I've been going to Dr. Dunaway for years and I have to say that I'm always impressed when I walk in. The staff knows my name, they treat me like a friend and so does Dr. Dunaway. I've been to a few other dentists before going to Dr. Dunaway but they always came off as unfriendly and not very state-of-the-art. Dr. Dunaway's place is clean and he has the best equipment plus it's always pain free. I moved away about a year ago so I'm unable to go there anymore but it's been tough finding a new dentist that meets my level of expectation that Dr. Dunaway has set. I would highly recommend this office!

I have been a patient of Dunaway for over 15 years. I have always been completely confident and satisfied in the care I received, and in the competence, expertise and professionalism shown by all who are part of the practice.

There are not enough words to express my thanks to Dr. Dunaway and his caring staff. Before being treated by Dr. Dunaway, I was embarrassed by the way my teeth looked and I NEVER smiled. I was in pain most of the time and didn't enjoy eating. I feared the Dentist due to past experiences. Dr. Dunaway and his staff put me at ease at the first appointment. He is one of the most compassionate and caring individuals I have ever known. I now have the most beautiful and confident smile. My husband is a financial advisor and he says that this has been the best investment we have ever made.

I had my very first root canal yesterday by Dr. Lige Dunaway and his staff. I was scared but they eased my mind and the process was done perfectly and in only 1 visit. I just love this group of people and I have been going there for routine cleanings for years. You won't find a better dentist office anywhere. Thank you so much for taking care of me. I have no pain today!

I just moved to the Great State of Louisiana and was having a hard time finding a place that accepted new patients. I had the pleasure of speaking to Dr. Dunaway and his staff and everyone is so patient and very friendly. I cant wait to make my appointment this month!!
