About River City Dental
Gentle dentistry is a standard of care not a marketing phrase for us. Wonderful new advances in the administration of anesthetics are used in our office that “wows” our patients.
Meet Our Dentists
Dr. Steger graduated from the University of Iowa Dental School (Go Hawkeyes!) in 1992 and launched Goodhue Family Dental (now River City Dental) in 1993. He holds a Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry and is currently working toward his Mastership, which is the highest Academy of General Dentistry honor.
Dr. Steger’s favorite aspect about being a dentist is the relationships he builds with his patients.
“I really enjoy it when I can make a concrete difference in a patient’s life; when I take a person from a position of pain and worry to a place where the trouble and pain of dental disease or cavities is no longer a dominant part of their lives.” – Dr. Steger
Dr. Steger is a product of twelve years of Catholic schools in Dubuque, Iowa. He is a veteran of the US Marine Corps Reserve.
Away from the office, Dr. Steger volunteers for the Red Wing Care Clinic. He also enjoys attending continuing education courses and reading dental journals.
Outside of Dentistry, Dr. Steger enjoys spending time with his wife, Vivian, their 2 children, Sydney and Taylor, and the family’s one and 3 dogs! Dr. Steger enjoys hitting the gym, downhill skiing and feels fishing is the key to longevity. He is also a self-proclaimed Iowa Hawkeye fanatic.
Dr. Cuevas graduated from the University of Iowa Dental School (Go Hawks!) in 1990 and launched Goodhue Family Dental (now River City Dental) in 1993. She is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry.
An interesting fact about Dr. Cuevas is that she has 2 brothers who are dentists and a sister who is a hygienist! Dr. Cuevas loves being a dentist because she gets to make a difference in her patients’ lives. She also is fluent in Spanish – making communication effortless for those who speak Spanish as a first language.
“I especially enjoy treating children and making their dental experiences positive and fun.” – Dr. Cuevas
Away from the office, Dr. Cuevas is a volunteer dentist at the Red Wing Care Clinic.
