Dr. Robin Hebert

Professional History and Education

Dr. Herbert Graduated from the University of Lousiana at Lafayette in 2002 with a Major in Biology and a Minor in Chemistry. "I always knew I wanted to go into the Medical field, but was just unsure of which dicipline. Around my last year in college I observed area dentists and saw a few extraction cases as well as crown and bridge cases. I knew then that Dentistry was the field I wanted to get into. When a position came open at Theriot Family Dental Care I was excited to apply. Not only was it a the type of family oriented practice I wanted, but I had met Dr. Soirez some years before and she told me what a pleasant atmosphere it was to work in.

Personal Interests

Dr. Hebert is the youngest of 3 children—she has one brother and one sister. Her father runs a family owned grocery store. Her mother is a registered nurse. She met her husband her semester of college. She was married in July of 2003. Currently, they have two children: a boy and a girl.
