“I love being able to work with my dad. We have a lot of fun working side by side. Every day I learn something new from him, and I am teaching him techniques I learned in my residency program. I also enjoy working with the staff members, many of whom have been in the practice for years and have watched me grow up. It is a very neat relationship I am starting to develop with our patients. Most of the patients already know who I am just by hearing my dad talk about me over the years. When I enter the treatment rooms and introduce myself they say they have been expecting me. I enjoy learning patients' concerns about their oral health and giving them techniques and tips to help their concerns.”
Dr. Garet is a member of the Junior League of New Orleans and enjoys doing service throughout the New Orleans community. In her free time, she enjoys cooking, reading, traveling, spending time with family and friends, and attending LSU and Saints football games.
