Meet the Doctors


 
Dr. George E. Neal

I am a lifelong resident of Mt. Vernon.  I attended Mt. Vernon Township High School, Rend Lake Community College, Southern Illinois University Carbondale, and Loyola Dental School in Chicago. I have completed the courses of Dawson I, II, and III as well as advanced splint therapy part one and two and completed the Piper I course on TMJ at the Dawson Center for Advanced Dental Study. I have held the offices of President of Jefferson County Dental Society, and Wabash River Dental Society.  I have served on the Peer review committee and currently am a delegate to the Illinois State Dental Society.


Currently, I am a member of the Jefferson County

Dental Society, Wabash River Dental Society, Illinois

State Dental Society, Downstate Dental Study Club,

American Dental Association, and Academy of General

Dentistry. Since dentistry continues to change, I have

completed 500+ hours of continuing education in order

to cater to my patients needs.

 

I enjoy participating in community outreach by actively volunteering in the Mission of Mercy for the State of Illinois. I also have a passion for missions outside of the United States, and have traveled to Brazil twice to cater to those in need of dental care along the Amazon River.

 

 

In my practice, I perform all aspects of general dentistry including: full mouth reconstructions, implants, bridges, crowns, veneers, dentures, equilibrations and bite splints, periodontal therapy, endodontic therapy on bicuspids and anterior teeth, composite restorations, and amalgam restorations.With the above stated, I believe that teaching someone to care about their teeth and how to maintain them is more important than any reconstruction.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Dr. Michael Wes Neal

 

He attended Mt. Vernon Township High School, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville for both undergraduate and master's degrees in biological sciences. He also created and coordinated a zoology laboratory manual which was used in SIU Edwardsville's undergraduate introductory classes. While in graduate school he was a teaching assistant for physiology. Upon completion of his master's degree, six of his research posters were published along with a masters degree thesis. In June of 2015 he graduated from Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine. His passion for teaching carried forward through dental school where he was given the opportunity to be a crown and bridge tutor. He received the Leaders on Occlusion and TMD award while in dental school. Currently, Dr. Wes is a member of the Illinois State Dental Society, Academy of General Dentistry, and the American Dental Association.

 

Dr. Wes's passion is dentistry. As a child, he knew that dentistry would become his future career. Dentistry embraces all of his perceptual talents, past work experiences, personal and professional goals, and is the capstone of his professional career. 

 

He enjoys participating in community outreach by actively volunteering for missions both inside and outside of the United States. He has traveled to Brazil once to cater to those in need of dental care along the Amazon River. He has also traveled to Romania twice to serve the needs of  orphans. Furthermore, his passion is world missions and has traveled to Poland and Thailand. While in dental school, he actively participated in community outreach events and the schools' ethics committee.

 

In his practice he performs all aspects of general dentistry including: full mouth reconstructions, implants, bridges, crowns, veneers, dentures, partial dentures, equilibrations, bite splints, periodontal therapy (including cleanings), endodontic therapy, amalgam restorations, and composite restorations. Dr. Wes believes that teaching people how to properly take care of their teeth and maintain proper oral hygiene is at the cusp of his mission statement for your dental health.
