Our Practice Philosophy

Patients are our number one priority at Westport Periodontics.  Our overall goals are to:

  • Consistently provide the highest level of periodontal care possible. To provide it cheerfully, respectfully and compassionately.
  • Educate our patients on all the available options so that they may choose treatment that is in their best interests, not our best interests.
  • Provide a staff who are the best at what they do, who enjoy their work, and who are seeking the best care for our patients.
  • Provide high quality education and resources to the St. Louis dental community to advance the care to the community we serve.
  • To conserve and maintain teeth when possible, and to offer services to replace teeth when it is not possible.

We think of our patients as our friends and family, and want to earn your trust so we can keep you healthy and happy throughout your life!
