Dr. Elizabeth Thorson originally hails from the tiny town of Horton, Kansas, but after completing her dental residency at LSU, she’d fallen totally in love with Louisiana.
Now, Dr. Thorson has established the only pediatric dental practice in St. Charles Parish.
“This place reminds me my own hometown,” says Dr. Thorson. “Everybody knows everybody and takes care of one another. When I was a child, my dentist was like a member of our extended family. I want to be the same for my own patients.”
As a pediatric dentist, Dr. Thorson has two years of specialized training in treating children, including child psychology, behavior modification, sedation, and trauma. She is also Board Certified with privileges at Childrens’ Hospital in New Orleans.
Says Dr. Thorson, “We recommend that a child’s first visit be when the first tooth comes in, so we can set the stage for oral health through proper nutrition and hygiene.”
Dr. Thorson is on call 24 hours a day. Her office is now open and taking appointments.
“Kids are the spice of life for me,” says Dr. Thorson, “I give my little people lots of TLC to make every visit as easy and as comfortable as possible.”
