Denture Dentist Randy L. Farmer
Dr. Farmer began his training as a denture dentist at the University of Texas Dental Branch at Houston in the early 1980s. At the time, he didn’t realize he would be part of a major revolution in the way denture dentists practice their art and craft. But in true Texas fashion, he recognized the potential of dental implants and led the way with his unique Denture LOCK™ system. This system allows a denture dentist to secure a denture using four dental implants. The reward for patients is that they get more secure dentures than are possible without dental implants. The Denture LOCK™ system is compatible with the Denture Fountain of Youth®, which allows patients to get dentures that are highly attractive and rejuvenating as well as secure and functional.
Dr. Farmer’s training as a denture dentist includes several advanced training programs and honors. He has been recognized as a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry for his extensive continuing education. He has also been honored as a Fellow by the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. He has graduated from advanced training programs at the Baylor School of Dentistry Esthetic Continuum, the Center for Advanced Dental Studies, and the University of Texas, San Antonio, where he received additional training in dental implants.
Denture Demand in Houston
Houston has a high demand for denture dentists primarily because of its size. The fourth largest city in the US, Houston is also a very youthful city. Although 14% of the US population is over the age of 65, only 10% of Houstonians are over the age of 65. Houston is also a very health-conscious city that has been improving its health recently. Smoking rates in Houston have dropped significantly, with only 16.5% of Houstonians being smokers, compared to a nationwide average of 18%. Smoking dramatically increases the risk of tooth loss, with smokers being twice as likely to need full dentures as nonsmokers.
In many other ways, Houston is average, with a median household income approximately equal to the nationwide median, and obesity rates comparable with the nationwide average, except that male obesity rates have not grown as fast as nationwide. Overall, we might expect a below average demand for denture dentists per capita, with 2% of the total population of Houston requires a complete denture. However, because of the size of the city, this still represents a considerable denture demand of about 45-50,000 individuals.
Why the Denture Fountain of Youth® Is Right for Houston
Because the per-capita demand for a denture dentist is relatively low, Houstonians who do need complete dentures are probably aware that they are not the norm. With a very youthful population, they are probably also aware of a pressure to appear youthful in order to remain competitive in the workplace and to feel confident in their appearance. Therefore Houstonians demand dentures that are natural in appearance, stay in place, and help them maintain a youthful appearance.
The Denture Fountain of Youth® meets this demand perfectly. With high quality materials and superb fitting, denture dentists can provide a natural appearance—these are dentures that don’t look like dentures. Because the dentures also help restore lost volume in the lower third of the face, the Denture Fountain of Youth® meets the demand for a denture treatment that helps the wearer look younger.
