    About Our Metairie Dentists and the Dental Team

    At Oak Family Dental, we have 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 each patient's best possible outcomes. We love what we do and look forward to coming to work each day—to treat patients and build lasting relationships with those who visit our dental office year after year.

    State-of-the-Art Dentistry and Old-Fashioned Care

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

    At our Metairie 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.
