Scott M. Hannaman, DDS - Meet Our Team
Gay Hebert - Registered Dental Hygienist
Hailing from both Marrero and Houma, Gay started the dental practice along with her husband, Dr. Edward Hebert, 34 years ago.
Gay Hebert graduated with her Bachelor of Science degree from LSU School of Dentistry Dental Hygiene program in 1984. Gay has continued to educate herself in the latest techniques in the practice of dental hygiene. All of this is an effort to best serve her patients, whom she refers to as her “extended dental family.” Her goal is for them to live with their teeth for the rest of their lives.
“It is truly a family affair,” she says of the practice. “Now my son-in-law Dr. Hannaman is working with us. I feel it has been the best of both worlds with our experience and with the new technology that we incorporated into our practice.”
Gay is involved with her church through choir, A.C.T.S., and other community involvement. She loves exercising, traveling, and backing and cooking. What Gay relishes most is time with her friends and family—particularly her grandchildren.
