Husband-and-wife team Dr. Michael and Mary Ann Landry combined their backgrounds in dentistry and commercial aviation, respectively, to create a hospitality-oriented atmosphere at their clinic, Consultants in Dental Aesthetics, Mary Ann said.

Michael, who serves as the clinic’s chief operating officer and clinical director, has been a dentist for 41 years while Mary Ann, the CEO and chief visionary officer, previously worked as an international flight attendant and training director for a commercial airline. The couple said they emphasize comfort at their practice to help patients relax.

“Health care has not ever been something that people had choices in,” Michael said. “You showed up, you took the abuse that you got ... but nobody really [treated] you as a human being. So we changed all that.”

In January 2021, the Landrys’ current clinic opened on Louetta Road in Spring. The clinic is filled with amenities, such as silk blankets, essential oils and paraffin wax hand treatments.

The Landrys’ focus on treating others well extends to community work, Mary Ann said.

Before the pandemic, Consultants in Dental Aesthetics partnered with other dentists to host an annual day of free dentistry during which patients received procedures such as cleanings, extractions and fillings at no charge. The couple hopes to reintroduce this event in the near future under a new nonprofit they are in the process of launching dubbed Gift of Dentistry.

“We’re passionate about doing good,” Mary Ann said.
