For many people, going to the dentist can be a little bit scary. Let's face it, we all feel a little bit vulnerable sitting there with our mouths open, unable to speak. Neglect of oral hygiene has been scientifically proven to cause more health issues than teeth and gum related illness. Heart disease is closely related to oral hygiene. This is why it is important to choose a dentist who makes you feel comfortable, increases your knowledge about your oral health, and is able to possibly detect and prevent other underlying health issues.

Is My Dentist Right For Me?

The best way to know if you are going to the right dentist is to ask yourself honestly how often you are going. Time has a tendency to slip away in our busy lives, and before you know it, a year has passed since your last exam. The American Dental Association recommends that adults go to the dentist twice a year for an exam, a cleaning, and x-rays. Dr. Frances Chauvin and her staff at Bendel Family Dentistry want to be your dentist for life. We take pride in our flexibility to work with patients to create a dental plan that fits their schedule, their budget, and their goals.

Does Bendel Family Dentistry Accept Insurance?

We accept most dental insurance, including the Lafayette Parish School System and Diocese DINA plans. We also offer our patients complimentary benefits checks. Simply call our front desk and tell us what kind of insurance you have, and we will let you know up front exactly what your insurance does and doesn't cover.

Does Bendel Family Dentistry Treat Children?

Our office is a whole family dental clinic. We see patients as young as one year old, and we will continue to treat you and your children through all stages of adulthood.
