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.
