About Varble Orthodontics

Meet Dr. Varble

I feel like I grew up in orthodontics. My father had an orthodontic practice in my small hometown of Jerseyville, Illinois. As a teen I was always at his office making retainers and doing odd jobs like mowing the grass or asphalt sealing the parking lot. I loved seeing how much fun my dad had with the patients and it attracted me to the profession. Having the opportunity to meet new families and help them through the orthodontic process is extremely humbling. I love learning and being challenged to develop new systems to improve our patient’s treatment experience. I try to make orthodontic treatment both easy and fun, and strive for happy patients that have felt the journey worthwhile.

Together with my wife Amy, a pediatric dentist with Dentistry for Children, we have made this profession our life.   Amy and I grew up in the same small town and went to preschool together. Once we both decided to attend dental school it was our hope to one day practice together. We are so thankful for the path that has led us to where we are now. Since purchasing our respective practices in 2011, we have strived to provide our patients with the highest quality care in an environment that is welcoming. Our practices are each unique. Dentistry for Children focuses on pediatric dentistry, while Varble Orthodontics provides orthodontic care for patients of all ages.

Amy and I live in Ladue and have two children, Calvin and Frances.
