Dr. Gene Dongieux

In his 50 years of orthodontics with over 20,000 satified patients, Dr. Dongieux has constantly challenged himself, traveling the world over to study and work with the best orthodontic researchers in world, to do better for his patients. His mission โ€“ improved orthodontic procedures with minimal aesthetic impact.

"We treat the whole patient. One's smile is very important. It is the visage that we use to create our best impression in all circumstances: parties, meeting friends, or business meetings. If your smile is pleasing, with great looking straight, white teeth, your are more likely to be more confident and outgoing than if your teeth were stained and crooked. Through our years of creating great smiles, we have found that our patients leave the office feeling great about themselves and exude more confidence." - Dr. Gene Dongieux

Modern Day Orthodontic Solutions for Modern Day Patients

Our Metairie family orthodontist is pleased to bring you the latest in orthodontic care. We offer standard metal braces, ceramic braces and Invisalign. We do recommend metal braces for correcting severe issues that clear aligners cannot fix. Metal braces are also more affordable than other options, and they are sturdy and durable. This makes them a great pick for kids and teens.

If your teen is concerned about their appearance, our family braces orthodontist in Metairie LA highly recommends clear braces. They are the same size and shape as metal braces but they have clear brackets and bands. This makes them less noticeable than metal braces but with the same durability.

Of course, we can't help but recommend Invisalign. Our Metairie Invisalign specialist will explain the benefits of this treatment for you, which is ideal for older teens and adults. The clear aligners are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want as well as brush and floss as regular. This prevents gum disease and cavities.

Invisalign is also comfortable, with no metal brackets or wires. As our Invisalign specialist in Metairie LA will explain to you, this treatment is fully digitalized, meaning that you can see what your smile will look like through the phases.
