The best time to learn implant surgery is right now.



After graduation from Kilbourne High School and NLU, Dr. Costello received his doctorate from LSU School of Dentistry in 2005. Dr. Costello decided not to specialize after dental school even though he finished first in his class. Instead, he elected to focus his practice on implant surgery and restorations. He is a member of American Academy of Implant Dentistry, Academy of General Dentistry, American Dental Association and Northeast Louisiana Dental Association. He completed the MCG/AAID Comprehensive Training Course in Implant Dentistry in 2009. In 2011, he became one of four Louisiana dentists to be awarded board certification and Associate Fellowship in Implant Dentistry by the AAID. He is also one of the few general dentists in Northeast Louisiana who is certified in IV Sedation.

Now Dr. Costello shares his passion of implant dentistry with others by teaching implant surgery. He has taught nationally and internationally with IMPLANT KNOW HOW and AIE.

Dr. Costello and his wife, Carla, have two sons, Connor and Ethan. Dr. Costello enjoys taking his boys fishing and hunting and hanging out with his family.
