  • “ I have had the best experience with Dr. Domingue and his staff! He's kind, professional, and is extremely involved with every aspect of the patient care. His staff is one of the friendliest I have ever met. They don't only work in your mouth, they form real professional relationships. Dr. Domingue recently told me he was going to work with my time because, "you are way busier than I am". What a humble statement! I was so impressed when he recently shared that he was going on a mission trip to serve in Mexico. I think he is a gift to the lafayette community, and everyone needs to know.”

Why is Continuing Education so Important in Dentistry?

As with most industries, today, dental techniques, tools, and procedures change constantly. New products arrive on the scene that require our evaluation or new procedures arise to make treatment easier and faster for our patients. It is our job to sift through that information and determine how to improve our patients’ dental experience. 

As dentists, we feel responsible to stay on top of the latest and greatest that dentistry has to offer because we always want to provide the best treatment for our patients. That is why at Drs. Smith and Domingue, we believe in maintaining the highest standards when it comes to education, training, and certifications. In addition to the required continuing education courses to maintain our licenses, we also seek out new and better ways to do dentistry. Our goal is to remain on the leading edge of what our profession has to offer.

By implementing certain treatments such as laser dentistry, IV sedation, and implant placement and restoration, we provide a better service to our patients in a more comprehensive way. Laser dentistry improves healing time, reduces pain, and is less invasive than traditional surgical methods. Offering IV sedation makes treatment comfortable and anxiety-free. By providing dental implant placement and restoration in our Lafayette dental office, we ensure high quality implants and streamlined treatment under our own roof, where we can achieve the best outcome. 

We do not jump on every new treatment, instrument, or technique that comes along. We focus on those that work well to support our patients so we can provide you with the outstanding care you deserve.

Did you know that we are not only advocates of continuing education, but that we also believe in educating others? We provide education to other general dentists who want to offer more services and better care to their patients, as well.
