Dr. Stephens was born and raised as a 3rd generation Californian in the Hancock Park area of Los Angeles, and graduated from Harvard High School in North Hollywood. During his undergraduate studies at the University of California, Irvine, Steve conducted research in Psychobiology and played NCAA Intercollegiate golf. After completing his DDS at USC, he began his career along the Miracle Mile of Wilshire Boulevard before moving to Oak Park in 1995. He worked as an associate in a practice closer to home, eventually sold the Los Angeles practice, and permanently settled into his current Westlake Village location in 2003.  Dr. Stephens is now fully dedicated to caring for the wonderful neighbors and friends of the Conejo Valley.

Committed to community and education, Dr. Stephens is on the Seaver Advisory Board at Pepperdine University.

He chaired the L.A. Dental Society’s LADS Foundation Charity Golf Tournament for 10 years, served on the Church of the Epiphany’s Board of Directors for 4 years, chaired the Booster Club Golf Tournament at La Reina High School from 2002 – 2009, and is currently serving as a member of the LRHS Board of Trustees. Dr. Stephens is the president of Pilgrim Foundation, an organization focused on promoting the education of our youth. Each year he is proud to sponsor numerous local schools and charitable organizations, including Girl Scouts U.S.A., Boys & Girls’ Club of the Conejo, Centennial Guild, National Charity League Inc. and various local youth sports programs.

Personally, Dr. Stephens is an avid golfer and total sports fan. He enjoys his barbeque, gardening and spending the day at the beach. But his most cherished and enjoyable activities are those spent together with his wife Stacey and daughters Camille and Jillian!
