Jonathan W. Silva, DDS or “Dr. Jon,” is no stranger to the dental world. During his youth, he spent countless hours working and volunteering at his father’s practice, Dr. Herbert Silva, who practiced as a dentist in the West County area for over 40 years.

Dr. Jon graduated from the University of Southern California Dental School in Los Angeles, CA and was the recipient of the Academy of Osseointegration Outstanding Dental Student in Implant Dentistry. In 2014, Dr. Jon decided to purchase his own practice from his friend and associate Dr. Michael Lorenz, DDS.

An avid lacrosse, Dr. Jon coaches boys’ high school varsity lacrosse, as well as a local select travel lacrosse club team. When not on the lacrosse field he can be found spending time with his family, working on his house, or playing recreational ice hockey with other local professionals and cheering on the St. Louis Blues.
