About Our Practice
Born and raised in Acadiana, Dr. Tony Soileau is no stranger to the many things that make this such a great place to live, work, play and raise a family. In Acadiana smiling comes easy and happens often. It was this atmosphere that contributed to his desire to treat, protect and even create smiles. His passion grew into one of the community’s finest and most respected practices – Smiles by Soileau.
In addition to general and family dentistry, Dr. Soileau and his team also have a separate division, Louisiana Sleep Solutions. Armed with years of experience, special training, and the latest sleep apnea treatment technology, Louisiana Sleep Solutions offer pain-free, and less-invasive treatment options than C-PAP treatment.
