Dr. Rivka Goldenhersh graduated cum laude from Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine in 2010. After many years of experience working in private practices, nursing home and long-term care facilities around the St. Louis area, she is excited to have her own practice in University City. She is thrilled to be practicing in the neighborhood she grew up in and currently lives in with her husband and five children.
Dr. Goldenhersh decided to become a dentist because it was a great way to combine her passions and talents. She has always loved working with her hands and enjoys that dentistry can be an art form, providing her patients with not just a functional but a beautiful, natural-looking smile. She loves studying science, and has a passion for healthcare, and aims to treat her patients keeping total-body health in mind. The best part, however, is getting to know the personalities of the patients she sees. From children to seniors, and everyone in between, Dr. Goldenhersh loves to take the time to understand each individual patient's needs and goals.
Lifelong continuing education is very important to Dr. Goldenhersh, and she spends many hours each year reading and learning in order to stay abreast of the most up-to-date knowledge in the field of dentistry. She is committed to providing you with the best care possible, in a warm and caring environment. She is a member of the Greater St. Louis Dental Society, the Missouri Dental Association and the American Dental Association.
