An exemplary example of expertise and compassion. He and his staff made my emergency oral surgery experience less stressful and I would recommend their office to all!

Dr. Reza Movahed and his staff are superb! I've not met anyone with more passion about their work than I have with Dr. Movahed. I work in the Dental field and have been lucky enough to see many of his cases presented at local lectures and I can confidently say he is an incredibly skilled artist. He and his staff go to extra lengths to explain procedures and make you feel comfortable all the way through the process. St. Louis is very lucky to have Dr. Movahed. If you oral surgery see him.

I can recommend Dr. Movahed without reservation. My 21 year old daughter had osteochondroma (bone tumor) in her jaw which caused TMJ and facial asymmetry. Correcting her condition required months or pre-op planning and coordination with an orthodontist, 9 hours of surgery preformed by Dr. Movahed and months of post-op recovery which included continued coordinated treatment with the orthodontist and physical therapist. Dr. Movahed worked tirelessly to assure that my daughter achieved her best

I have always had a severe under bite. It almost looked like i had no chin. I went through a lot of trial and error with an orthodontist only to end up in the same condition. My current orthodontist referred me to Dr.Movahed. I didnt want surgery But now that i have gone through the surgery i see the difference. My bite is better, my teeth look better, my face looks normal,i have chin and a jawline. Dr Movahed is great at what he does.

My daughter and I were impressed with Dr. Reva Movahed regarding his bedside manner, knowledge, concern and desire to 'fix' my problem. We never felt "rushed" . Dr. Movahed listened to all our questions and took the time to explain through x-rays and drawings the cause of my problem and procedures to be used to correct it. All procedures were handled at his office with most up-to-date technology and equipment. Yes, I would highly recommend him to my family and friends.

Dr Movahed was my daughter's surgeon. I cannot say enough about him and the entire procedure he performed on her jaws! He went above and beyond our expectations! He really cares about his patients and their families. Best bed side manner. He is an awesome surgeon and would recommend him to anyone and everyone for any type of dental surgeries!
