“Having more than 20 years of experience in general practice dentistry, I have learned to love working with people of all ages and walks of life. General dentistry has afforded me the opportunity to learn and develop procedures that are rewarding both to me and my patients. I have come to greatly appreciate the differences that we all have, but at the same time the oneness that we all share.” — Dr. Steward
Dr. Norman Steward, a second-generation dentist, learned from his grandfather the importance of open and honest communication and a conservative approach to dentistry. Using a team approach, Dr. Steward is able to provide the best, longest-lasting dental health to his patients.
