Following this, Dr. Hebert graduated from Louisiana State University’s School of Dentistry in 1981 and furthered her education with three residencies. To insure the highest quality treatment and best possible outcome, Dr. Hebert continues to enhance her knowledge and skills by traveling around the globe to train with leading endodontists and implant specialists. Dr. Hebert’s practices focuses on adult endodontistry as well as pediatric endodontistry, endodontistry for patients with special needs of all ages, and work with Veterans Affairs to provide services to honor veterans of the U.S. Military.

She actively pursues an average of 100-200 hours of continuing education annually to maintain her position as a leader in the field of endodontics. In 2007, Dr. Hebert completed an implant residency, believing that her knowledge of this field would help her to better counsel patients on the decision of whether to treat or pull problem teeth.
