Nashville Dentist's Video: Why Dental Implants?

Dr. White offers comprehensive smile care including implant dentistry when appropriate.

Various forms of dentistry can provide positive restorative results.

Yet, dental implants add even more value. Implants are natural looking and are as strong as natural teeth. Adjacent teeth are protected – no need to attach a bridge or partial denture to them, making the procedure more conservative of your surrounding healthy teeth.

Implant dentistry is total oral health rejuvenation with the added benefit of beautifully natural smile makeover. It's dental care everyone should consider who is a missing tooth or or many teeth teeth, and then experience.

Both implants and implant supported dentures are long term smile healthy treatments.

Dentists Learn About Retirement Plans Design and Administration

A cash balance plan is a defined benefit plan that operates much differently than other kinds of retirement plans.
Below is general information provided by Cash Balance Actuaries, LLC of Eden Prairie, MN about how the cash balance plans they design operate, and the advantages of using a cash balance plan to help meet the dentists' retirement savings objectives.

In addition, an introduction to Northern Dental Alliance member Charles Steingas, chief actuary of Cash Balance Actuaries, LLC.


Most of the cash balance plans we design are established for the primary benefit of the owners or executives of a company. Therefore, the contributions for owners and executives are typically very large with a smaller contribution provided to staff to meet IRS requirements. During the plan design, the sponsoring company selects the amount of contribution for each owner and executive, up to the maximum amount permitted by law.

Only businesses can sponsor a cash balance plan, but any business entity may do so. We provide services for sole proprietorships, partnerships, LLCs, nonprofits, and corporations. You don't even need to have any employees other than yourself.

The number of companies sponsoring cash balance plans is growing rapidly. Find out specific the reasons for such rapid growth by linking to CBA's website:
