Dr. Mayda Ferguson
Dr. Mayda Ferguson was born in La Habana, Cuba, but has lived in the Metairie area since she was a young girl. She is a graduate of Bonnabel High School and went on to earn two Bachelor of Science Degrees in Zoology and Microbiology at Louisiana State University. After completing her doctorate in dentistry in 2000, she continued her training with a General Practice Residency at the VA Medical Center in New Orleans the following year. She has been in private practice since that time and remains a constant learner, earning a Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry in the summer of 2013. She constantly works to stay current with all of the latest dental techniques and technology by attending many continuing education classes.
Within the office, Dr. Ferguson leads the team by engendering a positive attitude, supporting the staff, and facilitating management and clinical seminars to ensure our patients receive excellent care, have their needs and concerns met, and have a great overall experience in our office. Dr. Ferguson enjoys caring for patients of all ages with a comprehensive approach, open communication, and a warm, friendly touch.
When not practicing dentistry, she keeps busy as a mother of two children. She can be found on weekends driving to and from softball games with her daughter or walking their rescue puppy, Nikko, with her son at the park. She enjoys family time, traveling, attending any New Orleans festival, and a little salsa dancing.
