Meet Dr. Lear

Dentistry for Dr. Michael Lear is more than just fillings and crowns. Dentistry is the relationships and trust built with his patients and the concern for their oral and overall health. He considers his patients part of his extended family and enjoys getting to know them and their family. Dr. Lear welcomes new patients of all ages, from the first dental visit at a year old and on into adulthood. Dr. Lear would love to add you and your family to his growing family here at Majestic Dental.




Dr. Lear enjoys all aspects of dentistry including cosmetic, implant, and general dentistry. In addition to completing more than 100 hours per year of continuing education, he is active in his local dental society, the American Dental Association, the Missouri Dental Association, and the Missouri chapter of the Academy of General Dentistry, through which he has been awarded Fellowship status (FAGD).

Dr. Lear has studied under great leadership and he thrives to always continue to grow his skills, be current on all the procedures he performs, and have every case completed to the full satisfaction of his patients. His ultimate rewards are in a patient’s smile that can light up a room and when that patient tells all their family and friends about it.


Dr. Lear and his wife Sherry have four children, Megan, Emilee, Brendan, and Hayden, and a grandson named Tucker. His free time is kept full watching his children become adults, taking in a Sporting KC, City SC, Blues, Mizzou, or Chiefs game, or spending leisure days by the pool with a good book. Dr. Lear also enjoys traveling to discover all the great places this world has to offer.

Meet Dr. Sanford

I am a product of St Peters. I have been blessed with friends and family in all corners of the greater St. Charles area. After attending Francis Howell Central, my education took me around the Midwest from playing soccer in Iowa, to obtaining my Masters in Biochemistry at UMSL, and finishing at UMKC Dental School. My dream has always been to return to my community to share my knowledge and talent with all of those that make St. Charles such a great place to raise a family. 

In my free time, my wife, two daughters, and I enjoy playing sports together. Personally, if not in a dental office, my hobbies include masonry, carpentry, hunting, fishing, and all things sports. 

With our move into Cottleville, I welcome all persons to join our dental family at Majestic Dental. An office with advanced technology and techniques designed to replace the negative stigmas surrounding dentistry and care for everyone equally, as I would my own family.

The FAGD Difference

I’m an FAGD dentist! What does that mean for you and your family?

FAGD stands for Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry. Earning Fellowship takes dedication to dental continuing education (CE) beyond graduation.

Only about 6 percent of general dentists in the U.S. and Canada are AGD Fellows. When you see a dentist with FAGD after their name, you can rest assured that they care about knowing the latest techniques and best practices in dentistry. AGD Fellows practice these techniques in a classroom setting multiple times a year — not every dentist does this.


To become an AGD Fellow, a dentist must:

  • Complete over 500 credit hours of CE.
  • Earn 350 of those 500 credits in live courses.
  • Pass an exam equal in difficulty to board certification exams.
The FAGD Difference at Majestic Dental

Meet the Team



I have been a Registered Dental Hygienist for over 30 years, graduating from St. Louis Community College at Forest Park in 1991.

My favorite part of being a Dental Hygienist is seeing a positive transformation of a patient’s oral health over time and educating patients on the mouth/body connection, and the importance of periodontal assessments, routine cleanings and care, and good home habits.  I love meeting people and getting to know my patients over the years of seeing them every few months.

I have been married to my husband, John, for over 30 years and we have three awesome daughters.  We also have very spoiled doggies.  As a family we enjoy spending time together doing dinners, vacations, and sporting events.  I enjoy reading, exercising, and gardening in my free time.



I have had the honor to assist patients in their dental hygiene needs since 2009.

My goal is for every patient I encounter to leave with a better understanding of their oral health and a clean smile.  I enjoy working with my fellow team and making the best of every day.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children.



I have been a dental assistant since graduating from dental assisting school in 2009, and immediately was offered a position at what is now Majestic Dental.  Most of the time you will see me in the clinical area assisting Dr Lear for procedures.  My goal is to be kind and compassionate so that all our patients can have a great dental experience.

One of my goals is to establish great communication with our patients so they are informed about their health and at ease during procedures.  The entire team at Majestic Dental works together to make our office calm and professional, but also as fund as possible!

I love my family.  Although I don’t have children of my own, I do have a little fur baby.  I love to spoil my nieces and nephews.  I built a house with my boyfriend and can’t wait to see what the next chapter holds!



My journey as a dental assistant started in 2016 when I attended and completed training.  I joined what is now Majestic Dental in 2017 to assist with patient care including keeping the patients informed about upcoming procedures and aftercare along with assisting Dr. Lear.  Interacting with the patients is one of my favorite parts of my day.  I enjoy the variety my day at the office offers with no two days being the same.  

When I’m not busy at the office, I enjoy spending time with my son, Lucas, taking our dog on walks, playing volleyball and kickball.  I also enjoy traveling and spending time with friends and family. 



I have been with the Majestic Dental Team since 1999. I enjoy interacting and building relationships with our patients. I help to ensure that Majestic Dental runs as smoothly as possible. This includes attending to accounts receivable, patient treatment, and managing the office. I love working with insurance companies and getting the most benefits for patients with their insurance. My priority is to ensure all of our patients have a wonderful experience. 

I love working with Dr. Lear and the rest of the team because we are all team players. We know how to get work done but have a great time doing it. We are all great friends!

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time outdoors, traveling, and being with my family. 


I attended the University of Mississippi and obtained my Bachelor’s of Business Administration with minors in Chemistry and Biology in 2022. I have been working at Majestic Dental since August of 2022. From a young age, dentistry interested me, and I am passionate about both the clinical and business aspects within dentistry. Furthermore, I strive to continue to educate myself daily. 

My favorite thing about my position is interacting with patients and getting to know them personally. Also, I enjoy helping patients maximize their benefits in order to assist them in being able to comfortably complete their treatment. Moreover, I love working with the whole team at Majestic Dental!

I married my husband, Matthew, in August of 2023. In our free time, we love to go on walks with our sweet mini goldendoodle named Biscuit, travel to visit our family, and try new places to eat.


I have been in the dental field since 2019 and have truly loved it. I joined Majestic Dental in 2023 and it has been a rewarding experience. I enjoy working with patients and helping them to understand not only what they can expect during any procedure, but also helping them interpret and utilize their insurance benefits correctly. 

Majestic Dental has a wonderful team player attitude, and each team member works to ensure that everyone’s dental experience is explained and as comfortable as possible. Our goal as a team is to make sure every patient leaves happy and completely satisfied with their experience from checking in to checking out. 

I am married and have a fun filled son who I adore. My favorite things are spending time with my husband, our child and three furry animals. During our free time we enjoy doing all things outdoors including spending most of our summer at the Lake of the Ozarks.  


I started my journey with Majestic Dental in September 2023. My interest in dentistry became a reality in 2020, and am so grateful to be in this field. I enjoy helping others and being part of a team that also takes pride in seeing others smile. 

I do not have any children of my own, but I have my two St. Bernard’s who are my everything. I have recently become engaged, and I am excited to start planning a wedding. I grew up in the St. Louis area my entire life. I am the oldest of 3 kids. 

I love being around my family and friends. On the weekends we like spending time with each other. When I am not with my family, I love doing DIY projects whether it’s in my own home or something I can redo and make look new again.
