Accepting new patients

I’m a general dentist that treats patients of all ages. I’ve been told that I’m kind, honest, and extremely skilled. Family and health is important to me and I consider it an honor if you choose me for your family’s dentist. I will always do my best to take care of you. I have a sense of humor and like to have fun while I work. I love what I do! I opened Dental Expressions in 2004, and have been blessed to work with a team of caring and talented people. My staff is my second family.Dentistry is constantly evolving with advancements in technology and materials and I am passionate about staying current with the latest high tech developments. This ensures that you are offered the highest level of treatment and care available. I attend continuing education classes and dental conferences regularly. Use of digital x-rays in my office ensures your safety, while the use of 3-D imaging and an in-office milling machine for crowns offer patients better and faster solutions. EDUCATION I grew up in Laurel, Mississippi, two hours north of New Orleans. I served in the Army with the 101st Airborne unit as a combat medic and discovered the medical world was a good fit for me so I decided to go to dental school. I graduated in 1996 from Louisiana State University with a degree in Doctor of Dental Surgery.My advanced training includes an oral surgery internship in 1995 at Guys Hospital in London, England, the largest dental teaching hospital in Europe. I am also a certified E4D restoration provider and have completed more than 100 hours of continuing education in computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) dentistry and aesthetics.I’ve completed training in frenectomies for lip and tongue tie. If your pediatrician or lactation consultant has told you that your child’s nursing difficulties may be related to a tongue or lip tie, I can help. I specialize in this type of minor surgery helping newborns and small children regain proper use of their lip and tongue. Myself, my wife, Suzanne, and two of our daughters were tongue tied so I know first hand about this particular challenge. OUTSIDE THE OFFICE When I’m not caring for my patients I’m having fun with my family. Suzanne and I have three daughters, Seda, Isla, and Esmé. We are busy with them enjoying all the activities the lakes region offers. It is amazing watching them grow and learn about this wonderful world. I also love to read, hike, camp, and play the Djembe, an African drum. Giving back to the public is important to me, so I make it a priority to serve the underprivileged locally and abroad in Honduras and Belize.

Dr. Boles is a very caring and compassionate dentist. He came in for an emergency extraction on saturday for my boyfriend who was suffering from a cracked tooth with extreme pain. He explained everything as he was working on him and followed up with him the next day to see how he was doing. I would recommend anyone to Dr. Boles, he was there when we needed him. Thank You So Much !

Best dentist in the Lakes Region! I had an emergency and Dr. Boles was able to fit me in at the end of his day. He was kind and professional. The staff was all very friendly and welcomed me even though they were staying late that day. My broken tooth was fixed with expertise and felt like my old tooth in no time. Thank you Dr. Boles!

After having the same dentist for over 15 years and recently moving further away, the distance to travel to her was becoming an inconvenience. With the help and recommendation of her and some local friends, I chose Dr. Boles. The location of the practice is perfect. His entire staff helped with a smooth transition for both me and my husband. They have continued with our existing treatment plans, offered follow up, and over all we could not be more pleased. 5-star for sure!

I have had to crowns (one for an implant) over the last 10 yrs. Both crowns have chipped for no apparent reason. Did not bite down on anything hard or hit the crowns. I have had other crowns for note than 20 yrs with no problems. The crown for the implant was $1,000+. Nice dentist poor quality.
