Your implant dentist in St. Louis, Dr. Matthew Slaven

Dr. Matthew Slaven

Dr. Matthew Slaven, is a periodontist and implant dentist in St. Louis’ Ballwin suburb, and founder of ActOn Implants. Dr. Slaven came to the St. Louis area from his home state of Indiana in the mid-1990s to complete his undergraduate studies at Washington University.

After graduating from Washington University in St. Louis in 1998, he attended the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, where in addition to his clinical work, Dr. Slaven conducted research utilizing growth factors to promote bone formation.

He went on to graduate from Indiana University, earning his M.S.D. and a certificate in periodontics. His master’s thesis was a comprehensive survey of over 1,000 dental implants placed by the graduate periodontics department since 1990.

Dr. Slaven’s research during his graduate work uncovered his true passion for regenerative procedures and dental implants, a focus area he has held since the early 2000’s. This knowledge and passion led to the founding of ActOn Implants in 2011, where he currently serves as the implant dentist for St. Louis area patients. Dr. Slaven also owns and operates ActOn Dentistry, a general dentistry practice with offices in Ballwin, Missouri (on Manchester Road) and Wenztville, Missouri in Western St. Charles County. He is a licensed periodontist, and certified by the American Board of Periodontology. He is a member of the Missouri Dental Association, the American Dental Association, and the Greater St. Louis Dental Society.

Dr. Slaven lives in Ballwin with his wife, Jeni, and two children. He enjoys basketball, exercise and Cardinal Baseball.
