General Information

Meet Dr. Turner

Dr. Turner graduated from Airline High School in 1995 and then attended LSU in Baton Rouge.  Geaux Tigers!  After attending and graduating from LSU Dental School in 2004, Dr. Turner did a GPR at the VAMC in New Orleans, LA.  Dr. Turner graduated in the top 5% of his class, and received numerous awards while attending dental school.  Dr. Turner also received his certificate in Endodontics from the  LSU School of Dentistry where he was trained in nonsurgical as well as surgical microscopic endodontics.  During his residency, he treated patients at the university, as well as patients in private practices around New Orleans.   He is an alumni member of the OKU dental honor fraternity, the C. Edmond Kells Dental Honor Society, a specialist member of the AAE, and a member of the local and state LDA.  He also recently became board certified as an Endodontist, a process only 25% of endodontists decide to do because of the difficult examination process.  His hobbies are golf, hunting and spending time with his family. 

Dr. Turner is married to his wife Ashley and they have three daughters.

Ease of referral

Our office provides a seamless transition for patients being referred from their general dentist.  We allow online access for patients to fill out their medical history prior to their appointment, saving time for them to relax prior to their appointment. 

If anti-anxiety medication would help you relax, let us know in advance. After Dr. Turner sees you for a consultation and reviews your medical history (which you can fill out online prior to your appointment), he will likely be able to prescribe an anti-anxiety medication for you to take prior to your appointment and even the night before if it will help you sleep. 

We also offer Nitrous Oxide sedation (laughing gas!)  This is for the patient that may have to return to work after the appointment. 

Another option offered to our patients is IV sedation.  A board certified Nurse Anesthetist is on site during your procedure while you comfortably sleep.

An additional fee would be required to help cover costs for the additional time and care involved in monitoring your vital signs during treatment. A driver is necessary to bring you to and from your appointment for your safety. We also would need for you to visit our office personally prior to your treatment appointment day for a consultation and to sign consent forms prior to taking anti-anxiety medications.

We also give all our referring dentists access to their patients to see what stage of treatment we have them in.  This helps you to get scheduled with your referring dentist as quick as possible.
