Let me be the first to welcome you to “Great Big Smiles™ by Nathan A. Burns, DMD!”  We are a pediatric and adolescent dental office, serving children from ages 0-18. We provide comprehensive pediatric dental care, according to the standards set by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. We also provide orthodontic (braces) services and wisdom tooth removal. From birth to braces and beyond, we have your child’s dental needs covered!

We look forward to having you as a patient and thank you for giving us the opportunity to become your pediatric dental specialist. Our wonderful team is dedicated to providing exceptional pediatric dentistry in an environment created especially for children and adolescents. We are a prevention based practice and will always strive to provide you and your child with remarkable customer service and the best pediatric dental care possible. Our goal is to be and always be the premier pediatric dental practice in the Greater New Orleans Area by providing superior pediatric dental health care in a safe, comfortable, efficient, and loving manner.

Every child deserves a healthy mouth with healthy teeth for the rest of their life. We can help you achieve this at our office. We even allow all parents to accompany their child during all dental treatment procedures! Not all pediatric dental offices in the Greater New Orleans area allow this. We do. We believe this enables us to foster a relationship with you and your child and allows you, as the parent, the opportunity to see exactly how your child is treated and to ask any questions that you may have during treatment. It’s a win-win for all of us!

We welcome patients from the entire Greater New Orleans Area, including Metairie, Kenner, Laplace, Destrehan, Lulling, Gretna, Houma, Slidell, Mandeville, Covington, and Hammond. We also see patients from Mississippi as well. We accept most private dental insurances and Louisiana Medicaid.

We have created this app/website to help educate you on the remarkable services we provide and make it as easy as possible for you to schedule an appointment. By clicking on the various icons, you can find all the information you should need to know about our practice. You can even schedule a new patient or cleaning appointment online 24/7! If you haven’t already scheduled your child’s appointment, please give us a call today or click the link button at the bottom of this page. You will be glad you did!
