``Touch their heart before asking for their hand.``

What makes Optima Dental Group so different?

That answer is simple. Just pick up the phone, and call Optima Dental Group. You’ll meet Dr. Michael Edwards. He’s one of only about 300 dentists in the world to be certified in an advanced type of dentistry that can get you out of pain, improve your overall health and take years off your appearance. He’s the only such dentist in the St. Louis area, and patients are driving for hours to take advantage of his specialty and experience. If you want to keep your teeth for a lifetime and achieve the smile of your dreams, you need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Edwards.

The problem is that most of dentistry operates via a disease/repair model of care. You have a problem and the dentist fixes it. “Health” may be on the practice letterhead, but it’s not in the philosophy of care. At Optima Dental Group, we approach things a little differently — we include you in the conversation and the planning of your care. We address short-term concerns while building a foundation of health that can last a lifetime.  Stop wasting money on treatments such as crowns and bridges if your gum health isn’t stable or you’re battling decay. If you want to get off the hamster wheel of traditional dentistry then Optima Dental Group is the right place for you, and Dr. Michael Edwards is the best dentist for you.

Our practice’s involvement in organizations, such as the St. Louis Institute for Integrative Medicine and the American Academy for Craniofacial Pain, allows us to care for even the most challenging medical and dental conditions.

The Dental Button®

Dental ButtonEighty-five percent of Americans experience some form of dental anxiety — from slight discomfort at the dental office to an extreme sense of phobia.

Dr. Michael Edwards knows and understands that some patients get nervous just thinking about going to the dentist. That’s why he invented The Dental Button® to show his patients, he cares about them and understands their anxiety about visiting the dentist. To ease their fears, he’s even willing to share control of his drill. If, in the unlikely event you ever need to stop a drilling procedure, you can. Simply press the Button and the drill stops immediately. The Dental Button® is changing the dental experience across the U.S. and in seven countries around the globe.
