My dental hygienist was wonderful and caring. She did a great job on my cleaning and took the time to provide future dental advice. Great atmosphere!" -Deborah P.

    Dr. Troy Patterson, Dr. Garet Patterson, and Dr. Jason Alvarez welcome you to Oak Family Dental! Our friendly professional team has been providing families in Metairie, New Orleans, and Kenner with comfortable, high-quality dental care for over 30 years.

    When you choose a dentist for your family, you’d like to know that you can expect consistent care now and far into the future.

    State-of-the-Art Old-Fashioned Care

    At Oak Family Dental, we’ve worked hard to achieve the perfect mix of efficient, state-of-the-art dental treatment and good old-fashioned family dental care. We believe that exceptional dental care combines the most updated treatments with genuine concern for your needs. 

    We’ve invested in stress-reducing technology like digital x-rays and CEREC one-day crowns that take your treatment to a whole new level of comfort. We’re proud of our very own in-house dental lab, where we carefully craft your high-quality dental restorations to your exact specifications.

    Patient Education & Support

    Our doctors and team are committed to bringing you the most updated treatments available through continuing education classes and specialized training. But we believe it’s equally important for our patients to be knowledgeable about their own oral heath care. That’s why patient education is an integral part of the services we provide at Oak Family Dental.

    We take the time to get to know you, because we love people and we wouldn’t have it any other way. The added benefit, though, is that we can learn about what’s important to you and how your dental treatment will fit your lifestyle and budget.

    This way we can support you in making decisions that take all your needs into account. It’s important to us that everyone understands the details of their dental care. We have several bilingual staff members who can communicate easily with our Spanish-speaking patients.

    High-Quality, Convenient Care

    We know that you have so many obligations that it may feel like you don’t have time to schedule regular dental visits. At Oak Family Dental, we make your dental care uncomplicated. Our patient-friendly hours make it easy to arrange appointment times that fit your family’s busy schedule. We offer extended hours during the week and are open every other Saturday. If you have an emergency, give us a call because we can often see you the same day. Patients of record who have an emergency can contact us 24 hours a day as needed.

    We’ve recently doubled the size of our wheelchair-accessible office for your comfort. Our modern treatment rooms are equipped with TVs, music, and even pillows and blankets so you can sit back and relax during your procedure.

    Everyone has concerns about covering the cost of dental treatment. At Oak Family Dental, we never want you to go without proper care because of financial concerns, and we’ll work with you to find a way to make your treatment affordable.

    We work with all dental PPO plans and are in-network with many providers like Delta Dental, Humana, United Healthcare, and many more. If you’re uninsured, CareCredit is a third-party financing option that helps you get necessary care when you need it most.

    At Oak Family Dental, we offer an in office membership program.  The Oak Family Dental Membership is a reduced fee dental plan to provide the opportunity for patients to receive dental services from our office at a discounted fee. Please see the brochure under the Financial portion of our website for more information.
