Dr. Nathan Steim

Dr. Nate’s goal is to help people feel comfortable in the dental chair, whether the patient enjoys coming to the dentist or tends to avoid it. He has his own fears when he is the patient, so he understands that it takes trust and compassion to overcome any anxiety associated with a dental visit. Dr. Nate is trained to treat the mouth as a window to your overall health and this connection drives him to improve a person’s well-being.

Patients appreciate the in-depth explanation that Dr. Nate provides when discussing the benefits and drawbacks of their personalized dental care plan. His intention is to ensure that each patient can make an informed decision on their oral health. Dr. Nate routinely takes pre and post-operative intraoral photos so the patient can actually see the results in their own mouth. This gives each patient a clear understanding and helps build strong relationships.

In his free time; Dr. Nate enjoys barbequing, golfing, and exploring the Pacific Northwest with his family.

Dr. Lauren Steim

Dr. Lauren provides a patient-centered experience. She accomplishes this by understanding your personal dental goals and providing realistic options to accomplish them together. She is committed to building strong relationships, with trust and communication as the foundation to delivering excellent dental care.

She enjoys treating patients of all ages and looks forward to providing a family dental home. From a child’s first tooth, to their first set of permanent teeth, she is enthusiastic about playing her role in that transformation. Whether you come in for routine visits or you haven’t been to a dentist in a long time, it is important that patients know that judgment does not exist in her chair. She looks forward to helping you overcome any fear you have about being at the dentist and it is her goal to help patients feel confident in their smile.

In her free time; Dr. Lauren enjoys playing volleyball, hiking, watching her daughters Clara and Ellie grow, and spending as much time possible with family.
