Welcome to Upward Smiles®, the leader in compassionate, non-profit comprehensive dental care for children and pregnant women. Upward Smiles began in 2012, with Sherry L. Cauley, RDH founding the organization to fulfill the dental needs of underserved children in St. Francois County on Medicaid. At that time, there were no providers in the area that accepted Medicaid. In 2014, we expanded to the Jefferson County area, with our office conveniently located off of Interstate-55 in Festus. Our Sedation Station® was created, constructed, became operational in 2018. Upward Smiles has continuously remained a necessity in the industry for underserved, underinsured patients. As a non-profit, our primary goal is to always serve the needs of our patients in any given situation, regardless of insurance lapses. We accomplish this through a focus on prevention and dental education. Upward Smiles also provides Deep Sedation dentistry to those children who are young, apprehensive, and have extensive restorative needs.
Since we opened our doors, our team of diligent, world-class professionals has changed the lives of nearly 20,000 patients, and we are always accepting new patients. We accept all forms of Missouri Medicaid, and do not charge patients anything for our services. We do not accept private dental insurance such as Delta Dental or payment plans such as Care Credit.
Sound too good to be true? Call our office today to setup an appointment, and give our team a chance to exceed your expectations.
