ciara, registered dental hygienist

Originally from Houma, La, Ciara moved to Youngsville when she was thirteen and has loved living in the Acadiana area for pretty much her whole life. She studied pre-dental hygiene at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and then got her Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene at the LSU School of Dentistry and she’s now been in the dental field for over 10 years. What she loves most about her job is the family atmosphere she works in. Even though she’s new to our team, she can already say that she feels like she’s working alongside her best friends. She loves getting to know her patients and watch their families grow over the years and catch up on all of the new things they’re up to over time. She loves to laugh with the kids and truly loves that she can enjoy all of this while keeping her patients healthy at the same time. Ciara has two golden retrievers, Marley and Bruce Wayne, that are her best friends. She loves to travel to different trails to ride mountain bikes with her boyfriend, Aaron and she loves to work out! Some of her favorite past times are camping, fishing, CRABBING, gardening and she loves our office po-ke-no nights!

christina, expanded duty dental assistant

Born and raised in Slidell, La. Christina recently moved to Youngsville, La and loves the culture, people, everything about the lifestyle here! Although she’s now found a home here on our team in this role, her first career path took her to cosmetology school for hair and makeup. She loved enhancing clients’ beauty but somewhere along the way she fell in love with the dental field and now she’s all about enhancing her patients’ smiles instead! She still loves to do hair and makeup on the side for fun, especially for our own team. Christina loves being a part of making people healthier, happier and doing anything to help them fall in love with their smile. She’s been married for 6 years and has the sweetest little 2 year old with the biggest heart. Her favorite past time is being in the outdoors alongside her husband and son!

jennifer, expanded duty dental assistant

With over 10 years of experience in Orthodontics, she was the perfect one to join our team as our practice is growing and expanding our Ortho services. She organizes our carts, orders materials, confirms patients’ measurements, and is thorough in her explanation of the ortho process so that each of her patients know exactly what they need to do at home to get them to the next step in the process to a straighter smile! Additionally, she has recently become trained in operating our Ceph X-ray, which is a diagnostic radiograph used primarily for ortho treatment planning. Jennifer attended Academy of Acadian in 2006, where she earned her certification as a Dental Assistant. Not only does she have the tenure in Ortho, but she’s also certified in CPR and Expanded Dental Duties. She loves transforming amazing smiles and the joy that her patients have once their journey of ortho is complete. Jennifer and her husband, Josh have two amazing children, Brooke and Blaise. They love being outdoors, traveling and making memories as a family of four!
