Meet Our Team
Dr. Charles Hurley
Dr. Charles Hurley attended DeSmet Jesuit High School, and then continued his Jesuit education at Creighton University, where he graduated in three and a half years with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. He continued on at Creighton to earn his Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS).
Dr. Hurley was drawn to the field of dentistry because it afforded him an excellent opportunity to serve his community. He is committed to providing patients with the highest level of dental care and takes the time to stay current with the latest techniques in the field. His primary goal as a dentist is to educate his patient and help them improve their level of oral hygiene.
Outside of dentistry, Dr. Hurley first and foremost, relishes being a father to his sons Patrick, Edward, and Henry, and daughter Grace. Dr. Hurley hopes he can pass his love of the outdoors in rooting on his hometown team, the St. Louis Cardinals, to his children.
Dr. Emily Hurley
Dr. Emily Hurley earned her Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science from Creighton University and then went on to earn her Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) from Creighton as well.
Dr. Hurley comes from a family of dentists, and while these ties were what originally drew her to the oral healthcare field, she found that she loved the interaction with her patients and the ability to help people feel better about themselves by improving their smiles and oral hygiene.
Originally from northwest Iowa, Dr. Hurley moved to St. Louis with her husband to pursue the dream of owning a dental practice. Outside of dentistry, Dr. Emily Hurley enjoys being a mother to her children Patrick, Grace, Edward, and Henry. She also loves reading, hiking, watching college football, and being active in the dental community.
Sheila, one of the first friendly faces to greet you, has worked in the dental field for many years. She is a versatile member of our team and can not only help you with any front office needs you may have, but is often found assisting in the back office, as well! Sheila is dedicated to staying on top of new developments in her position by taking regular classes.
When Sheila isn't assisting patients, she loves spending time with her husband and her children, as well as their many pets! She is most enjoying being a grandmother to one granddaughter and cannot wait for her second granddaughter to arrive. On the weekends, she likes to spend time on the family farm.
