About Our Office

At Lake Forest Dental, our first goal is to establish a relationship with our patients. We slow down and listen to YOU so that we can discover what is appropriate for your needs. We treat the whole person, not just the dental patient.

If you have any questions about how we can care for your teeth & mouth, please don’t hesitate to call or text at (314) 725-2232. Thank you!


Welcoming New Patients

We understand that your first visit to the dentist can feel overwhelming and we try to accommodate all new patients with a comfortable and organized facility.

Our staff has taken the steps to prepare you for the first appointment by providing a full spectrum of the services we offer and the option to complete our new patient form prior to your visit. Our goal is to cover everything you need with a full and efficient assessment, but without waiting to see the doctor.


What Our Patients Say

  • Dr. Telrhorst and his staff are wonderfully pleasant and professional. There is admittedly a certain level of apprehension when it comes to dental care, but I always feel right at ease and know I'm getting the best possible care. Great office!! Great care!!

  • I have been going to Dr T for about 20 years and that should be a good indicator of the kind of services he provides. He is caring, has great chair- side manners, listens to you and does amazing dental work. At one point he became out-of-network with my insurance and, like most reasonable people, I looked for someone in-network. Big mistake. I came running back not even a month later. He is that good that paying the difference was worth it. Thankfully he is back in-network now :) ... and his stuff does an amazing job too. They do listen to your concerns, submit everything to the insurance and deal with that :) ... if you are on the fence choosing a new dentist - go to Lake Forest Dental, you will not regret it ... plus he practices gentle dentistry in the true sense of the word ... btw I have NOT received any discounts or compensation for this review: I truly do mean everything I said ... go, you will not be sorry :)

    Karen, the hygienist was very knowledgeable about the whole process with my TX.
