Meet your Dentists
Dr. Lisa Germain
Dr. Lisa Germain is an American Board Certified Endodontist in private practice in New Orleans, Louisiana. She received her DDS Degree from the University of Maryland and her specialty degree in Endodontics as well as her Master of Science from Boston University School of Graduate Dentistry. She is a Fellow of both the Misch Implant Institute and the American Academy of Oral Implantologists. Dr. Germain has maintained a private practice in New Orleans, LA since 1984.
While practicing endodontics, Dr. Germain was asked to diagnose and treat many patients suffering from facial pain not odontogenic in origin. This gave her the impetus to pursue a special interest in the diagnosis and treatment of facial pain syndromes not caused by a toothache. Her passion and expertise in the use of botulinum neurotoxin for therapeutic use, as well as cosmetics, grew from this challenge. Her textbook, “Cosmetic Injectables and Therapeutics- the Ultimate Guide for the Dental Office” is currently being published by Edra Publishing and will be available for purchase in the spring of 2023. Recently she launched botoxbootcamp.com so that she could help train and mentor other dental professionals in this discipline.
Dr. Germain lectures internationally on both botulinum neurotoxin use for the dental practitioner and endodontics. She is very proud to serve as Clinical Director for DC Dental Company where she developed a webinar series that produces bimonthly lectures devoted to continuing education for clinicians on the most cutting-edge information available in the field of dentistry. She is the author of multiple journal articles and has been named a top educator by the publication “Dentistry Today” for the past decade. Her opus magnum is a children’s book which she both wrote and illustrated called Santa’s Christmas Eve Toothache. It is available on Amazon.com.
