Registered Dental Hygienist
Meet our amazing registered dental hygienist, Catherine Green. Catherine joined our team in October of 2022. She was born and raised in the quaint town of Jennings, LA. She attended UL Lafayette from 2018-2020 to complete her pre-requisites for dental hygiene school. Upon completion, she then continued her education at LSU Health School of Dentistry in New Orleans, LA. In 2022, she graduated Magna Cum Laude with her Bachelor of Science in dental hygiene. She was chosen by her faculty to be inducted into Sigma Phi Alpha, the dental hygiene honor society, based on her leadership and service as a student. Catherine was also the recipient of the Shirley Mae Stevens Bienvenu and Dr. Huey Stevens scholarship which is awarded to a new dental hygiene graduate based on dedication to the dental hygiene profession.
Catherine is an asset to our office and continues to be complimented by our patient’s for her professional demeanor and gentle manner. She loves to give 110% attention to her patients and strives to give the best dental experience and good quality dental care. She is a team leader and great role model. When you don’t find her in the office, Catherine enjoys spending time with her family making memories. She also loves the time spent with her favorite fur buddy, Sonny, who is a golden retriever.
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.
