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.

How safe is sedation dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is very safe. You will be given a prescription for low-dose benzodiazepine medication, which will relax you while allowing you to remain conscious throughout the procedure. The medications are safe and not addictive at such a low dose, and few people experience adverse reactions. You will always be carefully monitored while you are sedated to make sure that you are comfortable and free of stress and anxiety. 

Due to the sedation effect, you must make arrangements for transportation to and from your appointment with a driver who can remain at the office while you are undergoing your procedure. We also recommend that you take at least a day or two off so that you can go home and relax following your dental appointment. Do not drive for at least 24 hours after taking the sedative medication.
