MEET THE DENTIST

Dr. Bernard Tellez

Dr. Tellez is a graduate of St. Louis University School of Dentistry where he became not only a dentist, but a respected researcher and instructor. He established his first practice in St. Louis County, MO and moved constantly toward larger practices, eventually ending up in Kirkwood, MO. He hated to leave his long-time patients in Kirkwood, but saw a great need for dentists in Ozark.

In 1999, Dr. Tellez and his wife Sharon constructed a new building on 22nd Street in Ozark. The practice grew quickly, and he soon had a vision of moving his practice into a brand new building. The beautiful new building is located on Towne Centre Drive, and was completed in 2011. The building houses 14 finished operatories and 4 unfinished operatories.

Dr. Tellez is an active member of numerous dental associations including the Missouri Dental Society and IAO. Dr. Tellez has twice been elected as one of Springfield’s “Top Dentists” by 417 Magazine.

Outside of work, Dr. Tellez likes to golf, travel, loves living in the Ozarks, and has a wonderful dog named Mocha.

“I believe if I provide quality dentistry and maintain fair fees, my practice will continue to grow. My associates and I will be respected as we respect the patients.”
