‘Treating patients as we wish to be treated’

Family Dental Services in St. Peters is a general and multi-specialty group dental practice. Their motto is “dedicated to treating our patients as we wish to be treated,” which means each patient receives the highest level of caring service from everyone in the office.

No patient leaves without being seen by a dentist, said Dr. Robert Rizzuti, who owns the practice along with Dr. Dan Twillmann. The dentists emphasize that they don’t find it necessary to pressure their patients into having expensive dental work done.

“There’s enough work that people need, that we don’t have to go looking for things to fix,” Dr. Rizzuti said.

A team of nine dentists, 11 dental hygienists and 33 support staff members work together to provide comprehensive care for the patients.

The practice offers complete dental services, including check-ups and cleanings, as well as orthodontics and oral surgery. Patients effectively can have most of their dental needs handled in the same place, without referrals to another office. This simplifies dental care as there’s no need to transfer X-rays or files to another practitioner.

In addition, Family Dental Services understands that a visit to the dentist can be scary for children. That’s why they have specially-trained children’s specialists, who take the time needed to explain to young patients what they’re going to do during the exam and cleaning. They make sure kids have a positive – and even fun – experience at the dentist’s office.

The practice was opened in 1968 in St. Charles by one pediatric dentist. In 2002, the office moved to its current location off Interstate 70 and Cave Springs in St. Peters.

Family Dental Services has been fully accredited by the American Academy of Dental Group Practice since 1982. This accreditation ensures the practice meets stringent standards of cleanliness, sterilization, record-keeping, quality control and peer review.

The doctors regularly review and discuss each other’s procedures to assure patients that they will receive the highest quality of care.
