Welcome to Clarkson Dental Group, the Chesterfield, MO dental practice of Dr. Scott Mahlin and his team. We have been providing state-of-the-art dental care to St. Louis and West County for over 25 years. Our entire team is dedicated to providing exceptional preventive, general, restorative, and cosmetic dental care in a relaxed, unhurried atmosphere.
Clarkson Dental Group is a smaller dental practice by design. Our goal is to provide a family-friendly vibe with a personal touch—as well as all the professional expertise you would expect at your dentist. Dr. Mahlin and his dental staff cater to patients who expect quality dentistry along with a more personalized level of attention. We take the time to get to know our patients and their needs.
Before your first appointment with Clarkson Dental Group, we invite you to get to know our team by taking a look at our bios below.
We look forward to meeting you and your family! Dr. Mahlin, Jerri, Nikki, Caleb, Kim, Pat, and Lauren
