Dr. Steven Vaughan, DDS
At Contemporary Dental, we strive to become partners with our patients in the management of their oral health. Whether we are seeing a child or a senior citizen, we want to give patients the tools and advice that will help them maintain and healthy mouth and smile for their lifetime. I first became interested in dentistry when I was young. I had really positive experiences with my family dentist and my orthodontist, and these great interactions led me to my interest in dentistry. I think dentistry is a great profession because it allows me to get to know my patients and really care for them and their oral health over a long period of time.

Dr. Vaughan's Care Philosophy

My care philosophy is one of ethics and conservatism. Almost every procedure in dentistry is irreversible. Because of this, I want to make sure that patients understand when and why we are recommending treatment. They need to know their options as well as what might happen if they defer treatment.

Dr. Vaughan says...

Dr. Vaughan believes strongly in the importance of continued learning.  He followed his predoctoral education with an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency at the Audie Murphy VA Hospital in San Antonio, gaining advanced training in implant dentistry, full mouth reconstructions, and Invisalign. Even today, he continues to obtain quality continuing education and recently became a Master of the Academy of General Dentistry (MAGD).  To earn an MAGD, Dr. Vaughan had to complete 1100 hours of continuing education, including 400 hours of hands-on study across 16 dental disciplines.  Currently, he is working towards Board Certification with the American Board of General Dentistry, a designation held by fewer than 5% of all general dentists.

Dr. Vaughan says...

At Contemporary Dental, we want to be the dental home for our patients.  I have trained extensively in advanced dental procedures like placement and restoration of dental implants, full mouth reconstruction and rejuvenation, and Invisalign.  I try to take care of all my patient's needs directly in our office.  At times, due to certain complexities, we must coordinate care with a specialist to make sure that a case is successful.
