Meet Dr. Kris Ruebsamen, Our In-House Specialist
Dr. Kristopher Ruebsamen grew up in the Baton Rouge area and is a graduate of LSU and LSU School of Dentistry. His desire to provide patients with exceptional dental care led him to continue his education with a 2-year residency in the specialty area of endodontics (root canal therapy).
Dr. Ruebsamen prides himself on helping patients keep their natural teeth. His “quality over quantity” approach will have you leaving our office raving about the comfortable, thorough care you received from start to finish. Beneath the first and second layers of teeth, there’s a pulp, or nerve, that delivers sensations to the brain, including heat, cold, and pain. Whether from decay or physical trauma, this nerve can become damaged and infected, which in some cases can cause pain. Dr. Ruebsamen is here to perform gentle root canal therapy, which removes the damaged nerve to relieve your pain and restore your oral health.

Here’s What Patients Are Saying About Us…
“I decided to have Main Street Dental Care take care of my dental needs because of the excellent service by Dr. LeFebvre and the rest of his staff. On all of my visits, I was always given such special treatment, always felt at home, and the staff treated me as if I were like family when I was there. Dr. LeFebvre transformed my smile with 6 month braces and changed my attitude from never wanting to smile to “WOW! I love my smile!” The continuity of care that I received at Main Street Dental Care was exquisite, and I would refer all of my friends and family to Dr. LeFebvre.”
— Jacqueline S., Patient of Dr. LeFebvre who traveled from Terrebonne Parish for Six Month Smiles™ Braces.
“I had a bad experience growing up with our family dentist. Because of that, as an adult, I was unwilling to go to the dentist. I did not take care of necessary dental treatment and did not have routine exams for so long because of my fear. Ultimately, I had to have dental work done and chose to see Dr. LeFebvre. I was given several options to help make my visits more pleasant. The staff was great, and I am so much more comfortable now going back for my dental maintenance and treatment. I am not neglecting my necessary dental treatment anymore, thanks to Dr. LeFebvre and his staff.”
— Kaye W., Patient of Dr. LeFebvre.
