BELLEVILLE, IL --(Marketwired - February 29, 2016) - Dr. Thomas Feder, a leading provider of dental implants, has added a new front office employee with years of experience scheduling treatments and working with dental insurance companies.
The new staff member, Maria, recently joined Dr. Feder's practice earlier this month. She has extensive experience working in dental offices and will help patients with insurance and scheduling questions. Dr. Feder said Maria fits in well with the dental staff at Thomas Feder, DDS and puts the patients' needs first.
"We were excited to start working with Maria from nearly the moment we met her. She immediately fit in with our office attitude, family and culture," Dr. Feder said. "It's important for us to have the most knowledgeable and helpful staff, and we feel Maria more than meets that criteria."
Dr. Feder said that one of Maria's greatest strengths is her experience working with dental insurance companies and helping patients get the most out of their dental coverage.
"Dealing with insurance companies can be a real headache for patients, so we're proud to have someone like Maria on staff who understands how to follow through on dental claims and help patients use the most of their dental benefits," Dr. Feder said. "It helps us give the patient the affordable dental care they deserve."
Dr. Feder's Belleville dental practice, at 16 N. Jackson St., has seven dental chairs, digital X-rays and TVs in each room for patient comfort.
Dr. Feder has been in practice for more than 40 years, providing general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry. He was inspired to become a dentist by his father and great uncle, both of whom were Illinois dentists.
Dr. Feder's office offers cleanings, exams, fillings, teeth whitening, crowns, bridges, root canals, extractions, dentures and dental implant restorations. He uses a revolutionary tool called the Vibraject to give pain-free injections to patients. The Vibraject sends out vibrations to distract the brain from feeling pain in the area of the injection. The vibration also allows for the anesthesia to take effect quickly.
Dr. Feder graduated from the St. Louis University School of Dentistry in 1970. He served three years with the U.S. Public Health Service, two of which he was assigned to the U.S. Coast Guard. He has been in private practice since 1973. Dr. Feder earned his Fellowship recognition from the Academy of General Dentistry in 1982 and was voted one of America's Best Dentists in 2013 by the National Consumer Advisory Board.
Dr. Feder is committed to public service and spent 12 years on the Belle Valley School Board. To learn about Dr. Feder's Belleville family dentistry or the power of dental implants, visit his website at www.thomasjfeder.com or call 618-219-1412.
