This practice is fortunate to have such a caring and personable hygienist on staff. She is an excellent cook and is known to bring delicous meals for our staff. Michelle's generosity and willing to help others is a quality trait that puts her a notch above the rest. She is married to a southern gentleman and is surrounded by her children and grandchildren whom she devotes the majority of her extra time.
Expanded Duty Dental Assistant
If you mention Puissegur Family Dentistry, this little gem of an assistant is the rock of our practice. Shannon joined our team in April 1990, and has been devoted to our patient's well being ever since. She earned her expanded duty dental assistant certification in April 1994, from LSU School of Dentistry, and is CPR certified. She has attended numerous continuing education classes to keep current with today's dental changes. Shannon is also our OSHA regulatory manager. It is not uncommon to find her bouncing from room to room without hesitation to provide quality care to our patients. Shannon is Dr. Mike's right hand, and can usually read his mind in assisting with dental needs. She indeed is a vital and very important asset to our practice. Shannon is happily married, is a proud parent of a United States Marine, and has two stepchildren all of whom she adores. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time outdoors and bakes the best chocolate chip cookies.
