  • “ I have had the best experience with Dr. Domingue and his staff! He's kind, professional, and is extremely involved with every aspect of the patient care. His staff is one of the friendliest I have ever met. They don't only work in your mouth, they form real professional relationships. Dr. Domingue recently told me he was going to work with my time because, "you are way busier than I am". What a humble statement! I was so impressed when he recently shared that he was going on a mission trip to serve in Mexico. I think he is a gift to the lafayette community, and everyone needs to know.”

Do Not Throw Your Health Away

Preventive Dentistry Lafayette LAWhether you pay for your benefits or your employer covers your health and dental expenses, your dental benefits, including your dental insurance as well as your flex benefits, are all part of your salary package. When you fail to make and keep preventive medical or dental appointments, you are not only putting your heath at risk, but also throwing away your hard-earned money.

Dental insurance companies are in the business of making a profit. The way they do that is by having people pay in more than they pay out. That means that the less you use your insurance benefits, the more you are just paying for others to have dental care while your teeth suffer. The less you use your dental insurance, the greater profit that goes to the insurance company. 

You can incur additional health expenses by not having regular dental visits. Even maintaining regular appointments such as dental exams and professional cleanings can help to prevent some of the most common dental conditions such as decay and periodontal disease, both of which come from lack of dental care. Additionally, both conditions tend to worsen over time, creating more discomfort and expense as time goes on.

Nearly half of all Americans do not go to the dentist on a regular basis, even though poor oral health has been linked to serious medical conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and certain types of cancer.

Do not throw your money or your health away by skipping your regular dental appointments. Even if you don’t have dental insurance, your regular care is a valuable investment in the future of your teeth, oral health, and overall health.
