Quality Dental Care for All Generations

Dr. Julie Ring

Dr. Julie Ring

Dr. Ring was born and raised in Creve Coeur, Missouri and attended Ladue High School. After graduating with honors in 1988, she attended an exclusive six-year combined degree program at the University of Missouri - Kansas City.  She was one of only 19 students from around the country selected for this innovative program, and she was a member of only the third six-year class to graduate. In 1994, she earned her BA and D.D.S. degrees simultaneously.  It was at UMKC that Dr. Ring met her husband, Dr. Daniel Ring, who was in medical school at UMKC during the same time.

After graduating cum laude from UMKC, she was selected into a one year General Practice Residency at Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, MO. After completing the program, she was selected to stay on and do a Fellowship in Hospital Dentistry.

During that year, Dr. Ring was able to treat very medically compromised patients both in a private practice and in a hospital setting. She gained invaluable experience with management of trauma, geriatric dentistry, dental infections, and other emergencies.

Dr. Ring has set up several dental offices inside of nursing homes, recognizing a need to address an underserved population. Twenty-two years ago, many residents in nursing homes had complete dentures, but through the years, this is becoming less and less common.  I guess all the preventive care and instructions we give to our patients is finally paying off!  People are keeping their teeth longer!

In 2000, after the birth of her daughter Sydney, Dr. Ring decided to focus all of her efforts on her private practice in Chesterfield.  In 2003, Dr. Ring welcomed her second daughter Jordan into the family. Dr. Ring is blessed to have virtually her entire family in the St. Louis region. Her parents live in Chesterfield, her sister, Jackie Reiss, MD, is an allergist in Chesterfield; her brother-in-law Craig Reiss, MD is a cardiologist in Chesterfield, her uncle Jay Seltzer, MD is a nephrologist in town. And, of course, her husband Daniel Ring, MD is never too far away, as his dermatology practice is right next to our office! Though two cousins moved to New York after college, one has moved back (yay!), and the other we're still trying to convince to move back :-)

In her spare time, Dr. Ring likes to do taekwando, spend time with her family, see Broadway shows, and ski.  In fact, Dr. Ring is a second degree black belt working her way toward her 3rd degree! 


 Best Dentist Recognition, again!
