Meet The Staff

Our office staff and dental hygienists have over 163 years combined experience in caring for our patients. Our concern for our patients is reflected throughout our office design and modern dental equipment. All of our operatories feature personal televisions and headsets. We know you will find dental care with us a more pleasant experience!

Hygienist:

Hi, my name is Alicia Milliet, R.D.H. I graduated from Louisiana State University School of Dentistry with a Bachelors degree in Dental Hygiene in 1998. I have been a hygienist for 20+ years. I have devoted over ten years of my career, working at Bucktown Dental Care. Hopefully, I am helping patients smile, one at a time.

Hi, my name is Diane Cresson Schwing, R.D.H., M.Ed. I graduated from Loyola University, with a Bachelors degree in Dental Hygiene in 1978. I was a member of the Jesuit Honor Society: Alpha Sigma Nu. I served as President of the New Orleans Dental Hygiene Association and Chairman of the National Children’s Dental Health Month. I also earned my Masters of Education in Guidance & Counseling at Loyola University. I taught at Loyola as a clinical instructor of Dental Hygiene for two years. I worked as a Guidance Counselor at my beloved Alma Mater, Academy of the Holy Angels, for four years. I have enjoyed every minute of working with my brother, Dr. Guy Cresson for 35+ years. My greatest accomplishment is my wonderful husband and four beautiful children. My philosophy is “To see the face of Christ in the beautiful faces of my patients” and “to treat them the way, I would want to be treated.” My passion is: “To teach my patients how to keep their teeth for a lifetime, or until they are 100 years old”! I like to say: A smile cost you nothing, and is one of the greatest gifts you can give a person! As Mother Theresa says, “The beginning of love is a smile”!
