A great smile, like all good things in life, takes work. Dr. Dalin and our team make oral healthcare easy for busy families. We’ve found that by truly catering to our patients, dental visits become a pleasure, not just a necessity. Our St. Louis dental office is open six days a week, so you can reserve Saturday appointments if weekdays don’t fit your schedule. We see emergency cases immediately and provide our patients with 24/7 access to their dentist. In addition, your entire family is welcome in our St. Louis dentist's office. We offer comprehensive care, conservative procedures, and modern technology, bringing what we consider to be the best of contemporary dentistry to our patients. You’re more than a patient to us; you’re an individual with unique concerns and needs. The dentist will take time to learn about you, then develop a practical treatment plan to optimize and maintain your beautiful smile. We’ll discuss options and explain procedures, which may involve general dentistry, restorative dentistry, and/or cosmetic dentistry. If you have questions, please ask. And if we can do anything to make you more comfortable, let us know. We are here to serve you!
