We have some very exciting news to share with you -we are growing and 'rebranding'! Most of you know Dr Mathews and her continued commitment to patient care, but with the full-time addition of Dr Babin to our practice, we thought this would be a great time to introduce you formally to our team - and to our new name as of September 1, 2018 - Lagniappe Dental! We are confident you'll experience a better quality of care and commitment from us than ever before as we move forward!
Dr Brian P Babin is a native of Houma and is an LA Tech and LSUSD graduate. Dr Babin practiced in Denver, CO from 1996 till his return to Bossier last year. While in Denver he was honored to be the team dentist for the NHL Colorado Avalanche. He enjoys all things outdoors, especially hunting, fishing, hiking, and Jeeping. We are very happy to welcome him back to his home state and into our practice!
Keeyon Chaney RDH, BS is originally from Mississippi, but has traveled the world with her Air Force husband Brian. We are pleased that they decided to land in Bossier City!! Keeyon has been with our practice since October 2017 and is a very welcome addition. Patients have consistently given her the best reviews we've ever had in our 20+ years of practice! She also is an excellent cook - we love all the treats she brings to the office!
We welcome back to our practice our certified dental assistant Tanya Anderson-Gordon. She worked with us for many years before relocating to California. Once she returned, she couldn't wait to work with us again! Tanya has excellent chairside skills and a personality to match. She enjoys making patients feel comfortable and keeps a light-hearted atmosphere in the clinical areas. Tanya has a beautiful blended family with her husband Bryan who just retired from the Army.
Christy Hermes has been a certified dental assistant for over 10 years. Now she is transitioning to coordinating our front desk and is enjoying the challenge. Christy helps our patients with their appointments, insurance benefits, financial arrangements, and treatment coordination. She often times will be the first person you speak with when calling our office to inquire about all things dental! Christy is the proud mom of Brayden and Olivia and enjoys her time with them outside the office.
We feel that our new practice name 'Lagniappe Dental' truly encompasses what we believe in - an expectation of excellence in a comfortable and compassionate atmosphere where our patients experience true lagniappe - it's that 'little something extra' that you just can't get anywhere else! As we grow our practice, please think of people who could benefit from our dental practice philosophy. We are always looking for new patients just like you!! Thank you for continuing to place your trust in us and we look forward to seeing you, your friends, and your family in the future!
