Dr. Henagan graduated from LSU School of Dentistry in 1980. He has been serving New Iberia and the surrounding area since that time. Shortly after graduation, he completed the Continuum at the Pankey Institute and Peter Dawson in Florida. The Pride Institute has guided Dr. Henagan in leadership and management for more than 30 years. He is proud to be an alum of this program!
In order to stay on the cutting edge of dentistry, Dr. Henagan continues his education with both of these institutes, as well as the LSU Cosmetic Continuum. CEREC® same-day crown technology was implemented into his practice in 2001 and has had one of the greatest impacts in his dental practice.
In 2009, mentoring fellow colleagues on using CEREC technology (throughout the entire state of Louisiana) became an activity he really enjoyed doing. He remains active with teaching to this day.
In 2014, Dr. Henagan attended the first annual Pain Continuum at LSUHCS. Dental implants were the next service Dr. Henagan acquired the ability to provide.
The newest addition to the practice is Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT). This state-of-the-art technology has opened doors to diagnosing treatment in a way never before possible. Dr. Henagan works diligently every day to find new and better ways to deliver the best that dentistry has to offer ... Creating Smiles to Last a Lifetime!
