Meet Our Hygienists

Our hygienists are here to help you maintain healthy teeth and gums for the rest of your life. The mouth is a warm, dark, moist place with a constant source of food. Bacteria thrive in this environment and in no time you can develop a buildup of plaque, tartar and bacteria that are harmful to your gums and to your overall health and needs to be professionally removed. Dr. Bonnie and Paulette will thoroughly clean your teeth and teach you how to keep them clean and healthy between dental visits.

Paulette - Metairie Dental Centre
Paulette grew up in Jefferson and received her Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene from the University of Louisiana Monroe.
When not at work Paulette is busy, busy, busy with her three boys Josh, Patrick, and Luke.
