He builds relationships with each of his clients while ensuring they receiving the highest possible dental care.

Growing up as an Eagle Scout, Dr. Stephenson can be found enjoying the Central Oregon great outdoors when he’s not working with patients. Exploring the wilderness, hiking, and mountain biking with his wonderful family are a few of his favorite things. He and his wife Traci have six children: Faith, Kayla, Paige, Carly, Blake, and Jenna.

Juniper Dental has taken care of my dental needs for approximately five years — teeth cleanings, exam, and one crown. The entire staff is efficient, personable and skilled at what they do. They provide great follow-up to help make sure I remember my appointments. I appreciate these good people and the work they do.
