Hi!! I’m Terry Fugetta DDS. Otherwise known as “Dr Fu”! I’ve been practicing dentistry for more than 46 years. I love my patients and am totally dedicated to helping them maintain their beautiful smiles for a lifetime!! I’ve been married to my “bride” Cece, for 48 years and we have 3 beautiful daughters! When not doing dentistry, I love to play golf, cook, and cheer for the Saints, LSU, and the Yankees!

Hi, My name is Sarah and I have been a EDDA since 2010. Throughout my years as a Dental Assistant I have learned my passion is the cosmetic side of Dentistry. I love being chairside and I also love to make people feel comfortable in the dental chair. Outside of the Dental office I am a mother to 4 incredible kiddos, 2 crazy Boston Terriers, and 1 Sassy Yorkie. I love the great outdoors, training in the gym and traveling.
My absolute favorite pastime is a good cookout with family and friends by the pool or campfire!
