Dr. Helmkamp's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Helmkamp "Dr. Mary Ellen Helmkamp joined the practice in 2012. As friendly and engaging as she is smart and skilled, Dr. Helmkamp is already a hit with our patients. You might say that Dr. Helmkamp has dentistry in her blood; her father and two uncles are dentists. At one point in her career trajectory, she considered joining her father in his general dental practice. Then she was introduced to orthodontics in which she found her passion. Dr. Helmkamp completed her specialty training in orthodontics, earning a Master's Degree, at Saint Louis University where she graduated first in her class. Fortunately, while attending SLU's Center for Advanced Dental Education, she also fell in love with St. Louis. Hailing from Ohio, she earned her Doctorate of Dental Surgery at Ohio State University, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude and was elected into the honorary society of Omicron Kappa Upsilon. Prior to that, she pursued an undergraduate degree in biology at DePaul University in Chicago. She is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, the Missouri Dental Association, and the Greater St. Louis Dental Society. Having spent the last decade focused on her academic and professional education, Dr. Helmkamp nevertheless found time to practice and share the benefits of what she was learning in volunteer work. She has volunteered with Give Kids a Smile, Head Start, Herbert Hoover Boys and Girls Club, and the Junior League of St. Louis. On top of all that, she is a marathon runner! Dr. Helmkamp also enjoys hiking and cycling, as well as cooking."
