Chesterfield Dentist - Stephen F. Paul, DDS - Cosmetic Restorations & Family Oral Care
Dr. Stephen Paul launched his family practice 43 years ago after graduating from the University of Missouri - Kansas City School of Dentistry in 1974. He was born and raised here in the St. Louis area, where he met his lovely wife, Jane. They enjoy their time together with family and friends as well as caring for their animals at home. These fur babies include dogs, chickens, cats and horses. Dr. Paul's kindness and love for others is exhibited in the way he has taken in countless strays (people and animals) over the years.
Long time employee and friend, Kathy Ferguson, says "Dr. Paul cares so much for his patients and others that he not only takes an interest in their dental health, but their personal lives as well. He takes the time to catch up with them when they come in so that everyone sees they matter to him." The fact that there are patients in this practice that have been coming to Dr. Paul for over 20 or even 30 years speaks extremely highly of his reputation in this city.
