Welcome To Westport Periodontics!

Thank you very much for visiting our website, and welcome to our practice! Our goal of this website is simple: we want you to be educated about who we are and what we have to offer. Our practice hopes you find valuable information here about periodontics and how our practice can impact your dental health, aesthetics, and function.

What To Do Before My First Visit?

Please assist us for your initial visit to the office by providing the following information:

  • A list of the medications you are currently taking
  • A current medical history
  • If you have dental insurance, please bring your insurance information or card .  
  • All patients under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation appointment.

What Will We Do At My First Visit?

For the courtesy of our other patients, please try to arrive to your first visit 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time so that any paperwork or administrative questions can be addressed at that time.  We want to give you the maximum time to evaluate you and answer any questions you may have regarding treatment.

We will ensure that we have received the referral and relevant x-rays from your dentist prior to your appointment, however our doctors may require new x-rays in order to diagnose your treatment. We will complete an in-depth medical and dental history and a thorough examination to measure:

  • Your teeth
  • Your periodontal health (the gum and bone tissue surrounding your teeth)
  • Your bite and function
  • Your smile and dental esthetics
  • Your risk factors that may influence treatment

New patient examinations take approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the complexity and treatment options that are available.  We will try to formulate a treatment plan the day of your visit.  In the event of a complex case that requires extensive planning and options, we may request that you return for a treatment planning appointment so that we can have time to develop and review your options in a concise, organized manner.

We Look Forward To Meeting and Helping You!

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!

What Makes Us Different


Westport Periodontics has been the periodontal resource for the St. Louis dental community since 1979. Dr. Schaberg, Campbell, and Barrett have developed skills that allow our practice to offer the most advanced and comprehensive periodontal and dental implant treatment options available.


Whether a member of our staff represents one year or 40 years of experience, patients can expect to be treated like family and offered the highest quality of care. Our staff makes it their priority to ensure that you are fully informed, have been given the full spectrum of choice, and that you understand your treatment plan and follow-up care. We focus on your peace of mind and willingly answer all of your questions. From consultation to follow-up, Westport Periodontics is dedicated to the comfort and care of our patients.


Every patient has different needs. We partner with talented restorative dentists to achieve your goals. We develop a treatment plan to give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Even if you’ve had previous treatment elsewhere, a disappointing result doesn’t have to be permanent. We use our resources to revise and treat previous work, so that you walk away with the optimal, successful outcome you deserve.


When we procure our materials and technology, we source our materials (implants, tissue grafts, and growth factors) from reputable companies with the highest standards for patient safety and predictability of performance. We do not believe in sacrificing quality for profits – your safety and the outcome of your procedure comes first.


Drs. Schaberg, Campbell, and Barrett continually educate themselves and bring this to the dental community to ensure the highest level of care. We pride ourselves on our reputation for being a compassionate and honest practice with uncompromising quality.


Our office is located in Westport with ease of access from multiple major highways making us easily accessible to anyone in the St. Louis area.
