Dentist – O’Fallon, MO
Get to Know
Dr. Blake Ferando
Dentistry is about taking every individual patient and tailoring dental care that fits their needs and long-term vision for their smile. Having personally experienced dental trauma and a “bad” dentist before, I know how demoralizing a negative experience can be. I want to provide an environment that empowers patients to better dental health and also builds lasting friendships with the patients I call family.
