Hood Dental Care & Our Livingston Parish Roots:

Dr. Ed Hood, founder of Hood Dental Care, was born and raised in Livingston Parish. Like many on our team, he went to Denham Springs High School and graduated in the Class of 1977. After securing his DDS from LSU, he returned to Livingston Parish to open Hood Dental Care. Thankfully, the community has rallied behind local dentistry to allow us to open five (5) convenient locations throughout the region.

We are proud members of the Livingston Parish Chamber of Commerce and appreciate all the support the community has provided us over the decades!

Our resident Livingston dentists, Drs. Holly Cantu and Sydney Lahasky are also Louisiana natives. Dr. Cantu was also raised in neighboring Denham Springs and is a also a graduate of Denham Springs High School. Likewise, she is also a graduate of LSU. After completing Dental School, Dr. Cantu returned home to Denham Springs and Livingston Parish to settle down and establish her family’s roots where they remain today.

Dr. Lahasky grew up in New Iberia and moved to Baton Rouge to also attend LSU School of Dentistry, where she graduated top of her class! Like Dr. Cantu, Dr. Lahasky has decided to make Livingston Parish home and she’s excited to help local families with their oral healthcare.
