Meet Dr. Susan Fallahi

A few questions for Susan Fallahi, DDS

Diplomate, American Board of Pediatric Dentistry

You grew up in Cincinnati, graduated from dental school at The Ohio State University, then completed your pediatric dental residency right here in New Orleans at Louisiana State University. That’s quite a change for a Midwestern girl. Tell me a little about how you ended up in The Big Easy.

My husband and I met in Ohio. We came down to New Orleans to check out the residency program and knew right away that this was where we wanted to start our family. Both my kids are New Orleanians now.

Now you’re running a successful pediatric dental clinic right in Uptown. How’s that going?

Our patients and parents are amazing. I really feel like the community has embraced me and I hope they feel the same way.

With all you have going on, I’m sure it’s difficult to keep up with the latest advancements and fancy new gizmos in the field. Have you been able to find the time?

I keep memberships in a lot of organizations to stay up-to-date: the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Dental Association, and the Louisiana Dental Association to name a few. It’s important to follow the latest research. The parents want to know that I’m providing the most informed care for their kids. I would want that for mine.

You work hard, that’s obvious. What’s your guilty pleasure? How do you blow off steam?

Nintendo. I rule at Super Mario!
