Dr. Bencaz and his entire staff are exceptional. They did not meet, but rather exceeded all of my family's expectations!! From doing everything they could to assist in getting our insurance to cover the cost of the dental work, to Dr Bencaz's awesome bedside manner, all we can say is that Bencaz Family Dentistry should be your only dental choice in Denham Springs. My wife needed extensive dental work, and was told by numerous dentist's that her teeth could not be saved. Dr Bencaz did what 2 other dentists said could not be done, and saved her teeth. Additionally, my wife is terrified to go to the dentist, and not only did he save her smile, he did so with her having no recollection of any part of the 5 hour long dental visit!! WE LOVE DR BENCAZ, AND ALL OF HIS CURTEOUS, HELPFUL, AND DEDICATED STAFF!!!

I love it. The staff is so nice and friendly. They are gentle with my precious teeth. Lol. I was carrying on a conversation with my and my moms dentist. They are always positive and sometimes encourenging. I'm not the kind of person who likes going to the dentist. I was always so scared just riding TO the dentist. Now, I'm always asking , anxiously waiting , and. HAPPY. _ _ (_)to go to the dentist.

Hood Dental Care
Recently had an annual check-up with Hood Dental at Watson location. Could not ask for better folks. The receptionist greeted me with a warm smile and was exceptionally helpful. My hygienist, Cheryl was a lovely young lady who executed the finest professionalism I've ever seen. She explained her every motion. Dr. Andrew Hood came in to explain additional care in a very caring manner. These people apparently enjoy their work!!!! Thanks to you all.

The Bencaz Family Dentistry office is awesome. My husband came in for a second opinion on some dental work that he was told he needed done and Dr. Bencaz gave him some options and took care of it the same day. Also he didn't have to miss any time at work. Great hours at their office Thanks!!!

Tips & Advices
While going to the orthodontist can be difficult, sometimes it's necessary. If you are concerned about tooth alignment, feel your jaw shift, or are experiencing problems like difficulty chewing or grinding your teeth, it's time to see an orthodontist.
There are generally three types of braces patients can be fitted for at the orthodontist:
  • The more traditional option, bands, wrap around most of a patient's tooth.
  • Brackets are the most popular, applied directly to the tooth in metal or plastic form.
  • Lingual braces are brackets attached to the back of teeth.
People of all ages can wear braces to straighten their teeth, but it is most common to be fitted for these adjustments between the ages of 10 and 14. This is the time when teeth are better able to be straightened because the head and mouth are still developing.
The American Board of Orthodontics recommends finding a dental specialist that is board-certified, offers free or reduced-price consultations, and displays qualities such as trustworthiness, ability to communicate effectively, and attentiveness.
Orthodontists must complete a four-year undergraduate program to gain admission to dental school. After earning a Doctor of Dental Science degree at an accredited four-year dental program, students must then either complete a post-degree training program or one to two years residency in orthodontics. Then they need to earn a state license in order to practice. Certain states also require board certification.
