He then attended the LSU School of Dentistry, graduating with his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree in 1997. He is a strong advocate for continuing education, and believes that professionals should always strive to learn the best methods to care for their patients. To that end, he participates in various continuing education courses and study clubs to advance his knowledge of dentistry, including the Atlanta Seattle Study Club, the Gwinnett Challenge Study Club, the Fortune Platinum Circle, and the Hinman Dental Society. He has received advanced training in CEREC one-visit crowns.

As a dentist, Dr. Lacour is blessed with a great team who join him in their commitment to build lasting relationships with patients. He states, “We put great emphasis on personal care for each and every patient. As dental professionals, it is our job to educate and inform others of the importance of their dental health and how it is so important to overall health. I want my patients to understand their dental issues and then offer them options on how to achieve lasting dental health. Dental health is important both aesthetically and functionally. A smile is so important and truly can affect how people feel about themselves – you should feel good when you smile! Discomfort when eating or sleeping or during times of stress can greatly affect a person and there are many great options for patients to help alleviate these issues. I want my patients to know that my team and I are here to listen to them and work with them towards achieving a smile that they love and also achieving optimal dental health.”
Dr. Lacour met his wife Andre’ in college. They have been married for 23 years, and have four children – Cierra, Ellie, Holden, and Beckett. Their children are very involved in football, baseball, and soccer, and keep them quite busy. In their down time, they enjoy being outdoors, playing board games, and spending time together. Dr. Lacour’s hobbies include fishing, tennis, golf, and helping coach his son’s football and baseball teams.
