About Our Lafayette Dentists

Dr. Ashley PriceDr. Ashley Price

Dr. Price grew up loving the dentist. This made her a bit of an outsider in her family, which spent their lives only tentatively going to the dentist. Seeing their fear is one of the factors which led her to the dental profession. One of her goals is to help patients feel as comfortable going to the dentist as she did growing up.

To pursue that dream, Dr. Price earned a bachelor’s degree in microbiology from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge in 2002. After her undergrad, she went on to receive her Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree from the LSU Dental School in New Orleans in 2006.

After her doctorate, Dr. Price moved back to Lafayette to be near family and practice dentistry in her hometown. She loves getting to know her patients and wants them to feel like family.

She loves helping fearful patients experience pain-free dental care, sometimes for the first time in their lives. Once they are comfortable in the dental chair, they can move onto bigger goals. “I love giving my patients the smile they never dreamed they could have,” Dr. Price says.

When you are passionate about your field, you never stop learning. Dr. Price invests in post-graduate training at over twice the rate required by the state, earning more than 100 hours every two years. She will always keep on the cutting edge of technology and developments in order to care for her family of patients the best way possible.

DR. PRICE AFTER HOURS
In addition to serving the community as a trusted oral health provider, Dr. Price loves serving as a Eucharistic Minister and Edge Youth Group Minister. Her strong faith helps her to maintain a positive attitude and keep the well-being of others as her central focus, inside and outside the operatory.

One of her biggest joys is spending time with her husband Jeremy, their two children, A.J. and Marissa, and their dog, Louie. Marissa plays travel volleyball and the fiddle, and A.J. plays football and baseball. Both children are Altar Servers at their church. When they are not at church, you can often find their family attending LSU and UL sporting events.

Dr. Chelsea GuilliotDr. Chelsea Guilliot

Dr. Chelsea Guilliot has been dedicated to dentistry since a young age. “Growing up,” she says, “I admired my dentist, and never had a negative experience.” In grade school, she realized not many people could share that mentality, so she decided she wanted to follow in her dentist’s footsteps and show people that a dentist is not something to be feared. Dr. Guilliot has dedicated every day to ensure every patient leaves the office without pain — and with a smile.

Dr. Guilliot received her Bachelor of Science degree in biology from the University of North Carolina, Wilmington before earning her Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) from Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine. She furthered her education by receiving her implant certification from the Louisiana State University (LSU) Implant Continuum. Dr. Guilliot has participated in numerous dental missions and events in and out of the country and intends to do many more.

Dr. Guilliot started working with Dr. Price at the beginning of 2018. “There’s always an opportunity to learn something new in dentistry to better treat your patients. I am grateful to be in a field that encourages me to always learn and grow to help others. To have the ability to create smiles that can change people’s lives — there’s no better position to be in.”

DR. GUILLIOT AFTER HOURS
Originally from Pennsylvania, Dr. Guilliot left for college in North Carolina and decided living where it snows was not for her. She met her husband while attending dental school in Florida, and they moved back to his hometown of Lafayette, Louisiana, after graduation. Dr. Guilliot says, “Louisiana is unlike anywhere else I’ve lived. The sense of community is much stronger and close-knit. Even though you can’t beat the beaches of Florida, seasons of North Carolina and mountains of Pennsylvania, Louisiana is home. This is where I want my family to grow. I am blessed my path has brought me here to stay!”

Dr. Chelsea Guilliot is married to Dr. Jared Guilliot, who works as a general dentist in the downtown Lafayette area with his father, Dr. Albert Guilliot. During her downtime, she enjoys spending time with family, which may include some trips to new places here and abroad. While at home, Dr. Guilliot loves doing DIY house projects and other hands-on crafts and playing with their two dogs, Nola and Ringo. They are looking forward to expanding their family in the near future.
