LEXINGTON, KY – Dr. Patricia Takacs, a renowned Lexington cosmetic dentist, was included in a full-page USA Today feature about professional trendsetters across the country.
The America’s PremierExperts is an organization dedicated to giving consumers and journalists access to experts in a variety of industries, including dentistry and health care. The America’s PremierExperts Trendsetter list recognizes the leaders in those fields.
“We’re proud to be recognized by such an elite organization for our role in making our community a healthier place,” said Dr. Takacs, who operates Beaumont Family Dentistry. “The reason Beaumont Family Dentistry has become Lexington’s choice for great dental care is that we maintain a high level of excellence in our procedures and with our dental team.”
America’s PremierExperts does more than put out a list of industry leaders. It works as a consumer advocate to connect Americans with credible businesses and health care providers. The companies and business owners on the list are asked to provide their expertise and knowledge.
Dr. Takacs said part of her role as a dentist is to educate the public on dental trends and the latest advancements in dental care. She has co-authored two books, her latest being “A Cup of Coffee With My Dentist,” which was written to expose readers to modern dentistry and to dismantle dental fear.
“One of the greatest things about being a dentist is that I get to connect with so many great community members and make a real impact on their oral and overall health,” Dr. Takacs said.
Beaumont Family Dentistry’s three locations offer comprehensive care in general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, implant dentistry, orthodontics, laser dentistry, pediatric dentistry, periodontics, endodontics and sleep apnea treatment. Individual services include cleanings and exams, oral cancer screenings, crowns, bridges, veneers, Lumineers, full-mouth reconstructions, oral and IV sedation, dentures, sleep apnea appliances, Invisalign, Fastbraces, CEREC same-day crowns and dental implants.
Beaumont Family Dentistry has provided quality dentistry to Lexington residents for more than 30 years. The large Lexington dental team of 50 staff members consists of extensively trained doctors, hygienists, assistants and front office staff, many of whom have been with the practice for more than 15 years.
Each of Beaumont Family Dentistry’s three locations is equipped with CEREC same-day crown technology. Using CEREC, Beaumont Family Dentistry dentists can prepare and restore teeth with natural-looking porcelain crowns in just one day.
Dr. Takacs credits her grandfather, who was a dentist, for influencing her career path. She attended West Virginia University and was accepted into dental school after her junior year. She went on to graduate from the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry with high honors in 1983. Before attending dental school, she worked in a dental office in Vienna and Williamstown, WV.
Dr. Takacs is a Master Affiliate for Fastbraces. The short-term orthodontic treatment Fastbraces is designed to reduce orthodontic treatment time from two to three years to three months to a year. Invisalign uses clear aligners that gradually straighten teeth. The treatment is virtually invisible, and the aligners can be easily removed for eating and cleaning.
Dr. Takacs has advanced training from the Spear Learning Continuum and has completed a mini residency in sleep medicine at Tufts University. She holds memberships with the American Dental Association, Kentucky Dental Association, American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, American Academy of Craniofacial Pain, Bluegrass Dental Society, Dental Organization of Conscious Sedation, Academy of Computerized Dentistry, Academy of Gp Orthodontics and Academy of Laser Dentistry.
Beaumont Family Dentistry supports the Lexington Humane Society, God’s Pantry and the Lexington Refuge for Women.
Beaumont Family Dentistry in Lexington has three locations: 3141 Beaumont Centre Cir., Ste. 300; 100 Trade St., Ste. 225; and 2408 Sir Barton Way, Ste. 225.
