Dr. Allison is the joyful driving force that keeps our patients smiling with her combination of positive energy and burning desire to give people results that change their lives. She has two daughters of her own, so she knows the busy schedules and full life that comes with parenting, and she also knows how to coax children out of their shells.
As a Doctor, her passion is creating uniquely customized smiles for each patient, and that keeps her exploring new treatment options for even better results. She’ll be the first to explain how excited she is about this stuff…just ask her – she’s dying to talk about it!
Dr. Hamada studied at ULL (USL back in the day) before studying in France for a year. She graduated from the LSU School of Dentistry in 2000, and then Columbia University’s Orthodontic Program in New York. After all that traveling, she’s happy to be back in South Louisiana!
She and her husband enjoy cooking for friends and traveling with their 2 daughters, and cuddling with their fur baby at home. When she gets free time, Dr. Allison loves to explore local waters on her paddle board.
We have assembled an incredible team at each of our offices, and everyone’s first job is to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible as you go on this journey of remaking your smile. Not only that, but we’re committed to helping our entire team constantly level up their knowledge and skills, to make sure you get incredible results!
It all starts with Joyce, our Office Manager. And you’ve probably already met Kathy, our Treatment Coordinator. Cindy helps you find the best appointment times as our Scheduling Coordinator. Brittany, as our Lead Orthodontic Technician, along with Ariane, Sarah, and Courtney, are as skilled as many orthodontists, and they all make sure you’re getting treatment that’s comfortable and super effective. Chelsey makes sure you have the cleanest experience in town, and Ariana makes sure all your details are in place as we care for you.
Each member of our team treats our patients like family (and don’t worry, they have incredible families!).
Ever been to a cold, quiet, joyless Dr.’s office? How lame was that?! We’re here to make you smile, and that’s more than just working on your teeth. Every trip you make to one of our offices should feel fun, fresh, and light-hearted. Tell us what’s going on in your world, what’s new, and we’ll work our hardest so every question you have is answered and you leave with a smile on your face.
Pitts 21 is the first (and only) self-ligating system of treatment. It’s designed to give us incredible 3D control of your developing smile, and that level of control also means we can do more for your smile in less than than other systems. It’s great, and we honestly have yet to see another system that gets such incredible results for you!
Invisalign straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable teeth aligners. That means most people won’t know your teeth are being straightened.
The Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps towards your final, beautiful smile. You wear each aligner for about two weeks, and only take them out to eat, brush and floss.
Well, we could talk about the AcceleDent® Aura you could use 20 minutes a day to send micropulses to the roots of your teeth and could speed up your treatment by 30-50% (!).
Or we could talk about our iTero Intraoral Scanner, which (if you’re using Invisalign) will show you in depth how well your treatment is working.
We’re always on the look-out for the best technology that helps you get better smiles faster.
