Meet Our Team


Dr. Rodney Lofton, DDS

I am the proud owner of Cherry Hills Dental Group and a general dentist who has advanced training in cosmetic, orthodontics, TMJ disorders and health-focused dentistry.  I am a conservative dentist who takes pride in educating my patients on dental problems as well as on their treatment options.  I feel education is key!

I graduated from the University of Missouri at Kansas City school of dentistry in 1994.  I was accepted into their accelerated 6 year dental program after high school.  After graduating dental school, I returned to the St. Louis area to begin my practice and my family.

I am married to my wife, Michelle of over 25 years and I have 2 boys, Tyler and Ryan.  Tyler is in college in Kentucky studying to be an airline pilot.  Ryan is in high school.

I enjoy fishing, hunting, golf and running.  I am proud to say that I have completed several half marathons as well as a full marathon.

My favorite part of dentistry is meeting new people and helping them feel confident enough to display the beautiful smile that they have always dreamed of having.

I am extremely proud of Cherry Hills Dental Group and of my friendly, dedicated team, most of whom I’ve been working with for over 25 years!

Office Manager

Teresa Click has been part of our team since 1994.  She started as a college student fulfilling her clinical hours at Cherry Hills.  She was hired during this period and started working even before she graduated from East Central College in 1995.  Through the years, Teresa took extra courses to become a CDA with expanded functions.  About 10 years ago, she began sharing responsibilities at our front desk where you can find her now.

Teresa has been married to her husband, Aaron, for 24 years. They have 2 daughters, Taylor (age 21), Macey (age 18).  They live on 45 acres of property spanning along the Meramec River in St. Clair MO.  It is there that she enjoys boating with family and friends in their small-town river community.  Teresa also enjoys reading, decorating, and design.

Because Teresa has been with us for 26 years, she has been able to see children that she has worked with in the past come in as young adults with their own families.  She jokes that Cherry Hills is her second family and often expresses her gratitude at being part of such a great team.

Let us help keep your smile healthy!
