Our unique location allows us to serve a large area and number of people.  We are located in Godfrey, Illinois, just 30 minutes from downtown St. Louis.  Many of our patients drive from all around Illinois and Missouri.  It’s very common to have patients drive several hours to come to our office because we are unique!  People have become familiar with Dentistry With TLC because Dr. Smith is a monthly guest on Channel 4’s “Great Day St. Louis” and Channel 5’s “Show Me St. Louis.”  Other patients are referred to our office for procedures their dentist does not perform.  And others come to Dentistry With TLC because their physician, chiropractor or dentist referred them here to have their sleep apnea treated and eliminate the CPAP.

Dentistry With TLC has amazing technology that saves you time and money.  Many offices would charge more for great technology.  We don’t!  Our technology allows Drs. Smith and Graul to complete your dental work in less time.  This keeps your cost low and your time in our office limited.  Old-fashioned technology requires the doctor to spend more time with each patient which increases your cost.  Our amazing technologies that save you time and money include laser dentistry, one-day porcelain crowns, Velscope cancer screenings, half-hour root canals, 3D digital x-rays and much more!

It’s all about you at Dentistry With TLC.  We offer complimentary fresh coffee and cold drinks in our reception area, warm blankets if you get cool in the treatment rooms and dozens of up-to-date magazines for all ages and interests.  We have treatment hours from 8 am to 8 pm. Drs. Smith and Graul are happy to work through their lunch or stay after hours to help you.

We offer many financing options. Most patients want to get their dental work completed but may not have the money to pay for the entire procedure up front.  We understand.  Our payment options allow most patients to complete more dental work than expected and pay for it over time.
