Dr. Seth Freedman

Dr. Freedman earned his DDS degree at the prestigious University of Maryland School of Dentistry in 1995 following his graduation from the University of Missouri in 1991. After working as an associate in a number of practices in Illinois and Missouri, he finally joined Dr. Michael Heiland and the Discovery Dental Centers in 2005.

Now called Freedman Dental Care, Dr. Freedman serves patients of all ages with contemporary family and cosmetic dentistry.

Dr. Freedman grew up locally in nearby Chesterfield and now resides in Ballwin with his wife and two young sons. When he isn't restoring and improving the smiles of Wildwood, he enjoys spending time with his friends and family. Both his sons are active in sports and when they are not supporting the Cards, Blues, Rams, or Mizzou, they can usually be found at a local ball field, tennis court, or golf course.
