Belleville Dental Office Adds New, Full-Time Front Office Associate

BELLEVILLE, IL--(Marketwired - August 28, 2015) - Dr. Thomas Feder, a Belleville dentist who provides affordable dentures, has added a new full-time front desk associate to his growing dental practice.

Lauren Theuerkauf joined Dr. Feder's dental team in July and assists patients in setting up dental appointments and works to help patients with insurance and financing issues. Theuerkauf also greets new patients and helps the dental team establish treatment plans.

"Lauren has a great attitude and kind demeanor, and she is very helpful to our dedicated patients," Dr. Feder said. "We are happy to have Lauren on our team because she embodies our drive to offer compassionate and gentle care."

Theuerkauf lives in Freeburg with her husband, Matt Theuerkauf, five rescue dogs and two rescue cats. She enjoys writing and attending charity walk events. Theuerkauf has written a children's book entitled "Priceless Penny," which chronicles the adoption journey of her three-legged dog, Penny.

Dr. Feder said he added a new front desk associate to help better serve his new and existing patients.

"We do not often add new members to our staff, and so far Lauren has been able to make a seamless transition into the team," Dr. Feder said. "It's clear that Lauren loves working with patients of all ages to improve their oral health."

Dr. Feder’s Belleville dental practice, at 16 N. Jackson St., has seven dental chairs, digital X-rays and TVs in each room for patient comfort.

Dr. Feder has been in practice for more than 40 years, providing general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry. He was inspired to become a dentist by his father and great uncle, both of whom were Illinois dentists.

Dr. Feder’s office offers cleanings, exams, fillings, teeth whitening, crowns, bridges, root canals, extractions, dentures and dental implants. He uses a revolutionary tool called the Vibraject to give pain-free injections to patients. The Vibraject sends out vibrations to distract the brain from feeling pain in the area of the injection. The vibration also allows for the anesthesia to quickly take effect.

Dr. Feder graduated from the St. Louis University School of Dentistry in 1970. He served three years with the U.S. Public Health Service, two of which he was assigned to the U.S. Coast Guard. He has been in private practice since 1973. Dr. Feder earned his Fellowship recognition from the Academy of General Dentistry in 1982 and was voted one of America’s Best Dentists in 2013 by the National Consumer Advisory Board.

Dr. Feder is committed to public service and spent 12 years on the Belle Valley School Board. To learn about Dr. Feder's Belleville family dentistry, visit his website at or call 618-219-1412.
