing busy parents to schedule late in the week. Patients can't always get in with their dentists, especially the smaller dental offices that only have one practitioner. One more reason you may want to switch dentists is insurance coverage changes. If you have a new job or dental plan that is not supported by your current dentist, you may need to find a new in-network dentist to save your hard earned money. Bendel Family Dentistry accepts most dental insurance plans, including LPSS and Diocese dental insurance for teachers. 

What's The Next Step to Switch Dentists? 

Switching dentists is as simple as picking up the phone. Dr. Frances Chauvin and her team at Bendel Family Dentistry are conveniently located in the heart of Lafayette. We have ample parking, a comfortable waiting room, and we provide all of or clients and potential clients with complimentary benefits checks with your insurance provider. There are no surprises, and our billing policies are straightforward and transparent. If you are looking for a new dentist for your entire family, look no further than Bendel Family Dentistry. We want to be your dentists for life!

At Bendel Family Dentistry, we understand the importance of choosing the right dentist. No two offices are exactly alike, and making this decision is often something that can impact your entire family. No matter your reason for searching for a new dentist, it is important to know the difference between General and Family Dentistry.

General Dentistry

The primary goal of General dentistry is it's orientation toward oral health and hygiene. While it is true that the primary objective of both types of dentist is to leave us with a healthy smile, a Family Dentist typically has extra training when dealing with children, while General Dentists service a market of all ages.

Family Dentistry Advantages

Think of a Family Dentist as a one-stop-shop for your entire family. When we say that we went to be your dentist for life, we know that many of our pediatric patients stay with us into adulthood and beyond. A Family Dentist has extra training in the department of pediatric oral care and how to help children feel comfortable throughout their dental hygiene processes.

Additionally, many general dentists have preferred age groups. If you have a 16 year old child and a 4 year old child, you may have to have two different dentists if one of them is a General Dentist. The added convenience of the entire family being able to schedule their appointments at once is often cited as a reason working families choose Family Dentists.

Family Dentists offer a variety of services to patients of all age, including x-rays, examinations, tooth cleanings, fillings, as well as specialized aesthetic procedures like tooth whitening and microdermabrasion of adolescent ridges for a straighter smile. Finally, Family Dentists offer a lifetime of support and education for your family members. An experienced Family Dentist can effectively teach an elder transitioning to dentures about oral care as well as a child learning to floss and brush correctly.

If you are looking for a new dentist, Dr. Frances Chauvin and her staff at Bendel Family Dentistry want to be your dentist for life.
