Meet Dr. Laurent

Get to Know Your Smile Designer

Ann Laurent, DDS

After graduating from LSU School of Dentistry in 1983, Dr. Ann Laurent was one of only three female dentists in Lafayette. Today, she remains a trailblazer for aspiring women in a practice that helps patients achieve harmony when their outer smile mirrors their inner one. Her personal sense of spirituality informs her passion for beauty and healing in mind, body, and spirit. Balancing her compassionate heart is a zest for friendship, food, and music. Dr. Laurent’s hope and prayer is that her synthesis of artistic expression in social action reveals itself in her work, in
her relationships, and in her life. In the words of Kahlil Gibran, “Work is love made visible.”

A word from Dr. Laurent
“I believe that everyone can have a beautiful, healthy smile. The first step is for me to ensure your comfort and trust, so together we can plan for a lifetime of beautiful, healthy teeth and gums. I always take the time to hear your concerns and answer your questions because I want you to know that you are important to me.”
