Meet Dr. Shelly Rabalais

Dr. Shelly Rabalais, Dentist in Bossier City - Rabalais Dental Centre

Dr. Shelly Rabalais was raised in Plaucheville, a small town in central Louisiana. The pursuit of her education brought her across the entire state of Louisiana. She earned a bachelor's in biology from the University of Louisiana Monroe, a master's in molecular biology from Louisiana Tech, and finally her Doctorate of Dental Science from LSU Health Science Center in New Orleans.

In 2007, Dr. Rabalais and her husband Brian Plauche' moved to Bossier City. Two years later, in 2009 Dr. Rabalais purchased Dalton Dental Care from Dr. Monte Dalton. Although she put her stamp on the practice in 2011 by changing the name to Rabalais Dental Centre, she and her team continue to maintain the extra special patient care that Dr. Dalton started providing over 25 years ago.

Dr. Rabalais is currently a member of the Northwest Louisiana Dental Association, the American Dental Association (ADA), and the Louisiana Dental Association. She also participates in numerous continuing education classes throughout the year. She has completed extensive continued education on implant dentistry and other leading-edge cosmetic restorative procedures.

In 2014, Dr. Rabalais and her husband welcomed their daughter, Ella, into their family, and they are excited to call Bossier home and raise their family here. She looks forward to providing you and your family with personalized and comfortable dental care.

Dr. Rabalais looks forward to meeting you and your family!

Our team understands that people have different needs for dental treatment and communication, and we've designed our practice philosophy around that very fact. Our goal is not to pressure you into receiving treatments you don’t want or need, but rather to develop a customized treatment plan that addresses your individual needs, goals, and expectations for your smile.
