Do Come True
I had dreamt of being a doctor since childhood. I knew I had to study hard and stay at the top to get there. My family and I lived in New Orleans until I was 10 years old at which time we moved to Amite. My mom still resides at that residence down Country Club Rd. She had that property since before I was born and we use to come up about every weekend growing up and stayed in the small barn and rode horses.
When we moved to Amite permanently, I commuted to school in Covington. I graduated from St. Scholastica Academy in 1991 as Salutatorian and went on to college in Tennessee at Vanderbilt University where I received a 4 yr Bachelor of Science degree in Molecular Biology.
I then went on to four years of dental school in New Orleans where I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree (DDS).
I always wanted to come back to my country roots and practice in Amite which I have done so for over 15 years. I have been in my Amite office located at 200 NE Central Ave for over 12 years. I have two beautiful children who I absolutely adore. My other passion outside of the dental office is riding horses and working on the Wind Valley Farm.
I love our small town of Amite and have enjoyed so much working and living here. The town has a great group of down to earth people. I'm hoping the Givens dental office will continue one day through one or both of my children.
I invite all to come join our cheerful practice. We welcome emergencies and new patients. 985-747-8600
