Kent Splaingard, DMD
It’s great to hear from so many of our patients in Granite City, Collinsville and Edwardsville about how happy they are with the results of our dental care, and to learn how their healthy, beautiful smiles have served them so well for so many years. That’s the reason I went to dental school in the first place, and I am constantly reminded of how that education touches the lives of people in my community.

I enjoy meeting people from all walks of life. I want them to feel completely comfortable and able to relax during treatment. I understand that each person has individual needs and deserves gentle, personalized care.
The best dentistry is a blend of science and artistry. That’s why at Metro East Dental Care we always go the extra mile to obtain excellent results. We don’t believe in cutting corners, and you’ll see the difference for years to come.Education and Experience
I graduated with honors from Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine in Edwardsville with a Doctorate of Dental Medicine in 1978. I have continued my education in all phases of general dentistry with an emphasis in dental implants, surgery, endodontic therapy, full-mouth reconstruction, and sedation dentistry. It is important to me to be able to offer the newest advances in dentistry to all my patients.In the community
I am a Master of the International College of Oral Implantologists, and a member of both the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation and the American Dental Association. I also feel it is important to give back to the community, which is why Metro East Dental Care supports many charitable organizations and donates time to Give Kids a Smile and the Labor Day Parade.Outside the office
I have lived all my life in the St. Louis Metro East Area, where my wife and I have raised two sons. We like living in a small town while still being close to a big city. We are all big sports fans, especially of Cardinal baseball and Blues hockey, and have a love of fast cars.
We like to travel, especially to Colorado. When I want to relax, I watch sports, work in my garage, or go for a ride on my motorcycle. I am very active in my church and serve on the board of elders. I love to make people laugh and my favorite times are spent just hanging out with family and friends.
