Dr. Caitlin C. Morris, DDS attended the University of New Orleans majoring in Biological Sciences and obtained her DDS from Louisiana State University Dental School in 2022. Dr. Morris began her journey in the dental field over a decade ago through many efforts including: volunteering in nursing homes providing dental prothesis cleaning services, several years with LA Mission of Mercy providing dental care to those in need, dental screenings for the athletes of the Special Olympics, assisting in dental treatment provided with United Cerebral Palsy and by being employed as a dental assistant.

Dr. Morris was raised by three generations of registered nurses; the well being of others – essentially patient care, was a foundational value she was brought up on. Having the opportunity to practice dentistry at Verges Dental Center, who also share this core belief, is what she considers as one of the greatest blessings of her life. “Having a team who works diligently every minute of every day to provide the best care possible to those around us, drives me to excel in the field of dentistry by continually learning and growing. I have joy every morning knowing I am walking into a place filled with kindness and positivity.” – Dr. Morris

Currently residing in her hometown of Franklinton, Dr. Morris enjoys boating the Bogue Chitto, attending the Washington Parish Free Fair and attending church at Westside Emmanuel. She loves any time spent with family and friends. Dancing will always be her favorite pastime and one of her favorite ways to stay fit. She and her husband are expecting their first child at the end of 2022.


Dr. Celine Snow was born and raised in New Orleans. She went to LSU for undergrad, where she received her bachelor’s of science in 2017. Dr. Snow is also a recent graduate from LSU school of dentistry. Her love for dentistry came from her own dental journey, her parents, and through community service. Growing up, she was constantly in the dental chair because of misaligned teeth. She says she basically had metal in her mouth for 11 years!

Dr. Snow always enjoyed going to the dental office as a child and that’s where her initial spark for dentistry came from. She says her parents always taught her the importance of oral hygiene and it’s because of them that she has the teeth she has today. Dr. Snow did a lot of volunteer work at dental clinics in college, and her passion for dentistry continued to grow when she saw how much of a help she could be in the oral health care community. Some fun facts about Dr. Snow is that she is fluent in French, loves to roller skate, and has been doing pottery since 2020! She is so excited to join the Verges dental team.
