A Family
Treating Families


More than three decades of shaping smiles & changing lives.

In 2016, the practice became the only mother-daughter dental team in the Greater New Orleans Area with the addition of Dr. Gabrielle Richard.  

Dr. Gizelle Richard opened her doors in 1986. The practice was originally located in the former Village Aurora Mall, but in 2000, she built what is now the current office on General DeGaulle Drive in Algiers.

Fast forward to 2018, when Dental Arts of New Orleans welcomed Dr. Brent Benoit to the practice. Dr. Benoit is a board certified orthodontist who is trained in both traditional braces and Invisalign for adults and children.

Our mission is to provide the highest quality dental and orthodontic care available and to transform the lives of our patients in profound ways. We offer meticulous, uncompromising, state of the art dental and orthodontic care with a commitment to honoring every person we have the privilege to treat.

We are a full-service general dentistry and orthodontic practice for the entire family. Our philosophy of care is focused on providing comprehensive and patient-centered dentistry in a quiet, stress-free environment. What sets us apart from other offices is that we are fee-for-service and private insurance driven, allowing us to offer superior oral health care on our own terms, the way dentistry was intended to be provided.
