Learn about Dr. Mekari

Care Philosophy

As a cosmetic dentist, I believe not only in treating the obvious and getting patients out of pain, but also in giving them something to smile about. That comes from cosmetic smile design for smile enhancement, and facial Aesthetics to improve the appearance of the face. Whether it is Botox to soften or temporarily remove facial lines and wrinkles or Juvederm to augment facial loss of volume. To your health and beauty!

in Slidell, LA |
My first visit today at Mekari Dental Studio was great - from the moment I walked in and was greeted by Casey (sp) until the time I was checked out by Norma. Everyone was patient, informative and welcoming. Jan is the best hygienist. She made me feel very comfortable discussing my dental concerns plus she gave some good tips to maintain my dental hygiene. She was knowledgeable, kind and thorough. Dr. Mekari was very knowledgeable, pleasant and gentle with my teeth. I highly recommend!

The staff was very nice and accommodating. Needed a large cavity fixed on my front tooth & now it looks better than any other tooth in my mouth. You cannot even tell I had work done!
in Nola |
I saw Dr Mekari on 2 occasions for Botox in the forehead. Both times he gave me exactly what I needed, nothing more. His chair side manner is superb. He is very knowledgable & his staff is fabulous. Highly recommend.
