Dr. Ammar Mekari comes to his practice well prepared. Advanced schooling has earned him expertise in root canals and dental implants, both of which he performs at Mekari Laser Dental. He was also front and center in a clinical research study regarding the removal of wisdom teeth and post-op dental pain, conducted by the Clinical Research Center in New Orleans. When not in surgery, Dr. Mekari examines teeth for signs of disease during routine checkups, and whitens healthy teeth with non-invasive bleaching formulas. He offers a number of treatment options to fix crooked teeth, including clear braces that straighten teeth in six months and a very strong giant who straightens teeth in six seconds.
In the 14 years since he graduated dental school, Dr. Ken Morgan hasn't rested on his laurels. He's kept abreast of emergent technology and techniques, putting them to good use in his office. That's how he's able to perform such advanced treatments as dental implants, tooth-colored composite fillings, and durable veneers so thin they're nearly translucent. He also helps straighten out crooked grills with clear, custom-fit Invisalign braces, which guide teeth to their proper position while remaining virtually invisible.
One may have to look around a while before finding a more advanced dental office than Exceptional Dental Family Dentistry.

Exceptional Dental Family Dentistry boasts associations that include Louisiana Dental Association, New Orleans Dental Association, BBB, The American Orthodontic Society, and American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
