Family Dental Care Fitting Name For Eyres's Practice - Ste. Genevieve Herald

Image
Dr. Blake Eyres’s mother worked in dentistry.But it wasn’t automatic that he wanted to follow in those footsteps.“When I was younger and I decided I wanted to be a doctor, I think dentistry just never crossed my mind, having been in the office so many times,” Eyres said following the recent ribbon-cutting for Ste. Genevieve Family Dental Care at 555 Rozier Street. “After my mom cleaned my teeth one day, the dentist was like ‘Have you ever thought about being a dentist?’ And I was like ‘no.’ He just started talking to me about it and there were just things about it that I really liked.“I’m a very family-oriented person and to be a doctor and not have crazy on-call hours ... it just seemed very family friendly to me, and it’s been a great opportunity to work with my mom.”Eyres took over Ste. Genevieve Family Dentistry at the beginning of 2018 when Dr. Frank Hoover announced his retirement.Eyres was born and raised in Creve Coeur in northwest St. Louis County. He graduated from Parkway N…

By COLBY DENTONJohn Stanbery is a local dentist who remains an active member of the Bradley County GOP while also keeping the area’s teeth clean and bright.The 56-year-old comes from a long line of medical professionals. His grandfather originally lived in Greene County, but later moved to Charleston and established a medical practice in 1925.Following in the grandfather’s footsteps, Stanbery’s father became a dentist,which trickled down to Stanbery as a young man.“Dad was a firm believer in making your own hours and running your own business,” Stanbery said. “A common myth about being your own boss is that you can just take time off whenever you want, which is not true. Sure, you can do that, but you aren’t making any money during that time off.”He added how he often finds politicians incorrigible who constantly preach the importance of vacation days and time off for everyone, because for most Americans who are business owners, those things aren’t based in reality.The biggest reason …

On a cold December morning just before Christmas, Aiken officials joined the staff of Advanced Oral & Facial Specialists in a groundbreaking ceremony for its new location. Oral surgeon Dr. Jennibeth Robles-Velez has been operating Advanced Oral and Facial from the office of Advanced Endodontics at 20 Tea Olive Court, near Centre South. Advanced Oral’s new building will be next door.“This will be the first multi-specialist where the endodontist and the oral surgeon are together,” Robles-Velez said. Her husband, Dr. Shawn Velez, runs Advanced Endodontics. “That allows the patient to have a better experience. If they need an endodontist and an oral surgeon at the same time, we can see them in the same visit. And because we are husband and wife, if he sees a patient and they come back and see me, we won’t charge an additional consultation. The patient saves time and money, and we keep it all in the family.”Aiken Mayor Rick Osbon said the new location is a prime example of successful s…
