Dr. Srdjan Ilic
A native of Serbia, Dr. Ilic moved to the United States in 1997 to attend Quincy University in Quincy, IL as an undergraduate student in the field of Biological Studies. After just three years he graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science. Post graduation, Dr. Ilic followed his dream to become a dentist and moved to Boston, MA to attend Boston University’s Goldman School of Dental Medicine where he finished in the top five percent of his class.
Following graduation, Dr. Ilic returned to the Midwest to work for the health department in Quincy, allowing him to give back to the community that initially welcomed him to the Unites States. He has since worked for a couple private dental offices before starting Prestige Dental Care in St. Louis in 2012.
Dr. Ilic strongly believes in continuing education as a means to stay at the cutting edge of dentistry and routinely enrolls himself and his staff in the best professional development programs available. As a result of his beliefs and these programs, Dr. Ilic’s patients benefit by receiving the highest quality care possible. Continuing education programs have included the Pankey Institute in Key Biscayne, FL and the Spear Education Center in Scottsdale, AZ, homes of two of the best continuing education programs in the country. In addition, he is a member of several professional organizations including the Greater Saint Louis Dental Society, the American Dental Association, and the Missouri Dental Association. Dr. Ilic is a proud supporter of Give Kids a Smile, a local not-for-profit organization that helps to provide free dental care to St. Louis area children with limited or no access to care.
In his spare time Dr. Ilic enjoys playing tennis on both a recreational and competitive level, raising his dogs, and spending time with his friends at local attractions.
