Dr. Barrilleaux received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi. She then attended the University of Mississippi Medical Center where she earned her Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry.
Dr. Barrilleaux was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She knew that she wanted to be a dentist when she was only six years old, because she loved going to her hometown pediatric dentist. As she grew older, Dr. Barrilleaux stuck with her dream of becoming a dentist and pursued the career to help improve the lives of the people in her community. One of the reasons she loves dentistry is because it’s the perfect blend between art and science.
Dr. Barrilleaux says, “I love improving the quality of life for my patients. Giving them the ability to eat, smile, and speak with confidence is very rewarding for me. I hope to continue to change people's lives. At minimum, I want the patients who are fearful of the dentist to find their experiences with me to be relaxing, and to show them that the dental appointments don't have to be scary.”
Dr. Barrilleaux was recently married to her husband, Trent Barrilleaux, who she met while in her first year of dental school. They have one dog together, Callie, who is a collie/shepherd mix. She is a big sister to identical triplet sisters who are six years younger than her.
Outside of the office, Dr. Barrilleaux enjoys working out at spin class, walking Callie around Houston while eating at the local restaurants, and traveling. Not to mention, she is a huge Saints, Astros, and LSU fan! GEAUX TIGERS!
