Meet Your Hygienists

Our hygienists are here to help you maintain healthy teeth and gums for the rest of your life. The mouth is a warm, dark, moist place with a constant source of food. Bacteria thrive in this environment and in no time you can develop a buildup of plaque, tartar and bacteria that are harmful to your gums and to your overall health and needs to be professionally removed. Dr. Bonnie and Paulette will thoroughly clean your teeth and teach you how to keep them clean and healthy between dental visits.
Dr. Bonnie
Dr. Bonnie is a New Orleans native having graduated from John F. Kennedy High School, The University of New Orleans, and then LSU School of Dentistry. Since 1996, she has limited her practice to dental hygiene.
