Dr. Rae Scruggs
Dr. Rae Scruggs is a third-generation dentist who grew up watching her dad and grandfather serve the community in life-change ways. Growing up she watched her dad serve on mission trips around the world and give out free dentistry. He shared his awe-inspiring stories of peoples whos’ quality of life was completely changed because of the work he helped with. This initially sparked Dr. Scruggs interest in Dentistry along with her love of working with her hands and being creative.
Dr. Scruggs attended LSU for her undergraduate degree in Biology and received her DDS from LSU School of Dentistry in New Orleans. Her favorite part of dentistry is seeing a patient look in the mirror and seeing their new smile for the first time. She loves taking a patient that is fearful and unsure about the future of their mouth and giving them the knowledge and confidence to take control of their life again.
She is excited about meeting patients, serving in the community by volunteering and working with her dad. She is passionate about volunteering to do free screenings for homeless teenagers and the large, impoverished area in Shreveport.
In her free time, Dr. Scruggs enjoys spending time with her family. She has two pets Zara and Nora and is expecting her first child, a little girl, and who knows she might be the fourth dentist in the family!
