Founded in 2014, Guidry and Horaist Orthodontics was born from a shared passion for orthodontic care and a longstanding friendship between Dr. Guidry and Dr. Horaist. Their journey began in their early years of education at the LSU School or Dentistry, where they both shared an interest in specializing in orthodontics. Throughout the years, they kept in close contact and always talked about joining forces to create a practice that would offer the best possible patient experience. Their shared commitment to providing exceptional customer service and high-quality care led Dr. Guidry and Dr. Horaist to join as partners and establish Guidry and Horaist Orthodontics, which proudly serves the Acadiana region.

Dr. David Guidry and Dr. Douglas Horaist, both highly trained and dedicated orthodontic specialists, are excited to offer patients of all ages the most comfortable and rewarding orthodontic experience possible. The doctors work with each patient to tailor a personalized treatment plan to meet their specific needs and goals, using the latest technology and up-to-date techniques. The new location will allow for more availability to new and current patients, as well as offering more space and amenities to make patients feel right at home.

“As our practice continues to grow, it became necessary for us to move to a larger space that will allow us to better serve our patients and offer more availability to new and current patients,” said Dr. Guidry and Dr. Horaist.

Guidry & Horaist Orthodontics currently has three locations, including Lafayette, Crowley, and Morgan City. The Lafayette location at 202 Feu Follet Road will remain open until the new location on Camellia Blvd. is ready for occupancy.
