A beautiful smile is a great start to an amazing first impression. Although having a great smile is important, an overall clean oral health is even more important. Fortunately, there is a practice led by Dr. Bobbie Morris, which has been providing exceptional dental and oral healthcare to the community of Lockport for over 33 years.
Dr. Morris’ dental practice, Crescent Dental, strives to provide amazing service and excellent quality care for every patient that walks through the door. Their goal is to “provide our patients with the dental resources they need to understand their oral health treatment options while realizing the importance of prevention.” Crescent Dental strives to exceed beyond your expectations and this can be traced back to Dr. Morris’ teenage years. Her father was also a dentist and she would work at his practice over the summers. It was during this time that she gained admiration for improving her community’s oral healthcare. She later received a Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree from LSU and went on to join her father’s practice before opening her own.
“I started with my dad years ago. He had a heart attack, so he wasn’t seeing too many patients,” Dr. Morris said. “I worked with him in his upstairs office for about a year. I then bought a modular dental office and practiced in there for about six years.” After those six years, Dr. Morris built an office behind the original modular office and continued to practice dentistry there for over twenty years. Four years ago, she expanded her practice by building a new building and adding two associate doctors to her team. The new office has some of the latest dental technology, which allows patients to receive excellent care.
Because of the continued growth of her practice, she currently employs 12 people. Dr. Zachary Karam, a LSU Dental graduate, works alongside Dr. Morris in providing this quality dental care. Dr. Karam works well with patients of all ages and is a tremendous asset to the practice. This summer the practice will add another dentist, Dr. Blaine Adams. “He [Dr. Adams] is young, full of energy, and ready to give back to his community,” Dr. Morris says.
Not only do the doctors and staff at Crescent Dental provide the community with great oral health, they also volunteer for those who cannot afford dental treatment. They participate in Dentistry from the Heart, Mission of Mercy and other mission trips to provide dentistry for the less fortunate. Dr. Morris strives to be a role model for young people, especially young women, as she has been a successful business owner for 33 years.
A wide variety of restorative and cosmetic treatments are offered at Crescent Dental. Some of the restorative services provided are fillings, bridges, crowns, dental implants, dentures and root canals. The cosmetic treatments offered include porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, orthodontic procedures, Botox and Juvederm.
“Dentistry has come a long way in the last 50 years. We are able to make patients feel comfortable,” says Dr. Morris, “When you have a patient that has a memory of a bad dental experience, it’s hard to overcome that. We alleviate the fear in a lot of people with just the way dentistry is done now.”
