Dr. Steve Edwards
My background has basically been in restorative dentistry. I’ve had 29 years of continuing education in cosmetic, dentures, root canals. We do all the services here. We are a general dentistry practice. We do a lot of cosmetics. We do a lot of restorative dentistry with dentures. There are a lot of people who come to us who have very broken down mouths and it has been a privilege really to try to put them back together. I think probably one of our key type patients has been the dental phobic patients, the patients who have neglected their teeth for 10, 15, 25 years and they have finally reached a point, or a tipping point in their life where they feel like “I’ve got to do something” and those are the challenging and rewarding patients, particularly the ones that are just scared to death of dentistry because I feel like if we can build a relationship with them and they can trust us to such a point that we can take care of their teeth and put them back to health and function, those are our best advocates because a lot of times you always hear the story “Gee I had the dentist who was standing on my chest trying to get my teeth out” and we try to go the complete opposite direction and treat them like a person, treat them with respect and care and show them that we are going to be here to serve them for a long time.
Dr. Steve M. Edwards is a graduate of Baylor University and the University of Texas Dental Branch in Houston. Dr. Edwards has been in private practice for 28 years. He also has been recognized by his peers as one of the top dentists in San Antonio for the second time as feature in S.A. Scene Magazine 2014. He is skilled in all phases of General Dentistry, including cosmetic and restorative dentistry. Our practice has been established in this area for our 30 years. One of the cornerstones of Advanced Dental Associates is our exceptionally high level of service and our ongoing commitment to building long term relationships with each of our patients and their family members. We focus on ensuring that the patient’s needs always come first.
Although a general practice dentist, Dr. Edwards internally handles many specialty procedures that allow patients to receive advanced care by his office without needing a referral to a specialist. This saves the patients the need to be referred and saving both patients and insurance companies the need to pay for more costly specialty services.
When not caring for his patients, Dr. Edwards loves spending time with his wife Bobbi, which he has been happily married to for 32 years. He adores playing with their three dogs Zoe, Abbey, and Lola. He also enjoys working out, traveling, and catching some waves.
