Our Team

Paul C. Hargis, DDS:
Dr. Hargis is a 1990 graduate of Louisiana College, with a BS in Biology and a minor in Chemistry. He attended LSUSD to earn his DDS degree. He then completed a 2-year residency in hospital dentistry at Charity Hospital in New Orleans. In 1997, Dr. Hargis moved back to Central Louisiana to begin practicing. He took over a clinic in Montgomery, Louisiana, where he served this rural community for 11 years. In 1999, he opened his private practice in Prospect, where he has been the only continually operating dentist in Grant Parish.

Teresa West, RDH:
Teresa West has worked as a hygienist since 1999. She attended Northeast Louisiana University (ULM) for her RDH degree and is licensed in both LA and TN. We were quite fortunate to entice her back to her home state to join our team. Teresa has been with us since 2009.

Mary McLaughlin:UPDATE! Ms. Mary retired on May 17, 2017!   :0(
Mary McLaughlin is our most devoted front desk lady. As of February 17, 2017 she has been with us for 17 years. Before this, she worked as a Certified Patient Activity Director in nursing home care. She is a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. In 2010, she entered semi-retirement, so now works only part-time.
Teresa Traylor:
Teresa Traylor joined us in 2001 as a chairside dental assistant. She earned her EDDA certification in 2002 and assisted Dr. Hargis until 2008. After a two-year hiatus to work closer to home, Teresa moved to our front office in 2010. She is a wealth of information on all things related to insurance, scheduling & treatment planning, and can also fill in in the back when needed.
Katie Sarver:
Katie Sarver has been in the dental field since 2003. She became EDDA certified in 2011 and joined us later that same year. Besides being the cutest thing ever, she is dependable, friendly and a great chairside assistant. Katie is married and lives in Grant Parish. We’re so pleased to have her in Prospect with us.
Gina Kendrew:
Gina is new to dentistry, having moved to HFD in 2016. You'll see and speak with her at the front desk. She worked in a physician's office for years, and before this worked in the ER. Gina is the pickiest grown-up eater we've ever met.
Rachel Gillette Smith:
Rachel is a wealth of knowledge on all things pediatric. She has 12 years experience working in a pedodontic dental practice. She also has more children than the rest of us, AND a sweet little bundle due in January 2018!
LaDonna Hargis:
LaDonna Hargis is our Office Manager. She completed her BS in Psychology and Biology at LC in 1993, and her MSW at LSU in 1998. She joined Dr. Hargis in 1999 to coordinate the building of the Prospect office. LaDonna divides her time between working with us in the dental office and raising the Hargis' three sons.
