About Us

We were tired of the old model of dentistry, where patients could feel surprised by a diagnosis or sense judgment from their dental team. We’re human, too! We know life is complicated and there can be a lot of things that take priority over your dental health. Our job has always been to meet you where you are–no judgments here–and partner with you to make your smile amazing.

We’re human, too

Our commitment to the amazing community of New Iberia has always been that patients come first--period.


Meet Our Dentists

Dr. Rebecca Charpentier, DDS

“A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.” –William Arthur Ward

Dr. Charpentier views her dental expertise as a resource to make the community of New Iberia and the world a healthier place. Gifted with empathy and a desire to make change, Dr. Charpentier has traveled as far as the Dominican Republic to share her talent with those in need.

She didn’t come by her skills easily. As a graduate of LSU with a degree in Microbiology she then went on to get her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from LSU Dental School in New Orleans.

Dr. Charpentier is a member of the American Dental Association, the Louisiana Dental Association, and the Acadiana Dental Association. She also has advanced training in many areas, including Oral Sedation and Six Month Smiles®.

When she is not working, Dr. Charpentier loves spending time with her family. She keeps busy with her five incredible children: Olivia, Rowan, Vivian, Harrison, and Fiona.

Dr. Madeleine Groth, DDS

“Be the reason someone smiles today.” -Unknown

Dr. Groth is as warm and welcoming as they come. Her passion for dentistry comes from her drive to always be better. She believes there is always something more to learn and something better to bring to her patients.

As a Biology graduate from Milsaps College, she used her passion for the sciences to get her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from LSU.

Dr. Groth enjoys spending time with her husband, Jacob. On the weekends you can find them fishing, cooking, traveling and playing tennis.

Dental Hygienist

Heather has been in the dental field for over 15 years, and her experience shows in the quality of her work. As a hygienist, it is her job to teach our patients the proper way to keep their mouths healthy and clean, and she is excellent at oral hygiene instruction, especially when it comes to our youngest patients. (No doubt having three children of her own helped her hone her chairside skills!)

In her downtime, you can usually find Heather spending quality time with her children, family, and friends.
