Mission Statement

To inform and educate the dental profession and the general public on dental health issues.

Our History

The DCPA was originally formed back in the 1980’s. It was a non-profit organization made up of St. Louis area dentists, dental laboratories, and dental supply companies. They were brought together for the purpose of educating the public about dental health issues. This organization produced educational brochures and advertising that reminded patients that “their teeth deserved the best dental treatment from the dentist of their choice”. After a few years, the group felt that it accomplished its mission and it went inactive. We feel that it is time for it to be reactivated. There is a need for patients, dentists, and area corporations to learn about good dental health and what determines good dental benefits. There is a need to learn about the Affordable Care Act and how it affects dentistry. We are the dental profession and it is our duty to look out for the dental health and well-being of our patients.
