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.
