A passion built on service
I am lucky to have built my career around my passion for creating beautiful, healthy smiles. Orthodontics allows me to blend art and science with my love of interacting with people. I am constantly enriched by meeting the people who come into my office. Find me on Google+!
My education and beyond
My road to becoming an orthodontist actually began with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Later, I attended the Southern Illinois School of Dental Medicine for my Doctorate of Dental Medicine. I graduated magna cum laude and was a member of Omicron Kappa Upsilon. I received my specialist training as a resident at Saint Louis University and received the JP Marshall award which is given to the valedictorian of the orthodontic residency.
As a clinical professor at Saint Louis University, I oversee patient treatment and collaborate with other orthodontists on complicated cases. I am constantly learning and growing in ways I love to bring back to my private practice.
A patient-oriented office
I treasure every one of our patients because they make each day a fresh experience. I cannot wait to come to work every morning. As a team, my staff and I strive to provide the highest quality orthodontic care based on employing the latest technology in an affordable and convenient way.
I grew up in Jerseyville, IL, and now I live in University City. My wife, Dr. Amy Varble, works at Dentistry for Children and Adolescents as a pediatric dentist. We have two children, Frances Jane and Calvin, as well as a yellow Labrador named Annie. In my free time, I love to run and recently ran my very first marathon. I enjoy spending time outdoors and with my family. Amy and I are also active in our children's schools.
