An endodontist is a dentist who has attended several years of higher training post-dental school to learn specialized care of the root systems of the teeth. Endodontists save many teeth that would otherwise face extraction by clearing infection out of the roots and sealing the tooth to prevent further damage. This procedure is known as “Root Canal Therapy."

    Dr. Lester received his Bachelor's degree in Biology from St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He attended Louisiana State University School of Dentistry in New Orleans, Louisiana, and completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery in 2005 with an Honors in Research.

    Dr. Caronna received his Bachelor's degree in Biological Sciences from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He attended Louisiana State University School of Dentistry in New Orleans, Louisiana, and completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery in 2007.

  • The staff have stupendous attitudes and professionalism! Had a root canal done by Dr. Caronna, he and the nurse were amazing and had knew how to have a few laughs. They talked to me and continuously checked to see if I needed anything and set me at complete ease. Dr. Dan soup!!! That was icing on all the feel goods!! Soup (tomato basil was mine) has a full flavor and hearty taste, perfect for when the numbness wears off and one can barely open their sore jaws!! Thank you all for the amazing experience and restoring my faith in legit good dentist who care about their patients! I'll definitely come to y'all first with any more problems!!

  • When it comes to any type of dental visits I have severe anxiety, Dr Lester did his best to make sure I was comfortable during my root canal, I can honestly say I had a 100% pain free root canal and was sent home with a jar of soup! I will recommend him to everyone! Best dental experience of my life.
