About Our Metairie, LA Dentists and the Dental Team

At Oak Family Dental, we have almost four decades of dental experience and love providing quality dentistry to patients of all ages in the New Orleans area.

Our family of dentists and dental professionals are dedicated to patient care and work hard to provide the best possible outcomes for each patient. We love what we do and look forward to coming to work each day—to treat patients and to build lasting relationships with those who visit our dental office year after year.

At Oak Family Dental, we treat our patients like family, and we look forward to meeting you and your loved ones.

State-of-the-Art Dentistry and 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. In other words, we offer the very latest in dental procedures and technologies combined with a family-friendly atmosphere.

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 and efficiency. We’re proud of our very own in-house dental lab, where we carefully craft your high-quality dental restorations to your exact specifications.

We also offer the Isolite mouthpiece system for your comfort. This technology allows your jaw to relax during treatment, acting as a prop to keep your mouth open but allowing comfortable support when doing so. This system also provides continuous suction, which means you don’t have to swallow irrigation or debris. It protects your cheeks and gums from dental instruments and offers a more sterile environment for a safer and more comfortable dental experience.

In our Metairie, LA dental office, we also see patients of all ages and from every walk of life—from children to senior citizens, from stay-at-home parents to executives, from civil servants to retirees. At Oak Family Dental, everyone is welcome.

Patient Education and 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 essential for our patients to be knowledgeable about their own oral health 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 bilingual staff members who can communicate easily with our Spanish-speaking patients.

Additionally, we want you to be armed with all the facts so that you can make the best decisions about your dentistry.

At Oak Family Dental, we use intraoral cameras to help you see what our dentist sees when examining your teeth and gums. The intraoral camera is about the size of a large drinking straw, but it takes quality pictures of your oral structure that your Metairie dentist can pull up on a screen in your exam room. This helps you make informed decisions and to understand why your dentist suggests certain treatments or procedures.

Our same-day tooth crowns mean no goopy pastes. CEREC technology allows for digital oral impressions and computer-guided restorations created right here in our dental office. Your Metairie dentist will always apply the finishing touches to give you a quality crown or restoration that blends easily with your smile.

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—before work or immediately after school.

If you have an emergency, give us a call because we can often see you on 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 matters, and we’ll work with you to make your treatment affordable.

We work with all dental PPO plans and are in-network with providers like Delta Dental, Humana, and many more. If you’re uninsured, CareCredit is a third-party financing option that helps you get the necessary care when you need it most, and our Oak Family Dental Membership is another great option. Please see the financial section for more information. 

The Oak Family Dental Membership

At Oak Family Dental, we offer an in-office membership program. The Oak Family Dental Membership, offered only to our patient, is a reduced fee dental plan to provide the opportunity for patients to receive dental services from our office at a discounted fee. The initial sign up fee covers your bi-yearly dental cleanings, check-ups, and radiographs.  In addition to these services Oak Family Dental Membership patients also receive a discount on all dental procedures at our office, with no limit on the amount of treatment you can receive.  Please see the brochure under the financial portion of our website for more information.
