Dr. Ann Laurent

2016 Steel Magnolia

After graduating from LSU School of Dentistry in 1983, Dr. Ann Laurent was one of only three female dentists in Lafayette. Today, she remains a trailblazer for aspiring women with a practice that helps patients achieve harmony when their outer smile mirrors their inner one. Her personal sense of spirituality informs her passion for beauty and healing in mind, body and spirit, evidenced by her enrollment at the Shalem Institute for Spiritual Formation and support of Fr. Richard Rohr’s Center For Action And Contemplation, Bridge Ministry of Acadiana, and Women’s Symphony League. Balancing her compassionate heart is a zest for friendship, food, and music. “I hope and pray that this synthesis of artistic expression in social action reveals itself in my work, my relationships, and my life!” In the words of Kahlil Gibran, “Work is love made visible.”
