Dr. Dan Rathgeber

Dr. Dan Rathgeber


Dr. Dan is in his 44th year of dentistry and has enjoyed every minute.  As technology and materials improved, so has dental care.  He truly enjoys studying the science of what really works, and more importantly, what doesn’t.

For the last few years, patients have asked him when he was going to retire. His response has always been, “as long as I enjoy it and as long as I can perform at an excellent level, I will continue”.

Dr. Dan is not retiring, but he has planned an inexact exit strategy merging his practice with Dr. Jeff Sindelar and Dr. Chris Guilfoy of Oakville Dental Care, one block down the street.   Dr. Sindelar and Dr. Guilfoy will each spend one day a week treating and meeting as many of you as possible while Dr. Dan is still practicing.

Everything else remains the same.  Same office, same hours, same location, and the same staff you’ve enjoyed for years.  They use the same materials and refer to the same specialists Dr. Dan has recommended to you for years.  He continues to practice with them those two days and solo the other two days each week.

Dr. Rathgeber has trained with some of the world's most prominent family dental specialists, and is well known as St Louis's leading dentist for people who want family dentistry.

Words From Our Patients

I will definitely be coming back.

I will definitely be coming back. I broke my tooth I needed to fix fast and they were more than accommodating. It was last minute and I had to bring all of my kids, not one employee complained they actually came over and helped entertain them. I'm beyond grateful and I will be back in the future but hopefully not for a chipped tooth

"5 Star Expirience"

I have been a patient at Oakville Dental Care for almost 20 years. I have never had a bad experience there. They are always thorough and professional. They always explain what needs to be done and present you with a printed estimate of the cost. You could not find a more informed staff nor any more personal one. The whole office is always up to date on the newest technology. Beautiful people, everyone of them.
