Our Team


Dr. Gene Dongieux

In his 50 years of orthodontics with over 20,000 satified patients, Dr. Dongieux has constantly challenged himself, traveling the world over to study and work with the best orthodontic researchers in world, to do better for his patients. His mission – improved orthodontic procedures with minimal aesthetic impact.

"We treat the whole patient. One's smile is very important. It is the visage that we use to create our best impression in all circumstances: parties, meeting friends, or business meetings. If your smile is pleasing, with great looking straight, white teeth, your are more likely to be more confident and outgoing than if your teeth were stained and crooked. Through our years of creating great smiles, we have found that our patients leave the office feeling great about themselves and exude more confidence." - Dr. Gene Dongieux

New Orleans Family Orthodontist


Eli Orthodontics is a New Orleans family orthodontist that looks forward to serving the needs of your entire family. Our practice works with kids, teens and adults, and we have options for every age group!

Younger patients often start with expanders around the age of 6 or 7, whereas teens are best suited for traditional metal or ceramic braces. Adults appreciate the simplicity of Invisalign clear aligners, which are worn as “slip covers” over the teeth.

Let our New Orleans family braces orthodontist help you choose the best orthodontic services for your needs and deliver a smile that you can be proud of!


Eli Orthodontics has been in business for over 50 years. We are currently on our third generation of customers, which means that many older adults are walking around still satisfied with their results! Our family orthodontist in New Orleans, LA has built a reputation based on customer-centered orthodontic services, cutting-edge technology and expertly trained staff.

Consider that by choosing our New Orleans Invisalign specialist for your needs, you will receive:

Personalized attention and treatment plans

Latest equipment and technology

Affordable pricing with attractive financing options

Convenient, on-time appointments

Highly trained and qualified orthodontists with updated training


Our New Orleans family orthodontist is pleased to bring you the latest in orthodontic care. We offer standard metal braces, ceramic braces and Invisalign. We do recommend metal braces for correcting severe issues that clear aligners cannot fix. Metal braces are also more affordable than other options, and they are sturdy and durable. This makes them a great pick for kids and teens.

If your teen is concerned about their appearance, our family braces orthodontist in New Orleans, LA highly recommends clear braces. They are the same size and shape as metal braces but they have clear brackets and bands. This makes them less noticeable than metal braces but with the same durability.

Of course, we can't help but recommend Invisalign. Our New Orleans Invisalign specialist will explain the benefits of this treatment for you, which is ideal for older teens and adults. The clear aligners are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want as well as brush and floss as regular. This prevents gum disease and cavities.

Invisalign is also comfortable, with no metal brackets or wires. As our Invisalign specialist in New Orleans, LA will explain to you, this treatment is fully digitalized, meaning that you can see what your smile will look like through the phases.
