Dr. Steve Dove

As a young child Dr. Steve Dove had orthodontic care, including full-faced headgear. He declared to everyone who would listen he would never become a dentist. Then all the hardware came off, and he saw the satisfying results of his treatment. Shortly after, Dr. Dove decided dentistry was the life for him. To this day, he realizes how important being proud of your smile is, and how life changing dental care can be.

Dr. Dove received his Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Four years later, he received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery also in Kansas City. He continues to be active in furthering his patient care with continuing education courses in many subjects such as cosmetic dentistry, Invisalign, and dental photography. Dr. Dove has also trained with the respected JP Institute.

Quality and caring treatment is what guides Dr. Dove’s daily philosophy. He believes not only do patients care about lasting, long term dental treatment but also the integrity and trust of their the provider and staff. You will find Dr. Steve Dove enjoys getting to know each and every patient personally. These details combine to show the excellent care given at Dove Dental.

When he is not in the office, Dr. Dove enjoys training for triathlons, spending time outdoors and sharing his life with his wife, Kelly (also a dentist), and their son, Clark. Being a Christian is the cornerstone of Dr. Dove’s life, as much of his life is spent following where Christ leads him.
