Your Ruston Dentist

Dr. Patrick Stuckey

Dr. Stuckey was born and raised right here in Ruston. He's a graduate of both Ruston High School and Louisiana Tech University, and he's proud to offer modern dental care for patients in his hometown. After earning his DDS from Louisiana State University’s School of Dentistry, he came back to Ruston and has been serving the community for over 30 years.

One of Dr. Stuckey’s favorite things about dentistry is the relationships he builds with his patients. He is dedicated to giving every person who walks through our door a highly personalized experience, which means that he always takes the time to discuss your needs, preferences, and goals.

As a member of both the American Dental Association and the Louisiana Dental Association, you can trust that you'll always receive high quality care at our office.

Dr. Stuckey is a proud father, and when he isn't working, you can find him spending time with his family and visiting his children. His son, Beau, is a graduate of LSU and lives in Colorado where he is an orthopedic surgical specialist. His daughter, Katie, graduated from Ole Miss and is completing her fourth year at Southern College of Optometry in Memphis TN.

If you're looking for a family-friendly, down-to-earth dentist in Ruston, Dr. Stuckey would love to meet you!
