We welcome you to the dental office of Dr. C. Richard Gerber located in St. Marys, WV. Dr. Gerber and his staff take great satisfaction in helping our patients maintain optimal oral health. Our practice is devoted to comprehensive including cosmetic dentistry, and preventative dental care.

Although this is a St. Marys, WV dental practice, we serve patients from a wide geographic area including Parkersburg WV, Vienna WV, Williamstown WV, Sistersville WV, Pennsboro WV, Marietta OH, Newport OH, and New Matamoras OH to name a few. My father, Dr. Gerber brought modern dentistry to the area from his St. Marys, WV dental practice in the 1940s. Attracting patients from areas far beyond Parkersburg, WV and Marietta, OH to his St. Marys dental practice was something in which he took great pride. Just as then, we are still proud to have patients travel distances to be part of our dental practice.

Throughout our website, you will find an abundance of information about our practice, procedures we provide, and dentistry in general. Please explore and learn as much about dentistry and our services as you desire. We believe our patients should have as much information as possible in order to make important, informed decisions regarding their oral health and treatment options.

Our patients are our most important asset, and we strive to develop long-lasting relationships with all our patients. Your referrals are welcome and appreciated.

    Great dentist office! If I were staying in the area this would be my permanent dentist. I was treated as another long term special patient even knowing it would probably only be a one time visit due to only working in area for short time. I came really early however was apologized by many and even the doctors for the wait. Them seemed to pride themselves on being considerate of your time--very refreshing! I would highly recommend Dr. Gerber to anyone in this vicinity.

    Super good with my kids, they get us in and out quickly and are very accommodating!
