Due to the notice received from the Louisiana Department of Health on March 17th, we will be postponing all routine, non-essential dental procedures/surgeries for the next 30 days. We will remain open for any dental emergencies during this time to take care of our patients and take pressure off of the local emergency departments. Please call our office with any dental emergencies and we will do our best to help get you out of pain.
