Hello Monroe! Welcome back to the ongoing dental health blog of the Bayou Dental Group. Normally, we like to use this forum to highlight our different restorative and cosmetic procedures available at our comfortable and modern office. After all, remaking our patients smiles is one of our favorite things to do.

But today we want change things up just a bit. In this post we want to highlight Dr. David Finley. Dr. Finley is a very modest man, but he’s changing the face of dentistry here in Monroe, LA! Dr. Finley’s patient-centered care has truly transformed him into one of Monroe’s great community leaders.

When he’s not improving patients’ smiles here in our office, you can find Dr. Finley involved in various roles and volunteering around the community. Dr. Finley’s wife Valeria also performs charity work. Mrs. Finely serves an active advocate for the Cancer Foundation League.

Dr. Finley often leads the rest of our top-notch dental team in participating in different charity walks and races. Dr. Finley enjoys these events as way to stay active and healthy, as well as a well to raise money for many important causes.

In addition to his charity work, Dr. Finley also loves to take a leadership role in the community by coaching youth sports. For the last fifteen years, Dr. Finley has been coaching a youth baseball team. Dr. Finley loves working with children and helping to mold them into the future leaders of our community. Many of our patients here at Bayou Dental Group were once coached by Dr. Finley.

Dr. Finley and Mrs. Finley believe charity-work and volunteer activities are a way for them to give back to the community. They believe in investing in people to help make our community stronger. There is no place this is more evident than at Bayou Dental group.

Through Dr. Finley’s leadership, all of our staff is committed to treating you like a family member rather than just a patient. We will always listen to your concerns and do our best to address them. We love answering questions to help make our patients more involved in their oral health. During treatment, we will always go out of our way to make sure you are comfortable.

In addition to providing a personal touch, Dr. Finley is also committed to using the latest in dental technology. Dentistry has come a long way in recent decades; our use of the state-of-the-art technology helps us provide our patients with a more comfortable experience.

We are proud to offer advanced dental care like same-day CEREC crowns. Dental crowns are an extremely important part of restorative dentistry. Dental crowns repair a damaged or decayed tooth, and restore full-form and function to the tooth. In the past, dental crowns took multiple appointments to apply because the crown was made in an outside dental lab. Now, we can produce the crowns in our office and restore your decayed or damaged tooth in a single appointment!

Although we are well-versed in the latest dental technology, Dr. Finely backs it up with a wealth of experience. Dr. Finley has been improving lives by restoring smiles for nearly three decades. Dr. Finley holds fellowships in American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and Academy of General Dentistry. He is one of less than 30 dentists in the world to hold both fellowships! That means you can be certain you will be treated with world-class care and expertise at Bayou Dental Group in Monroe, LA.

We also have a special understanding for patients who are fearful or nervous about visiting the dentist. Millions of Americans suffer from some sort of dental phobia, so we have created a welcoming and comfortable environment. You can watch your favorite movies or listen to music and relax during your procedure.

We also perform sedation dentistry services for nervous or fearful patients. We provide both nitrous oxide sedation and oral conscious sedation. Nitrous oxide sedation is also known as laughing gas, you just breathe it and relax while we get to work. For longer treatments, we also provide oral sedation. We prescribe a sedative for you to take before your appointment then you just relax.
