Meet Dr. Michael Steffen


Dr. Steffen graduated from the University of Iowa School of Dentistry in 1972 with a Doctorate in Dental Surgery. That same year, he entered the Department of Orthodontics at St. Louis University and finished in 1974 with a master’s degree and a certificate in orthodontics. In 1983 he completed the process of board certification to become a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. In 2005, he became a fellow of the American College of Dentistry, and a fellow of the International College of Dentists in 2007.

While earning his dental and master’s degrees, Dr. Steffen was recognized for his writing skills: He won two national essay contests in dentistry. He has since written and published numerous papers in a wide variety of professional journals. His work was published in 1998 in the book The Mosby Year in Dentistry.

He is a clinical professor of orthodontics at the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry, and teaches current concept orthodontics at various locations around the country several times a year through graduate orthodontic programs. To stay current, he is a member of state and national orthodontic societies as well as local and international study clubs.  

Dr. Steffen’s interests outside of orthodontics include spending time with his family, golf, nutrition, reading, and writing.
