Welcome to Poetic Smiles

At Poetic Smiles, our priority is to deliver quality care to informed patients in a comfortable and convenient setting.  We are a patient centered practice.  We will co-discover with you those things that effect your oral health as well as complete body health.  We will then discuss the options available to help you maintain or reach complete oral health.  Quality dental care is realized only when the patient and the doctor have a shared vision and work together to attain the desired outcome.

Quality Care
When you have dental problems, you need to turn to a dental team who listens and responds ... experienced doctors who knows the field and can effectively diagnose and treat your needs ... friendly dentists who counsels you on the best ways to maintain and improve your health. Our dental team meets all these criteria.  Plus, you benefit from a dedicated team of trained professionals who give you the individualized attention you deserve.  You will be served by a dental team with over 250 combined years of dental experience.

Informed Patients
Our dentist believes that informed patients are better prepared to make decisions regarding their health and well being. That is why we've included an extensive section on this web site covering the full array of topics associated with dentistry and dental diagnoses and treatments.  We encourage you to look through these pages whenever you have an interest or concern about your dental needs and care.

Comfortable, Convenient Setting
The best care in the world doesn't mean anything if you can't access it.  At Poetic Smiles we strive to make our LaPlace office as efficient and convenient as possible.  Included in these web pages is information about our office, including our LaPlace location, maps, directions, hours, insurance policies and appointment scheduling.  You can even email a request for an appointment right here!  


Look what our patients are saying:
"Excellent dental experience. I have been going to Dr. Mauduit for over 20 years and I travel over 40 miles to get there. He and his entire staff provide a professional, competent and efficient dental experience"-Irene

"Everything is done perfectly.  Being terrified of dentist and dental work, I was incredibly nervous about having extensive work done.  The staff and Dr. Mauduit were unbelievely patient and considerate.  They made me feel totally at ease.  The BEST place ever to get dental work done"-Debbie

"Dr. Mauduit and his staff are excellent. I switched to him from a different dentist this year and on my first visit he diagnosed TMJ. I was under the care of a neurologist and Manual Therapists for horrible headaches, neck and shoulder pain. Dr. Mauduit gave me an accurate diagnosis and I received an NTI device. All of the pain and headaches are gone. Every once in a while I need to adjust it and he sees me immediately and explains everything wonderfully. I would highly recommend. He is honest and knowledgeable and his staff is friendly." -Holly

"The care you give--through all of you in the office--is not just dental care, but complete care of the person. You go out of your way to be sure that your patients are healthy in every way you can assist in that. It is clear from the time someone comes into your office, and until they leave, that this is a place of love and care."-Len
