Dorian Long, D. D. S.
Dr. Dorian Long’s interest in dentistry came from his mother, who was hesitant and shy about her smile until seeking a dentist. He saw the burst in confidence his mother had after the dentist fixed her smile. He sought the profession of dentistry to have profound effect on as many people as possible, just like the dentist he remembered in his childhood had on his mother.
Although born in the city of Dallas, he was raised in Shreveport, Louisiana. He graduated from Caddo Magnet High School. Afterwards, he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology at Louisiana Tech University, where he was also awarded Student of the Year in 2012. He attended Baylor College of Dentistry and earned Doctor of Dental Surgery.
Dr. Long’s faith plays a very important part in his life. He keeps a smile on his face and wishes to bring the best out of everyone he meets.
Breanna loved the doctor.
I love this place! I’ve never been to a dentist that I actually like going to. They give you Shades to protect your eyes from the bright lights! Very friendly and welcoming staff! Dr.Gudiati made me feel like I’ve known him for a while when I just met him that day!!! Don’t even get me started on the whitening trays! They molded my teeth at the beginning of the appointment and by the time I was done with the appointment the trays were ready and customized to my teeth!!! This office is great and I recommend everyone to come in, get your cool shades and whitening trays!!!! 😸😺
