Patient Info

Many people are filled with anxiety at the mere thought of visiting the dentist. At Downtown Dental, we realize that going to the dentist isn’t on most people’s favorites list, so we have worked hard to ensure that our office provides a comforting environment that is staffed with experienced professionals who genuinely care.

We Offer Convenient Office Hours

We know lives are busy, and it can be tough to make the time for dental appointments when your schedule is already full.

We are open over the lunch hour so you can fit in an appointment during the workday, and we are conveniently located in downtown New Orleans’ Central Business District to make it easy for busy professionals to take care of their oral health.

We Provide the Services You Need

From crowns and bridges to dental implants, and from veneers to teeth whitening, we offer the general, cosmetic, and restorative services you need. You can also give us a call if you have a dental emergency, and we can usually get you in that same day.

We Stay Current with the Latest in Dental Technology

Dr. Rathke and the rest of his team pride themselves on staying current with the latest updates and information as well as dental technology.

Modern dental technology enables us to make more accurate diagnoses. Problems can also be detected earlier, so treatment is often less invasive—and less expensive. Dental technology also goes a long way toward improving the patient experience because it usually means greater comfort and less time in the dental chair.

We Offer Budget-Friendly Payment Terms

We don’t want concerns about paying for dental treatment to keep our patients from getting the care they need, so we offer a number of different payment options. We provide an in-house membership plan, which covers preventive care and offers discounts on other treatments.

 For our patients who have insurance, we are pleased to accept most insurance companies. For our patients who do not have insurance, we accept third-party financing through CareCredit for treatment. We have an in-office financing program for procedures such as veneers, implants, crown, bridges, dentures, and oral surgery. We also accept most major credit cards.

If you have concerns or questions about payment before you see us, be sure to give us a call. Our expert staff is here to help!

We Look Forward to Meeting You!
