Our Goal

Working together, hand in hand with our patients and staff, Dr. Meagan has spent countless hours designing and refining this practice so that she and her entire team can offer our patients a comfortable, safe, and totally professional environment.

From the comfort and calmness of our waiting room to the molded practice room chairs, right on down to the smallest dental instrument. All of it has been examined, tested, and judged up to our high standards. Along the way, we’ve never strayed from the path our goal has taken us. We’ve always demand more from ourselves by meeting and exceeding our patient’s expectations.  

We’ve never entertained the idea that our practice could be acquired by a corporate dentistry conglomerate, turning patients into dollar signs.  We have only expanded our practice when necessary, so that we can meet all the needs of our growing list of patients, adding hygienists, and other important staff members so that we can professionally, skillfully, and efficiently serve the dental needs of the Belleville, IL and Fairview Heights, MO area community. And along with expansions and improvements, we’ve never lost sight of our #1 goal: Patients always come first. 

We’re always happy to answer any questions you might have about your dental concerns. We value your complete understanding of any treatments we recommend. 

Let Us Give You Your Smile Back

Whether you are interacting with colleagues in the office, on a remote Zoom call with an important client or your boss, or meeting friends for a night out on the town, your radiant smile is often the first impression you project. A bright, healthy smile can not only show off your self-confidence, but it can also open doors for a bright professional future.  We believe that a dazzling smile is one of your most important personal assets you can have.

However, as much as good oral health is important to your appearance, self-esteem, and confidence, we also know that taking care of your teeth and gums benefit your all-around health as well. 

Because your mouth is the entry point to your digestive and respiratory tracts, some bacteria from cavities or gum infections can cause disease. Scientists, doctors, and dentists know that there’s a definite correlation between oral health and overall wellness. Gum disease can be linked to a host of illnesses, including heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disease, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis and more.

That’s one of the reasons we offer high-quality dental care so that we can keep your teeth and gums at their peak of health, while protecting your overall wellness. And that’s also why we recommend regular six-month cleanings and checkups. 

We are conveniently located at 3503 North Belt West in Belleville, Illinois, and we are proud to offer a friendly, relaxed atmosphere with unsurpassed, high quality dental care.
