DR Thomas E O'Connor DMD PC
I went through initial tests with another dentist, but switched to Dr. O'Connor because he would provide more and a better treatment plan for thousands less. His office is smaller, but professional and personable, the other seemed all about the money. I posted a question on the website and within minutes, Dr. O'Connor himself called me back and talked for 20 minutes about my situation! I was hooked. They got me in quickly, were informative, honest, kind and attentive. Diane explained everything so well. I had permanent fixed implant surgery on March 15, 2017, and couldn't be happier with my treatment. They handed me a mirror after and I cried and said thank you many times. I can't even find the words to describe how much this surgery meant to me and when I looked in that mirror, I knew I had done the right thing and Dr. O'Connor and his staff were the perfect ones to do it. They are absolutely awesome and are now my new dentist for life!! If you are contemplating this surgery, do yourself a BIG favor and go to Dr. O'Connor. I trust them completely! I will never again be ashamed to talk or smile or laugh, it's done wonders for my self esteem already and Dr. O'Connor and his staff are TRULY happy for me. Thanks Dr.!!!!

Eat Right Dentures
I have to admit before I called, I was more than little apprehensive. Watching his television ads for the $99.00 dentures. Thoughts came into mind of, humans standing in line, slapping a set of one-size fits all teeth and pushed out the door. I made the call. That appointment changed every thought I had! I first met one of assistants, Nancy. She explained my choices in dentures. Afterwards, Dr. Meyers came in and talked to me. Looked in my toothless mouth and told him about the work I had done before coming to him. Trying to keep my own teeth. I lose that battle. Made another appointment and that night I had teeth! After a couple days, I had to go in for minor adjustment. It's been a month now and I couldn't be happier!!! The fit is great and my self–esteem is up at 1000%. Dr. Meyers, and his staff are the best. Listening and giving you a relaxed feeling. The most important thing, I never felt shamed by anyone. I will be a patient of Dr. Meyers for life. Be it my or his! LOL

Wonderful! Dr. Rosinski is amazing! I have had so many issues with my teeth over the last ten years and I didn't think I would ever eat or smile comfortably again. I had major dental anxiety and waited until I literally couldn't take the pain and embarrassment any longer. The entire office staff is so pleasant! I told them about my anxiety and they assured me I was in good hands, and would be well taken care of. They were absolutely right! Dr. Rosinski is so gentle and caring. She explained everything in detail and answered all of my questions. I dreaded having teeth pulled, but experienced NO swelling and NO pain and was back at work the following morning. I was also pleasantly surprised about how quick and easy the root canals were. I wish that I had known that choosing the right dentist was the biggest step. I love this office and I could not be happier with the work I've had done here!

My daughter had previous dental work done, by a previous dentist somewhere else, that was done poorly and causing her extra pain. Considering all the work she's already had done, she really didn't want to visit another dentist, but once we got there and she saw how inviting the place was for a child, she calmed down. Dr.Jobe was very good with her and I appreciate how thorough of an explanation gave about the treatment my daughter was going to need to fix the previous work. They were very quick to get her in to get everything fixed as well. The secretary was awful very helpful and very concerned with making sure we were completely happy with the office and her visit. We are very grateful that she has such an amazing dentist now!

Dr. Mark Hesker DDS
I have been going to this office since I was a young child ( at least 10yrs old -- broken tooth, OUCH)Now that I am 29yrs old I still go to Dr. Hesker. It has become the most enjoyable experience. I needed to rush for an appointment as I was in a job transition and accommodations were made quite easily. I sat in the chair for a couple of fillings and to my pleasant enjoyment I was able to watch my favorite tv channel as I laid back in the chair. Excellent care and courtesy. Friendly staff. I'm never given guilt trips for not being PERFECT. I love it!BTW, when I was 10 and broke my tooth, Dr. Hesker came in on a Saturday for that emergency. Thank you Hesker Dental!

for the past two days i was in extreme pain so i made some phone calls and they were the cheapest so i made my apointment and when i went in for a simple surgical extraction of my wisdom tooth, they made it a wonderful experience they only took one xray to save me money and the doctor was a genius with getting me numb and it took about 15 minutes and before i knew it the tooth was gone (it was over in approximately 1 minute) and i didnt feel a thing. even after the fact im in almost no pain and i feel like i could even go to work. the dentists assistants were also very nice and very professional if i ever need a dentist again i know where i will be going

Richard Bernstein DDS
I have been going to this Dental Office for over 20 years now. Actually, my entire family uses this dental office. All the staff have been prompt, financial understanding, professional, courteous, caring, family oriented. In fact, all 3 of my children have seen the Dentists here and my children have never complained or never been scared of the staff. The dental office have worked with all my insurances as I and my wife have change jobs many times. We will continue to go here and enjoy the services they provide. I assure any person looking at these reviews, this place is top notch!!!

The dentists and dental assistants were great, however the nurses and secretaries were rude and unprofessional at times. Overall I was offended after my husband and I were seen here. There were complications with our insurance (that I tried to explain but was ignored) at no fault of our own but the staff here could've handled it much better. They repeatedly told us we were uninsured and treated us less than professional, I believe, for that reason. I will not be going back. I prefer to be treated with respect and professionalism by whomever I am giving my money or business to.

I am so thankful to have found VivaSmiles. Dr. Gomes and her wonderful staff make you feel completely at ease. Before coming here I would be very anxious and think about the upcoming dental appointment so by the time I reached the appt I was a total wreck. Vivasmiles does a great job at explaining the technical process of Neuromuscular Dentistry and how it all works. I am thankful for the time that they all took to spend with me to make me feel more at ease. I now look forward to coming to the office for my treatments

Scott R Holdridge - State Farm Insurance Agent
My family & I have been with Scott & his team since we moved to stl in 2006. They have always provided us with warm & professional service. They made sure we had all the right coverages on our car,home & life insurance & were very knowledgeable. He is a great neighborhood agent & they always treat you like family. They were there for us when we had a car accident & went above & beyond. Highly recommend State Farm & especially this agent & his team.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
