Dr. Josh Patella graduated with his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Louisiana State University. He is committed to continuing education and maintaining a position at the forefront of the latest advances in the dental field. He is a member of the American Dental Association, the Louisiana Dental Association and the New Orleans Dental Association. Dr. Patella utilizes the most effective diagnostic and treatment technology to ensure the comfort of his patients and to achieve the most successful outcomes of care.
At Patella Dental, we emphasize the importance of preventive dental care and recommend coming in twice a year for a checkup. During your checkup, our dentist will perform a comprehensive exam and professional teeth cleaning. With routine care, we can help you to keep your teeth plaque-free and detect oral health conditions in their earliest stages, when they are easiest to treat. For our pediatric patients, we provide extra protection with dental sealants and periodic fluoride treatments, which are proven to reduce the risk of cavities in children.
We are also leading providers of Clear Correct, a discreet, comfortable alternative to traditional metal braces, which allows you to straighten your teeth without anyone having to know that you’re wearing orthodontic appliances. And for patients who are anxious about going to the dentist or a particular procedure, we offer sedation options, which provide a deep feeling of relaxation and can make a lengthy procedure feel like it’s over in just minutes. Laser dentistry is another option in care that is also helpful in reducing dental anxiety for many patients. Dental lasers can cure fillings, treat gum disease and perform biopsies without the pressure, heat or vibration of other conventional approaches to treatment.
Our practice also offers a broad menu of cosmetic services, to help improve the appearance of your smile. Minimally invasive procedures such as teeth whitening and porcelain veneers are relatively quick approaches to achieving a luminous, harmonious smile. We use the KOR whitening system, for either an in-office whitening procedures or as a take-home kit, based on your needs and preference. Both of these professional whitening systems produce the safest, fastest and most effective results in brightening your smile. Additionally, at Patella Dental we offer convenient same-day dental restorations using CEREC technology. CEREC same-day crowns are high quality, permanent restorations that are completed on-site in just one visit to the dentist, eliminating the need for a temporary crown or a return visit. We can also replace missing teeth with dental implants, as well as fixed bridges and customized, natural-looking dentures.
