Meet Your Manhattan Family Dentist

Steven Chavez

Dr. Steven Chavez was born and raised in Miami, Florida. In high school when he went to get his first job, his father encouraged him to apply to the orthodontist office that was just a few blocks from home. Steven worked there for years, continuing to grow his commitment and education in oral health even once he went off to college at Florida International University, where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Biology.

Working part time at the orthodontist’s office throughout his time as an undergraduate, Steven became certified as an orthodontic assistant. It was then that he realized he wanted to make dentistry his lifetime career.

He went on to attend the New York University College Of Dentistry, where he earned his degree as a Doctor of Dental Surgery. During that time, he engaged with volunteer opportunities overseas in Kathmandu, Nepal and Managua, Nicaragua treating underserved refugees and other community members in need of oral health support.

“I grew up with one dentist my whole life, and the same dentist who treated me also treated my parents for much of their lives. That feeling of having a dentist the whole family can rely on for a lifetime doesn’t exist much in the industry today. It’s something I want to offer my patients — a reminder that my office is here for them today, tomorrow, and in the years to come.”

As a member of the American Dental Association, Dr. Chavez is enthusiastic about continuing education and trends in the field. In the U.S., he has participated with the nonprofit group Survivors for Torture, providing comprehensive dental treatment to international torture survivors. He has also contributed to the Odyssey House Community Outreach Program, providing dental care for community members dealing with substance abuse.

Now, Dr. Chavez lives and practices dentistry in the Midtown East neighborhood of New York City. Making his home and his business here, he hopes to revive the idea of a lifetime family dentist for people in the community.

Dr. Chavez is committed to providing conscientious and exceptional care while exceeding patient expectations. Offering a wide range of treatments including veneers, dental crowns and bridges, root canals, fillings, and much more, he is experienced in treating adults and children alike.

During his free time Dr. Chavez enjoys rock climbing, paddle boarding, and spending time with his wife and two children.
