Meet the Doctor

Dr. Vaughan has been practicing dentistry for 31 years at the same location. Originally from LaPlace, Dr. Vaughan and his family moved to Central in 1967. He graduated from Central High School in 1976. After completing his biochemistry degree at LSU, he continued onto dental school and completed his training at LSU School of Dentistry in 1984. Then, he opened his practice at its current location.     

Offering all phases of dentistry, Dr. Vaughan has the experience and expertise to handle even the most difficult cases. "I'm enjoying dentistry more now than ever," he says. "I have a great staff. They make my life easy and our patients feel comfortable."  

When he is not practicing dentistry, Dr. Vaughan enjoys spending time on his boat or farm, where he raises registered Beefmaster cattle.     

Dr. Walter Vaughan, originally from La Place, attended St. Alphonsus Catholic School and graduated from Central High School in 1976. He was involved in 4H and baseball in his youth and stays involved in his lifelong passions by supporting the youth of the community through his donations to 4-H.

After graduating from Central High, he attended LSU and majored in biochemistry. In 1984, Dr. Vaughan received his Dental degree from LSUSD and he returned home and opened his practice in Central on Hooper Road. At the same location for over 31 years, he continues to work with long-term staff members – some that have been with him since the beginning. 

He and his wife, Brenda, a Central native and Central High School graduate, live in Central and have three children and three grandchildren. His hobbies include spending time with his family, canoeing, camping, piloting, collecting and maintaining antique tractors and managing his registered Beefmaster cattle at his farm north of Central.
