Meet Dr. Justin M. Stevens
Justin M. Stevens, DDS
My interest in dentistry began at an early age when I had the opportunity to work in my family dentist’s office. I witnessed how providing an exceptional level of care really does have a profound impact on how our patients view oral health. I brought this knowledge with me to Colorado State (Go Rams!) after which I attended the University of Colorado Dental School. During this time, I had the privilege of embarking on a mission trip to Uganda, where I worked with children with the bright and beautiful smiles that had always inspired me. It was then that I realized my life’s passion would be in pediatric dentistry. I felt inspired to bring the highest quality dental care to the children and families in my community and to develop a vision to customize my care for each and every family.
Following dental school, I gained a great deal of experience in the treatment of complicated dental issues through a General Practice Residency at the Portland VA Medical Center and continued working toward my vision at a non-profit Community Clinic in the Twin Cities. I then applied my skills and experience to the University of Minnesota pediatric dental residency program. Having had the opportunity to work with such an incredibly diverse group of patients has instilled in me the confidence to approach and understand each family’s unique needs and desires. To this end, I continue to engage in diverse learning opportunities through my membership in the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Dental Association, the Minnesota Dental Association, and the Minnesota Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, as well as through my position as a Board Certified Member of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
Our journey to Bozeman was driven by our desire to put family first. Giving our two young sons, Wyatt and Owen, the opportunity to grow up in the Gallatin Valley community is the reason we made Montana our home. We have had the fortune of experiencing life in several different parts of the country, and know what a special place we’ve found in Montana. We are having a blast exploring Montana on foot, bike, skis, boats and campers! Please tell us your favorite Montana adventure or place!
