Lalit G. Thanki, DDS


Thank you for your interest in our practice.  I have been a Louisiana local since 1983.  I am proud to say that LSU is my alma mater.  I graduated from LSU, Baton Rouge, with a major in Zoology and minor in Chemistry in 1988.  Then having earned my doctorate from LSU (New Orleans), I practiced briefly in New Orleans as an associate, but soon aquired a teaching post at University of Pennsylvania.  My heart pulled me back to  Louisiana, and found myself back home, in our fair city of Lafayette.  I have practiced with my wife, Jyoti, in Lafayette since 1994. We have greatly enjoyed the hospitality and rich culture only found in Acadiana.

In order to serve fellows of Acadiana with the best in dental care, I have devoted many hours of continuing education and much investment in the latest technology.  I am proud to earn a fellowship from the Academy of General Dentistry, and Diplomate from American Acadamy of Dental Sleep Medicine.  I am able to offer services encompassing major fields of dentistry, such as Orthodontic, Periodontic surgery (gum treatment), Oral Surgery; Prosthodontic (complex full mouth restorations, and prosthesis),  as well as Asthetic dentistry.  The technlogy of dentistry has vastly changed over the last twenty years.  I am able to complete crowns, inlay, onlays, and veneers  in one day, without a provisional.  We have lasers to detect decay, as well as  gum treatment, and soft tissue surgery.  Our digital x-rays are able to generate crystal clear images to identify problems.  Our Tekscan device is able to analyse the balance of your bite force without any doubt.  I can accurately place implants with computer guided technology.  We use a comfortable suction device that pulls away all the toxic substances, and bacteria from your mouth and allow accecc to hard to reach areas. There are numerous other amazing devices that will impress you.

As you can tell, I love what I do.  Dentistry is an art form for me, and so it has become my hobby.  Incidentally, please visit my other site www.brushstroke.yolasite.com  where you can see my other passion - painting.  Some of my pieces are on display in my office.  And if you are upto it, I would love engage in a friendly game of chess with you.
