Meet The Doctors

Dentists at Arnold Smiles--Providing Family Dentistry in Arnold,  Missouri   

Dr. Sarah Graesser Gordon

General Dentist

I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery from Marquette University, after graduating from the University of Tulsa with a bachelor's degree in biology. I am currently a member of the American Dental Association, the Missouri Dental Association, and the Greater St. Louis Dental Society.  I work hard to stay up to date with the latest dental technology and advances through continuing education. I try to give back to the community, via Give-Kids-A-Smile Day and Mission of Mercy, providing dental care to underprivileged populations.  In fact, I became interested in dentistry after serving as a member of a dental team on a ten-day mission trip to Honduras. I love being a member of the Arnold Smiles team and have enjoyed getting to know all of the patients. 

A little about my life outside of dentistry – I was born and raised in St. Louis. My husband, Brian, and I have a little boy, Jacob, who was born in June 2019. We love spending time outdoors. My husband and I enjoy hiking and running road races, from 5Ks to marathons. I have also been an assistant coach for Cor Jesu Academy's cross country team; it has been very rewarding to share my passion for running with the next generation. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. In addition, I am an avid reader, and I’m always looking for good book suggestions!

Dr. Ellen Blattel

I graduated with a DDS from the University of Missouri Kansas city in 2013. After dental school, I completed a General Practice Residency at the VA hospital in San Diego. My residency provided the opportunity to treat complicated dental cases, participate in dental research, and study the close connection between oral and overall health.

 I love learning and continue to expand my dental knowledge with continuing education courses and study clubs.  Staying informed on the latest developments in dentistry helps me provide the best care possible.  I am also a member of the American Dental Association, Missouri Dental Association, and Greater St. Louis Dental Society. My goal is to make my patients as comfortable as possible at the office and with their smiles!

Outside of dentistry I love spending time with my family and being the mom of two wonderful girls. Traveling, camping, hiking and exploring of any kind are some of our favorite activities!

Dr. Erin Mariscal

General Dentist

I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Missouri at Kansas City in 2003. Opening my private practice in 2006 fulfilled my life-long dream. I am a firm believer in continuing education. I am committed to learning new techniques - essential for providing my patients with the highest quality dentistry possible. I hold numerous association memberships including the American Dental Association, the Missouri Dental Association, and the Greater St. Louis Dental Society. My professional activities include working to provide dental care to under served children and adults in the U.S. and in Honduras. Here in Jefferson County, I have worked with the Health Department's "Smiles to Go" program treating under-served school age children in our community. In 2007, I spent 10 days in Honduras on a medical mission trip providing dental care to patients of all ages who have no access to a dentist.

On a personal note, I am married to Marco Mariscal who works in the Kirkwood School District as a German teacher. We have two wonderful children, Noah and Lucia.  Most of my time outside of the office is spent taking the kids to activities and just being a mom.  We also have dog , Eevee (my son named her after the Pokemon character) and a cat, Lily.
