First off I have to say, even though I do look at review sites, I have never written my own review...of anything. I am trying to turn over a new leaf.
Since I used a couple review sites to find this office(beyond a friend's referral), I thought I would give my own. I was a little nervous, becuase they did ask for my CC# to reserve my time. They said as long as I gave 24 hours notice for cancelling or rescheduling nothing would ever be charged...if I didn't show up there would be $40 charge. Like anyone I hate to give my CC info, but I did it, and all was fine. Although nothing special to look at from the outside, the inside was done very nice, clean, updated, and modern. I did have about a 5 minute wait beyond my appointment time, I can handle that. They seemed busy, and Amanda who cleaned my teeth, did apologize for my wait. Not needed, but appreciated. My cleaning was really good, seemed very thourough, and they did have camera that could take pictures of my teeth, which I thought was cool. Maybe a lot of offices have these, my old office didnt so it was new to me. After Amanda was finished, Dr. Short came in. He was very nice, seemed very down to earth, not pushy. I have not had any 'work' done at the office yet, but I can say I am happy I took a leap of faith and tried a new office after going to the same one for many years. So far...4.5 thumbs up for Des Peres Dentistry!
Had a great experience here. I normally loathe going to the dentist, and was very hesitant at first to go to Des Peres Dentistry. However, taking the advice of a coworker I went and was astonished. Dr. Short and his staff provide a very relaxed atmosphere and are easygoing, yet professional in all that they do. I never felt suckered into anything, and was very impressed with both him and his staff. Will definitely be back!
Dr. Short is a first-class dentist who is both professional and personable. From the moment you walk into his office you are greeted by friendly smiles at the front desk. My dental cleaning made me feel cleaner than I had ever felt at a bi-annual visit at any other dentist. I left not only with a clean mouth but with oral health tips on how to prevent issues with my gums. This past March, Dr. Short generously offered to volunteer his professional skills to provide dental cleanings and screenings for homeless women who are residents of Shalom House. Our clients felt SO comfortable and were given access to oral health care that is very rare and hard to find if you are in a position of homelessness. Thank you Dr. Short for extending dental services to women who might not otherwise receive it!!
Dr. Short and his staff are exceptional! They do a great job of making you feel comfortable. The staff is very professional. I never have enjoyed the dentist but I don't even think twice about going now! I am thankful to have a dentist to go to myself and to bring my family to that I trust. What a great experience. I highly recommend Des Peres Dentistry!
I'm a business man who was looking for a professional, courteous, and time sensitive dentist. I got all of that and much more here. The doctor balances great personal skills and professionalism at a high level. I'll never go anywhere else.
I do not recommend this dentist. My husband and I went here when we first moved to St. Louis about 1.5 years ago. I actually always enjoy the dentist, and am always sure to go every 6 months. I have only had one cavity in my life, and my husband hasn't had any. We go to Des Peres Dentistry, and for one, the Dentist was late (i understand, it happens), but two, my husband was told he had 2 cavities and I was told I had 3!! I just didn't feel quite right about it, as we had both been to our past dentist 6 months prior with a clean bill of health. We waited 6 months, found another dentist, got the full x-rays and everything, and NEITHER one of us had ANY cavities! I feel like DPD focuses on cosmetic dentistry, and is worried about the bottom line, as to overcall cavities. We have not gone back, and have since continued every 6 month check-ups with our new dentist (who we both love), and each time, have rave reviews on our teeth. Just be careful in what you're told you need here!!
Best Dental Office – I just want to tell everyone I had the best dental experience ever. Starting with my initial call. Christie worked with my travel schedule to get me in. Amanda the hygienist was so PAINLESS compared to other cleanings I've had. She explained everything, I even got a warm neck wrap and could watch TV if I wanted. Amanda showed me on the TV my teeth so I could see what I needed. When Dr. Short came in he was very nice. He did not try and push me into having work done. The office is very up to date on everything. They make you feel very welcomed.
warning to groupon users!! – a) they are booked through april..so if you're due for your six month cleaning, not the place for you!
b) they want your credit card number if you make an appt, because they charge twenty five dollars if you are a no show. while I understand the purpose of the practice and they SAY they make reminder calls, between the high volume of appts and people just plain forgetting because their appts are so far in the future, I'm just not comfortable doing that….
Very Professional and Accommodating! – My biggest complaint about going to a doctor or dentist is sitting in the waiting room for 30 minutes to an hour after my scheduled appointment. Then, when I finally do get called back, the staff acts like my being there is an imposition on their life…WELL THAT IS NOT THE CASE AT DES PERES DENTISTRY! From the moment I met the staff they were all very professional and accommodating. Everyone was very thorough from the hygienist to the doctor. I will highly recommend Des Peres Dentistry to my family, friends and co-workers.
Highly Recommended – The dentist and staff at Des Peres Dentistry is very friendly, accommodating, and professional! I appreciate their willingness to make every dental visit a pleasant experience. I would recommend their office to any of my friends and family.
