We're Apple Street Dental now!
It is with great excitement that I’m announcing a change in ownership of my dental practice. Dr. Calvin Bessonet with Ascension Premier Dental will acquire my practice as of October 25th. Our new name will be Apple Street Dental. I will continue to practice dentistry in this location along with Dr. Bessonet. With this new arrangement, you will see the benefit of expanded office hours, more staff to assist you, and fewer referrals to specialist in that Dr Bessonet has extensive training in advanced surgical procedures and orthodontics. He will also introduce new technology which will make diagnosis and treatment more effective and efficient.
It will be our mission to ensure that you will experience even better care, have shorter wait times for appointments, and find the expanded hours and technology a great asset.
Dr. Bessonet is a native of Donaldsonville, where he attended Ascension Catholic High School. After attending LSU and the LSU School of Dentistry, Dr. Bessonet founded Ascension Premier Dental in Geismar, where he has worked for the last 16 years.
Dr. Bessonet and his wife, Toni, live in Gonzales. The Bessonets have two children, Hayden and Brooklynn. In his free time, Dr. Bessonet enjoys fishing, being outdoors, and LSU football.
Dr. Bessonet is committed to lifelong learning in the dental field and has been recognized by other general dentists as a leader who exemplifies the importance of quality continuing dental education. He completes more than 100 hours of continuing education courses each year. He has participated in an intensive, 400-hour implant and bone regeneration program with the esteemed Dr. Hilt Tatum, one of the pioneers in the field of implant dentistry and inventor of many of the advanced surgical techniques used today.
You will continue to see familiar faces but also will meet new additions to the staff. They will be contacting you for your next regularly scheduled visit. We continue to welcome new patients and are honored by your referrals of family, friends and co-workers. Our number remains (985) 764-7066
Thank you again for your loyalty and confidence. I know you are in good hands with Apple Street Dental.
