Benton Family Dentistry To Resume Seeing Patients on May 25


Dear Patients,

We are excited to announce that starting May 18, Benton Family Dentistry will resume seeing patients during standard business hours. After studying guidance from the American Dental Association, the Arkansas Dental Association, the CDC, and other medical and dental authorities, we are prepared to begin treating patients in our office.

Benton Family Dentistry has always adhered to rigorous standards specific to cleanliness, disinfection, and sterilization. We firmly believe that the dental office is one of the cleanest environments that the public can visit. The safety of our patients and our team is of utmost concern. To address the recent impacts, we have made some modifications to our protective equipment and our in-office procedures.

Below are just a few of the changes you may notice:


  • Our lobby will remain ‘closed’ — please stay in your car and call or text us to let us know you have arrived. A team member will meet you at the lobby door to admit you.
  • Patients are asked not to bring friends or family members to their appointment unless assistance is required or the patient is a minor.
  • A team member will take your temperature and ask you some COVID19 specific screening questions before escorting you to a treatment room.
  • Non-clinical team members may be wearing masks and/or gloves during their interactions with you.

We know that these have been extraordinary times and that we are all looking forward to our old routines. Please know that we truly miss all of our patients and we are excited for you to return. If have you have any questions, please contact our office at (501) 623-6132 or visit our website at

An Alternative to Dental Insurance

Bfd Dental Insurnace

Dental insurance and coverage is constantly changing, becoming more complex than ever before. Additionally, some employers are no longer offering dental benefits to their staff as they look for ways to cut costs. This can be very challenging for families that need routine cleanings and dental work but are not exactly sure how to find the best solution.

There are many misconceptions about dental insurance. Patients often feel that they have to see a dentist in network because this will provide them with the best value for the care that they need. This is not always true! It is often the case that the “benefit” you receive from your dental insurance plan is off-set by the premium that you pay.

Our Membership Plan includes many benefits:

  • Professional dental cleanings (2 per year)
  • Doctor exams (1-2 per year)
  • Adult and perio plan include one fluoride treatment per year, children's plans include 2 treatments per year
  • Needed x-rays*
  • One emergency exam per year (if needed)
  • 15% off all other treatments
  • Payments can be made annually or monthly
  • Each additional family member receives 5% off the cost of the plan
  • Membership includes access to our easy to use patient portal what you review plan details, add family members, and update payment information

At Benton Family Dentistry in Hot Springs, Arkansas, we are proud to offer an in-office membership plan that provides numerous benefits and discounts to our members at a low monthly price. Our plan is an alternative to traditional dental insurance and is very simple to join. We provide our members with access to quality, affordable dental healthcare without the complexities and hassles that come with your dental insurance company.
