Dr. Urback's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Urback "Dr. Steve Urback is a native of the Sumner area, attending Dieringer School and Sumner High School where he participated in sports every season. While in high school, Dr. Urback decided on a career in dentistry. He wanted to do something to help people and enjoyed working with his hands, which he expressed by working in wood, carving by hand as well as designing and building larger projects using power tools. He graduated from the University of Washington, earning a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology while satisfying requirements for dental school. As an undergraduate, he also rowed on the Husky Crew for four years. After graduation, Dr. Urback entered the University of Washington School of Dentistry, graduating in 1980 with his Doctorate of Dental Surgery. Dr. Urback and his wife then moved to Chicago in order for him to complete a one year general practice residency at Michael Reese Hospital. He then returned to this area and opened a new dental practice in downtown Puyallup, on Second Street, where it remained until the City of Puyallup purchased his office in order to build a new City Hall. In March of 2006, Puyallup Valley Dental Care opened at its present location in the Riverside Professional Center. Dr. Urback’s interest in sports, and his eight years at the University of Washington, has made him an avid Huskies fan as well as a follower of the Seattle Mariners. His time away from the office is spent with his wife, a local attorney, gardening and traveling, including visiting their son and daughter, both having graduated from college and living out of the area. Photography is an integral part of all Dr. Urback’s activities, as can be seen in all the images in the office, including the note cards for sale to benefit selected charities, especially Medical Teams International. Dr. Urback is the recipient of the following awards: SeattleMet 2012 Top Dentist SeattleMet 2013 Top Dentist SeattleMet 2014 Top Dentist SeattleMet 2015 Top Dentist SeattleMet 2016 Top Dentist '08 South Sound Business Examiner Best Places to Work "
