Livingston Parish’s Local Dentists

Thanks to our neighbors and friends, Hood Dental Care now operates five dental practices in the local community. And we’re a local business through and through too, as nearly all the team members, including the Hood Family, are born and raised locals to Livingston Parish. It’s actually kind of funny how many of us went to Denham Springs High School and LSU,  and our Watson location is nearly identical.

Dr. Andrew Hood grew up in the Denham Springs home of his dad, Dr. Ed Hood. With ambitions to follow in his dad’s footsteps, Andrew also attended both Denham Springs High School and LSU. Once he completed his DDS, he returned home to help the family tradition of bringing healthy smiles and oral healthcare to their neighbors in town.

Dr. Danny Marrazzo is one of the lone team members who wasn’t born in Livingston Parish, but don’t worry, he grew up a couple of hours away in Alexandria, LA. However, he does join the rest of the pack when he attended LSU to secure his DDS and he now calls Denham Springs home.

Hood Dental Care and the doctors are members of the Livingston Parish Chamber of Commerce and appreciate all the support the community has shown them over the years.
