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.
After her practice was destroyed during Hurricane Katrina, Dr. Rupa Jolly became all the more determined to care for the community’s dental needs. She revived NOLA Dental Care and, today, she continues to improve smiles with preventative check-ups and x-rays, as well as dental implants, teeth whitening, and other cosmetic procedures. She also enrolls in continuing education courses in order to master the field’s most cutting-edge techniques and smile-inducing molar jokes.
At Lakefront Dental Care, Dr. Stephen Delahoussaye and Dr. Joseph Marino Jr. tend to grins with both general and cosmetic dentistry.

Dr. Delahoussaye and Dr. Marino stay current on technological developments, enabling them to perform techniques such as laser dentistry, which can address myriad issues while yielding benefits such as faster healing and reduced bleeding.
At Crescent City Dentistry, Dr. Cleopatra Thompson and her staff offer everything from veneers and crowns to deep cleanings and teeth whitening. What sets their office apart from other dentists is their ability to perform cosmetic procedures such as Botox and dermal-filler injections. The pairing gives patients the chance to take years off their faces and their smiles—all in one spot. She and her experienced team of dental professionals treat tending to both child and adult patients by using the latest digital dental technology. Complimentary transportation is also available for patients.
Although Dr. David P. Colburn has a black belt in karate, he has a gentle touch at Colburn Family Dentistry. He's gathered technology designed to keep patients safe and comfortable. Digital x-rays reveal the goings-on inside teeth and bone without exposing patients to the doses of radiation emitted by yesterday's radiographs.
