Gov. Jindal Appoints Dr. Moreau to State Board

A few weeks ago, Dr. Moreau got a surprise call from a member of the governor's staff. He informed Dr. Moreau that the Governor wanted to know if he would be willing to serve on the State Board of Dentistry.

There are a number of dentists from throughout the state who are nominated from the various ADA constituent societies and then approved by the governor. And then, additionally, the governor appoints a couple of at-large representatives. While it is a huge honor to serve at the governor's request, it is also a weighty and humbling responsibility, particularly under this governor with sweeping ethics reform.

There has already been mounds of paperwork to read up on and serious study time to get calibrated for upcoming examinations of dentists seeking to license in Louisiana. I must say he has taken all that on full throttle with the same determination and focus he has applied to his continuing education in advanced dentistry and practice development.

I'm very proud that my husband caught the governor's eye as someone of honesty and integrity with a lucid, rational perspective on responsibilities of dentists toward serving the public. I have no doubt he will serve the public well, will not let the governor or organized dentistry down, and will make all of us who know and love him even prouder than we already are.

NOTE: His position on the board will not in any way alter his office hours or his availability to our MoreSmiles patient family.
