Louisiana State University School of Dentistry
“Wednesdays allow me to view all the new advances in dentistry and observe the new dentists transformation into real life practitioners.” – Dr. Landreneau
Louisiana State University School of Dentistry has been responsible for educating dentists since 1974. Since that time, LSU School of Dentistry has established a reputation ranking in the top 10% of all dental schools in the nation. With 65 students graduating per year, about 45 of these recent graduates practice in Louisiana. LSU, without doubt, has taken the lead in many areas of research, especially with new dental products emerging on the market. Many new types of veneers, crowns and other restorations that most patients are familiar with, are being researched at LSU, specifically in the department of Prosthodontics. Prosthodontics is the science of replacing lost teeth with some form of man made (synthetic) material. Dr. Landreneau is an Associate Professor in the department of Prosthodontics and has been teaching at LSU School of Dentistry since 2009. This position allows him to share his knowledge and experience with junior students in a clinical setting, treating patients in a real life environment for the first time in their career. Dr. Landreneau brings real life practical materials and methods that come from working in a private dental office. He enjoys his time with students and knows that the methods he teaches will have an impact on these young students and will be used for many years to come. Students seek him out in hopes of learning as many practical methods possible. Dr. Landreneau feels that students and patients alike will experience better dental health and ultimately better overall health because of these principles. Dr. Landreneau begins his “mentorship” for the 2015-2016 school year. He looks forward to spending Wednesdays at LSU School of Dentistry with junior students.
