Dr. Melba Akinwande

Dr. Melba Akinwande graduated from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry. During her time there, she was involved with several outreach programs including an extended mission to Africa to treat the poor and less privileged. Following her graduation from dental school, Dr. Akinwande completed a General Practice Residency at the prestigious University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine where she performed more complex procedures and surgeries in an acute care setting. She has performed hundreds of hours of continuing education to enhance her skills to better serve her patients.

Dr Akinwande’s clinical interests include implant dentistry, restorative dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry. She believes in restoring smiles and giving patients confidence in the most fundamental and social means of facial expression. Because of the breadth of her skill set, most dental procedures can be performed at Chesterfield Dentistry with only a few extreme cases referred out to specialists.

Melba and her husband, Goke, live in St. Louis West County. Her husband is currently a physician at Washington University School of Medicine/Barnes Jewish Hospital. They love to travel, do volunteer missions, and eat at local St. Louis restaurants. Their favorite activity is biking around Forest Park in the summer months.
