Here’s what our patients have to say about Barataria Dental:
My experience with Barataria Dental was superb! I had to get some dental work done within a week of me calling because I was scheduled to leave town for a business opportunity. They squeezed me in for three different appointments, one to see what was wrong, one to fix my fillings and another to do tooth extractions. I never felt judged or talked down to. I felt like these were my friends who happened to be working on my teeth. The front desk to the operation room, you’re going to get a good experience. I’ve given their information to my entire family. I feel very comfortable there. They even helped me get my insurance information straight to ensure that my visit was affordable. I can’t imagine another office being able to accommodate me with such grace and friendliness. This office truly embodies southern hospitality. I will be returning when I return to Louisiana! Love these ladies!Tyler P.
I’m an extremely nervous person who does not like the dentist. Why I work myself up I have no clue but Dr. Val makes me feel so comfortable and relaxed. Simply the best; I guess that’s why I’ve been going to them for over 20 years!
I love this place so much. It’s mind boggling how I actually enjoy every second of being at a dentist office! The staff is very professional and helpful with everything, and the service is great. From fillings, to cleanings, to sealants and tooth pulling, everything is done with gentleness and sincere care. I appreciate Barataria Dental and I promise so would you. Highly recommended!Ellis W.
Dr. Val, Maranda, and EVERYONE at this office are amazing. Everyone is always, ALWAYS friendly! They explain and go into great detail about anything and everything you need to know. They make sure you are always comfortable and have up to date technology that makes going to the dentist not so scary. They have completely transformed my teeth making smiling something I enjoy doing in my pictures now. I went in for a deep cleaning (after not being to the dentist in a while I had some buildup) and now I have a cleaner, fuller, and whiter smile. They go above and beyond patient care. I recommend them 100 times over.Samantha S.
