About Our Services

Meet Dr. Patrick Briese

For Patrick D. Briese, DDS, dentistry runs in the family. Following in the footsteps of three generations of dentists, Dr. Briese is thrilled to bring state-of-the-art dentistry to Rayne, LA, and the surrounding area.

Dr. Briese earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the School of Dentistry at LSU in New Orleans. After working at a private practice in Baton Rouge for a year, a special opportunity presented itself. A dental practice became available for sale when the previous dentist retired. Excited by the opportunity to make skilled, high-quality dentistry availble to the residents of Acadiana, Dr. Briese purchased the practice.

When Dr. Briese is not in the office helping patients, he enjoys fishing, golf, cooking, and snowboarding. He is happily married to his wife Lyndi, and they are the proud parents of 2 children.

Dr. Briese has a Mastership in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.

Your Child’s First Visit

Dr. Briese welcomes all family members into his practice, including children. We encourage parents to bring their children in by their first birthday. Bringing children into the office setting early on promotes a positive lifelong attitude to the dental environment.

A common misconception is that primary (baby) teeth are not crucial because they eventually fall out. Healthy primary teeth are extremely important to the overall health of a child. Good teeth promote proper chewing and thus adequate nutrition. In addition, children need their teeth for pronunciation and speech habits. Neglect or early loss of the primary teeth can lead to a variety of potentially harmful conditions affecting a child’s well-being. Losing primary teeth too early can also negatively affect the development of a child’s permanent teeth and their arrangement within the jaw. It is important for parents to exercise good oral hygiene with their kids and also introduce them to the dentist before a problem occurs
